Ginnie began her executive search and recruiting career as a Copywriter for Bernard Hodes (Recruitment) Advertising, after receiving her Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Columbia College. She later joined Spencer Stuart & Associates - an independent, international, retainer-based executive search firm, and spent the next five years as a Research Associate (first in Chicago, then transferring to their Dallas office). Subsequently, she became a Consultant with Hyde-Danforth & Co. - a boutique search & outplacement firm. Prior to her current role, Ginnie also had tenure with the Organizational Development Consulting division of Ernst & Young, having assisted Partners as well as client hiring managers, and as an internal search consultant/recruiter for the Southern Consulting Division.
Early in her career, Ginnie quickly realized that she thrives on uncovering information, and her true talents lie in finding and attracting the best possible candidates, prospects, and sources to talk with about any given client opportunity (10-100+, depending upon niche qualifications, and if factors such as competitive intelligence and succession planning are to be considered). As a personable, research-based recruiter, she has repeated proven success in effectively establishing initial contact and rapport with both “passive” and “active” candidates to build professional relationships. This is done on the behalf of clients, and requires an assessment of their experience and levels of interest, as well as the development of thorough background profiles. She is skilled at obtaining confidential resumes (as well as vital information not found on a resume or in a CV), and/or gaining referrals of more appropriate prospects.
