Devon Underwood

Founder and Lead Strategist at The Talent Store

Devon Underwood started The Talent Store after recognizing that recruiting firms and HR consultants are operating the same way they have for 20+ years.  This is despite the fact that the talent landscape has completely changed in the last 10 years.  She has shifted pricing, service options and delivery, and built a firm that is a true partner in acquiring and retaining top talent.  In every piece of service provided, the goal is to help clients discover the people and processes that allow them to grow and meet their strategic initiatives.

She knows the technology and best practices available to help companies scale successfully and can develop and implement custom talent attraction, acquisition and retention strategies.  She can also help flesh out leadership and key position needs and do the work to discover top candidates.  All of this is done with a focus on each companies unique “personality”, culture and skills needs.

Devon has provided Executive Search, Recruiting and Talent Acquisition strategy consulting for clients in 40+ states for the last 15 years.  She has built, trained and developed recruitment teams and played a key role in employment branding.  She is an expert in analyzing current practices and shaping systems and solutions customized for each company’s culture, current processes and resource capacity.
