Prior to the inception of HCP, Nancy served as a Partner for five years with another retained executive search firm in Atlanta. In 1995, she was recruited to develop the retained search practice for a global contract energy firm where she served as the Practice Leader for their start-up Professional Services Group. Nancy was acknowledged as a major contributor to that firm’s growth, as listed in Inc 500 Magazine as one of the fastest growing mid-cap companies in the U.S.


During her search career, Nancy has developed particular expertise in three functional areas: human resources (generalists/specialists in executive compensation and benefits in corporate and consulting positions); finance/accounting; and professional services sales/marketing. She has conducted senior and middle management level searches in a variety of industries, including financial services, professional services consulting, manufacturing, public accounting, energy, and telecommunications.


Concurrent with her role as a search consultant, Nancy has also assisted clients in developing programs to improve the efficiency and success of internal recruiting methods and hiring practices. Prior to entering the search industry, she functioned in marketing and practice development roles for the Southeast Region of Coopers & Lybrand (now known as PricewaterhouseCoopers), and in human resources with Norrell Corporation (acquired by Spherion).


A graduate of Heidelberg University in Ohio, Nancy obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Sciences, with a minor in Psychology. Since then, she has completed postgraduate studies at Georgia State University.
