John Almond founded Almond & Associates in 1972 as an executive placement firm. His ability to understand the intangibles of organizations and identify their needs soon led to Almond & Associates’ success and reputation as a leader in the field of executive search and professional office placement. Then in 1999, Pete Almond, his son, joined the firm and continued the tradition of excellence and success in executive and mid-level direct hire placement that Almond & Associates has always been known for.
He passed the baton in 2022 to seasoned Almond and Associate’s recruiter, Zada Grant, who is responsible for the Puget Sound business. Zada’s extensive background working in a variety of industries gives her an edge in determining her client’s needs. She is passionate about customer service and helping clients find the right talent whatever their recruiting needs. Her goal is to build solid relationships with our clients and candidates to ensure she can deliver an excellent experience.
