Chief Talent Scout
In 2009, Constance Klein realized her dream of bringing together a team of experienced experts from the worlds of fashion, luxury and lifestyle to create a powerful industry resource for talent acquisition… and SCOUT TALENT was born.
Constance now leads the boutique search firm’s growing group of professionals to deliver her own brand of talent acquisition. Her authenticity and knowledge of the business inspire confidence in clients and candidates alike. She knows how to dig deep by asking questions that get to the heart of a matter, and she has the courage to address the elephant in the room.
Armed with years of experience working inside global image-driven brands, Constance possesses first-hand knowledge of all aspects of the organizations she represents. While living abroad in Italy, Spain and the UK over a 20-year period, she worked
directly with two fashion industry greats, Domenico De Sole and Diego Della Valle. She maintains a broad international network; many of her former colleagues at Gucci, Saint Laurent, Boucheron, Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen are now top industry leaders.
Working in the US and internationally, Constance has a proven track record of leading C-level and senior management talent searches across all business functions for entrepreneurial start-ups and established global brands such as Tory Burch, Louis Vuitton, Barneys, Under Armour, Chanel, Gap, Diane Von Furstenberg, Zegna, Coach and Hautelook.com.
Constance pays close attention to technology trends and has a keen interest in the impact of digital and social media on all aspects of retail and organizational development. She serves on the Advisory Board of a start-up called The Digital Marvels − a ‘next generation’ omnichannel extended CRM platform.
Above all, Constance is a passionate leader and consummate relationship builder who operates with integrity in all that she does. With Scout Talent she has realized a dream to harness top minds in the industry to serve fashion, lifestyle and luxury brands. As an advisor and IPEC-trained professional coach, Constance works with people from all walks of life to help them gain insight, confidence and clarity about ‘what’s next’ in their career and beyond. Constance is a student of leadership; her interest in human potential is unbounded.
