Odgers Berndtson Names Amy Orlich Partner to Lead CIO/CTO Practice in New York

Odgers Berndtson, one of the world's top executive search and organizational leadership firms, today announced that Amy Orlich joined the firm as a Partner to lead its CIO/CTO and Financial Technology practices in New York, effective immediately.

With nearly two decades of experience helping organizations identify, recruit and retain technology professionals with the right competencies, experiences and vision to help deliver on her clients' corporate goals, Orlich will focus on domestic and global searches for C-Suite executives, as well as corporate and divisional CIOs, CTOs, and leaders in architecture, applications development, infrastructure and information security across a broad spectrum of industries. Additionally, Orlich recruits leaders in digital delivery, big data and analytics as well as cloud services. She reports to Steve Potter, managing partner for Odgers Berndtson's U.S. operations.

Orlich has extensive experience within the Financial Services infrastructure space in particular, which she will leverage to launch a specialized New York-based Financial Technology (or "FinTech") practice to work exclusively with asset management, capital markets, hedge funds, retail and commercial banking, and insurance clients, as well as the vast array of technology service providers that provide the enabling technologies that drive innovation at financial companies.

"Amy is exceptionally adept at helping organizations understand their technology leadership gaps, both in terms of their immediate needs and their long-term business goals, and then helping them to identify candidates with the appropriate core competencies, business acumen, and leadership qualities to close those gaps," said Potter.

He continued: "With the financial services sector in particular coming under heightened regulatory scrutiny, we are well advantaged to have Amy on board. The depth and breadth of her FinTech sector knowledge, talent assessment skills, and vast relationships with today's leading innovators and most respected visionaries will be instrumental in the successful growth of our new practice serving this sector."

Prior to joining Odgers Berndtson, Orlich was a Partner at CTPartners, where she primarily focused on technology and operations searches within the financial services sector; she held a similar role earlier in her career within Spencer Stuart’s operations and technology team. Amy's career has steadfastly focused on talent acquisition and recruitment, having started her career in corporate technology recruiting at Gartner and Deloitte Consulting.

Orlich is a graduate of Union College in Schenectady, NY.
