Jennifer Hustis, Senior Associate

Jen has a unique blend of creativity and detail that fosters a holistic approach to the needs of her clients. She comes with an interesting mix of industry, consulting, and recruiting experience.  Her vast knowledge of brands and the retail landscape have always been at the core of her diverse roles.

Jen started her career at Alexis Bittar as a Design Coordinator and took a deeper dive into branding when she joined Aronsson Group in 2008, a global consultancy firm that works within the luxury goods, fashion and apparel sectors.  While at Aronsson Group, Jen conducted extensive market research to evaluate competitive landscape and M&A opportunities.  Her clients included leading CEO’s, boards, and Private Equity Companies.

Jen was introduced to executive recruitment at Korn Ferry, where she worked on a small team charged with recruiting senior level talent to the firm. Jen joined Kirk Palmer Associates in 2016 and is thrilled to leverage her background in executive recruitment with her passion for brands.

On a personal note, Jen is an avid dancer and continues to explore movement through Yoga. She has been teaching Yoga since 2010 and when not on the mat, enjoys spending time with her family.  We recruited Jen to bring zen and balance to the KPA team. Namaste.
