Our Team

We Believe That All Great Companies
Start With Great People.

A woman-owned and operated business that is more than just recruiters –

we are all experienced professionals who have worked in leadership positions and know what it takes to find the right top talent.

As part of our ongoing business strategy, we have intentionally limited our headcount

which allows us to be nimble, responsive, and able to quickly pivot in the face of change.

It is not every day we celebrate a company turning 15 and we have met some incredible people along the way.

Acumen has experienced some interesting changes including a global pandemic and we have grown stronger because of them. We would like to take this opportunity to recognize our team for creating one of the Largest Executive Search firms in the Pacific Northwest and an industry leader – Suzanne Hanifin, Karen Anderson, Molly Norton, Christine Gunter, Michelle Satter, and Kate Kanapeaux. Thank you to our clients for trusting us to find the missing piece in your organization and thank you to our candidates for letting us introduce you to the next step in your career journey. Finally, a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us – our family and friends. Without all of you, we would not be the trusted firm we are today. We look forward to our next milestone and the years to come.
