As Co-Founder and Partner, Barbara brings a natural propensity for research, skillful listening, and a results-driven mindset to the both the search and career development process.
Prior to executive search, Barbara worked on Wall Street and in Technology Product Development. In addition to working in traditional consumer and institutional financial service management roles, she had the opportunity to work on several pioneering technology ventures with early movers in online brokerage, banking and travel.
With a strong belief that “context matters,” Barbara’s approach to her work today aligns with the way she has tackled projects throughout her career, considering both the “big picture” as well as the “fuzzy details” before conceptualizing and implementing a strategy. Her clients and candidates alike recognize that she “gets it.” She trusts that this is the underlying ingredient to her success.
Barbara has had a longstanding interest in leadership training, coaching and personal development, not surprising given that she holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Rochester. A passionate public education advocate, she formerly served as an elected member on her community’s school board. Presently, she is Co-Chair of The University of Rochester NY Metro Women’s Group, whose mission is “Women Supporting Women”.
