Colleen Rogers

Vice President, Executive Search LinkedIn

“Finding the right person for an organization takes a significant amount of time and energy. I relieve pressure on my clients’ leadership and human resource staff—and help them reach a much larger pool of experienced, qualified individuals to ensure that they have the best candidates for consideration.”

About Colleen Rogers

Colleen Rogers understands that when a client engages Campbell & Company’s Executive Search team, that organization is entrusting the team with its future. She takes a candid approach to understanding client cultures and the positions at hand by listening to staff members and decision-makers, asking key questions, and getting to know everyone involved in the search process. Colleen helps clients take advantage of Campbell & Company’s networks and resources to reach the right candidate pools, ultimately placing candidates that clients might never have had access to.

Colleen is proud to be part of Campbell & Company’s Executive Search team, ranked one of the nation’s Top 10 search firms for women of color by Women of Color in Fundraising and Philanthropy (WOC)® two years in a row and one of the country’s best executive search firms for four years by Forbes Magazine.

  • Meet talented professionals and learn about their work
  • Work with clients to choose the best person for their organization
  • Help to increase and maintain a candidate’s interest in a position
  • Meet new clients and learn about the work they do (their enthusiasm can be contagious)
