The Founders
With founders Michael Scissons and Kristin Sheridan at the helm, Careerlist is led by a team of innovators with over 30 years of shared experiences building high-growth teams. These proven pioneers are ushering in a new era of technology-centric executive search with top candidate experience.
Careerlist founders, Michael Scissons and Kristin Sheridan, were frustrated with the slow and ineffective traditional recruiting practices and saw a vision to create a faster, smarter, more reliable executive search practice.

Michael Scissons

Michael draws from his over 15 years of experience launching successful startups and guiding high-growth companies as an active Board Member. Michael’s previous company, Flashstock, where he was co-founder and chairman, grew into the global leader in Content as a Service and was acquired by Shutterstock in 2017. Previously, Michael was the VP of eCommerce at AB InBev where he led the global eCommerce businesses, launching and acquiring operations in 10+ countries. His early career was working with Facebook where he launched their Canadian sales operations in 2006.

Kristen Sheridan

President & Co-Founder, Kristin Sheridan draws from over 15 years in executive search where she has worked at top multinational firms including CT and Caldwell Partners. Over this time she has built a reputation for speed and excellence as a trusted partner to executives and board members for hiring top executives across finance, sales, marketing, HR, and legal. Kristin’s frustration with the speed and lack of innovation in the larger analog firms led her to join Careerlist in a quest to improve the experience for both companies and candidates.
