Karen Harvey Consulting Group has bolstered its team by naming Michael Bowes managing director of executive search at the New York office and Caroline Pill as director of recruitment at the London office.
Harvey said the appointments further the strategy initiated 18 months ago, when Jacqui Marcus rejoined the group as president. The firm operates with three divisions and two headquarter offices that concentrate on talent acquisition, organizational development, brand incubation and investment advisory services for the luxury goods, fashion and retail sectors. The New York office specializes in C-level talent acquisition and consulting to brands and investors, while the London office focuses on luxury goods, specifically in the European and Asia-Pacific markets.
Bowes has 18 years of human resources experience in the fashion and retail industry, having worked at Saks Fifth Avenue, Tommy Hilfiger, Nike and Coach. He’s been involved in long-term talent strategies, succession planning and recruitment. Pill previously worked for Spencer Stuart executive search, covering the international fashion and luxury sector, particularly women’s wear, jewelry and accessories. Earlier, she was a corporate lawyer. A Belgian national, Pill speaks five languages and has worked in Brussels, Amsterdam, New York, Shanghai and London.
