Lisa Maxwell, founder and managing partner of international executive search firm Gerard Stewart, works daily at the top of the staffing ecosystem, collaborating with boards and CEOs on leadership matters that affect individual companies and the industry. And with the increase in private equity investment in staffing, having the right leaders at the top has become more vital than ever. In the past year, Maxwell’s team has completed several high-profile C-level searches. She has also been a guest speaker at talent conferences and aims to continue providing critical insights on human capital leadership.
