AccruePartners is excited to announce the recent addition of Cate Pace to the team!

Cate is originally from Salem, Virginia and attended Roanoke College (Go Maroons!). Cate’s story is unique in that she was first a consultant with AccruePartners on assignment with one of our leading manufacturing clients here in Charlotte. Because of the excellent level of service she had received when working with Accrue from a candidate perspective, after seven months with one of our clients, she decided she wanted to provide the same to forthcoming to candidates by joining the staffing industry.

Knowing she was ready for a career change, she worked with one of our recruiters on internal opportunities and learned the Accrue mission and core values – something she truly admired. Not long after, she joined the team as a Staffing Manager on our Accounting and Finance team.

“AccruePartners embodies the ultimate client and candidate experience. In my opinion, there isn’t another agency around that puts forth the time and effort like we do in our 17 step business system which has allowed us to achieve Inavero’s Best of Staffing awards 5 years in a row, something less than 2% of staffing agencies can claim. Not to mention, the creative office environment and vibrant personalities that fill our space make coming to work every day so much fun,” says Cate.

In her new role, she hopes that she can impact people’s lives by connecting them with an opportunity that will advance their careers and add value to the client both culturally and metrically.

Cate has an eye for design. Outside the office, you can find her binge-watching HGTV and decorating her space in new, trendy ways. She also enjoys cooking, something special she always shared with her mom.

We’re excited for Cate’s future successes with AccruePartners and are excited to welcome her to the team!

Orlando joins AccruePartners as a Senior Executive Recruiter on our Accounting and Finance team. Orlando is an East Carolina University alum, where he studied Hospitality Management. With both, a hospitality and Human Resources background, recruiting was an industry that attracted him because he enjoyed assisting professionals in making life-changing career progressions.

He is highly experienced in Executive Search in a national practice where he stood up a multi-million dollar Workday practice and was a top performer. At AccruePartners he is joining as part of the Accounting and Finance Practice focusing on senior-level searches.


“Accrue has established themselves as not only one of the best executive recruitment and staffing firms in North Carolina but nationally as well. Their consistency in delivering top-tier service to their candidates and clients have attributed to their success over the last 16 years and aligns perfectly with my morals and ethics in business,” says Orlando.


While in his role at AccruePartners Orlando hopes to represent the Accrue brand and exhibit our core values while being a pivotal contributor to the continued success of our organization on a regional and national scale.
