The opportunity to impact people’s lives and help build sustainable success for organizations is the reason Carol has spent nearly 20 years in the executive search industry. Since joining TEG in 1998, she has followed her passion of partnering with Fortune 500 and fast paced, high growth communications technology clients. Leveraging her worldly insights and learning agility, Carol is quick to recruit top players for clients’ senior and mid-level roles in general management, operations, sales, and marketing.

Carol shares several interests in common with her clients: the insatiable desire to do new things, seek out trends, and find candidates with the perfect “fit.” She thrives on emerging and innovative technologies and has a passion for helping new ventures recruit the talent they need to lead them into the future. Carol’s ability to listen allows her to get up to speed on new industries fast and understand clients’ organizations as an insider. Clients Alcatel Lucent, Harris PSPC, Cellebrite, and Capgemini all value Carol as an effective search consultant and trusted advisor.

Her firsthand industry expertise grew from 12 years spent in regional sales management roles with telecommunications leaders Cable & Wireless and Qwest Communications prior to TEG.

Outside work, Carol’s love for adventure has led her to roam the world extensively, even remote destinations like New Zealand, from which she brought home her now husband of 27 years as a souvenir (way better than a T-shirt). An art collector, you will spot originals on the walls of their home in DC, or one of Carol’s own painted creations. She is also known to collect medals for full and half marathons and, most impressive, is consistently awarded a 10,000 steps badge on Fitbit.
