(Aug, 19, 2020) Executive search firm Charles Aris Inc. has promoted Ashlee Wagner from senior practice leader to vice president. Wagner is an integral part of the company’s Strategy & Corporate Development recruiting team and leads the firm’s Financial Services practice across banking, insurance, wealth management, credit card, payments and fintech clients.
“I wholeheartedly appreciate the support and guidance that the firm has given me over the past six years – and particularly now during this exciting yet unique moment in time and in my career,” said Wagner, who joined the Greensboro-based company as an associate recruiter nearly six years ago.
Fellow Charles Aris vice president Jill Jitima, who helped open the door to a recruiting career for Wagner in 2014, has been impressed with Wagner’s work ethic since day one.
“One of our firm’s 22 Principles is ‘We earn our seats every day.’ Ashlee truly leads by example on this,” Jitima said.
The Charles Aris 22 Principles serve as the compass of the company’s culture, and Wagner’s focused mindset and willingness to buy into that organizational ethos have been critical elements in her success.
Wagner not only helped lead the way within Charles Aris but within the community as well, teaming up with colleagues to help propel the firm’s Community Enrichment initiatives. Together, Wagner and Charles Aris teammates assist Piedmont Triad nonprofit organizations such as Junior Achievement and BackPack Beginnings, frequently volunteering to teach schoolchildren with the former and annually sponsoring the latter’s Kirkwood 5K event to raise funds and food for students in need.
Given the impact of the global pandemic, this year’s Kirkwood 5K has given way to a new BackPack Beginnings food-and-fund-raiser called “Bust the Bus with Us!”
“Ashlee demonstrates an array of competencies that make her a star,” said Charles Aris CEO Chad Oakley. “She works incredibly hard, she is constantly innovating and she strives for perfection in everything she does. The Charles Aris leadership team is excited to promote Ashlee Wagner to vice president.”
