Robert Palermo

Senior Managing Director - Healthcare

As a Senior Managing Director within The Execu|Search Group’s Healthcare division, Robert oversees local and travel staffing initiatives across our Therapy specialty area. Focused on new business development and team operations, Robert has played an integral role in the division’s national growth.

Prior to joining The Execu|Search Group in 2014, Robert worked at another staffing firm where he recruited for a wide range of industries. This experience gave him a well-rounded view of the industry, which helped him hit the ground running when he started at Execu|Search as a Staffing Manager. He quickly ascended to his current leadership position through his commitment to customer service and team building. He also conducts training for internal staff on recruitment strategies and sales tactics.

“I always aim to be personal, real, and honest,” says Robert. “We’re in the business of helping people grow their organizations and build their careers, so the actions we take say it all. If we’re going to ensure our partners are successful, we need to listen, follow up, and regularly check in regardless of whether we’re working on a search.”

Robert graduated from Rutgers University where he majored in Human Resources and Psychology. When he’s not working, he enjoys traveling the world, exploring the New York City restaurant scene, hanging out with friends and family, giving back to those in need, and retail therapy.
