Sandrene “Sandy” Ryan
Senior Director of Recruiting
Sandrene “Sandy” Ryan was born a natural recruiter, although she took a circuitous route from the tiny island of Montserrat through the U.S. Army to become one officially. A global citizen and world traveler, Sandy loves all types of people and all kinds of cuisines. She sees and appreciates the good in others, seeking common ground and shared interests with all she encounters.
Her name in legal recruiting is rock-star status; her reputation is golden as well. Sandy is one of very few recruiters who take the time to help candidates improve their resume, skills, and experience — even if it means recommending them to other recruiters for other positions when necessary for the candidate to thrive.
Although she has tremendous responsibilities to staff projects quickly and often at the last minute, Sandy doesn’t make short-term decisions without understanding how they will affect the company’s overall strategy and goals. She has a strong learner’s mindset, continually challenging her mind to grow and work to improve. She has built recruiting divisions for gigantic legal tech companies, systematically implementing technology, processes, and people without much additional help. Sandy doesn’t believe in “I can’t.”
When she is not in London with close family or back home in her native Montserrat, Sandy still makes the US East Coast home, often opening her home to guests to enjoy Montserrat’s national dish: Goat Water. Don’t knock it til you try it.
