Meet the Talent Leader Helping The Org Scale: Ingrid Pappalardo
Ingrid Pappalardo is the newest addition to our talent acquisition team, joining us as the Director of Talent. In her role, she will be responsible for building a top-notch talent acquisition apparatus to help The Org find talent in nontraditional and equitable ways. “My career started 8 years ago when I asked myself, ‘what can I do with my psychology degree, other than sitting across from a patient on a couch?’” Ingrid recalled. “I decided to apply psychology theories to the corporate world, and started in very buttoned-up financial services and renewable energy spaces. Since then, I have been cracking the world of VC and startups for some time now and there is no looking back!” Outside of work, Ingrid is a full-time dog mom to the large and fluffy Samba, who has already made herself at home in our Soho office. In addition, Ingrid also loves pottery, learning new languages (French is her current pursuit), NOT cooking and finding the next best whiskey bar in the city. Although Ingrid currently resides in Brooklyn, she has no shortage of past homes under her belt. She was born and raised in Cuba, but spent a large chunk of her childhood and young adulthood years in Jamaica and later, Panama. Before moving to Brooklyn with her husband, Ingrid lived on the Upper East Side. “I am excited to work at The Org because we are building a product for people like you and me. At one point in our lives, we have all been looking for the next best move in our careers and want to do so responsibly. The Org allows us to do that while leveling the playing field between employers and candidates through transparency.” We can’t wait for Ingrid to apply her well-rounded cultural background and experience in psychology to our people team as we continue to grow!
