Karen Harvey Consulting Group Grows Search Staff

March 26, 2024 – Karen Harvey Consulting Group (KHC), an international executive search and brand advisory firm in fashion, luxury, lifestyle and beauty, has appointed Anais Goujon to director, executive and creative search, Kate Sunderland as vice president, creative search, and Charlotte Reeve as associate director, executive search. “Since founding Karen Harvey Consulting, my goal has been to build an international group of highly dedicated and talented leaders who are more inspired working together than separately, and who appreciate the unique way that we work on an international basis,” said Karen Harvey, founder and CEO. “Our culture, coupled with our narrow and deep approach, has been the cornerstone of our success, and I have been very fortunate to work with these women over the past several years to build our presence across Europe. Their commitment to working across all key markets I believe provides a truly international perspective for our clients, which is invaluable in a world where global experience is fundamental to success.”

“These promotions signal the next stage of growth for our company, and I’m so pleased to announce the promotions of Anais, Kate, and Charlotte. Anais’ unique and multi-national background has been a powerful foundation for her coming into this firm, and her wonderful manner, combined with her exceptional skills across the creative and executive search side of the firm, have been critical to our growth in Europe,” Ms. Harvey said. “Kate’s incredible eye, deep knowledge of the market and highly strategic approach has been pivotal for our global, creative search endeavors – and Charlotte’s talent agility has been indispensable in connecting the firm to emerging talent. They are not just team members, but partners in the architecting of KHC’s next chapter, and I’m so excited to see what we build next together. Their advancement is a testament to their hard work and the bright future they will help shape for Karen Harvey Consulting.”

Ms. Goujon, based in the firm’s Paris office, has served as senior consultant since 2020, and has been working internationally across both the business and creative side of KHC’s search practice. She focuses on placing high level creatives and senior executive leaders with the firm’s global portfolio of brands. Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Goujon had been working for m-O conseil, a boutique recruitment firm working with international clients from the luxury, fashion and culture sectors.

“I am deeply honored to step into the role of director, executive and creative search at Karen Harvey Consulting,” said Ms. Goujon. “What truly sets us apart is our global footprint and perspective. We don’t just operate within regional boundaries; we embrace a worldwide vision. Under Karen’s visionary leadership, we’ve cultivated an environment of collaboration, not competition. By bringing together diverse generations and perspectives from various cultures and countries, we are not just a team – we are a global family, united in our mission to serve our clients with unparalleled insight and expertise.”
