It Takes One To Know One
Linda Orton, Founder and Chief Unicorn Hunter
This unicorn is a passionate recruiter, effective consultant, motivating speaker, caring connector, influential legal marketer, award winning New York Marketing Thought Leader, author, nature photographer, hiker and kayaker, stand-up comedian, Moth Storyteller, loving Mom, encouraging friend and coach, and former University of Chicago Ultimate Frisbee player.
In recent years, we’ve focused on the Video, Social and Digital side of marketing. We’ve worked with professional services firms and companies helping them communicate their stories through powerful video and creative words. We’ve consulted with the leading Social Agencies in the professional services space, helping them carve out their niche and we’ve advised thousands of candidates on job and career changes.
In 1997, long before social media, Linda founded Intelligent Marketing Solutions, Inc. where she and her team recruited marketing, management, finance, and technology professionals and placed hundreds of people in professional services firms and companies across the United States and Europe. Linda also provided Marketing Needs Assessments, evaluated teams and consulted to a wide range of clients.
Linda’s in-house career was spent creating and running marketing programs for leading law firms in NY and London. Prior to marketing she was also in-house in Research, Recruitment and in Litigation Management. She worked in-house for Wachtell Lipton Rosen & Katz, Davis Polk, Proskauer, Brown & Wood and Clifford Chance. She graduated from the University of Chicago in 1987.
The market needs our unique perspective, honest and direct approach. And if we don’t know an answer, we won’t fudge it. We’ll go and do the research before we share views with our clients or candidates. That is rare in this space; just like the Unicorns.
