She serves as the Leader of Allen Austin’s Higher Education, Professional and Emerging Leaders practices. She is also a member of our nonprofit, government, financial services, and technology practices. Brittna works with companies across a broad range of industries to help facilitate the professional and executive search process.
“We’re excited about Brittna for many reasons, including her experience in building great teams, opening and leading offices and scaling networks,” says Rob Andrews, Chairman and CEO of Allen Austin. “Beyond her technical abilities, she is perfectly aligned with our purpose, mission, vision, and values. Given our commitment to build a culture of peak performance, deliver an exceptional employee experience and exceed our clients’ expectations, it is critical that our leadership embrace our relationships vs. transactions philosophy. Brittna, and members of our team, engaged in deep conversations around culture, purpose, vision and values over a period of three months before making the mutual decision to join forces. At this point, it is difficult to imagine a better fit and we are looking forward to executing our five-year plan.”
Brittna was drawn to Allen Austin because of its purpose and commitment to the highest levels of relationship management and client experience. Brittna’s understanding of the firm’s Foresight™ process, facilitating matches that work and last, make her an integral part of expanding the firm’s global footprint, while building on the firm’s values and culture of peak performance.
Prior to joining Allen Austin, Brittna spent 32 years serving in a variety of roles with Kelly, a large global workforce solutions organization. Her passion is client and talent engagement along with fostering a culture where teams can perform at optimal levels. This high level of engagement allowed her to build solid partnerships with key clients and top talent in the markets she supported.
Starting out as a recruiter gave Brittna the opportunity to learn the importance of active listening to better understand the needs of the client and talent. This absolutely positions her to make the best connections and fit. From there, she was hooked and the rest, as they say, was history. She was able to play to her strengths by serving in leadership roles like Partnered Staffing Manager, Area Manager, Regional Operations Manager and two Vice President roles. Some of her vertical focus areas included administrative, engineering, IT, F & A, education, healthcare, and legal roles. She has watched this industry evolve and brings a wealth of knowledge to her new role.
