About Dan Smolen At the start of 2018, Dan Smolen turned off the lights at his executive recruitment firm, The Green Suits, LLC, and ended his headhunting career. After a rewarding 20-year-run career of placing hundreds of best-match professionals within client companies, Smolen recognized that even his most successful job placements did not guarantee the long-term happiness of the parties involved in the process, especially the placed candidates.

It protects the planet, empowers people, and is fun.
