Deidre O'Donohue

Head of HR & Administration Captain

“Empathy is a quality of character that can change the world.” – Barack Obama
Long-haul, multi-person road trips require careful planning—and Deidre O’Donohue is an expert at knowing where the next turn is and how to get there. As Head of HR and Administrative Captain, she masterfully juggles HR responsibilities for the company as well as leads our dynamic administrative team in their efforts to support all search execution and business development. Prior to this, she spent her first four years with the firm supporting and helping to build our Emerging Products practice.

With over a decade of experience in executive recruiting support, her ability to manage and master a range of projects is impressive. After beginning her career as a Senior HR Associate at Arthur Anderson, Deidre worked within Executive Search and Financial Services industries at A.T. Kearney, Edward W Kelley & Partners, Carlyle Group, Slayton Search, and Allstate. Most recently, Deidre was an HR Project Specialist at the University of Chicago Medicine. 

When she’s not busy pursuing her Bachelors in Organizational Development from DePaul University—or planning virtual baby showers and other celebrations for us—she can be found supporting one of the many Chicago sports teams or fueling up to leave home in Illinois for one of her famously-fun long road trips.
