Mickey Kampsen
Dir. Recruitment Services, Retail: Sourcing & Merchandising

Mickey is a global retail recruitment professional in sourcing and merchandising and has been in recruitment since 1985. It’s her passion – she loves the recruiting business. Not many businesses give one the opportunity to bring such positive change to people’s lives.

Mickey has a sense of humor and an ability to connect with people that lends itself to being involved in a business where there’s such large personal investment and ultimately, leap of faith being made. Not only are companies hiring candidates who will have a direct and immediate effect on their company culture, but experienced candidates are making huge changes both professionally and personally when they join a new company. Uprooting a family to make a transcontinental move is a huge change even if it is for a fantastic opportunity! The more at ease people are with Mickey, the better the entire process is from both the candidate and client company perspectives.

As a global retail recruitment professional, her business is built on solid relationships. Anyone can find a name these days – but to be able to really understand what a client company is looking for or to truly appreciate what a candidate is seeking or motivated by, takes a special skill. Mickey was fortunate enough to have great mentor recruiters in her industry, and she “grew up” learning the nuances of finding the hidden talent in the marketplace. Good skills are refined over time and good recruiters have been in this business for a while. This business was in her mentors’ DNA, and now it’s in hers!

Mickey specializes in global retail recruitment: hardlines, softlines and food. It’s her focus – it’s what she does.
