Scottsdale-based Purpose Driven Executive Leadership Search Firm Adds Two Accomplished Members To Growing Team

Y Scouts hires Aaron Bare to newly defined role of VP, Strategy and Innovation and Tasha Hock to Leadership Search Director role covering CEO, CFO and CPO roles for High-Growth and Fortune 500 Companies.

Scottsdale, AZ, February 6, 2018 – Y Scouts continues to grow and is proud to welcome Aaron Bare as the newest addition to their staff. Aaron Bare will take over the duties as Vice President, Strategy and Innovation overseeing product development, growth, sales, marketing and innovation. Tasha Hock also joins the company as Leadership Search Director, assisting in the efforts to find and fill purpose-based and performance-proven leadership projects for Y Scouts’ expanding client base.

Aaron Bare joins Y Scouts with 20+ years’ experience in Human Capital, most recently as Chief Innovation Officer at Purposely, a company that Bare founded in 2012 and sold in 2015, yet continued to work there until 2017. Bare has experience as Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Arizona State University and Thunderbird School of Global Management, having created and sold 12 companies in his career. Before that, Bare spent time at Accenture as a management consultant and the Vanguard Group as a flagship registered representative.

Tasha Hock’s addition to the team helps expand Y Scouts’ reach into the midwest. Hock resides outside of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and will be focusing her efforts on identifying and aligning purpose-based and performance-proven leaders within the growing Y Scouts’ client base. Hock comes with more than 20 years of leadership and talent management experience at McKinsey & Company, Thrivent Financial, and, most recently, Cargill.

“We look forward to have someone of Tasha’s caliber join our team to assist in the growth and impact of our clients, as well as our own. Her years of experience will help drive our mission of connecting great leaders with great companies,” said Max Hansen, CEO of Y Scouts.

Aaron Bare looks forward to leading innovation at the firm.“Y Scouts has been at the forefront of innovation in leadership and hiring since its creation in 2012. I look forward to expanding those efforts as we find executive leaders for organizations, and as we establish what the future leaders in the workforce will look like,” Bare said.

“We are excited to have Aaron Bare join the team. I worked with Aaron about 10 years ago and remember the level of impact we helped to create. He has been instrumental in doing all the things needed for a company to be successful,” said Brian Mohr, President of Y Scouts.
