Alan Cutter

CEO

AC Lion International

In the jungle of recruiting, Alan Cutter is the lion. Alan founded New York City's premier digital media recruiting agency, AC Lion International, over 15 years ago and continues to lead the growing company as their fearless CEO. From search, ad agencies, and publishers to DSPs and third-party data providers, Alan steers AC Lion through the intricacies of the integrated and digital media space. With offices in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Israel, AC Lion has placed thousands of people and negotiated over $75 million in compensation. AC Lion was recently named one of the Top Ten Entrepreneurial Places to Work by NY Enterprise Report.

Prior to AC Lion, Alan was senior manager at OTEC and played an integral part in the company's evolution into HotJobs.com. Much of Alan's success can be attributed to his belief in and passion for people; ask any of Alan's clients, employees and he/she will speak volumes of their boss's care, consideration, as a compliment to his innovative thinking and out of the box problem solving capabilities.

If you don't see Alan in the office, you can find him in Long Beach with his wife, Jessica, two kids Cobi and Avra, and their beloved surfboards.
