About C-Suite Assistants

How C-Suite Assistants Was Born

After a successful career as a banker both in the USA and overseas, Carol Coleman followed her entrepreneurial instincts and made a career pivot into the executive search business where she could combine her knowledge of financial markets and her interest in connecting people. In 1999, Carol founded C-Suite’s parent company, Coleman & Company, an executive search company focused on financial services.

In 2003, Suzanne Coleman (no relation) and Carol bumped into each other at a local pizza parlor on a Friday night when their “Coleman” pizza orders got mixed up. Suzanne was also working in the recruitment industry and was ready to strike out on her own. So, as good recruiters do, they started a conversation, the pizza got cold and Suzanne joined Coleman & Company Executive Search as a partner in 2003.

As their business grew, financial service clients including hedge funds and PE firms, repeatedly asked for help finding Executive and Personal Assistants. Recognizing this critical need, Carol and Suzanne formed C-Suite Assistants to specialize in the recruitment of assistants for senior executives. Fast forward, Suzanne retired in 2022, and today C-Suite Assistants continues to be led by Carol and an executive team including Linda Banta, Gerry Sheridan and Tor Holtan.
