The secret to Charlene’s success is her consultative approach with clients and candidates, knowing and finding what it takes to make a perfect fit for the candidate and the employer. She began her career with one of Denver’s larger local CPA firms in 1996 where she played an intricate role in launching their accounting and finance executive recruiting division. Prior to Charlene jumping head first into the recruiting industry, she was a Division Controller of a software company, assisting them through an IPO. With her thorough, hands-on experience, Charlene possesses great insight on the technical skills needed in accounting and finance positions, and has a true understanding of clients’ unique employment needs.
When Charlene began her journey as an executive recruiter she did not realize how passionate she would become about helping people advance in their careers. She understands the thought processes that occur during a possible career change, and her insight and advice are in great demand.
If Charlene could pass on one piece of advice it would be: “People underestimate their capacity for change. There is never a right time to do a difficult thing. A leader’s job is to help people have vision of their potential.” (John Porter)
Outside of work, Charlene’s priority is her family. She is a devoted mom to her 12-year-old son who definitely inherited his mom’s sense of humor and ability to make friends with everyone. If you can’t find Charlene in her office, try any sunny beach with white sand and crystal blue ocean water.
