Doug Paulo, VP, IT Product Leader, Kelly Services, Inc.

Kris is the type of professional one wants to align with and is a colleague one truly values on many levels. I have worked with Kris over the last two years, and without a doubt she is a natural when it comes to both consulting and driving results. While working on several special projects with Kris, I was able to witness her take complex situations and segment them in a way that was both rational and actionable. Kris’ experience ranges from sales, operations, management, talent acquisition, workforce analytics to product management.

Kris has the ability to think out of the box and leverages multiple disciplines and frameworks to create effective, just in time solutions. One of Kris’ greatest strengths is that she can take ideas or business challenges from concept or diagnosis all the way through execution and results. She is passionate about excellence and she makes sure that whatever she works on gets delivered with the highest quality.

As a peer, Kris is a great sounding board for ideas. She also is proficient at research and content dissemination and can take multiple findings across industries and apply them to a range of challenges to surpass objectives. Kris is the type of colleague you feel fortunate to work with and hope to have connection with your entire career. Kris would be an asset to any organization she works with and I would recommend her without hesitation.less

Kris Butterworth Farro, Children & Youth Manager at Bladium, Inc.

I recently needed some insight and guidance in planning my second career. I knew I wanted a change but wasn’t sure where I wanted to go next. I sought out Kristina because of her expertise in recruitment and knowledge of job market trends. She knows what employers and looking for. Kristina helped me identify the key positions for which my talents would be best suited and encouraged me to aim high and find the right fit. She gave me resume and interviews tips that helped me get my foot in the door in a very competitive job market. I highly recommend Kristina for her ability to provide personable, creative and realistic career coaching.”

Bob Lyons, Global Staffing Industry Executive / Entrepreneur

I had the pleasure of knowing and managing Kris for close to 10 years. In that time, she has been involved in starting a financial staffing branch in a new market and turning into one of the most successful launches in the business unit’s history, being promoted to running a region of cities, and most recently reporting directly to me in managing the growth of the financial staffing brand covering half of North America.

Kris is a true professional who comes to work with passion every day. She doesn’t rest until she knows she has made a difference in the markets she supports in their goal of growing the business which she is entrusted to help them with. She has a unique sense for assessing where her assigned markets are with respect to their knowledge and understanding of her product and then quickly gets at designing a customized solution to help them move that understanding forward. It is a rare day when I don’t get a compliment about Kris from the markets she works with.

In front of our clients, I can’t think of a stronger person to represent our brand. Recently she was instrumental in winning a piece of business for Kelly with a global Fortune 100 client, beating out several well know competitors in our space.

If I was launching or trying to grow my brand presence, I could think of no one stronger that I would want on my team.less

Matt Chambers, Talent Scout / The Gap, Inc.

I reported to Kris as my Regional Manager while working at Kelly Financial Resources as an Accounting and Finance Recruiter for a period of about nine months. I clicked with Kris immediately and found her to be an organized, professional, approachable and highly competent Regional Manager. Kris understands her business and is excellent both operationally and strategically. Kris was instrumental in the coordination and provision of ongoing training and coaching which helped me to achieve success in my role. She also did a great job of keeping us motivated and informed, by regularly communicating with us about new industry trends and company-wide initiatives. I would absolutely recommend Kris as a strong asset to any employer or client in a Management, Product Management, or Consulting role.

Rik Avalos, Sr. Recruiter, Airware

I was lucky enough to work for one of the finest leaders at Kelly Financial Resources. Kristina is diligent in her direction and sets expectations clearly. She’s a tremendous mentor and understands how to support a recruitment team. In other words, she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. I would strongly recommend Kristina for any role and I would jump at the opportunity to work with her in the future.less
