Charlotte Smith Joins The Talent Business NY as Managing Partner and NA CMO

Charlotte Smith, who has spent the last three years handling senior hires in both the agency and ‘creative tech’ space has joined The Talent Business’ New York office as Managing Partner.  Smith will work across The Talent Business’ client portfolio of agencies and brand owners, with a focus on leadership and senior creative talent.  She will also be The Talent Business’ NA Chief Marketing Officer, working closely with The Talent Business’ Global Chairman & CEO, Gary Stolkin, and LA based US Chairman, Lee Ann Daly.  Smith takes The Talent Business’ headcount in the US to fifteen.

The Talent Business is the world leader in executive search for creative businesses, with offices in London, Berlin, New York, Los Angeles, Singapore, Shanghai, Dubai and Sao Paulo. It is the only global executive search firm specialising in marketing and communications. Over 450 business leaders and senior talent were hired through The Talent Business globally in the past twelve months.

Gary Stolkin says, “Charlotte is totally aligned with our philosophy that commercial success comes from putting creativity at the heart of a business and not treating it as a silo or as an afterthought.  She’s well equipped to help our clients identify and secure individuals who can deliver this kind of transformational, creative leadership for their business.”

Smith comments, “The progressive companies that I have partnered across the US over the last three years has fuelled my fascination with the eclectic mix of talent that defines creative businesses, and is what drove my career segue into executive search. My focus will continue to be delivering transformational creative leaders and senior talent to a broad range of creative businesses across North America.”
