Kim George founded Overture Placements in 2016.
Kim brings a combined background in client services and human resources from a number of industries, from large international corporations to small startups. She has experience across a variety of fields and has an extensive national network of contacts through her work in Human Resources, IT, Marketing, Finance, Insurance, Non-Profits, Healthcare, Hospitality and Sales. With a specialty focus on national, executive level searches, she is adept at developing strong relationships with both clients and candidates. Kim takes great pride in finding that best fit that leads to long-term, productive partnerships.
Kim's professional journey began in client services at a global advertising firm in New York City. Upon moving upstate to Central New York, she transitioned to her family’s business, where she served as a manager with a human resources emphasis. Kim then went on to join the Center for Career Services at Colgate University, her alma mater, where she connected students with alumni for career programming. Recognizing her passion for helping others pursue their own professional goals, Kim decided to focus on recruitment. Inspired by her successes recruiting for another firm, Kim branched out on her own, and Overture Placements was born.
Kim believes strongly in giving back to the community and serves on the Board of Directors for the Women’s Employment Resource Center (WERC), a non-profit organization that provides personalized training to help women identify and achieve their employment goals. She also serves on the Advisory Council for the New Visions program at Madison-Oneida BOCES, which offers high school seniors internship experiences and professional career preparation.
When not recruiting, Kim enjoys gardening, reading, running, and traveling with her husband and two children.
