The C-Suite Team
As one of the founding partners of C-Suite Assistants, Carol’s diverse international life and business experiences allow her to offer top tier recruiting services to her clients.
Born and raised in South America, Carol attended university in the USA and earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology at Tulane University and a graduate degree in International Management from Thunderbird (The American Graduate School of International Management). Upon graduation, she joined the Human Resources department of an international bank and then moved over to the investment side as a Banking Analyst focused on Latin American lending transactions.
Carol later joined Citibank where she worked in the Capital Markets Group and managed a sales team in New York and then in London. For family reasons Carol took a break from the banking world and moved with her growing family to Taiwan where she became the Executive Director of a Non-Profit involved with services for the children of international families. After five years living abroad, Carol returned to the U.S. with her husband and their three sons and decided to pursue her long held interest in recruiting. She joined a staffing firm with offices in New York and Connecticut and learned the recruiting business from the ground up.
In 1999, eager to start her own business to put into practice core principals and her experience, Carol opened her own firm, Coleman & Company, with a focus on financial roles for clients such as GE, Mastercard, Pimco, HSBC and various hedge funds. In 2003, recognizing the needs of clients for administrative support staff, and with the addition of Suzanne Coleman as a full partner and two other recruiters, C-Suite Assistants, a separate division for recruitment of administrative and support staff was born. C-Suite has steadily expanded to include staffing for administrative and operational roles across industries and in many different locations in the USA.
When not working, Carol can be found playing a paddle sport of some kind or digging in the dirt on a local cooperative farm or in her own garden. Contact Carol at [email protected] or call her at 646-214-7475.
Suzanne Coleman is one of the founding partners of C-Suite Assistants, headquartered in New York, NY.
Earlier in her career, Suzanne worked at a top global advertising agency as the on-site account manager for a major Wall Street investment banking firm. She left the corporate world to raise four children and then following her entrepreneurial spirit, and passion for cooking and client service, went on to form a successful catering/event planning business in Westchester serving corporate and private clients for over a decade. In 1999, Suzanne made the transition to recruiting, where she worked as a recruiter at a Westchester/Stamford based staffing firm, specializing in the recruitment of administrative and operational support for hedge funds, private equity firms, banks, management consulting firms and Fortune 500 companies based in the NY metro area. After a successful five years at this staffing firm, Suzanne joined Carol to create C-Suite Assistants, a staffing firm founded on strong values and ethics following a disciplined recruiting process and commitment to excellence.
Suzanne is a graduate of The University of New Hampshire with a degree in Business Administration. She has surpassed the Brady Bunch with a blended family of 8 children and in her spare time enjoys tennis, golf, skiing, cycling, gardening, and cooking.
Linda is a senior member of the C-Suite Recruiting team. She has successfully placed both Executive/Administrative Assistants at all levels, and also works diligently on developing new client relationships. Her accomplishments as a recruiter came naturally to her, drawing on a decade of experience as a Relationship Manager offering high end technology solutions for banks and brokerage firms in New York City and then working for the Pataki Administration as Director/Strategic Business. Linda considers herself a true “relationship builder” who knows the key to success is being a great listener to both employers and candidates.
Linda is a native of Larchmont, NY and resides there with her family. After her son was diagnosed with Autism, she took her life-long love of sports (competitive tennis and paddle tennis player), by committing her time and energy to Backyard Sports Cares, a Westchester based non- profit that offers quality sports programs to special needs children. After hours, she can be found relaxing with friends at a local restaurant, kickboxing at the gym, participating in some sport (tennis, soccer, baseball, basketball), or teaching kids on the Autism Spectrum to help instill life-long confidence in their abilities. Linda earned her B.A. in English from the University of Virginia.
Gerry Sheridan is a Senior Recruiter at C-Suite Assistants, headquartered in New York, NY.
Gerry grew up in Pelham Manor, NY and moved to NYC after getting her university degree. For over a decade, Gerry was a facilitator and copywriter running ideation sessions and branding workshops for many large companies, including members of the Fortune 500. She helped clients create and position new products, find new ways to market existing products, and wrote the subsequent positioning adceps. Through this experience she gained an in depth understanding of the business world and has found this experience relevant to recruiting for clients and helping candidates to define their brand. During this time Gerry also wrote comedy and became an award-winning, published playwright whose work has been produced across the US and in the UK. Several years ago, Gerry transitioned into recruiting (while still writing comedy in her spare time), and spent five years at a boutique staffing agency where she discovered she had a knack for recruiting. She recruited for all types of positions across various industries, and specialized in Executive Assistants, Administrative Assistants, Personal Assistants and House Managers. In this capacity, Gerry worked with both C-level executives and high-net worth individuals finding them assistants who were the right fit, both in skills and in those intangibles that are so important. Gerry joined C-Suite Assistants in 2016 and has found a professional home working with fellow recruiters who believe in what they do and maintain a high level of integrity and service to both clients and candidates. When a bi-coastal entrepreneur was looking for an assistant, Gerry knew that his connections in Hollywood would make him appreciative of a candidate who had experience working for talent agents and managers. They were a perfect match and have been working successfully together for the past 3 years. Gerry’s background in film and theater gives her a behind the scenes understanding of what a client in these fields is looking for and the synergy between the business side and the creative side of these fields.
Gerry earned her B.A. in English Literature from Stony Brook University. She lives in Brooklyn Heights where she plays squash, writes and dotes on her dog.
