Director of Recruiting

“I love helping businesses grow by providing industry expertise and advising hiring managers on how to acquire the best talent available. I love really understanding what a company needs and making it my mission to find it, and…more importantly I love delivering, with quality and integrity.”

Shannon heads the Direct-Hire recruiting team at JVT Advisors, managing the team’s day-to-day activities while also contributing to recruiting and account management.

Shannon's career in technology recruitment began in the late 90's, where she initially specialized in sourcing Java programmers and web developers for contract placement.  In 2003, she moved to direct-hire consulting where she helped IT professionals make their next long-term career move. Whether a short-term engagement or a permanent placement opportunity, Shannon loves working with startups and mid-sized companies to build their internal talent pool and ultimately grow their business.
