Karen Russo, CEO and Chief Talent Officer
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Karen Russo for over two decades. She is smart, pragmatic, customer focused and takes the time to dive deeply into any assignment she is given. She is a shrewd judge of character and has completed every single search I have worked with her on. Karen works quickly, provides updates and demonstrates curiosity, interest and understanding of the industry, organization, culture and fit of the companies that hire her.
I've fielded many calls from recruiters over the years but Karen was instantly different. Career change is a major life event, and I felt she took that seriously. After detailed conversations, it was apparent she knew her client’s goals and culture and discussed why she thought I was a fit. She was by my side, during multiple interviews and final negotiations. I wasn't actively looking, but she found me, made a great connection, and changed my life for the better. If she calls you, do yourself a favor, and listen. Thanks, Karen!
I would work with Karen Russo in a heartbeat again. I had never met a recruiter who so thoroughly understood the type of person it takes to work in a nonprofit organization and it takes a special kind of person. I’ve worked in the sector my whole career and there is a unique worldview that the right candidates possess and Karen has the ability to zero in on skills and character with precision and great acumen.
Karen Russo can be counted on to find me the just the right candidate. She has a true sense of my HR needs and has provided me with some truly insightful advice and counsel.
I have worked with Karen Russo for many years. All candidates presented to me... are rigorously screened and squarely on the mark. Karen’s added value lies in her ability to close the deal... thanks to Karen’s ability to brand our company and sell the benefits of our firm.
K. Russo Consulting does a superb job of understanding our space, educating themselves on our company, and ultimately delivering candidates that can fill the position technically and fit well with the company’s dynamics.
Having been in the recruiting function for 10+ years, I have dealt with numerous recruiting and search firms. I've found K. Russo Consulting the best as it relates to understanding the company's culture, the demanding need of filling positions in a short time frame, and presenting qualified candidates and not resumes.
I regard Karen as a consultant – someone who will go over and above to provide clients with strategic ideas that ultimately provide more efficiency.
