Along with the excitement of the holiday season, comes more positive news for the Stoltenberg team as senior recruiter Davida Shear recently joined the company.
“In the short time that I have been at Stoltenberg, I’ve truly enjoyed everyone that I am working with on the recruiting and business development teams,” Davida said. “In my role, there is also tremendous diversity in each candidate search, which makes it very interesting.”
Davida joined Stoltenberg Consulting in November, bringing with her several years of healthcare IT executive recruiting experience. Her most recent role prior to Stoltenberg was with a boutique-retained firm that specializes in identifying healthcare IT leadership talent. Davida’s earlier related experience was with the healthcare IT and Informatics practice of a recruiting firm.
Davida holds a BA in economics from Columbia University and a MBA in finance from Harvard Business School.
Prior to transitioning into healthcare IT and executive recruiting, Davida had a long-term career in television, specifically leading sales, marketing and business development activities for a variety of cable television networks, ranging from HBO, to international channels, to music and sports networks. She also co-founded a couple of entrepreneurial ventures in Umbria, Italy with her late husband, including a food import business and a hotel/restaurant, and her daughter Allegra, who is now 21, was actually born in Italy.
During the same time she joined the Stoltenberg team, Davida moved from her home in Nashville, Tennessee to Louisville, Kentucky. She now lives with her partner Mike, who runs a family business in the Louisville area, and her dog Georgia, a dachshund-beagle mix.
Davida loves speaking Italian any opportunity that she gets, as well as cooking and eating Italian food. Her other non-professional passions include NFL football, hot yoga and running.
As we move toward the close of 2014, Davida said, “I like the entrepreneurial spirit and feel that there are huge growth opportunities ahead with Stoltenberg.”
