While in college, Libby held a variety of interesting jobs which piqued her interest in learning about other people and establishing genuine connections with everyone she met. She worked for Miller Brewing, Road America (an internationally renowned racetrack), and a family-owned, mechanical contracting business. Through these experiences, she developed strong interpersonal skills that have contributed to her impressive success in the recruiting business. When Libby graduated from college, she moved from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to Saint Paul, Minnesota and began her career in staffing and recruiting with an international staffing firm. Her talent and hard work were quickly recognized, as she rose to manage a team and eventually an entire branch for 9 years.
Eager for a new challenge, Libby began working with local talent firms where she developed a successful sales recruitment program from the ground up. Shortly after, she was promoted to Business Development Director in the Accounting and Finance Search Division; and held that title until 2021, when she took on a new role to further her ambitions in the professional staffing industry. Today, Libby is a business owner and Co-Founder of Heisler Kopp Executive Search.
