Do they have the brains and the balls to go all the way?” When hiring for a position at director level, Stockwood, himself, is the next rung on the ladder. “It’s strange,” he says. “But I’ve got be able to imagine them, basically, doing my job.” Match.com is an online dating service with more than 20 million members in 37 countries worldwide.
