ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Before joining Hire Profile in 2015, Leslie Curl spent more than 20 years in a variety of marketing leadership positions at technology, telecommunications, hospitality and retail companies.
That experience primed her for a position as Vice President, Executive Search, where she placed executives and top-level managers. Now, Curl is stepping into a newly created role as the company’s Vice President, Client Success.
The position is aimed at helping companies identify, hire and retain top talent. It also allows Curl to tap into her passion of building teams and solving problems.
“As a hiring manager, I worked with staffing firms and learned what works and what doesn’t,” Curl said. “At Hire Profile, we pride ourselves on our being both client and candidate centric. We are very hands-on, and we spend time up front getting to know our clients and their culture. It’s not about bringing a company the most candidates; it’s about bringing companies the right candidate.”
“I am looking forward to focusing all my efforts to help our clients be more successful, more profitable and find the right team members for their organization,” Curl said. “We want happier employees and happier employers right from the start.”
Before joining Hire Profile, Curl held positions as Director of NCR’s Entertainment Division, Vice President of Marketing at Cinnabon (FOCUS Brands) and Director of Creative Services and Marketing Communications at Cingular Wireless/AT&T Mobility.
“We have all the technology tools, but we’re retro in some ways, too. There is nothing that beats a conversation and listening to what our clients are looking for,” said Nancy Gamble, President & CEO of Hire Profile. “With her background, Leslie can connect with our clients and understand their needs in a way other recruiting firms cannot.”
“Clients usually come to us with a need. Sometimes it’s an urgent need; other times it’s a growth need,” Gamble added. “They come to us when it matters, and in her new role, Leslie will ensure our partnerships remain fruitful for years to come.”
Curl, a graduate of the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia, with a degree in Merchandising and a concentration in Marketing, holds a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and volunteers with UGA, Habitat for Humanity and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. She and her husband live in Sandy Springs with their two shelties.
