EdFleischman

As a Senior Managing Director within The Execu|Search Group's Healthcare division, Katie has played a key role in leading the division's success. Since joining the firm in 2007, she has worked tirelessly to develop new markets for the firm, most notably the Connecticut market, and has been instrumental in building the division into one of the largest of its kind in the Tri-State area. Katie has ascended to her leadership role quickly after showing immediate promise in business development and client relations.

She attributes her success to her experiences in the service industry working in bar and restaurant operations. "Recruiting as a business is very similar to the service industry; success depends upon making your customers happy and building long-lasting relationships. I truly care about keeping my clients and candidates excited to do business with us."

Katie is also a founding member of The Execu|Search Group's Women’s Network, an internal organization that seeks to foster support between female employees and partners with related nonprofit organizations throughout the year.

She received a Bachelor's Degree from Tulane University, where she graduated cum laude with a double major in Marketing and Latin American Studies, and lives in Greenwich, Connecticut with her husband and daughters.
