NEW YORK (February 1, 2021) – Jobplex Inc. is pleased to announce that Agathe Lerolle has joined the firm as Managing Partner in the Retail Practice group. She will be based out of the firm’s New York office.
With more than 15 years of experience as a practitioner, she is exceptionally proficient at recruiting executives at both the emerging level and c-level for global companies. With extensive knowledge of fashion & luxury brands, Lerolle has partnered with many of the most recognizable global brands.
As a leading expert on executive recruitment, talent marketing and sourcing, Lerolle has conducted over 5,000 interviews throughout her career. Leading development of long-standing partnerships with companies in the luxury retail industry, she is highly aware of the intricacies of the fashion and beauty sectors and has been relied on as a trusted advisor in the industry for years.
Her unique understanding of these intricacies has enabled her to see areas of opportunity in leadership roles. She prides herself on focusing on the cultural needs of European organizations that do business in the United States. “There’s a need for leaders to be ‘bi-cultural’ and to have a deep understanding of the similarities, and most importantly, differences,” said Lerolle. “I’m excited for my new role at Jobplex, as it will enable me to better serve my clients, ensuring their leadership has the crucial cultural understanding that will push companies to excel and grow to their fullest potential.”
Prior to joining Jobplex, Lerolle founded Sur Mesure Executive Search, a boutique recruitment firm specializing in the Fashion, Luxury, and Retail Industries. Prior to founding Sur Mesure, she was a Director at K&J Executive Search and a Principal at Sterling International. Lerolle began her career as a Client Relationship Manager with JPMorgan in Paris.
“I am excited to welcome in a seasoned professional like Agathe who brings strength and depth to our Retail practice, especially with fashion & luxury brands, throughout North America and Europe,” said Jobplex President Justin Hirsch. “We have no doubt she will hit the ground running.”
Lerolle obtained a B.A. in Finance from the European Business School in Paris. She is fluent in French, English, Spanish and hopefully soon, Italian.‹‹ Back to the Press Room
