HEAD OF RESEARCH
COMMUNICATION CONSULTANT AND PR
The experience of our Partners is at your disposal for the search and recruiting of profiles in the Fashion, Luxury, Design, Retail and Digital world.
With the benefit of many years of experience in Research and Selection of Executive and Middle Management profiles in the Fashion, Design, Luxury and Consumer Goods sectors, in February 2014 Rodgy founded the company that bears her name. She started out as a Fashion and Designers Head Hunter, keeping a watchful eye on the evolution of the Digital, Retail and Consumer Goods markets.
She obtained an MBA from Hartford University (CT, USA) and developed her career in some of the most important Executive Search companies in Italy and abroad – including Egon Zehnder, Korn Ferry and TMP Executive Search – in the Fashion, Design, Luxury and Consumer Goods sectors. In the role of Head of the Placement Office at the prestigious Istituto Marangoni in Milan, she came into direct contact with the world of Style and Product, thus expanding her already considerable knowledge of the sector. By applying her proven experience and cosmopolitan background to the Executive Search method, she is able to find talented professionals both in Italy and across Europe.
A graduate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Padua, Jacqueline began her professional career in 1992 as a Head Hunter in Moda Research.
After gaining experience in a generalist recruiting company, where she had the opportunity to improve her knowledge of the pharmaceutical and IT sectors and services, she decided to move into a corporate role. She joined Giorgio Armani Spa in 2001, and remained there until 2014, in the role of Head of Recruiting. Reporting directly to the WW Human Resources Director, she worked closely with company management, coordinating research and selection projects for all the key figures of the Milan HQ and the main branches around the world.
In 2015, Jacqueline chose to go freelance, returning to Head Hunting to focus on Executive and Middle Management profiles, and pursuing two of her main interests: coaching and teaching. She obtained the Humanistic Coaching Diploma from the Incoaching School and at the same time dedicated herself to teaching at the Istituto Marangoni in Milan for classes in English.
Since January 2016 she has been a Partner at Rodgy Guerrera and Partners.
Francesca graduated from Bocconi University in 1997 in Business Administration, and began working for the Prada Group in the same year. She remained there until 2002, working in management control, consolidated financial statements, acquisitions and operations both in Italy and abroad.
From 2003, she participated in the start-up of Capucci as Licensing-Legal Manager, before joining Studio Tributario Deiure in 2005, where she dealt with contracts and corporate and tax opinions, as well as special projects for multinational and national groups.
Thanks to the confidence and experience gained at Studio Deiure, she was appointed Statutory Auditor and Auditor of various important Italian companies.
Since 2010, she has worked as a consultant for companies in the Fashion and Luxury sector, involved primarily in projects focusing on Controlling and Operations.
Curious about all that is new, including new generations, she accompanies innovative start-ups as a mentor, working with important innovation hubs.
She began her Head Hunting career in April 2015 as a Partner in Rodgy Guerrera and Partners
