Carol is often retained to help clients in other industries recruit senior financial officers and board members.

In 2009, Carol joined Caldwell Partners from a boutique firm she founded 15 years prior. Before becoming an executive search consultant, she held positions with Oppenheimer's ALM Group, Kidder Peabody, Dean Witter Capital Markets and Sutro & Co. Her work at these firms provided her with a strong management background and a deep understanding of institutional fixed income and equities, corporate finance, plus investment products. This has proven valuable when consulting with clients about competitive intelligence, market trends and dynamics, positions in their companies, and search strategy.

Carol's clients have great confidence in her in-depth assessment of candidates, and her ability to align client and candidate values with cultural fit. The long-term client relationships she maintains are a testament to her reputation and dedication to quality.
