ZRG launches cybersecurity and defense/intelligence practice with two senior hires

ZRG 112ZRG Partners, a global executive search and talent management firm with headquarters in West Orange, NJ, announced on May 26 that ZRG has expanded their capabilities with the addition of two experienced executive search consultants, Stephen Spagnuolo and Phoebe Henderson, who will broaden the firm’s existing footprint across the Government, Security and Cybersecurity spaces.

Stephen Spagnuolo comes to ZRG with an extensive operational and consulting background. A graduate of the US Naval Academy, Stephen served with distinction as a US Marine Corps infantry officer, deploying to multiple overseas contingencies. He transitioned to executive search with Russell Reynolds Global Banking and Markets Practice. Most recently, he founded SASearch Advisors, with the aim of deploying his extensive network across the Wall Street and National Security communities to help bridge the wide disconnectedness of emerging cybersecurity trends. He will split time working out of ZRG’s Metro New York and Washington DC offices.

Also joining the practice is Phoebe Henderson. Phoebe enjoys wide connectivity within the twin sectors of Cybersecurity and Government, which is enhanced by her niche expertise among the C4ISR, Geo-Spatial and Satellite verticals. With over a decade of executive search experience, Phoebe has successfully led and executed dozens of senior level searches across the Federal, Technology (IT, Hardware, Software, Solutions), Healthcare, Aerospace & Defense, Intelligence, Satellite, Geo-Spatial and Construction/Engineering markets for public, private, and private equity backed companies, located along the Washington DC – northern Virginia corridor. Her success comes from an intense client focus and balanced, well-honed candidate assessment skills. Phoebe will be based in ZRG’s Washington DC office.

Larry Hartmann, CEO of ZRG Partners commented, “Cybersecurity is a prevailing strategic priority for most/all of our clients, whether their domain is financial services or consumer/retail or private equity backed manufacturing. We at ZRG are thrilled and emboldened to be positioned at the tip of the spear in advising corporate management teams and their boards on the right talent solutions to develop and enhance robust capabilities along the continuum of defensive and offensive cyber initiatives. The expansion of our team to service government contractor and commercial cybersecurity talent advisory engagements comes at a critical moment for our nation, and the entire team at ZRG is proud to play an important part in driving leadership excellence to this market.”
