Imagine: you’re adventurous, athletic, charismatic and empathetic. Your ability to attract and assess talented people comes from a mix of rigorous training and pure enthusiasm. You absorb positive influences effortlessly. You never stay in one place, but if you did, that place would be, vaguely, Europe. Your taste is innate; your work ethic as impeccable as your manners. When free time presents itself, your agent books you a modeling gig. Life is lived fully and philosophically. You are Bastien Leveau. 

Julienne works in executive search because it’s a direct way to improve peoples’ lives. She’s inspired by candidates who are curious and driven, and believes that abundance and prosperity are attainable for those who believe in themselves and do the work.

And like most high performers, Julienne seeks balance through multiple talents and pursuits: songwriting, screenwriting, performing, and a thirst for knowledge that plays directly into her recruiting superpowers.

When the Intro team was first assembled, a theory was fabricated that perhaps the perfect employee would be an agency project manager. Hyper organization would be a given. Speaks design language. Client facing. People skills. Alyssa proved that theory, but those were just table stakes. She added airplane pilot, chef, and expert in the field of personality types. The first four hours of her day would make your entire week jealous. When one’s job is to attract interesting people, there's no substitute for being an interesting person.
