Principal Interim Management and Director of Research

Carmen Jeffery leads Phelps’ Interim Leadership practice and the Research Team.  

Carmen brings 22 years of recruitment experience to Phelps. She has led recruitment teams in both retained and contingent models and has had success placing executives across the broader public sector and into private organizations of all sizes and stages of growth spanning into emerging technology, telecommunications, retail, manufacturing, mining, banking and consumer packaged goods.

“I love meeting people and listening to career stories, the way candidates grow professionally has as much to do with good fortune and timing as what actually drives them to move forward and grow. Good people attract good experiences. I’m a research enthusiast when it comes to finding top talent, I get an adrenaline rush when I’m able to source and connect with a person who is the perfect match for our clients.

Having spent several years delivering interim executives and other creative talent solutions as a freelance recruiter and under the banner of leading executive search firms, Carmen has developed a passion for Interim Management. Inspired by the incredible difference interim leaders make on the organizations and teams they join, Carmen is committed to ensuring that Phelps plays a pivotal part in working with this remarkable talent while playing a part in driving the growth of a very unique and talented work force. The time for the Gig Executive has come to a point of critical mass in meeting the demands of today’s ever-changing work forces.

Carmen earned her BA in Human Relations and Social Organization from the University of Western Ontario and an Associate Degree in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.
