Natalie Lemons, Founder and President of Resilience Group, LLC, specializes in the area of Staffing and Recruiting and services a diverse group of local and regional companies, focusing on mid to upper-level management searches in a variety of industries.
Natalie began her career in the Human Resources industry over eighteen years ago, while looking for a summer job to supplement her income as a teacher. She enjoyed the work immensely; so much so, she returned the second summer and never looked back! She approaches her role in a consultative manner, as a counselor, rather than a “sales” person. Each company (and opening within it) is a unique one, so analyzing personalities of employees and company culture is imperative to her. As a result, she has earned a loyal client base, consistently looking to add reputable organizations to her portfolio.
Her current portfolio of clients includes manufacturing, aerospace, consumer products, insurance, healthcare and retail industries. The clients range in size from small, privately held organizations to large, multibillion-dollar, publicly held corporations. Searches are conducted on a national level and tailored to the customers’ needs, rather than sourcing from a single talent base.
Natalie is a graduate of Cleveland State University and holds advanced degrees in Education, Community Health, and Sports Medicine. Natalie is a member of Your Partner In HR and continues to learn and share innovative techniques in sourcing and searching for top talent in a technological time. She enjoys using her past teaching experience to provide informative presentations to business leaders.
When Natalie is not meeting new candidates and clients, she enjoys spending time with her family, exercising and volunteer work.
