About Us

Executive Search.png

HR Connections was started by Debbie Barr Shapiro in 1993 to provide experienced service in the Human Resources executive and professional HR staffing market. Our motto, “we match the best HR people with the best HR jobs” was adopted based on feedback we received from our clients and our candidates regarding our service.

Prior to starting HR Connections 30 years ago, Debbie spent 12 years as an HR professional with PepsiCo and Texas Instruments. Debbie holds a Master’s degree in Human Resources and Labor Relations from Michigan State University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Resources and Marketing from Michigan State’s Broad School of Business. This experience and education provide her with a clear understanding of the critical success factors within the HR function. This has been a competitive advantage over many other recruiters who do not understand Human Resources today.

Jaclyn Shapiro, Vice President and Executive Search Specialist, has a solid foundation as an educator that brings a unique prospective to the realm of HR, pairing an understanding of people and leadership dynamics with a commitment to strategic talent acquisition. In her recent years within the executive HR search domain, she has successfully managed searches across diverse industries, cultivating a robust network of professionals and organizations. She thrives on the challenge of finding the perfect match between executive talent and companies seeking transformative leadership. Jaclyn’s commitment to fostering strategic partnerships, coupled with her dedication to continuous learning, positions her as a valuable assess in the ever-evolving landscape of executive HR Search.

HR Connections is a service-driven business looking forward to servicing your needs.
