Back to Team

"Good executive search is the result of art and science. It requires a deep enough understanding of the role to be filled (the science) with the ability to identify the combination of personality traits, experience, character, and passion that will make that role a success (art). Carolyne has perfected that combination, making it a pleasure to work with her on both sides of the equation. She helps employers understand what it is they are really trying to do beyond just fill a slot or build a team, then seamlessly manages the angst, decision-making process, negotiation, and finish line with candidates. Unlike many others, Carolyne then stays involved – actively finding ways to make her candidates successful in the roles they have taken. It is a win-win for everyone involved and an old-fashioned approach to the most critical aspect of any business: people. You can’t go wrong working with her."Karen Wendel
