Sam Piane

People Support, Connector

Starting with a degree in architecture, and an exciting creative career built in the design world of Chicago, I moved to New Zealand in 2014.

I immersed myself in architecture, design and the startup industry, gaining a wide grasp of the creative landscape and the ever-changing nature of careers in NZ.

With 10 years of real-world experience working across creative industries, I am able to match highly skilled talent into roles with innovative businesses.

I am excited to be in the Sprout Family, as nothing about my career has been traditional. Sprout's values are actively practiced as preached. Sprout is an inspiring and innovative company helping inspiring and innovative companies. I'm stoked to be able to help small Kiwi businesses blossom into something even greater.

While I work by day as people support, in my free time I still turn my attention toward design, as well as spending ample time with my kiddo and family.
