Executive Search Consultant
Heather works to align world-class organizations with superior accounting and finance talent as an Executive Search Consultant. With over 12 years of experience working with, and building teams, within the financial industry, she understands the importance of finding candidates who deliver unique value to an organization. As a former candidate, she equally understands the importance of working alongside someone who doesn’t try and “sell you a job” but someone who serves as a trusted consultant and advisor who can help bring you to the next stage in your career.
Heather's professional background began in real estate finance. After 12 years, she had the opportunity to learn something new and was offered a role working as a Recruiter within the IT space. It was an industry move that was both professionally, and personally, very rewarding as she gained incredible knowledge and helped people achieve their career goals. After three years in IT she felt it was time for a change and transitioned to the Executive Search team within Accounting and Finance at FGP.
What do you love about your job?
My job is a rewarding one: I help organizations find great people to build great companies! It doesn’t get much better than that!
If you could have any other fantasy career what would it be and why?
I would love to have my own travel television show! Travel, eat, and drink around the world while discovering new places off the beaten path. For instance, how amazing would it be to discover the very best creperie in Paris? Or, journey through Hong Kong to find out where the best Har Gow can be ordered? I would like to be the anti-tourist.
What do you love to do outside of work?
Being outside in beautiful weather with my family is tops. Whether it is telling ghost stories and roasting marshmallows with the kids around the campfire, hiking in the mountains, kayaking on Lake Jocassee, or simply lounging on a hammock reading a book and sipping a glass of wine, I’m a happy girl!
Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
Easy: Katharine Hepburn. She was fierce and defied expectation!
What is your life motto?
Embrace change with an open mind and heart.
