Leadership

Hank-Levine

President and CEO

Hank is passionate about building iPlace into a great company that transforms the lives of its employees, clients, and recruited candidates. He is responsible for business strategy and sales. Hank brings 32 years of experience in sales, business development, marketing, and general management with offshore outsourcing, telecommunications, energy, venture capital-backed software companies, and pure start-ups.

Prior to founding iPlace, Hank launched and headed one of the largest offshore businesses providing recruiting services from India to American staffing firms. Before moving into offshore recruiting, Hank created the marketing and business strategy for five companies – three of which were acquired for a total of $92 million, and negotiated over 50 strategic partnerships and alliances.

In his first job, Hank designed components for fusion reactors that one day could be used to produce energy. He also received two patents, one for fusion research and the other for touch screen applications for home automation.

Hank has traveled through more than 20 countries and been to India about 40 times. On his 40th birthday, Hank tried one of the most adrenaline filled challenges – jumping out of an airplane. He smoothly stepped outside the plane for a little air and even pulled a James Bond from 15,000 ft. His jump was captured on videotape, but his wife mistakenly swapped the videotape with a “Barney” tape she rented from the library for his children, and he never saw it again. Hank’s hobbies include rooting for all Pittsburgh professional sports teams, investing, and reading about business and technology.

He loves hockey and one of his favorite quotes is, “It’s a great day for hockey.” – Badger Bob Johnson, former Penguin coach.
