JENNIFER COLOSI, Founder

What sets Jennifer’s firm apart from other executive search firms is that she complements her role as an executive search consultant with 17 years of accounting and finance expertise.
Jennifer began her recruiting career as an executive recruiter with AI Executive, the executive recruiting arm of Accountants, Inc. She was a significant contributor to building a practice around Internal Audit during challenging economic years. Next, she was a Partner with Cornell International, the executive search arm of Adecco, where she focused on national Financial Officer searches across industries. She then launched Colosi Associates to improve client benefits: through search process efficiency improvements and service offering flexibility. She has successfully placed key executive roles such as Divisional CFOs of large pubic companies, VP Finance/CFO of a rapidly growing technology company, CFO of a large family office, Corporate Controller and similar titles. Most recently Colosi Associates has also placed executive human resource roles.
Prior to her search career, Jennifer was a CPA in the independent audit practice of Arthur Andersen. Jennifer earned increased responsibilities by demonstrating leadership capabilities very early in her career. Jennifer frequently adds value beyond the responsibilities expected of her. She identifies unsolved problems and inefficiencies and is fearless about finding ways to solve them! She has also held the positions of Chief Accounting Officer for FiNet, a public mortgage bank and interim CFO for LoanCity.com, a private mortgage bank. She’s also worked for Oak Industries—where she focused on corporate accounting, Securities and Exchange Commission reporting, and divisional operations accounting.
Jennifer is a past board member of the Financial Women’s Association of San Francisco charged with developing a strong Silicon Valley group. She actively contributes to the success of other professional organizations such as Financial Executives International and the Institute of Internal Auditors. Her most interactive, high energy, current non profit project is coaching elementary school girls to run a 5k race, for the fall 2012 season of Girls on the Run.
