October 2, 2015 – Executive recruiting firm Chaloner has expanded its New York office with the additions of Alanna Miller and Georgia Aarons as associates.
Established in 1979, Chaloner is an executive search firm focused on recruiting top talent for mid and senior level communications, public relations and marketing positions throughout the U.S. and Canada. The firm works with clients across all industry and non-profit sectors.
Ms. Miller joins Chaloner from the New York office of recruiting firm Russell Tobin & Associates, where she built its marketing and communications practice with a focus on professional and financial services clients. She began her career in marketing with a global academic publisher, later joining a large integrated media company focused on the legal and real estate sectors. She is the author of Stuff Every Woman Should Know, a pocket-sized reference book for women. Ms. Miller is passionate about helping women develop effective job search strategies and develop careers for long-term growth and success.
“Alanna will utilize her extensive marketing background and a deep commitment to creating a seamless experience for her clients and candidates,” said Amy Segelin, president of Chaloner. “Companies turn to Chaloner because of our focus and knowledge of the marketplace for communications talent. Alanna will continue to expand our capabilities in this sector.”
Ms. Aarons has nearly a decade of executive search experience and five years of experience working in communications and public relations in London and New York. In her new role, she will combine both aspects of her background and lead searches across the communications spectrum at all levels on a national basis.
She brings a unique set of communications and recruiting experiences to Chaloner. Most recently, Ms. Aarons served as a senior research associate for Paul Argenti, professor of corporate communications at Tuck Business School at Dartmouth. Previously, she spent several years as a vice president with the Capstone Partnership, conducting strategy, business development and corporate finance searches for investment banks and Fortune 500 companies. Additionally, Ms. Aarons brings international communications experience to Chaloner having spent time working in London with a global PR agency.
“Georgia’s intellect and passion for communications are fantastic assets in this business,” added Ms. Segelin. “She will provide an unmatched depth of insight in identifying and recruiting high caliber candidates for our clients.”
Chaloner, which has an additional office in Boston, is currently heading searches for a new associate director of The Rockefeller Foundation, a vice president of healthcare for a strategic communications firm, as well as a New York communications practice lead for a national public affairs firm.
