Michelle Joseph is the Founder and CEO of PeopleFoundry, a progressive recruiting consultancy headquartered in Chicago. She started PeopleFoundry in 2013 to remedy what she saw as a pervasive misalignment between companies’ talent needs and the ability of existing recruiting firms to meet those needs. Michelle is an incredible leader and has been able to keep PeopleFoundry 100% bootstrapped and the company’s clients 100% referral based. She has an enormous direct impact on the growth and progress of the companies she works to build, some examples being Kapow Events, Label Insight, SpotHero, EBTH, PowerReviews and Legacy.com. Her devotion to each client and passionate work ethic is unparalleled in the recruiting industry. PeopleFoundry has helped build teams for over 45 companies and in over 15 cities to date. She is a mentor at 1871, the HR mentor at MATTER, board member at Designation Labs, contributor to the Taproot Foundation, and a member of the Young Executives Club of Chicago.
