President, Hogarth California
Colleen has been my HR partner for several years now, and makes things happen. At Hogarth she was integral to our rapid fire staffing needs, as well as a key part of the management team when dealing with acquisition related restructurings. I was so impressed with her that I hired her as our contract HR Director at KiDS and Box for the same reasons. She knows the creative and ad production industry well at the C suite level. She has great contacts in the industry, and helped me fill several positions with great candidates in a short period. And she knows people, which means having a pulse on employee sentiment. She is a great team member, especially in the ad industry that ebbs and flows quickly based on client demands.
CFO / COO at KiDS Creative, LLC
Colleen worked with my team on a marketing white paper in late 2015. She showed a tremendous amount of agency and a rigorous attention to detail. Her strong communication skills allowed us to collaborate in a way I never thought possible with someone outside the organization. Colleen was also able to complete her own research and leverage her professional network to get the job done - with very little drag on our company's resources. Exactly what you look for in a consultant! We look forward to working with Colleen again in the very near future.
CEO and Co-Founder at Fama
Colleen is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is knowledgeable in all aspects HR and able to work with companies of any size - startups to older companies - and have a positive impact. She's great at analyzing business needs and making recommendations to set companies up for success "right now" and outlines what will be needed down the line. She's truly a strategic partner and really cares about her client's success. In addition to her HR skill set, she is (from a team perspective) great to collaborate with and learn from! She creates great relationships across the business. I would recommend Colleen to any organization hands down.
HR Manager at Hometeam
Colleen has been a real pleasure to work with - not only does she really know her stuff, but she works hard to understand the unique challenges facing our company and tailors her solutions to find the best outcomes for us. On top of that, she has been willing to help with even the most minor questions (of which I have had many). I would recommend her to anyone who needs HR support and advice - she's been a true thought partner for me and I hope to continue working with her in the future!
