>>Cynthia Nelson is Founder and President of NexGen Search Solutions. She founded the company on one simple principle – to deliver the same high-quality retained executive search product, but to only charge clients for time actually spent working on the project, which means they’ll meet the exact same candidates at a fraction of the fee. Each of NexGen’s recruiters are functional experts with a minimum of 10 years of experience. They work in a team of four – Research, Recruiter, Scheduler, and Client Manager. Each team member is a seasoned professional with a proven track record. Prior to founding NexGen Search, in 2007, Cynthia spent 11 years building the West Coast HR search practice for three national search firms, where she recruited effective teams across multiple industries, including technology, financial services, manufacturing, consumer products, life sciences, professional services, and not-for-profit. Cynthia has joined the ABL-Tech OC Round Table.


In September, ABL will hold its Round Tables via ZOOM to ensure Social Distancing for our Members. See your Zoom Table invitation for participation instructions, and the Members Only website for all the invitation specifics.
