Our Story

Frustrated with the slow and antiquated practice of the executive search industry, co-founders Michael Scissons and Kristin Sheridan had a vision to create a faster, smarter and more reliable firm.

Michael Scissons

CEO & Co-Founder

A seasoned leader, entrepreneur and investor, Michael draws from more than  15 years of experience launching successful startups and guiding high-growth companies.

Rooted in content and innovation, Michael  previously founded Flashstock, which grew into the global leader in the Content as a Service space. The company  was acquired by Shutterstock in 2017.

Before breaking out on his own, Michael was the VP of eCommerce at AB InBev. Here he  was responsible for the global eComm business, including launching operations in 10+ countries and building out teams across the world.

His early career was working with Facebook where he launched their Canadian sales operations in 2006.


Kristin Sheridan

President & Co-Founder

President & Co-Founder, Kristin Sheridan is  no stranger to the executive search field. For more than 15 years, Kristin has been a leader at top multinational firms including CT and Caldwell Partners.

Throughout her career, Kristin has built an impeccable reputation as a trusted partner and advisor to executives and board members across finance, sales, legal, marketing and HR.

Kristin’s frustration with the speed, bureaucracy and lack of innovation in the larger analog firms led her to join Careerlist, where she is able to lead the charge on creating a better experience for both companies and candidates.
