About Us

Meet Our President

Cindy Laughlin began her career in the recruitment industry over 30 years ago as an executive recruiter for a search firm specializing in retail.  In 1993, she acquired ownership and has since built Recruiting Specialists into one of the nation’s leading talent acquisition firms.

Cindy has attracted and developed some of the recruiting industry’s top producers, in large part by instilling in her staff the value of developing strong client relationships while maintaining strict ethical standards.

She also is recognized as one of the experts in her field, serving on the Board of Directors for the Massachusetts Association of Personnel Services (MAPS).  Keeping ideas fresh and the mind stimulated is another key component to continued success, which is why Cindy maintains her role as Education Chairperson for the organization. She also earned the designation of Certified Personnel Consultant (CPC) from the National Association of Personnel Services (NAPS).

Outside of her business, Cindy believes in staying active in the community.  She has served on the Board of Trustees for the Providence Performing Arts Center since 2003 and as President for Justice Assistance, a non-profit organization that participates in the administration of justice as an advocate for both crime victims and offenders through victim services and offender rehabilitation programs.
