Durga has worked with clients including Tory Burch, Afterpay, Boll & Branch, Versace, Steve Madden, and Vogue. Her executive search experience spans a variety of industries with a focus on VP and C-level Marketing and GTM roles at high-growth companies. She comes with a unique perspective having been an entrepreneur herself. She successfully garnered utility patents, which she has since licensed – an experience that gives her critical insights into what’s needed to build businesses. She transitioned into talent search, leveraging these skills and experiences. She was then recruited by her client Alice + Olivia and became their Head of Talent Acquisition. She later moved to Janou Pakter, a boutique executive search firm, where she worked with a variety of B2C clients across consumer goods, fintech, and retail tech. Her experience covers both B2C and B2B clients.
Durga holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Cornell University with a concentration in Business, as well as Textiles & Apparel.
