Bell Oaks Executive Search Introduces Associate Partner Claire Dempsey

New Associate Partner joins the Bell Oaksleadership team to support both non-profit and corporate clients.

Bell Oaks Executive Search welcomes Associate Partner Claire Dempsey, in keeping with their continued growth strategy to benefit clients and candidates locally, nationally, and globally. Known for their robust team utilizing a comprehensive search process and real-time technology, the Atlanta-based firm has over 50 years of experience in identifying, attracting, and hiring top-level professional leadership talent. Claire’s crossover of the non-profit and corporate realms weaves together both objectives and values to support Bell Oaks’ variety of clients.

Claire comes to Bell Oaks from her previous role at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), an organization the firm has been actively involved with for many years, where she directed Atlanta’s Man & Woman of the Year and Students of the Year programs and strategized revenue-driving campaigns yielding millions of dollars for research. Her skillset of sourcing the perfect candidates who would succeed in those programs, matching those candidates with corporate sponsorships across multiple industries, recruiting volunteers, and fundraising allowed her to build a vast network of connections and provided a natural transition to executive search.

“I appreciate that Bell Oaks is a boutique firm with a diverse culture of people who have so many different backgrounds, where learning from each other feels very authentic and collaborative,” says Claire. “This boutique mindset means we focus on making excellent placements through quality searches above quantity. The right placement can be life-changing for both candidate and company.” 

Todd Warshaw, a Partner at Bell Oaks, says, “Claire is well-respected in her field, exceptionally bright, and outgoing, and we are so excited to welcome her as the logical progression in her career journey. She brings with her a world of knowledge from working with executives who serve the community, making her a perfect fit for our growing Bell Oaks team and our clients.”
