About Us

The Melanie Andersen Agency is an executive search firm that specializes in identifying talent for innovative and creative industries. The company  was launched in 2009 to bring a higher level of service to the recruiting process, and to provide expert advice on how to attract and retain top talent. We work with a variety of agencies, start-ups, entrepreneurial companies and established brands with an emphasis in the fashion, retail, beauty, design and technology industries.

We offer a highly personalized and strategic consultative approach, and both clients and candidates can feel confident that The Melanie Andersen Agency will provide a thoughtful and effective solution. Each of our Search Consultants specializes in identifying talent from industries that they have previous experience working within. Therefore, our point of difference is  that we are able to recognize the details of a role and provide recommendations to match the specific business needs of each client.

We believe in building long-term relationships and our approach is tailored to the needs and objectives of both our clients and candidates. We realize how important it is to make the effort to truly understand the culture of a company and the career aspirations of our candidates. A successful placement requires far more than a resume or a staffing plan as it necessitates the successful combination of the personalities involved in a company’s culture. This approach establishes a standard that sets us apart from our competitors.

The Melanie Andersen Agency is headquartered in New York and we undertake searches globally.



The Melanie Andersen Agency provides business and creative talent to innovative industries. Due to our multidisciplinary approach and past successes, our clients brief us on unique and interesting opportunities requiring a range of experience.
