Susan Schurman to Lead Charles Aris Inc.’s Education Recruiting Practice

GREENSBORO, NC, February 20, 2017 — Executive search firm Charles Aris Inc. has expanded its recruitment services once more, thanks in large part to Susan Schurman, a Private Equity Portfolio practice leader focused on placing senior leaders with client organizations in the Education industry.

Susan is a strategic thought leader with proven success in cultivating high-achieving dynamic teams. Prior to joining the Charles Aris team, she worked in many facets of corporate training and education – including recruitment and developing sales and leadership teams in both retail and direct sales markets globally. Having successfully built mission-critical teams for brands including May Company and Limited Brands, Susan moved into the corporate direct sales management world, working with Avon Products to create a standardized national recruiting and training program for its salesforce of more than 500,000.

“The addition of Susan Schurman to the Private Equity Portfolio practice is exciting,” said Charles Aris SVP Jim Etling, who has led the practice for nine years running now. “With more than 20 years of executive sales management experience, a major portion of that in the education space, Susan is going to provide significant value to clients needing world-class sales and business development leaders in their Education portfolios.”

Susan continued to expand her expertise in corporate training and development as the national director of sales and marketing for Motives Cosmetics, where her teams in the United States, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Canada showed unprecedented sales growth.

Susan’s passion for education continued as director of strategic partnerships for The Education Center. By collaborating with all levels of the Fortune 500 and nonprofit organizations, Susan orchestrated every phase of the company’s strategic partnerships – from development through execution of partner organizations’ education strategies.
