About me

Gender FEMALE
Industry Human Resources
Location Stamford, Connecticut, United States
Introduction Diary of a HeadHuntress has industry buzz and advice, but it’s also an inside look at behind-the-scenes recruiting and executive search -- the humorous and the just plain weird, the empowering and the life changing. I’ve been a hands-on executive search and human resource specialist for over 20 years. I began K. Russo Associates in 1996 to specialize in human resources, public relations and marketing -- the internal and external communicators of an organization. Having served most major industries and some of the nation’s leading Fortune 500 companies, “only the best fit” has become my hallmark. My reputation for being outspoken has brought me recognition from WABC Eyewitness News, New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Fox News Online. My professional memberships read like alphabet soup – SHRM, HR New York, IACPR, ASA, PRSA, but there is no short-hand for the esteemed Pinnacle Society. While I am proud of my B.S. from Pace University, my real-life experiences have proved to be the best learning ground. Between candidates, clients, and traveling my diary is filled with stories of interesting people, challenging situations, and observations on corporate culture.
