CommsCollectiv Introduces Fractional Model For Hiring Elite Communications Talent

NEW JERSEY, November 14, 2023 – In an industry-first move, CommsCollectiv has officially announced the launch of their new fractional employment model for senior-level communications professionals.  This innovative firm offers employers – from private equity and VC firms to startups and established businesses – access to senior-level communications expertise without the commitment or expense of a full-time hire. Founded by five partners with impressive networks and reputations in communications and executive search: Eric Kraus, Jane Randel, Lisa Ryan, Monica Talan, and Charlene Wheeless, CommsCollectiv promises clients access to experienced professionals with diverse backgrounds and extensive industry knowledge. 

The power of the company’s value proposition is the collective might of its founders who have built an unparalleled network of senior communications leaders available to take on bespoke assignments across a broad customer base.

“It’s an exhilarating time for us. We’ve all witnessed firsthand the transformative power of effective communications. We’re eager to share our expertise and bridge a glaring gap in the industry,” said Wheeless. “It’s high time businesses had a senior-level talent solution without the traditional constraints. CommsCollectiv is that solution.”
