Carol Rusch has helped her clients hire exemplary talent across the US for more than 25 years. Prior to joining ASG, Carol owned a Detroit-based boutique retained executive search firm where she partnered with clients ranging from small entrepreneurial businesses to multi-billion dollar global corporations. As a Michigan native, Carol has deep expertise in automotive and manufacturing, but she also enjoys successfully servicing clients in a diverse range of industries.  Carol conducts searches for Mid-Management through C-Suite and has a substantial candidate network across all Corporate Functions including Accounting & Finance, Human Resources, Sales & Marketing and Supply Chain & Procurement.

Carol is passionate about developing business partner relationships where she acts as a representative of her client companies. She cultivates deep relationships with her clients and candidates by earning their trust and respect.  Carol attributes her success to her ability to identify candidates who align with the cultural environment of her client companies as well as the technical requirements of the role.

In merging her firm with ASG, Carol is excited to have the opportunity to offer a broader range of searches to her clients while providing the same level of service they have come to expect.
