About us

The company

Founded in Stockholm in 2009, Get Hunted has grown to become a trusted research partner for Corporates, Recruiters and Executive Search Consultants both locally in Scandinavia and throughout Europe  and at an International level.

Since our inception we have performed more than 800 searches across all industries and levels, and have interviewed and recruited candidates from all corners of the globe.

Today we are a network of researchers managed from HQ in Gothenburg and our office in HK. We cover all major global markets, and our researchers have specialised in different industry sectors.

The people

Ida and Kellen have been working together since 2017. They were brought together by two big brains, Tom Helton and Dr. Jerry Eppler, to work on a project surrounding the United States Army’s Organizational Effectiveness Program. Despite completely different backgrounds and geographical locations, a fruitful working relationship naturally started growing based on common values and interests,  and resulted in todays partnership. Get Hunted consists of several independent researchers located in different geographical areas, and possessing different specialties.



We believe in holism – in the sense: “the whole is more than the sum of its parts”.

As applied in our work, this means that finding a new candidate for your company or organization is more than matching a CV with the profile’s requirements. We believe that when both candidates and organizations take the time to be Thoughtful, about what creates Balance in personal lives and professional roles, that adds the dimensions of Sustainability and Purpose, – which we believe are the keys to both personal growth and sustained organisational success.  When making decisions, creating our strategy, or advising our clients and candidates, we are inspired by the concept of Ikigai, and the Principles of Permaculture.

In our personal lives, the application of holism means that we focus on having a healthy work-life balance. We pursue activities that give us joy and energy and we take time for both restitution and personal development. Only when we are balanced and feel purpose can we assist others in finding theirs.

Ida Brynildsen

“I have worked in the recruitment industry since 2006, and I started my search career at large international recruitment companies. That is where I got my formal training in the profession of executive search research.

After recognizing the market demand for independent candidate sourcing services, I founded Get Hunted in 2009, and since then I have assisted Scandinavian and International clients with locating candidates for their vacancies, as well as training other researchers.

I am a generalist, working within all industries and segments. I specialize in how to analyze an industry, what questions to ask, how to locate relevant candidates and how to approach them in a professional manner. My childhood dream was to become a detective. My job as a researcher is pretty close, and I love it!”

“My first introduction to executive search and recruitment was in 2009 when I entered into an internship with a large multinational search consultancy.


Working in the executive search field not only allows, but forces you to learn something new every day which I thoroughly enjoy. Beyond this, we are extremely fortunate to work with some of the brightest minds across a wide array of industries at Get Hunted, and are small enough to forge lasting bonds with our clients and candidates yet large enough to take on robust, interesting searches.

We truly do live by our values of balance and purpose and outside of work I am passionate about getting outdoors as frequently as possible and spending as much time in and around the ocean.”
