Why Artemis

Executive Search Capabilities

Artemis specializes in creating value for private equity and debt investors through human capital. When you need talented leaders with the intelligence and proven experience to drive results, we know where to find them and how to strategically position your opportunity in the market.

No BS.

We’re highly selective, and we don't believe in wasting anyone’s time or money. If we're not completely confident we can find the right candidate for you, we won't accept your search. And once your search is underway, we’ll present transformative leaders with the experience and emotional intelligence required to drive a successful exit.

Concierge-level Service

Keeping our client portfolio smaller and purposefully selective allows us to conduct highly tailored and efficient searches. By hand selecting our clients and applying that same diligence to finding candidates, we’re able to match you with executives who are inspired and prepared to propel your organization forward.

Private Equity Experience

At Artemis, we are human capital experts who are 100% focused on working with private equity sponsors. We know what works when seeking and attracting top-tier talent, and our consultative approach yields the best possible results for your search. You won’t find the same level of industry savvy, sense of urgency, or intellect anywhere else.



You’re in the business of multiplying capital, and so are we.

We have the industry background and insights necessary to strategically position your firm and career opportunity, giving you direct access to the most highly sought-after candidates.

Artemis’ approach also expertly aligns executive background and organizational fit to match your business with professionals who have a track record of success in fast-paced environments. 

Once we’re up to speed on your business operations, competitive landscape, and areas of opportunity, we’ll work quickly and efficiently to identify top notch leaders you’ll be excited to hire and have on your team.

After spending fifteen years at mid-sized and global executive search firms, Tara launched Artemis in 2021 with two things in mind — client experience and results.

She credits two things for her success: transparency and saying “no” more often than “yes.” Tara won’t put her reputation on the line for just anyone, and her no nonsense, direct approach instills deep confidence in her ability to achieve her clients’ objectives. By being highly selective about her partners, Tara ensures that she  represents only the best candidates and opportunities in the market.

It’s unlikely you’ll find a smarter recruiter or one with a greater sense of urgency than Tara. She studies the market and its players voraciously, and will learn the key drivers of your business — and the competitive landscape — with remarkable speed.

Tara holds a bachelor’s degree in accountancy from the University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign and began her career as an analyst for Merrill Lynch before transitioning to executive search in 2007. Her entire career has been focused on the financial services industry, giving Tara the ability to understand your portfolio, goals, and strategy at great depth.
