intelligent, mindful, strategic recruiting for busy hiring pros
I am a retained Executive Recruiter, hired exclusively by companies to identify, engage, and hire, exceptional, senior and executive-level talent that matches a company's business, culture, and revenue goals - present and future.
I specialize in recruiting Director, Vice President, and C-Level positions.
I have recruited for and out of a wide range of companies and industry throughout my 20+ year career in executive search, including cable TV, cloud, CPG, entertainment, food & beverage, healthcare, hospitality, luxury, manufacturing, media, mobile, OTT/streaming, professional services like accounting and law, publishing, software, trade associations, and transport logistics.
I have worked directly with hiring leaders at PE-backed and founder-led companies; I have worked with SMBs and the Fortune 20 - 500.
Before becoming a recruiter, I worked in PR and Communications positions at some of the world's leading "brands," including Edelman, Tavern on the Green, and Vaseline.
A career in strategic communications prepared me for a successful career in executive search, as it taught me how to target and engage the right audience (s). It also sharpened my communications skills - a necessity for working with senior-level talent.
When working on a search, the executives (candidates) I am proactively identifying and recruiting are busy. More often than not, they are already working in full-time, senior-level positions at some pretty awesome companies. When we connect, it is imperative that I am able to share meaningful, accurate, mutually-beneficial information so that we both can make an informed decision - whether to move forward in the search process (or not).
I treat my candidates with kindness and respect. Searching for a job is time consuming. Interviewing for a senior or executive-level role can be maddening.
My goal is always to hire exceptional talent for my clients – and for everyone involved in the hiring process to have a positive experience along the way.
I have 30,000+ strong, first-degree LinkedIn connections and a personal and professional network built on a lifetime of operating with integrity, transparency, and passion. These unique attributes have earned me access to some of the world's top business leaders - and their networks.
I have no interest in volume recruiting. Unlike many executive search firms and corporate talent acquisition teams that require their recruiters to work on 7+ searches at one time - I will never work on more than three executive-level searches at once. My clients have my attention and focus for the duration of their search (es).
I am a perfectionist (a blessing and a curse) and care deeply about doing my best work and delivering high-quality results.
What is my benchmark for success? When all parties involved in the hiring process for a senior or executive-level position, including the candidate, are excited to make it happen. That's magic.
PS - that's my trusted office mate and pandemic rescue, Diesel, on the right. Many of you already know him from our video chats!
