As a Partner at SPMB, Natalie leads the firm’s Southern California team and places key executive leaders across North America with disruptive growth-stage technology companies, as well as tech giants seeking innovation at scale.
Natalie’s clients enjoy partnering with her because of her fire in the belly, thoroughness, and relationship approach to search. Natalie is passionate about solving challenging business problems through talent acquisition and building long-term trusted relationships with her clients and candidates. She typically works with clients by leading multiple C-level and VP strategic projects over time. This has allowed her to intimately understand the inner workings, unique cultural dynamics, and business problems her clients face.
“Natalie is a shining example of the culture we’ve all worked so hard to build over the years – one of collaboration, self-improvement, support for teammates, grit, resilience, smarts, diversity of thought and an obsession with client success.”
— Mike Doonan, SPMB Managing Partner
