When it comes to cutting edge technology in the talent space Guy Halfteck, the CEO and Founder of Knack, is in the vanguard of the drive to create a truly inclusive approach to employment, where it is potential rather than credentials that determine employment and role suitability.
Guy founded Knack in 2012 (read the fascinating founding story here). On the team he has Jeremy Gray, a former Yale University professor of cognitive psychology. He also works with Alvin Roth, a Nobel prize winner in economics and game theory.
Knack is advised by Thomas Kalil, who served in the White House under Presidents Obama and Clinton, helping design and launch national science and technology initiatives, and is currently the Chief Innovation Officer of Schmidt Futures; and by Mark Howorth, formerly Senior Director of Global Recruiting at Bain & Company.
