Lacey Lake Leadership, a leadership advisory firm that connects people with purpose to unlock business potential, is launching today to bring a purpose-driven approach to talent strategy, executive search, and human capital management to transform teams, cultures, and businesses.
Former Spencer Stuart, Korn Ferry, and Allstate executive recruiter, Madeline Hall founded Lacey Lake Leadership to provide leadership advisory services to organizations – with a focus in the private equity, professional and financial services, industrial, and consumer sectors – to create business advantage in the context of today’s transformational environment. Guided by purpose, the firm brings an agile and flexible approach to create better outcomes for people and businesses by identifying opportunities, attracting talent, and retaining and inspire teams.
“The traditional workforce has been completely disrupted, causing executives and investors to redefine what talent transformation means to their organizations, as well as re-evaluate their approach to human capital,” said Madeline Hall, managing partner, Lacey Lake Leadership. “To realize their full business potential, organizations must now become purpose-driven to meet the needs of a rapidly changing workforce – and Lacey Lake was built for this new era.”
As managing partner, Hall’s core focus is on client talent strategy, in addition to overseeing all business operations for Lacey Lake. She brings deep experience as a strategic talent partner and management consultant after serving in recruitment roles at firms including Spencer Stuart, Korn Ferry, Allstate Insurance, and Huron Consulting Group. She approaches her relationships with kindness, authenticity, and understanding. While in early stages, Lacey Lake Leadership partnered with several organizations, including Erie Street and Performance Improvement Partners, to design and deliver purpose-driven leadership transformation programs.
Hall is joined by senior partner, Bill Kushner, who joins from Addison Group. Kushner brings over 15 years of experience serving clients in private equity, professional and financial services, and the manufacturing and distribution industries. During his time with the agency, he partnered with organizational leaders to identify and deliver talent solutions, while leading teams locally and nationally.
“Talent is a critical element of any business transformation,” said Julie Cannata, chief of staff, Erie Street. “Maddie, Bill, and the Lacey Lake team are truly outcome-driven and flexible in their approach. We have had great success working together to get the right people placed in critical roles that will drive our business and partner companies forward.”
