Joining Zeren as Research Manager, US, By Bethany Burkman

Calendar icon 16th August 2022

By Bethany Burkman. Bethany is Research Manager US, with ownership and responsibility of Zeren's US Research capability across the region.

I spent the last six years placing Executives across the US in a variety of industries and roles, and always loved working with high-growth companies, particularly PE or VC-backed organisations. The passion and drive present in these organizations creates an exciting opportunity for firms like Zeren to be a true business partner in a time of need. When I saw that Zeren’s client base was focused on high-growth businesses, I knew that it would be an exciting place to work.


The backstory of Zeren’s creation out of the Renovata Group told me that this company exudes excellence and provides nothing short of high-quality service to their clients. I believe that as a search firm, we are true business advisors to our clients, helping guide them through some of the most crucial hiring processes that directly impact the success of their business. Renovata Group, and now Zeren, embody that mission and I couldn’t be happier to join in.


Joining Zeren also presented an opportunity for me to help build and develop the Research function within the US. Since expanding into the US a few years ago, Zeren USA has seen exponential growth, and I am thrilled to be a part of helping to continue that success by developing a best-in-class Research team to support our US Search Partners and global clients.


With their dynamic client base, strong relationship with Renovata Group, and their growth in the US and globally, the opportunity to join Zeren seems like a dream come true.
