Cathy Bagley – Director of Recruiting

Cathy Bagley

Director, Recruiting

Cathy brings over 15 years’ experience recruiting top talent for clients that range from start-ups, to Fortune 500 companies. Prior to joining Hawthorne Search, she ran her own recruiting firm for four years. Initially, her recruiting career began on the I.T. side; however, she is now focused on Sales, Sales Management, Digital Advertising Sales and Executive Level searches.

Her experience allows her to source the highest caliber recruits to meet her client’s needs. Cathy’s success comes from her ability to understand her client’s needs and specifications– fulfilling their requirements quickly and efficiently. Listening to her client’s, asking the right questions, then searching for and presenting top-notch candidate’s, makes a winning combination. She prides herself in being detail oriented, reliable and a self- starter who gets the job done!

Cathy’s sourcing methodology is to thoroughly qualify a candidates experience, personality and goals to ensure they are the best fit for her client’s needs. Cathy also provides the extra touch of being a liaison between the candidate and client where–following the candidate through the entire interview and hiring process, taking care of every detail.

When not working, Cathy stays busy with her 3 children, Thomas, Tyler and Madison, along with her husband, Rob. In her leisure time she enjoys boating, tennis, and skiing. She earned her B.S. degree in English and Management at Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C. (3 time National Football Champions)! She was raised in Gainesville, Florida and is an avid Gator fan.
