(Reuters) - As a marriage counselor years ago, Neil Clark Warren saw first-hand how incompatibility led to unhappy matches.
So the compatibility factor was key - even in the name - when he co-founded online match-making service e Harmony in 2000.
In the meantime, visitors to can sign up either as a job-seeker or recruiter.
Work on the project has been under way for more than a year.
Warren retired from e Harmony in 2007 but came back as CEO after five years to turn around the business, whose growth was slowing in the face of increasing competition.
He cut jobs, bought back shares from Sequoia Capital and slashed the nine-member board to two (now three) - himself and “very close friend” Greg Penner, founder of Madrone Capital and now chairman of Wal-Mart Stores Inc.
Earlier this week, I sat down with Warren -- his wife, Marylyn, of 57 years by his side -- to talk about the rough patches, the competition, and of course, the highlights.
