Managing Partner

Anya is an excellent match for the Lucas Group, a Korn Ferry company culture. 

Anya is professional, engaged, well-connected, and highly consultative. She approaches each relationship—whether client or candidate—as a dynamic partnership that extends well beyond a single placement. She cares deeply about the professional and personal impacts of each search and maintains close connections with those with whom she has worked over time to ensure that the matches last.

Anya personifies Lucas Group. She is dedicated to proving that a quality executive recruiter is far more than a company vendor or a candidate assistant. She is a partner with companies and people who retain her services. To prove the value of her partnership, she is a relentless researcher and consistently exceeds expectations. Anya welcomes requirements but goes far beyond them when looking for the right person for the right career opportunity.

Her Chicago location places her in a vibrant accounting and finance market and Anya seeks in-person meetings and interviews to move far beyond a voice on the phone or the profile in social media to truly understand client needs and candidate aspirations. Every step of the way, she employs a very candid and consultative approach to ensure that she sets appropriate expectations and provides solid advice. Her partnership approach works within Lucas Group as well. For each opportunity, Anya engages her A&F contract colleagues for perspective and counsel and taps the Lucas Group diverse network of candidates to find the ideal candidate.

A graduate of the University of Arizona’s Eller College of Business, Anya has worked in recruiting for more than six years. Especially as companies employ short-term contract assignments to consider longer-term placement, she relishes the challenges of matching the right person with a great opportunity.
