Assistant Practice Director – Real Estate & Financial Services

Kate joined CSP in June 2023 as a senior member of the Real Estate & Financial Services practice.

Kate began her recruiting career in 2003 with MRI Baltimore/Timonium. There she focused on developing long-term relationships with clients and candidates in the Baltimore – Washington corridor. Her areas of expertise were administrative, commercial real estate, human resources, and legal. After a several-year hiatus in Tennessee, Kate returned to Maryland and rejoined MRI in their healthcare finance practice group. Working a national desk, Kate honed her national recruiting and relocation skills and focused her efforts on relationships with senior executives. Core competencies included Chief Financial Officer, senior-level accounting and finance, and compliance positions.

With vast experience, both in terms of geography and industry, Kate brings a wealth of knowledge to the Real Estate & Financial Services practice at CSP.

Rick began his career as a CPA in public/corporate accounting. He joined the recruiting industry in 1993 with The Mergis Group. He then went on to successfully lead the Accounting & Finance Practice for Stephen James Associates.
