Alissa Henriksen

Co-President | Co-Owner

Alissa grew up in a small farming town in southern Minnesota and comes from hard working stock. Her dad was a traveling sales rep for the same company for over 32 years and her mom was a teacher. Alissa played volleyball with a junior Olympic team and received a full ride to play at South Dakota State University, where she graduated with a double major in Business Economics and Spanish.

Alissa has devoted her entire career to recruiting. After working for a large recruiting firm out of college, she started her first business in 2008 and has never looked back. She started supporting Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 companies with their recruiting strategies at the age of 24, and has built more than 15 years of experience working with clients ranging from small start-ups to billion dollar public corporations. In that time, she has recruited contributor to executive-level roles, rebuilt recruiting and interviewing processes to attract and retain talent, crafted strategies for challenging rural areas, developed proprietary ‘play books’ that guide managers through successful hiring and much more.

Like her husband and partner, Lucas, she adores her family and loves traveling and spending time with them up north.
