Forshay is a new kind of talent firm. We curate exceptional talent, then partner with progressive companies that need top-tier people to achieve ambitious goals. We help our clients scale quickly, taking on critical work with the help of our interim consultants—or hiring the right full-time employees through our hybrid approach to search. And we care as much about our talent as we do about our clients, matching each specialist with the challenges and cultural fit that bring out his or her best work.
I’m often asked, “Why did you name the company Forshay?”
The process involved a few branding brainiacs (thank you Nina, Jennifer, and David), and possibly several glasses of wine. And when we hit on the name, the reason for it was very simple.
The inspiration for my becoming an entrepreneur was my brother, Will Forshay. When Will was 37, he was killed in a plane accident. At the time of his death, I was eight months pregnant with my first child. I had been working the long hours Silicon Valley demands, commuting into the office every day and staying far too late. When I heard about Will, I flew to the crash site. That day, my mom told me that as much as I loved my work (and I do love my work), I couldn’t know how much time I would get with my son. She encouraged me to find a new way to blend work and family so I would have no regrets about whatever time I was given with my boy.
So Forshay stands for all people who love their work—and who strive to do their best work while living full lives with no regrets.
