Executive VP, Human Resources / Genoa Healthcare

"Chris has the best employer and talent network in the entire Pacific Northwest. Her understanding of market conditions and ability to match opportunity with talent is unparalleled. Personally she has placed me with two leading organizations to whom I might never have been exposed. Both of which were tremendous growth experiences for me as an HR practitioner. On the provider side, she has helped hire a strong HR leader within my current organization. I would highly recommend working with Chris Englin to any local HR leader."

Chief Operating Officer / NetBase Quid

"I met Chris when I served as a reference for one of her candidates and I was instantly impressed by her industry knowledge, leadership acumen, extensive network and personalized approach to matching candidates and businesses. A few months later, I had an urgent need for an HR consultant and reached out to my network for help. She was the first to respond and made herself available to talk through and understand the need. She connected me with an experienced and highly skilled consultant who was also a great cultural match for our organization. I could not recommend Chris more highly and am grateful to have such an impressive powerhouse founder in my personal network."
