At the beginning of 2018, CohenTaylor welcomed Lindsay Polyak and Maggee Nelson to the team.

Lindsay Polyak brings 30 years of experience to the CohenTaylor team, spanning HR and organizational redesign, leadership development, change management and retained executive search.   She moved fulltime in the retained search space roughly 6 years ago and has spent the past 4 years leading the non-profit practice for a boutique consulting firm.  Her years of assessing the cultural components of organizations make her uniquely suited to understand quickly the culture and context of an organization and identify leaders who can excel in that culture.   Lindsay is an active member of the local Twin Cities community, serving on the Board of Governors for Opportunity International and the Global Missions Advisory Team for Christ Presbyterian Church. Additionally, she serves as an Executive Board member for the Hopkins Education Foundation and leads the HR committee for the TreeHouse Board of Directors.
