Founder and Managing Partner
Holly launched her executive search career in 1997, with a boutique executive search firm. She rapidly became the #1 recruiter in the firm’s then ten-year history. After four years of exceptional record-breaking production, she was asked to buy out the former partners and take over the firm. Subsequently, Holly was asked to join Korn/Ferry where she was once again a top requested recruiter, placing CEOs and CFOs in a number of Fortune 1000 companies.
In 2003, Holly decided to pursue her penchant for financial services and focus solely on investment banking, hedge fund, and private equity recruiting.
She founded Opus Advisors in July of 2006 in an effort to create a firm with an exceptional team culture, representing top-tier clients & candidate talent, with unparalleled ethics, sense of urgency, and care.
Holly has a BA from the University of Cincinnati and attended the John Marshall College of Law.
