Principal Search Consultant and President Kay Sarginson enjoys guiding individuals and organizations through the search and placement process. Having operated within the CPG space for over a decade, she understands what combinations of skills, capabilities and characteristics match her clients’ organizational needs.

Kay  received her Bachelor’s Degree in English from the University of South Florida where she also studied marketing and business. Before pursuing a career in executive search, she taught in private and public education from the elementary to college level.  For ten years she worked in  sales and marketing for Gillette.  While completing a Master’s degree, she worked at the Small Business Development Center of the University of South Florida as a business consultant. In this capacity, she became accustomed to interacting with business and industry leaders, discussing their service needs, and learning first-hand what qualities organizations seek in potential employees.

In 1989, she joined a national recruitment firm in Tampa and quickly elevated within the search hierarchy. It was through this experience that she honed her skills in search, operations management and business development.  When she opened Kay Sarginson, Inc., she focused on all disciplines in the CPG arena.

Kay helps her clients to build top-shelf teams by guiding them through hiring decisions that fills an immediate void, but also makes long term sense.
