Cynnie graduated from Colby College and launched her career in sales inspired by David King’s lectures 30 years ago. She went on to sell for creative agencies, serving as Managing Partner of an international branding consultancy and business development executive for several other strategic branding and marketing communications firms. She was Vice President of an executive coaching, leadership development and organizational development consultancy, WJM Associates. As co-owner of CFW Careers she has come full circle and has the great joy of collaborating with her co-owner Rachel Fagnant-Fassler and a team of terrific women evolving and growing the firm.


Cynnie is also co-founder, along with Rachel Fagnant-Fassler and Maria Simon, of Changing the Conversation, passionately committed to continuing the work begun by David King when he founded the firm as Careers for Women in 1973.


Cynnie finds her bliss walking through Washington Square Park with her husband and their rescue Pug, Sally. 

"Careers for Women and David King introduced me to sales 30 years ago. It means so much to me to continue building this business— a firm with a great legacy and also a distinctive positioning: truly “executive search with a soul.” While the executive search industry has changed over the years, especially in the past seven years since I joined the firm, it’s thrilling to see that David’s original premise for the company has only become more significant: educating people to make smarter career choices. Together with our team of very talented career development professionals, we are making a difference and creating success stories for both candidates and clients."
