"Stuart is doing a great job as Gaikai's in-house acting VP, HR and Chief Talent Officer reporting to me. He has recruited the best of the best talent from Australia, the Netherlands, the UK, Russia, Germany, South Korea, France and the US. Gaikai has developed new cloud streaming IP requiring Rock Star quality employees....currently hiring over 90 in just 1.5 years thanks to Stuart. He is the Rolls Royce of recruiting, a terrific negotiator, a Rock Star himself with high integrity and loyalty."
-David Perry, Video Game Industry Veteran, Founder & CEO of Gaikai Inc.
Gaikai was Acquired by SONY in 7/2012 for $380 million. TechCrunch and other media outlets wrote "SONY WAS ACQUIRING GAIKAI'S GREAT CLOUD GAMING ENGINEERING TEAM." Point of fact: Stuart Trautenberg Recruited & hired 90% of the Gaikai team on site for 2 years from scratch. S.A. Traut Associates owned and built Gaikai's Talented Engineering Team from around the world...behind the scenes. Gaikai was a blank canvas and S.A. Traut Associates was hired by the Founders to paint a masterpiece.

"Stuart Trautenberg was Raza Foundries' ace recruiter building several pre-IPO start-ups for us. I recall that each start-up invited Stu to stay on as VP, Human Resources. Stu once hired 66 new employees in 3.5 days. He saved Raza Foundries over $2 million in recruiting fees."
-Don Basile, current CEO of Violin Memory, former CEO of Fusion-io and former VP & Managing Director of Raza Foundries
"Stu, you have been awesome — as an incredibly productive recruiter, as a member of the team, and as a friend and confidante especially to our new hires. You have been instrumental in building the Cloud team to where it is today, and are continuing to perform exceptionally for the organization through this very day. I, and many many of us here, are very sad to see you go — it is truly a loss, and you will very much be missed. Thank you sincerely,"
-Uri Sarid, current CTO of MuleSoft Inc, former VP of Cloud Services for Nook at Barnes & Noble
