We are selective and accept a limited number of engagements.  This selectivity enables The Katris Group to focus on its clients without distraction or conflict to achieve successful outcomes.  Each engagement is led by the firm founder, Stephanie Katris, with the support of specialized research professionals.



We offer highly customized solutions to leadership challenges.  We do not accept concurrent engagements in the same industry, therefore clients of The Katris Group will not compete for the same talent or target company universe.  Until an assignment is concluded, we will not work with competitors of our client.  We will NEVER recruit from our client companies.



We gain a thorough understanding of our client companies' unique leadership and governance needs.  Based on each client's unique criteria, we recruit the best leaders of today and the future.  Because we enjoy unfettered access to a wide universe of leaders and companies, and we have strong relationships in Fortune 1000  boards and C-Suites, we provide our clients with outstanding leadership solutions that create shareholder value.





Stephanie has more than 30 years experience in governance consulting and executive search. She is a former Partner at a boutique executive recruiting firm, where her Fortune 1000 practice encompassed CEO succession, board evaluation and assessment, board director search, and advising leaders on board selection.


Stephanie also led corporate recruiting for VisaNow, Inc. She built the administrative and human capital infrastructure for this successful internet services company that was sold to private equity firm General Catalyst Partners. She also established the first in-house talent management and recruiting function at Citadel Investment Group, one of the world's largest hedge funds.  Stephanie began her executive search career at Heidrick & Struggles.
