Donna Dietrich joined The Finders six years ago, specifically to lead the launch of HR Finders. She is an extreme relationship builder with a vast network in the local market. The running joke is that Donna knows just about everyone in Phoenix and their mother, brother, and sister, too. Donna has more than two decades in the local recruiting space. Fifteen of them in HR.
At the beginning of her career, Donna worked closely with clients’ HR teams. These were the people directing her recruiting activity on behalf of the clients she served. She gained an invaluable understanding of their role, their needs and the outsized impact they can and do have on companies and organizations.
A “connector” since birth, Donna says her secret to success in the relationship-driven recruiting space is the intentionality she brings to connecting people. Her roots run deep across the Phoenix market. She prides herself on her ability to bring like-spirited people together, often with expectation-exceeding results. “Who can I help you meet?” Donna said that simple, selfless opening has led to more than a few great outcomes.
A Finders evangelist, she recognizes talk is cheap. “Meeting with me and seeing firsthand what I am about, what we’re about; our approach is the best business development I know.” She deadpanned, “When can we connect?”
Prior to joining The Finders, Donna has led a successful career with two other prominent staffing firms. A veteran of both contract and direct hire placement, Donna is known for creative solutions that fill hard to find positions. Donna sits on the board of Arizona Human Resource Executive Forum (AZHREF) in addition to being a member of SHRM, specifically serving on the College Relations Committee. Donna is a graduate of the University of Arizona where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing.
