Sam Wellalage

Sam Wellalage is a global Web 3/ Metaverse Recruitment leader with over 10 plus years of experience in Talent Acquisition.

Sam is the first point of contact for the biggest brands in the world that are aiming to dominate the Web3 space.

He works closely with CEOs of billion-dollar hedge funds, hypergrowth startup founders and HRDs, advising them on recruitment and retention strategies and employer branding in Web3/Metaverse and Crypto.

Sam is the number one choice and exclusive retained partner for the most well-known brands you have heard of worldwide.

He has vast experience in executive search and is connected to a global Blockchain, Crypto, Metaverse and Web3 talent pool.

Sam was an ex-professional athlete ranked national number 1 in his birth country, Sri Lanka. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Human resources and a master’s degree in international business from the University of Keele, UK.

Sam’s life mission is to give back what he learned and earned. He is passionate about giving opportunities to children from underprivileged backgrounds, which is why he allocates 10% of his business profit to his charity, “untapped future”.

“I consider every business I work with as if I am part of it; this mentality is passed down to every team member. This helps me and my team be accountable for our work, producing exceptional results every time. 85% of our business is repeat business, which shows the quality of our work.

I have been successful in recruitment business I setup because of the way we do business. In such a fast-moving environment, many people are focusing on short-term gains. That’s not our style. We believe in making valuable, long-lasting connection with candidates and clients. Every success reflects well on our business, so it’s a win-win situation.”
