Courtney Keene  joined the Grapevine team in October, 2012.  She recruits sales and management talent on a nationwide basis and works with clients in a variety of industries.  Courtney is a transplant from Atlanta, GA to Excelsior, MN.  She moved from Alabama to Atlanta upon graduation from college and started her outside sales career.  Four years of B2B sales experience and two years of Insurance sales background gave Courtney an ideal foundation to transition into sales recruiting.

Two words that best describe Courtney’s professional recruiting style would be; straightforward and honest. She enjoys the challenge of finding top notch, passive candidates through cold calling and warm referrals. This approach is most effective in finding highly qualified, long-term hires.  She combines her knowledge and experience in sales with a strong passion and sense of urgency for her clients. Her desire to match the right person to the culture, core values, and beliefs of her clients has enabled her to maintain an extremely high level of client satisfaction. Her ability to effectively listen helps her in exceeding her clients and candidates expectations.

Courtney graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology and a Minor in Human Development & Family Studies.  Originally from the Gulf Coast of Mobile, AL, the snowy North has been quite the adjustment. In her spare time Courtney enjoys college football, traveling, as well as the south Alabama and south Florida beaches. War Eagle!
