PITTSBURGH, PA. – Industrial Search Partners (ISP) announced today that Sarah Stewart has joined ISP as a Director for its new Pittsburgh office. Sarah has over 25 years of executive recruiting experience, with firms such as Spencer Stuart and Boyden, where she conducted executive and board-level search engagements for companies in a broad range of industries.

Sarah has managed selected recruiting assignments for Board Directors, CEOs and other operating executives, CFOs, CIOs, and senior human resources, investor relations and corporate communications executives.
