katieConnector, builder, and facilitator are three adjectives that personify Katie Hadnett’s business ethic. As Centennial’s Executive Transition Leader and Director of First Impressions, Katie connects executives in career transition with leaders who can build their network and facilitate their next step. Katie gathers a deep understanding of the best “4C” fit, whether the candidate is exploring options confidentially or is already engaged in active career transition.  Furthermore, Katie assists in “connecting the dots” between transition candidates, the Centennial team, and career opportunities.  A meeting with Katie in person or on the phone is frequently a candidate’s “first stop” at Centennial, hence her secondary title, “Director of First Impressions!”

Katie’s background in the executive search business, coupled with experience in the financial services sector have cemented her understanding of the importance of “relationships.” This skill expands candidate networks, and further enhances our clients’ teams.
