BlueGlue was founded in 2005 by Bill Ingram and David Johnson, a former recruitment consultant and a technology company CFO.
They were unbelievably excited by the UK start-up scene. Bill saw how much help entrepreneurial technology companies needed with the hiring process. Bill witnessed that the traditional recruitment model didn’t compliment their business needs, and that a new solution was required.
David knew that CFOs, like him, needed to bring the cost of hiring down, but with higher quality candidates and less recruitment administration. Together, they had a vision, and they created an innovative, agile, high touch hiring solution – BlueGlue.

Rumour has it that inspiration struck on a cliff-top in Colorado.
