Executive search firm Charles Aris Inc. has promoted recruiting practice leader Sarah Becker to vice president. In her new role, Becker will add deepening senior leadership responsibilities as she continues to recruit Engineering & Operations and Sales & Marketing leaders for client organizations in the Private Equity and Consumer spaces.

During her three years as a Charles Aris practice leader, Becker has placed 32 leaders in client organizations. She has partnered with 24 unique companies across the Engineering & Operations and Sales & Marketing functions.

“I feel fortunate to be part of a company that encourages, supports and rewards personal and professional growth”, Becker said. “When I joined this organization three years ago, I was looking for the opportunity to make an impact and enjoy personal success while continuing to improve my professional skills. I have found that and more here at Charles Aris, and look forward to this next step in my career journey.”

Senior associate recruiter Josh Winters, who has worked directly with Becker, reflected on the meaningful impact she has had on him during his time in the firm.

“I have worked on countless projects with Sarah over the past couple of years, and she truly is a trusted mentor, coach, guide and friend,” Winters said. “I am thrilled to see that Sarah has not only excelled in growing her practice but has been an exemplary cultural beacon to those around her while doing so.”

In addition to her Six Sigma Green Belt certification, Becker has an impressive, diverse background in customer service, business development, project management, finance and sales. In her free time, you can find Sarah and her husband, David, at an ice rink watching their son’s hockey games and supporting their daughter, a thriving sophomore at UNC-Wilmington.

Becker joined Charles Aris Inc. in 2015 after serving as a vice president in a private equity portfolio furniture company. During her time there, she helped strategically maneuver the company through bankruptcy, and was then retained by the private equity firm post purchase and selected by the newly appointed CEO to sit at the executive table. Becker partnered with eight other colleagues on the senior leadership team, playing a key role in restructuring and rebuilding several iconic furniture brands.

Becker’s commitment to the firm’s Engineering & Operations and Sales & Marketing functional recruiting practices are evident to the entire Charles Aris team as well as the organization’s clients and candidates. The firm’s senior leaders are excited to watch her excel in this new role.
