How can you reach this super talent?
1.

The objective is to thoroughly break out the companies and teams at the companies of interest. Focus the efforts on comprehensive organization charting.
2. Find biographies of those uncovered by step 1. This again which will help you understand who is in each role, their backgrounds, education and the responsibilities of each.
