Gabrielle Christman Recognized as Progressive Entrepreneur by Smart Business Magazine


(Avon, Ohio), June 21, 2022 – President & CEO of Hunter International Recruiting, Gabrielle Christman, will be recognized as one of the region’s three “Progressive Entrepreneurs” by Smart Business Magazine at the 2022 Smart Women Awards Breakfast on June 23. The program will address today’s issues facing women in the workplace and recognize the achievements of leading businesswomen, inspiring male advocates and effective advancement programs through the Smart Women Awards program.

The awards program will be held at the Westin Cleveland Downtown from 8:00 am – 10:30 am. In addition to the “Progressive Entrepreneur” awards, the program will honor advancing women in business, forward-thinking organizations and other individuals positively impacting the community.

The “Progressive Entrepreneur” award recognizes female entrepreneurs who have either founded or co-founded a for-profit business that has achieved substantial growth within the last two years due to an innovative product or service.

“I am honored to be recognized at the Smart Women Awards alongside this exceptional group of leaders within our community,” said Christman. “Over the last 16 years, we’ve seen Hunter grow into a national staffing leader capable of supporting numerous Fortune 500 corporations with their high-level scientific and engineering talent.” Hunter’s success hasn’t halted over the years, as Christman looks forward to the future, “We are excited about the current construction of our new corporate campus in Avon which will include immense employee offerings and a state-of-the-art recruiting facility.”

In addition to Hunter’s new corporate headquarters, Christman has also been working on a new affiliate to Hunter Recruiting, STEMHUNTER. After over a decade of helping top corporations hire top STEM talent and hearing the frustrations from STEM professionals about how they search for work differently, Christman realized there had to be a better way. Earlier this year, she launched STEMHUNTER, a job board built specifically for STEM talent and innovative corporations. STEMHUNTER’s unique features were built to change the way that scientific and technical talent search for relevant, meaningful work.

This year, Christman will chair the American Heart Association’s STEM Goes Red For Girls event in Northeast Ohio, which encourages young women in the community to consider pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The event includes interactive activities and provides the attendees with the opportunity to meet role models in STEM fields. She looks forward to continuing to impact the community as Hunter International Recruiting and STEMHUNTER continue to grow.
