OUR STORY

Carla and Leslie met at a global finance and accounting recruiting firm 18 years ago where they instantly connected through their shared passion for helping people. Leslie was approached by a competing firm to start a new location in the Louisville market and instantly knew Carla would be her partner in crime. Carla and Leslie moved on to other opportunities to gain experience in Corporate Recruiting, Executive Search, Consulting, IT and Healthcare. Both felt something was missing and realized their passion lies in helping transform organizations by providing services related to people strategy. Therefore, Carla and Leslie connected for a third time to create Bluegrass Talent Group.

We can help.

Our passion is to connect people to companies that are in alignment with their purpose. We believe that when people follow their passion they will make a better tomorrow. Through our non-traditional recruiting methods, we help discover prospective candidates you may not find on your own. Some, who at first, may not appear to be the perfect match, but our holistic view of the talent market allows you to see what you need even before you know you need it.

TESTIMONIALS


“Leslie Goldhill at Bluegrass Talent is a pleasure to work with. She is sensitive to the needs of the clients and communicates through the entire process. Our company recently used Leslie for the first time and we were so pleased with the results, we immediately gave her another assignment.”

Kelly L. Goldman – Director of Human Resources, Turning Point Brands, Inc., National Tobacco Company, L.P.



“Carla McKinney is hands down the best recruiter I have ever worked with. She doesn't just send someone that meets the qualifications, she gets to know your company and makes sure the person she is recommending is a good fit with you and your organization. She actually talked me into hiring someone that I would never have looked at, and she was right!”

Elaine Bush – Chief Financial Officer, Justice AV Solutions



“Working with Bluegrass Talent could not have been a better experience. Leslie and Carla are very knowledgeable in Finance and Accounting and took the time to fully understand our need. They only presented qualified candidates and I felt they truly wanted to place the right person and not just close a deal. We are looking forward to working with Bluegrass Talent for our future placement needs.”

Will Baumgardner – Chief of Staff, Venture First



Carla McKinney has been a strategic partner and friend of our firm for over 15 years. Carla was instrumental in recruiting some of our top talent including two of our partners. She is engaging, trustworthy and dependable and has a wealth of experience in the accounting and finance field so able to assist people at all levels. Her professional approach is only matched by her innovation and ingenuity. The close rapport she holds with our firm and her other clients makes her an extremely valuable point of contact. I highly recommend Carla and her associates for your top talent needs.
