Senior Partner - Direct Hire
Successful recruiters enjoy connecting the best people with the best companies all while being aware of the impact they are able to have on someone’s life or career. Alexandra Henderson enjoys not just finding a position for someone but rather helping them elevate their careers and take the next steps in their professional lives.
Alexandra joined Lucas Group in 2017 in the Accounting & Finance practice. She immediately made her mark at the firm, being promoted to Senior Executive Search Consultant and making sales trip within her first full fiscal year. In her role, she sources high-caliber talent for contract and contract-to-hire positions within leading employers throughout the Los Angeles metro area. Impressively, 47 percent of her contract placements convert to permanent positions, and 30 percent of her contract positions have a permanent offer rather than a temporary offer. With a genuine desire to have a direct, positive impact on people’s lives, Alexandra is open and transparent with her candidates and maintains a broad perspective throughout the entire process.
Prior to Lucas Group, Alexandra worked for a staffing firm for nearly two years that specialized in nonprofit organizations in Chicago. While there, she placed temporary candidates in a variety of positions within nonprofits, ranging from administrative assistants to development managers. Alexandra’s experience in the industry together with her honesty and diligence ensure she makes thoughtful, strategic matches that yield success for all parties.
Alexandra spends her free time reading, skiing, binging Netflix shows as well as advising her collegiate sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma. Alexandra holds a B.S. in Communications from the University of Utah.
