September 15, 2020 – N2Growth, a Philadelphia-based management consulting and executive search firm, has named Kelli Vukelic as its new chief operating officer.
“Kelli is a great addition to our team and will help us tremendously moving forward,” said Mike Myatt, founder and chairman of N2Growth. “She’s not only a proven industry player, but she’s a great human being and a really good fit for our team. N2Growth has continued to grow throughout 2020, and Kelli’s arrival will only accelerate that progress as we continue to set the standard for what search should be.”
Ms. Vukelic has more than two decades of experience in executive search and talent management. She joins N2Growth after 20 years at Korn Ferry where she held several roles of increasing responsibility to ultimately become a senior leader within the global technology practice. She brings a combination of operational improvement experience and global go-to-market expertise to her new role.
“Ms. Vukelic will be responsible for operational performance at the firm, harnessing the firm’s talent to address clients’ most critical talent issues, and driving the innovations required to establish the future of search,” N2Growth said.
“What I found most compelling about N2Growth is its elite status in the executive search market,” said Ms. Vukelic. “N2Growth is disrupting the market through a complete innovation of traditional practices coupled with an unparalleled commitment to client excellence. Furthermore, the experience of N2Growth’s professionals is demonstrated proof that the firm is poised for exponential growth. I’m looking forward to contributing to the company’s next levels of success.”
Global Leadership Consultancy
N2Growth is a global leadership consultancy with practice areas in executive search, culture shaping, leadership development, strategy, organizational design, risk, digital transformation and executive coaching. The firm has more than 40 locations across the Americas, Europe, MENA and APAC.
N2Growth Adjusts Search Fees to Help Clients During Pandemic Crisis
In March, N2Growth announced it was deferring 50 percent of all search fees for new engagements until after the COVID-19 pandemic has been contained.
“This is a rather unprecedented time, and it’s during times like this that we need to come together and find opportunities to serve each other,” said Mike Myatt, founder and chairman of N2Growth. “The spread of COVID-19 is causing suffering for thousands of families around the world; it is disrupting daily life, closing schools, and impacting markets. We feel an obligation to lead by example and do our part to help the marketplace get to the other side of this.”
Earlier this year, N2Growth added Joe Nicolas as principal and senior advisor specializing in fostering relationships with new and existing clients in order to help them identify opportunities in executive search, leadership development, and business transformation. Prior to joining the N2Growth team, Mr. Nicolas was the owner and CEO of Magellan Search & Staffing, a Philadelphia-based recruiting firm.
“We are absolutely ecstatic to add someone of Joe’s caliber to the N2Growth team,” said Dan Myatt, CEO at N2Growth. “He brings more than 20 years of search experience across industries and is going to be an incredible partner for our clients. Moreover, he’s a proven entrepreneur who built his own award-winning firm from the ground up. The combination of Joe’s professionalism, character, and competence leave us feeling lucky to have him, and I’m confident that our clients will feel the same way.”
