Her responsibilities will include assisting with critical, and complex direct hire and project based search assignments for our global clients and other well recognized business organizations.
Bryan, who previously served as Partner and Founder/President for two successful financial recruitment and project consulting firms, has provided in-depth domestic and international professional search and candidate evaluation services to some of Houston’s most prestigious companies. Moreover, she has been retained and recognized by her clients because of her proven ability to carefully understand her clients’ needs, and then work repeatedly to deliver value to them in a timely manner. Bryan started her career as an auditor at KPMG. Then, she held roles in Accounting and Regulatory & Strategic Affairs for El Paso Corporation (formerly Tenneco).

We are very excited that upon her return to the workforce, she has decided to join AXIA. Her passion for excellence and drive to help clients obtain a superior return on their talent, financial consulting, and information technology investment will serve our clients very well,” he said.
