The owner of Krae Consulting has joined Middletown-based Recruiting Caddies, a firm focused on finding mid-level professionals to high-level executives. 

Kristen Pucci joined Dane Fahnestock, founder of Recruiting Caddies, on Aug. 22. 

Combined, the two bring more than 10 years of experience in recruiting and executive searches., the two said. 

“The boutique-style of Recruiting Caddies is breaking the mold and pivoting around the overhead and inefficiencies of traditional-style recruiting shops to deliver a highly personalized and results-driven experience for businesses seeking top-tier talent,” Pucci and Fahnestock said in a press release.  

Fahnestock, 39,  has over 15 years of experience in construction and related industries. As the CEO of Recruiting Caddies, he leads a team of six professional recruiters and staff who have served a broad range of organizations and industries including construction, architecture, engineering, manufacturing, and transportation. 

“Recruiting Caddies was founded to offer a blend of HR and operational consulting that allows our placed candidates the best chance of thriving with their new employer for years to come,” said Fahnestock. “Now with Kisten’s added expertise and network, we are poised to elevate our reach and impact to become the region’s premier talent acquisition firm.” 

Pucci, 30,  remains the CEO of KRAE Consulting, a business and marketing consulting and management firm based out of Mechanicsburg. As the newly named co-owner of Recruiting Caddies, she provides input and oversight on the vision and growth of the organization.  

“As a former professional recruiter, I experienced the unique demands and struggles of the architectural, engineering, and construction industries when it comes to attracting and retaining talent. Through Recruiting Caddies, we are blazing a better approach to recruiting that is efficient, intuitive, and highly successful,” said Pucci. “I’m thrilled to partner with Dane and am confident our innovative approach and commitment to personalized service will be the differentiator that drives success for Recruiting Caddies and the companies we serve.”
