National Executive Search Firm Expands Into New Orleans



NEW ORLEANS, LA – Tangent West, a leading national executive search firm led by founder and President Cheryl Grimaldi, proudly announces their expansion into the New Orleans market. The addition builds on several referrals and successful job placements within the region by Tangent West over the last few years. “New Orleans is a unique and rapidly growing market. By building on our recruiting expertise and tailoring that to the local needs of the New Orleans market, we know we will be able to assist thriving companies as they look to add new talent,” said Grimaldi.

Quincy Hicks Crawford, a long-time resident of the area, will be spearheading the effort. “Quincy is a natural networker and knows how to connect the dots. By supporting First Ladies Barbara Bush and Laura Bush, coupled with her communications and public relations experience, she has developed a wealth of connections that we know will be valuable to clients in New Orleans and the surrounding areas. She is a slam dunk for the recruiting world,” added Grimaldi.

“I’m thrilled to be working for Tangent West and my friend Cheryl Grimaldi,” said Crawford. “While I plan to continue my communications work, I am also excited to be taking on this new venture with one of the leaders in the recruiting industry.”

Crawford has an abundance of contract communications experience, working in that field since 2010. Prior to that she was employed in public affairs at Peter Mayer Advertising (New Orleans), Scheduling and Advance to Laura Bush in the White House (Washington, DC), Media Relations at The McGraw-Hill Companies (New York, NY) and as Aide to Barbara Bush (Houston, TX and Kennebunkport, ME).

Tangent West plans to use New Orleans as a starting hub and expand throughout the South. With headquarters in Denver since 1995, and offices in Vail, CO, Tangent West is one of the oldest most successful search firms in the country. Specialties include industry-wide placement of management, accounting and finance, “C” level executives, and high-level executive assistants and chief of staff positions.
