Every day is different and my work enables me to help others achieve their goals. I derive the greatest career satisfaction from fostering a placement where that professional goes on to achieve great things in their career and contributes to the success of their company. It's professionally satisfying to do work that both makes a positive impact on people’s lives and contributes to a company’s bottom line.

Alisa Tazioli, a Managing Director, joined the Seattle office in 2005 and leads in-house counsel searches throughout the Pacific Northwest market. Alisa brings legal recruiting experience both from law firm and corporate settings, having lead corporate counsel searches, including for general counsel, for public and private companies based in the Pacific Northwest. She works on behalf of clients from Fortune 500, publicly traded and privately held, placing high-performing candidates who also mesh well with the organization's culture. She takes the time to understand her client's overall business and working environment and then provides them with deep insights on each candidate she presents. For her candidates, Alisa shares insights about her clients' needs and takes the time to get to know her candidates well to discern if there is a good match for an opportunity.

A lifelong resident of the Seattle area, Alisa enjoys all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. She is an active board member of the Northwest Minority Job Fair and contributes to her community through other charitable activities.
