Heidi was delighted to transition her extensive brand management experience to a role where she can work with candidates and companies to find that perfect fit. Having spent over a decade in traditional CPG marketing working on brands like Mrs. Dash, Dos Equis beer, Wesson Oil, and Swiss Miss Cocoa, she understands the importance of building careers and building teams.
Partnering with the O’Connell Group stretches back 15 years for Heidi, when they placed her at her first post-MBA job. “When I thought about transitioning my marketing skills to a role as an Executive Recruiter, there was no other firm I would consider. The philosophy of the O’Connell Group to build relationships and help guide marketers through their career, as well as working with hiring managers to build superior teams, is simply the ‘right way to do business’. A recruiter should be a trusted advisor and O’Connell Group was always that for me. I’m thrilled to be in a position to help companies and candidates achieve their career goals.”
Heidi earned her MBA from the Olin School of Business at Washington University and her undergraduate degree in mathematics from DePauw University.
