Strategic Advisor


As an accomplished strategic and operational executive, Kasner serves as independent board member, strategic advisor and operating partner to Founder CEOs. Leveraging his “Execution Framework,” he advises on strategic planning, operational alignment, and scaling fast growth businesses. He has also spoken on the subjects at various industry events and executive forums.

Prior to his current roles, Kasner was an executive with iCIMS, the #1 recruiting technology platform, where he grew the business from $20M to over $250M ARR. At the same time, the company’s employee base grew to over 1,000, and continued to be named one of the Best Places to Work nationally and in New Jersey.

With more than 20 years of executive leadership experience, Kasner led iCIMS’ efforts for continued fast growth and scale. During his decade long tenure, Kasner served in various leadership roles, including mostly recently, as interim CEO. An east coast “unicorn”, iCIMS was valued at over $1B in 2018, when Vista Equity Partners purchased a majority stake in the business.

Kasner first joined iCIMS in early 2010, as the Chief Corporate Development Officer, to accelerate the growth of the company. From 2014 to 2017, he served as the Chief Financial Officer, and was responsible for the General and Administrative operations of the business, including finance and accounting, infrastructure shared services, talent and legal affairs. Kasner was named CFO of the Year in 2014 by the New Jersey Technology Council. Promoted to President in 2017 and then interim CEO, Kasner led the team in its next phase of growth and sale to Vista Equity Partners. In 2020, Kasner transitioned the helm to Steve Lucas, former CEO of Marketo (a Vista portfolio company) and then served as advisor to the CEO.
