Hi, I’m April Platis

I’m the founder and CEO of Kipton Executive Search.

When you’re searching for high-caliber talent, you need a partner who gets to know your business, goals, and people-needs really well.

Plus, you need an industry insider with an established network of connections to draw from.

I help healthcare & financial services businesses and career professionals achieve their goals by connecting exceptional candidates with perfect-fit opportunities.

For businesses, that means finding and recruiting high-caliber candidates efficiently to set up your teams for growth.

Perhaps your internal recruitment team is inundated or doesn’t have the connections to fill high-level positions. Perhaps your role has been open for a while and you need a different approach to find candidates. Perhaps it’s a sensitive position and best handled by a third-party.

What kind of recruiter do you want to work with?

A true people-person, with established industry relationships who understands fast-growth operations and knows how to match talent with opportunity?
Someone who gets to know her candidates, their background and experience really well, and can match people with roles where they’ll thrive?
A professional with a creative and flexible approach to recruitment who is connected with the most highly-regarded firms and candidates?

Sounds like we could be a fit!

I work with April often to ensure we find appropriate staffing in different areas of the region I work. April is always on top of her game. She consistently communicates the status of a position being offered. She also contacts me as often as I request to ensure that I find the best person for the position I’m hiring. She is a great asset to my region and to our company!

I will honestly say that of the 1000+ national brand relationships I’ve had over my partnership marketing career, only a few rank as high as April when it comes to responsiveness and overall relationship follow-through. I highly recommend working with her.

April takes her job very seriously and is always willing to go that extra mile when necessary. April also has a great personality that lights up the room when she’s in it. Those two items alone are alone, two knock out combination needed in business today.

April was wonderful to work with during all of the recruitment efforts throughout my 5 years at Accretive Health. I was able to observe her build strong networking relationships with candidates and develop a robust college campus recruitment program with many universities across the country. She is organized and thorough in her efforts; her understanding of the business model reflects in the strong candidates she brings in.
