about cathy mcguinness

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Catherine graduated with a BA in English Literature from Fordham College.  Building a career in executive recruiting from London to New York and ultimately Austin, TX, her work experience spans global executive search firm Heidrick & Struggles and F50 company Dell Inc.  Catherine’s New York City roots coupled with her corporate human resources background offer a unique perspective through which to view the decisions that drive executive hires and fires, captured succinctly in the satire, Emperors' Clothes. Catherine currently resides in Austin, TX with her  husband, daughter and two dogs.  She remains active in executive recruiting through her partnership with the boutique executive search firm, Preod Corporation.  And, she's encouraging Emperors' Clothes character Sal Scruci's leadership attributes in her second novel, The Juice.
