About Suzanne Kelly

WITH HER PROPRIETARY METHOD OF UNBIASED REFERENCING, SUZANNE KELLY IS CHANGING THE GAME IN HIGH STAKES HIRING.

It is clear from the moment you meet Suzanne that she understands people and has an intrinsic gift connecting with them. Her natural empathy and ability to immerse herself in a client’s vision has translated into countless success stories. For over 20 years, she ran her own recruitment firm based in the New York Metro area with clients such as Bridgewater Associates, GE Capital, Milward Brown, and many more.

Suzanne was instrumental in helping clients land and retain top talent, largely due to the time she invested on the front end of every hire. Her method for unbiased referencing, which eventually became her trademark, has beckoned her to shift her focus to help solve a trillion-dollar problem each year in high-stakes hiring: how can we trust a person is who they say they are?

Suzanne is leading the charge toward eradicating hiring mistakes, while creating exponential value and growth opportunities for her clients and their stakeholders. Applying tactical empathy, forensic and investigative techniques, Suzanne conducts high stakes referencing for clients who are hiring into the C-Suite or exploring an acquisition and have a vested interest in receiving an unbiased, synoptic view of target candidates before decisions are made.

She also provides training, advising, and public speaking engagements. Her clients are based in the US and abroad.

Suzanne currently resides on the Hudson River in Tarrytown, NY, and in her spare time you might find her sharpening her table tennis technique.
