Carla Cimo

Carla Cimo - Principal, Sales Recruiting Practice

Carla@candm.com LinkedIn Profile

When I came to C & M 17 years ago, I came as a candidate seeking a senior marketing position. I never left. I was struck then, as I am now, by the commitment, integrity and uncanny ability that C & M has to listen and qualify both a client's and candidate's needs, subsequently leading to a successful marriage for both. We, as a company, are in relationships for the "long haul," which is why we continue to be extremely successful in a most challenging economic time.

Carla has 20 years' experience working with sales professionals. Prior to Curphey & Malkin, she held key marketing and sales positions at companies such as McDonnel Douglas, Cyma/McGraw Hill, and DEC. She has a BA from Simmons College and an MS from Boston University.

Deb Ryan

Deb Ryan - Principal - Sales Practice

Deb@candm.com LinkedIn Profile

When I came to Curphey & Malkin, I was looking for a change. I was looking for a company that was more personal. I came from a marketing environment in high-tech where I supported sales and planned all of the company events such as trade shows, conferences, and executive forums for lead generation. I wanted to put those skills and that knowledge into a role where I could help other people find their "dream jobs." I found it and I am proud to say that I am part of this team.

I enjoy assessing a company's culture and staffing needs to qualify candidates as well as evaluating the personality, environments and financial needs of the candidates; consequently, leading to a successful unity.

Deb Ryan has been recruiting for Curphey & Malkin for nearly four years. She focuses on inside sales as well as hybrid roles and junior sales positions. She brings solid corporate experience in marketing and sales for companies such as Cambridge Technology Partners, Informix Software, Ingres and Information Builders.
