My name is Cindy Joyce, and I am the Founder and CEO of Pillar, a woman-owned executive search and HR consulting firm. My reputation was built on finding the very best candidates, building lasting client relationships, and promoting a strong organizational culture. In my twenty years in recruiting and human resources, I have worked with outstanding nonprofit and for-profit organizations.
Three years ago, I was lacking passion in my career. I was home one weekend, came across the movie Jerry Maguire, and was struck by his famous line: “The key to this business is personal relationships. Suddenly, it was all pretty clear. The answer was fewer clients. Less money. More attention. Caring for them, caring for ourselves.”
I had my Jerry Maguire moment, and with that, Pillar began.
Since that time, I have worked on searches for exceptional nonprofit and mission-driven clients for searches including President/CEO of the New England ACH Association, Revenue Accounting Manager for Reading Partners, Director of Advancement for The Landing School of Boat Building, Director of Sales for Uncommon Cacao, Director of National Accounts for Year Up, and President of Yestermorrow Design/Build School. Prior searches included Executive Director for City Year, President of the Emeril Lagasse Foundation, Director of Environmental Policy for Harvard Law School, Director of Development for Nantucket Athenaeum, and Director of Advancement for Santa Barbara Film Festival.
I have appeared on BBC‘s World Have Your Say, been a featured speaker/presenter with the Lean In, Harvard, PwC, Junior League of Boston, and Materials Research Society (MRS), and my writing has been featured on LinkedIn Pulse and in several blogs. My personal volunteer experience has including fundraising, actively serving on a nonprofit board, leading a human resources membership group, serving as a LinkedIn Hiring Advisor, and promoting economic empowerment, promoting the arts, and mentoring students.
For my full background, I invite you to view my LinkedIn profile, and encourage you to contact me about your hiring and human resources needs.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
