IRVINE, California, May 23, 2011 – McDermott & Bull, a Southern California-based retained executive search firm, announced today the appointment of Ms. Jami Brucher as Program Coordinator for the McDermott & Bull Executive Network.

Ms. Brucher will be instrumental in developing and delivering new and valuable programs to the Executive Network members that will significantly enhance their job search efforts while in transition. She will also assist the members in developing the right senior level executive relationships with their peers while in our working member program. Jami will be responsible for new growth in existing markets throughout Orange County, Los Angeles and the Bay area, as well as increasing awareness of the McDermott & Bull brand.

“We are excited to have Jami join the McDermott & Bull Executive Network at such an important time in its development” commented Rod McDermott, Managing Partner of McDermott & Bull Executive Search. “With the economy still straining to come out of a deep recession, senior executives are finding it challenging to land the right opportunity without having to relocate their families. The MB Executive Network plays a vital role in that process, and with Jami’s experience managing a program at Brandman with similar characteristics, we know she’ll be instrumental in developing new and worthwhile programs for us. Additionally, with the upcoming departure of Kelsey Richards, the MB Executive Network Program Coordinator for nearly 3 years, Jami will have big shoes to fill.”

Before joining McDermott & Bull, Ms. Brucher was the Program Manager in the Military & Veteran’s department at Brandman University, formerly Chapman University College, in Irvine, California.
