Alicia Montgomery

Senior Engagement Director

"Strive for perfection, settle for excellence." - Don Shula
Alicia loves a good challenge. Fueled by a natural curiosity, she’s always looking for something new to discover—whether that’s an eclectic coffee shop or the next breakthrough executive who promises to transform a client’s organization.

Alicia’s near-decade tenure with Morgan Samuels has exposed her to a broad swath of industries and functions that ultimately led her to discover her passion for med-tech and bio-tech/bio-pharma. As a Senior Engagement Director, Alicia executes and secures senior-level engagements in the firm’s Med Tech practice. Alicia has extensive experience placing clinical, regulatory, R&D, and administrative functions, partnering with clients at the cutting edge of products and technologies. The irrepressible energy and enthusiasm she brings to the Morgan Samuels team have made her not just a rising star but also a favorite to work with.

Before joining our team to find top talent, Alicia scouted top students for her alma mater, Azusa Pacific University, where she established and continued development of transfer admission programs, transfer market growth, recruitment, and student profile development as a Senior Transfer Counselor in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

A lover of true quality time with her friends, family, and fun-loving Maltese,”Bear,” Alicia lives in Los Angeles, where interesting new adventures can be found around every corner.
