Experience, talent and passion

for the right fit.

Founder and managing partner Sherry Cadsawan has more than 20 years of experience identifying top talent for leadership roles. Well known for conducting executive searches with the utmost integrity and superior methodology, Sherry has partnered with start-ups as well as Fortune 500s to place hundreds of candidates in key positions, bringing to every project a unique, proven ability to help companies build bench strength by identifying and recruiting the right leadership talent. According to Sherry and Talence Group,

It's all about getting the right leadership fit. The right fit means everything is in alignment: leadership style, organizational need, company culture, functional and behavioral competencies, and a candidate’s passion for the job.  If these things line up, then you have gained the best employee.


Prior to Talence Group, Sherry worked as a corporate human resources leader specializing in finding key talent for her organizations—leading companies such as Intel Corporation, FEI Technology, Credence-LTX, Lattice Semiconductor and Stancorp Financial Group (The Standard). She has placed CEOs and executives, and filled other critical positions, for companies in the US and globally, including India, Singapore, China, Brazil, UK, Italy and Germany.

Drawing on Sherry's diverse background and proven talent selection methods, Talence Group uses a specialized approach to ensure the successful placement of the right talent in executive (CxO, SVP, EVP) and senior-level critical positions for wide-ranging organizations.
