LinkedIn Recommendations

  • Chief Strategy Officer

    Michelle handled senior-level searches for me at public companies in two different industries (Retail and Tech) and I recommend her highly:
    – She delivered top-performing candidates at the height of the Tech recruitment surge and despite an onslaught of recruitment by competitors pursuing same-profile talent;
    – She initiated and led weekly update calls with us and thereby became an extension of our division’s strategy team as well as our HR department;
    – She possesses a vast network in the area of strategy across a wide array of industries.

  • Talent Acquisition Business Partner

    HP Inc partnered with Michelle to fill several senior strategy positions for our Print organization. She was the utmost professional and confidante. Her candidates were right on the mark and we were able to fill the positions even amongst top competitors in the region. Michelle understood the nuances of our team, the pros and cons of every candidate and the market in general. She was a sound advisor and I would hire her again in a heartbeat. She is an excellent partner and I miss her!!

  • VP, Commercial Strategy and Inspirational Analytics

    I had the pleasure of interviewing with Michelle when she was conducting a search for a global tech client. Michelle is a professional and diligent recruiter. She struck a fair balance between capturing the interest of a job candidate while representing the interests of her client. Michelle went beyond providing information about the job position; she took time to explain the career advantages of the position at hand and understand my personal career goals, and then she spent considerable time analyzing how this next step would impact my career growth—all while never losing sight of what worked best for both her client and the candidate, near-term and long-term. I highly recommend Michelle to businesses in need of a recruiter, and if you are a ever recruited by Michelle, take her call!

  • Chief Executive Officer

    Michelle is a consummate professional, with an approach that adds value to “both sides” of the executive recruiting equation. For Clients, she carefully understands how all search requirements come together into one cohesive whole – from the technical needs of the role, to valuable experiences target candidates should bring, to cultural fit considerations within the client organization – carefully separating “must haves” from “nice to haves”. For Candidates, she clearly understands long term career/personal goals, and identifies how the targeted role contributes. Michelle “solves the equation” for Clients and Candidates – and ensures everyone wins for the long term

  • Business Transformation Advisor

    I chose Kellogg 12 years ago because they had the most demanding interview process, and Michelle played an integral part throughout, thoroughly grilling me in a phone screen prior to presenting me to her client and ensuring that Kellogg and I were a great fit. I think she got it right. I spent 3 years in strategy and the last 9 running businesses for Kellogg around the world as a managing director. Other people she hired now run major businesses for the company, and, I am sure that at least one of them will occupy the top job as CEO. The success of people once they are hired is probably the best measure of a great executive recruiter, and Michelle certainly has performed to a very exceptional standard for Kellogg.
