Angèle Bubna

Associate Consultant, Executive Search

I believe that humans are fundamentally narrative creatures; our lives turn on the axis of the stories we believe about ourselves, others, and the world around us. I bring this perspective into my work with executive search because the perfect match is found when the context and story of an organization as well as the background and narrative of a prospective candidate is taken into consideration.

Angèle brings a dynamic spirit and relational connectedness to every search. She contributes to the Executive Search team’s work through executing targeted research, networking and sourcing, and implementing creative strategies to match an organization with its best candidate. She enjoys building relationships and seeing the variety of ways that different nonprofits are promoting human dignity and flourishing.

Angèle was born and raised internationally in several countries throughout Western Africa including Côte d’Ivoire, Sénégal, Mali, and Burkina Faso. This multicultural upbringing in the Global South as well as her high contact with international NGO communities first sparked her interest in the nonprofit sector.

When she transitioned back to the US, Angèle attended Wheaton College where she studied English and Communications. While in university, Angèle had the opportunity to be involved in several aspects of the administration of Wheaton College which gave her specific context and knowledge of higher education operations. She worked with the Advancement Office as a Phonathon Caller as well as a Student Ambassador, raising money for the college, planning philanthropic events, doing donor outreach, and traveling with and speaking on behalf of the college during their capital campaigns.

She led teams of student recruiters for the Admissions Office as the Student Marketing Manager and was elected to serve on student government in roles as the Class President and, then, the Executive Vice President of College Life. During the summer of 2018, Angèle interned for Samaritan’s Purse in Niger where she served as a French/English translator, conducted research on local nonprofits and prospective partnerships, and wrote onboarding materials for incoming interns.

In her free time, Angèle volunteers teaching ESL and tutoring children and is an advocate for literacy and education. She loves traveling to new and familiar places, talking about the effects of globalization, and hosting dinner parties for friends, family, and anyone else who is willing to try her food. She is a voracious reader, aspirational writer, and a lifelong storyteller.
