WHAT WE'RE ABOUT

RECRUITERS WITH PURPOSE

Founded in 2008 in Milwaukee, WI, Fusion Recruiters brings nearly 100 years of combined experience in corporate recruitment, agency search and community outreach experience across multiple functions and industries.   

 

While the majority of our retained search work is located in the Upper Midwest area, we have and continue to successfully fill positions within Human Resources, Product Management, Marketing and Sales, as well as Accounting/Finance, Operations/Engineering, Procurement, and Legal nationwide.  We are incredibly proud of our President who was named a Top 10 HR Recruiter nationally in 2016 (LinkedIn; G. Blomgren),  and are equally as proud to share that Fusion Recruiters has also been published as a Top Retained Search Firm by the Milwaukee Business Journal for the last 4 consecutive years (2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019)!

John Hagenow
President/CEO

With nearly 25 years of Human Resources and Talent Acquisition leadership experience across both industry-leading recruiting agencies and corporate environments (including GE and MillerCoors), I've been fortunate enough to work with some incredibly talented HR Professionals and business leaders over the course of my career – many of whom have become friends.  The opportunity to build lasting relationships has always been the aspect of my career that I’ve enjoyed most.

A degreed HR professional (UW-Whitewater - Go Warhawks!), I quickly realized how much I enjoyed recruiting - the people, the process, and the impact that hiring talented individuals has.  It may sound a little profound, but being able to exceed a client’s expectations by bringing extraordinary talent into their recruiting process and hiring a top performer – while also positively impacting that candidate’s career and their family – is exceptionally rewarding.  There’s nothing else I’d rather be doing (unless the Milwaukee Brewers finally call and make me an offer to play professional baseball)!

A family-oriented individual myself (with two young boys and an incredible wife), they always find ways to both motivate and humor me.  An avid sports enthusiast who likely quotes 80’s and 90’s movies too much, I’m a big believer in work hard, play hard…And a good Wisconsin fish fry. 

Christina Stone
VP, Recruiting Solutions

I am a strong believer that an organizations success is linked directly to its workforce and for the past 15+ years I have had the privilege of helping organization's attract, hire and retain top talent so that both the individual and their business can reach their peak potential.  Since graduating with my BBA in Human Resource Management and Economics from UW-Milwaukee, I have worked with and supported organizations in a variety of industries from Medical Devices to Print Manufacturing to Pharmaceuticals & Clinical Research to Telecommunications.  With each organization I focused on a variety of HR needs including new hire and expatriate relocation assistance, project management, compliance and of course, talent acquisition.   This professional journey has allowed me to align great people with great organizations and the joy that I feel with each placement and each process optimization that I am apart of is why I love coming to work each day.

 

Of course, when the workday wraps up, I look forward to spending time with my husband and two beautiful daughters.  Cooking, traveling, boating and spending time with family and friends are just a few things that I enjoy and strive to find time for as much as possible.  A balanced life between a fulfilling career and a happy family keeps my batteries fully charged!

Sherry Farver
Talent Acquisition Specialist

As an industry expert with more than 20 years of successful experience in full life cycle recruiting and business development, I have the proven ability to foster relationships at all levels, including C-Suite and senior executives across multiple functional areas. My passion is in helping people to grow professionally while also providing organizations with top talent.

 

Offering both clients and candidates exceptional professional service, absolute confidentially, and the most ethical values in executive search, I have successfully completed hundreds of searches, helping professionals grow and advance in their careers. 

 

I know that people hire people, not resumes. Companies are not just looking for a set of qualifications that match a job description. To ensure a complete match, I extensively interview both companies and candidates to find out who they are and what they are looking for as companies and people.  I believe that vision and the ability to nurture relationships leads to long term solutions and success. I find it extremely rewarding to be a part of a successful match and make a difference in people’s lives!

 

When I am not engrossed in a book, my husband and I love to ride our motorcycles and spend time with our spoiled dogs, Vito and Sophie. Quality family time is an important part of our lives!

Brianna Gasper
Manager, Recruiting Solutions

Since graduating from Carroll University I have utilized my Communication, PR and business development knowledge to create and lead 2 different LLC’s, a Corporation and now a non-profit.  My years of business development experience within entrepreneurship as well as the non-profit sector excited me to bring my enthusiasm and energy to the Fusion team.  I enjoy creating long lasting, family like relationships with partners and spending time getting to know what businesses are needing most to continue meeting their goals while hopefully helping ease some stressors.  

 

In addition to my work with Fusion Recruiters, I am also co-owner of a non-profit organization called Elevate that executes family friendly, upbeat, community events in the suburbs of Milwaukee, WI.  Within Elevate we have raised over $200K for different charities and causes by providing run/walks, concerts, wellness events, family galas, and dance competitions.  My passion for helping others fuels me through each work day to do more, give more and help more people/organizations along the way!  With Fusion being such a charitable and service focused business and family oriented organization, I feel right at home and professionally charged in all that I do in both roles.  

 

Outside of work I have a great love for running, coffee, live music and spending time with my husband and 4 children.  We enjoy traveling and doing most anything outdoors in all of Wisconsin’s seasons.  Our family loves to live by the work hard, play hard motto in soaking up all the best in our time spent together!
