Shree Thakarar is a Senior Recruiting Associate at McDermott & Bull, supporting Principal Consultants on executive-level searches. She started her career at a small retained executive search firm in London, beginning as a Recruiting Coordinator and quickly working her way up to a Professional Search Consultant, where she ran a full-cycle retained search desk, including both business development and recruiting in IT, Sales and Retail. After five years, Shree moved to Chicago, where she worked for a small boutique firm and was responsible for business development in HR and Marketing. After relocating to the West Coast, Shree worked for another small boutique firm, concentrating on recruiting in the Accounting and Finance sector, and later joined a global corporate organization, where she spent four years recruiting high-level technical professionals in Infrastructure and Development roles.
Shree utilizes a collaborative approach to recruiting and focuses on relationship-building and strategic recruiting. She believes relationships, trust, and accountability are the foundation for a successful career in recruiting, and nothing makes her happier than hearing the positive impacts she has made.
I am originally from Chicago, Illinois and a very proud Chicagoan! I love my Bears, Cubs and The Bulls! I attended National Louis University and graduated with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
When I am not making magic happen at my desk, you’ll find me spending time with my husband and 2 very active boys – who keep me on my toes! I am a real foodie and love to adventure out and try new restaurants – I have yet to find a good pizzeria in Southern California!
