Our Team

Eliane R. Fishkind

Associate Director

My Role at RSR Partners

I am responsible for leading, hiring, training, and mentoring the firm’s engagement managers, senior associates, associates, and research analysts. In addition, I execute client engagements in the firm’s Hospitality and Leisure Practice.

How I Deliver Impact

I am fortunate enough to be able to deliver impact to both my external and internal clients. In both cases, I listen and learn about the needs of my clients. While recruiting talent for my internal clients, I can get into the details of who this person needs to be to better complement the team that is seeking to fill the role. I try to cater to my external clients in the same manner, by understanding who the hiring manager is, what the culture of the company is, and how to best recruit talent that will benefit them and the company in the best manner possible.

Expertise I Bring to the Firm’s Clients

I have been in executive search for almost 20 years. Before RSR Partners, which I joined in 2015, I spent five years on the client side. I served as senior manager, talent acquisition at PepsiCo, where I was responsible for corporate recruiting across functions, including human resources, strategy, corporate finance, legal, and global procurement. Earlier in my career, I spent twelve years at Heidrick & Struggles in New York City, where I was the lead associate for the Retail, Fashion, and Luxury Goods Practice and an active member of the Human Resources and General Consumer Practices. Before I started in search, I leveraged my language skills and focused on international business, working for Giorgio Armani and Columbia Artists Management.

Life Outside RSR Partners

I was born and raised in Milan, Italy, where I not only learned to speak English, Italian, and French, but also built an appreciation for fashion and travel – all of which have served me well in my search career. I moved to the United States for college and today, my husband, my two boys, and I live in Bedford, New York where I am involved in many activities with the schools and community overall. We enjoy entertaining friends and family, attending sports and arts events, and traveling around the world.
