AccruePartners Welcomes Laura Saum!
AccruePartners is pleased to announce the recent addition of Laura Saum to the team! Laura joins AccruePartners as an Executive Recruiter on our Alternative Investments team.
Originally from Pawleys Island, South Carolina, Laura learned of the recruiting world early on from her father, also an Executive Recruiter. Laura studied English and Environmental Science at the University of Virginia but the interest in recruiting was always in the back of her mind. Post-college, she was hired by Oracle and moved to San Francisco where she focused on business development and enterprise accounts. Four years later she joined the staffing world with a firm in California that gave her the opportunity to really understand the industry and gain valuable experience. She was able to work in three divisions with progressive responsibility and leadership. Her diligence in this role earned her a spot in the Rookie of the Year class, followed by Assistant Vice President distinction for those who had billed over $1MM in gross profit. Late in 2016 Laura relocated back to the south and it did not take her long to find AccruePartners.
“I have been able to build relationships with candidates and clients, helping the right people find each other at the right time. It is an exciting moment in the firm’s evolution to have come onboard and I am looking forward to playing an instrumental role in its continued growth over the coming years,” says Laura.
Outside the office, Laura writes, paints, plays tennis, and takes her dog, Dr. Gonzo backpacking. She also serves on the UVA Alumni Board in Charlotte, where she heads up community service for the chapter. In Charlotte, you can find her exploring craft breweries and museums, but she also enjoys traveling to new places – Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Spain, Mexico, Haiti, and Africa is next on the horizon.
We’re excited to welcome Laura onboard!
