@bout Us

Since 2000, @nswerQuest Technologies has been one of the fastest growing offices in the executive recruiting industry. AQT specializes in high-level Technology Sales and Pre-Sales Talent in emerging and established organizations. Our focus is Sales Talent in the following sectors:

Hear What Our Clients Have to Say

Your team consistently produces a wide range of extremely qualified candidates in a very short time frame. I have always been impressed by the level of talent they put in front of me.
Mark Cravotta

VP Worldwide Sales, Datapipe Managed Global IT Services

Our recent search to fill a key Senior Account Executive position in Texas has resulted in a great hire for ThoughtWorks. AnswerQuest took the time to fully understand not only what we were looking for, but the subtle elements of ThoughtWorks’ culture so that the perfect candidate could be identified. Martin Schwartz showed great initiative and business savvy throughout the process. Christine Cohen worked tirelessly to find and guide the candidate both before and after the offer. You guys rock! And – we have another search underway and again it looks like we may have another success! Answerquest is really coming through for ThoughtWorks.
Bruce Ferguson

VP & Market Principal Central US & Eastern Canada, ThoughtWorks

First impressions are lasting, and my initial thought upon speaking with Martin Schwartz is that he is a true professional. Martin was proactive in helping to not only address any questions and concerns I had, but helped to build relationships between myself and potential employers. Martin respects how valuable time is for others, and from our conversations over the years, he understood exactly what type of job opportunity I would be interested in, and aligned me quickly with the best match. My positive experience with Martin makes him one of only a select few recruiters that I will consult with in the future.
Sean Derrah

VP Sales, Soundbite Communications

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Martin Schwartz for the better part of 10 years in my capacity as EVP Global Sales and as a Partner with a major consulting firm and found Martin and the rest of the answerQuest team to be the most dialed-in recruiting organization among their peers. In particular, Martin has the uncanny ability to profile just the right candidate at just the right time. His ability to focus on both “cultural fit” and candidate track record has saved both me and my team a lot of time and this is something that the other firms cannot match. Additionally, I’ve found Martin to be both highly responsive and ethical. It is a relationship that I will carry forward in the future and will continue to recommend to all of my colleagues. It has been a pleasure to work with Martin and the rest of the professionals at answerQuest.

Martin Schwartz

Martin Schwartz

CEO of Fun

Martin Schwartz was born in Columbus, Ohio and raised in South Florida. After graduating from the University of Florida and Nova Southeastern Law School, Martin interviewed with a recruiting firm to find a position. Today, Martin is the CEO of that recruiting firm known as @nswerQuest Technologies. Martin has worked for only 1 company his entire career and is still recognized as one of the top Executive Recruiters in the country.

Some of his many accolades include finishing #1 worldwide in the MRI network out of 4,500 recruiters. Martin and his team have produced 7 figures in revenue annually and generated more than $15 million in fees over 15 years. Martin purchased the company from his only boss in 2015 and has increased revenue every year since. Martin is defined by his energy, enthusiasm and his passion for life. He is known for hating to sleep (intentionally 5 hours a night). He is the ultimate motivator and prides himself on making others better around him. His two loves in life are family and THE Ohio State University. Both of his parents attended Ohio State and gave birth to the biggest Buckeye fan in the world.

Martin is married to his wife Randi and they live in Davie, FL with their 3 beautiful daughters Sydney, Alexa and Morgan and their dogs Teddy (after Ted Ginn, Jr. – a Buckeye) and Mandy. Some highlights of Martin’s life include being the batboy for the Florida Marlins (1993-1996) and singing on stage (multiple times) with his favorite artist, Billy Joel. Martin went to that concert with the goal of getting on stage and like everything else he does, he succeeded. He also is the selfie king, taking pictures with over 1,000 celebrities over the years.
