TillmanCarlson Appoints Kelly Carlson as President & CEO

It’s an exciting time at TillmanCarlson with Kelly Carlson becoming the firm’s President & CEO. As the firm enters its 16th year as one of the country’s leading executive search boutiques, Kelly’s promotion sets the stage for TillmanCarlson to continue to grow, innovate and provide a clear alternative to the large human capital firms.

“When we founded the firm in 2002, we set out to build a firm that was distinctly different from the large executive search firms. We also sought to establish a firm that would live on beyond its founders, committed to the guiding principles of teamwork, transparency, responsibility, and authenticity.
With Kelly and I in the prime of our careers, now is the perfect time for Kelly to serve as our CEO, and I’m excited to exclusively focus on leading our most senior level searches, and formally launching our executive coaching services,” stated Rob Tillman.

“Rob and I have enjoyed great success over the last 15 years, and we’re more optimistic and confident in our ability to serve our clients in an outstanding fashion than we’ve ever been. I’m grateful for Rob’s vision, passion, and commitment to building a firm based on teamwork and doing great work, and TillmanCarlson is truly built to last.
As I step into my new role, I will continue to make serving our clients my number one priority. Everything we do is focused on delivering results for our clients, and I’ve never seen a greater need in the market for the personal attention and expertise we deliver,” added Carlson.
