“As a fourth-generation female entrepreneur, being in search and consulting for 28 years has offered me the opportunity to be inspired and challenged by many amazing clients, candidates and colleagues. This also presented an environment of continuous learning. I was listening to clients and the tide was changing in the
recruitment industry. Search is not always the only answer. It was time to change the game.”


Karen Russo, CEO and Chief Talent Officer

About Us


Our story began in 1996 when Karen Russo, a fourth-generation 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. She wanted to create a recruiting solution where candidates weren’t seen as resumes. Believing it’s important to walk in their shoes, the recruitment team listens to understand the candidate’s interests, values and career goals.


Karen later launched a Mexico-based boutique RPO company, IIPE International Executive Research, that identifies, sources and attracts talent for clients worldwide. With a growing portfolio of clients, IIPE is the engine that supplies talent across industries.


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, ranked number 9 largest search firms in North America ( by hunt Scanlon).
