Sylvette Sawyers is Managing Director, Delivery & Execution for Audeliss, Inc. in the US. Sylvette and her team ensure that all talent-related client needs are met. She is passionate about elevating the contribution of this, often underutilized, function beyond peoples’ expectations. Having begun her career in executive search, Sylvette has a penchant for creative sourcing and is known for the deep relationships she cultivates and leverages to meet the needs of candidates, companies and clients. Sylvette works to ensure that recruiting is more than a transaction. Rather, it’s a complex set of dynamics that, simplified and managed in the right way, can give any business a competitive advantage.
Sylvette is originally from the UK and moved to Chicago, Illinois where she began her career in executive search working for a small retained executive search firm downtown. After leaving executive search, she spent the next few years working and living in India and China to centralize the graduate recruiting program for a well-known HR consulting company. Shortly thereafter, Sylvette moved to San Francisco, California to work for a leading specialty retailer to help the company bolster its leadership representation of people from underrepresented groups. She would make a couple of career moves before going back to this company with her role culminating in the Vice President, Global Talent Acquisition.
After Sylvette and her partner, Christina, made the decision to stay in the Bay Area, she spent two months on a yoga island, lived in Barcelona, consulted for a number of companies and then made a career transition to early-stage companies to help them build and scale teams. In her most recent start up role, Sylvette was the Vice President, Executive Talent Management.
She has a BA in Public Communication/ Human Relations and an MA in Communications.
