Marketing Manager at Charles Aris Inc.
Executive search firm Charles Aris Inc. has promoted Rebecca Conway to senior associate recruiter while Nele Fritz has been promoted to senior researcher. Conway and Fritz will both continue to identify and place world-class leaders in client organizations across diversified functions and industries.
In just under two years at Charles Aris, Conway has proven herself as one of the organization’s top recruiters. She has placed 17 leaders in client organizations while working primarily within the search firm’s Strategy & Corporate Development recruiting practice. Conway also serves on the firm’s internal Wellness Committee and its Kirkwood 5K Committee, which supports an annual event helping fund Piedmont Triad nonprofit BackPack Beginnings.
“My time with Charles Aris has been such a rewarding experience,” Conway said. “I’m thrilled to be part of an organization that challenges me and supports my continued growth, rewards success and treats its employees like family.”
Fritz earned her promotion on her one-year anniversary in June. In 2020 alone, she has sourced and helped land 12 executive leaders for client organizations. In addition to her work identifying A-level talent for client search projects, she also spearheads many of the firm’s business intelligence initiatives focused on client development and continuous improvement.
“It has been a great first year with Charles Aris and I feel privileged to work among such a talented and professional team,” Fritz said.
Brian Styers, a Charles Aris vice president who leads the firm’ research, marketing and digital teams and initiatives, couldn’t agree more with Fritz’s assessment.
“It has indeed been a great first year for Nele and thus the firm, its clients and its candidates,” Styers said. “That’s precisely because Nele is an expert researcher who strategically sources and visualizes data in collaborative fashion. She has a knack for finding top talent and will undoubtedly help us reduce search cycle time with her clarifying analytics.”
Conway, meanwhile, has an accomplished background in marketing, recruiting and human resources across an array of industries. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill alum enjoys spending time with her husband, Andre, and their daughters, Caroline and Ava.
“We were lucky to land Rebecca in 2018 and it’s no surprise that she’s earned this promotion to the senior associate ranks here,” Styers said. “Rebecca is a true business partner whose professionalism is appreciated by hiring authorities and candidates alike.”
Fritz, a German national, is no stranger to knowledge management. She earned her master’s degree in library and information studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro after attaining her bachelor’s degree in library science at the Technical University of Cologne.
“I know I speak for the entire Charles Aris team when I say how excited we are for the promotions earned by Nele and Rebecca,” said COO Allen Oakley. “Each has made a tremendous impact inside and beyond the firm, and their promotions are well deserved.
“Rebecca has a special talent in understanding specific client needs and leveraging that understanding to locate and attract the highest caliber of talent on behalf of her clients,” Oakley added. “Nele is a true strategic thought partner – and it shows. Her attention to detail is incredible; she has a unique ability to uncover extremely valuable trends stemming from complex data sets.”
