Cornerstone Financial Recruiting

Cornerstone Financial Recruiting (CFR) is a search firm founded by an experienced and award-winning recruiter. It is founded on the principle of being “committed to excellence and integrity” with every client and candidate relationship. CFR has a tremendous network that has grown through 30+ years of recruiting in the Banking and Financial Services industries in the Midwest and Plains States, as well as Nationally. 


As an award-winning recruiter with 30+ years of experience, I specialize in Banking and Financial Services. I recruit both locally and regionally, with proven experience in all areas of Banking. 

When working with you, my approach is to help identify your specific needs by thoroughly discussing the position and learning all I can about your company and culture. I then find candidates that fit your unique criteria, screening for experience, production and personality, saving you precious time and resources. Once the interview process begins, I debrief candidates, call references and ensure the candidate is the ideal fit. Please know I communicate thoroughly with you during the entire process. You remain informed but never overwhelmed.

My 10+ years of experience in higher education – focusing on teaching, career counseling and resume building – was a great springboard to launch me into recruiting. My approach to finding talent and supporting Cornerstone is to cast a wide geographical net, allowing candidates to learn about the diverse opportunities and make an informed decision whether they want to pursue a position. Once a candidate expresses interest in an opportunity, I work with them to schedule next steps in the recruiting process, ensuring they are thoroughly informed along the way.
