Charles Aris Inc. expanded its recruitment services once more with the promotion of Heather Porter to senior associate practice leader. In this role, she will focus on placing executive sales and marketing leaders in her industrial client organizations.
Prior to her promotion, Porter served as one of the executive search firm’s top recruiters, identifying and placing top talent across multiple functions in an array of industries. She quickly developed expertise in the firm’s Engineering & Operations recruiting practice, where she worked closely with Charles Aris senior vice president Greg Harper in the industrial space.
Porter joined Charles Aris Inc. in February 2014 with more than nine years of experience in sales, marketing and operations — including eight years as a director of operations for Cold Stone Creamery’s North Carolina and South Carolina territories.
“I am excited to continue to work with Heather in this new capacity,” said Harper. “Heather’s vast experience during her time with Charles Aris will no doubt lead to her success within our Sales & Marketing function in the industrial space.”
Heather, who earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration at Greensboro College, enjoys watching Alabama Crimson Tide football and spending time with her husband, Ben; their daughter, Genevieve; and their son, Reece.
