Director, Special Projects

To me, delivering the elite experience means:
Identifying the right individuals and ensuring my internal clients receive a full market landscape, which includes a variety of candidates from direct, indirect, and “out of the box” environments. Owning the Corporate Intelligence Department and consistently delivering on creating creative sourcing strategies, talent mapping, creating org charts, etc. Ensuring our clients receive an elite experience, which starts with elite research and elite candidates.

Clients and candidates would describe me as:
Professional, trustworthy, positive and hard working.

What excites me most about the work I do is:
Generating the right names for the searches we work on and seeing those individuals get hired. Headhunting for roles that are extremely difficult and where few individuals have the required skill-set and experience. Finding a needle in a haystack and watching that name blossom into a senior candidate and eventual client.

During my down time, you are most likely to find me:
With friends and family, surrounded by textbooks, or at the movies.
