About Us

K. Russo Consulting ‐ a member of the Sanford Rose Associates® network of offices, is an independently owned and operated office of Sanford Rose Associates International, Inc., an organization with a 50+ year history of offering executive search services.


Our story began twenty years ago when Karen Russo, a fourth-generation female entrepreneur, launched K. Russo Consulting Inc.  Karen believes passionately in challenging the norm, taking smart risks and really understanding what drives people and teams and modeled K. Russo Consulting in that vision. The business closed the first year with close to $1million in revenue and today embodies an established and experienced team with a strong infrastructure.


Our story doesn’t stop there.  Knowing that a critical part of the process in search is identifying the talent pool, Karen launched Mexico-based IIPE International Executive Research, a global name generation and customized research service.  Recognizing the value and innovation that IIPE provides, search firms and corporate recruiting teams began to hire us to do their research and name generation.   With a growing portfolio of clients, IIPE is the engine that supplies talent across industries.


But what makes us most unique is our approach with our clients.


We embrace a new way of doing things and because of our size and experience can put your needs and bottom line first.  Assessing our clients’ culture and competencies, we offer uniquely tailored solutions that are efficient and cost effective to achieve the end result of finding you “only the best fit”.  This is critical to success and ensuring promotability of placements.


Our proprietary process of rapidly identifying top talent accelerates the time to fill on all searches.  Our operations and administrative processes consistently receive accolades from clients for over 18 years.
