Josie McAdam

How would you describe yourself?

Personable, intelligent, and committed. I thrive in collaborative environments, where everyone is working together as a team to achieve the same goal. I’m easy to talk to and enjoy meeting new people.

What are your passions / hobbies?

I have a great passion for literature, specifically Victorian literature. I also am a photographer, focusing in both nature shots and more artistic shots, as well as production shots for theatre productions.

What gives you meaning at work?

Working with people who have a clear passion for what they do, and are getting enjoyment from it.

What would you like to explore and learn?

I’ve always been a curious person who finds interest in a wide range of subjects. The move from arts administration to insurance / recruiting brought something new to learn, and I have enjoyed diving into it. Because of my curious brain, I tend to have a dense amount of trivia knowledge on a huge range of random subjects!

Josie began her career in non-profit, working in Arts Administration for eight years before making the switch to executive search. Before Eliot Partnership, she worked at Marsh McLennan as the Talent Acquisition Administrative Coordinator for the North America Leadership team.

She has a Bachelor’s degree from Manhattanville college in Theatre, with a double minor in English and Psychology.
