Q: Tell us how your career began and how you ended up where you are now. 

A: “I spent my early career in the legal field and gained a broad array of professional experience through providing exceptional client service and managing projects, human resources, technology, visual exhibits, risk, facilities and business operations.”

After spending several years as a legal administrator, Charlotte realized she most enjoyed the recruitment aspects of human resources.

“Luckily, fate was on my side, and a neighbor who was involved in the retained search industry recruited me.  My initial work in the search industry involved research, developing organizational charts, and project management for clients in the technology, financial services, manufacturing and private wealth arenas. Since joining Tyler & Company in 2009, my efforts have been focused on managing retained executive search projects for hospitals and health care systems.”

We must creatively consider a variety of backgrounds to piece together the new desired skill set.
