WALTHAM, Mass., May 18, 2020 – The Bowdoin Group, an executive search firm with deep expertise in leadership search and strategic build-outs for companies across the Innovation Economy, announced the expansion of their team with two new strategic hires, including the appointment of Terri Ryan as the new Vice President of Finance.

Terri brings a strong finance background to The Bowdoin Group and experience in building and managing companies in high growth environments with increasing levels of complexity. She has over 25 years of experience leading finance organizations and overseeing strategic financial operations, reporting, analysis and planning, and administration. Most recently, Terri served as the Vice President of Finance and Administration at NetNumber, Inc., where she oversaw and led their finance, accounting and HR teams, and partnered closely with the management team to provide strategic analysis for making better business decisions. 

“We are delighted to bring Terri onboard as we continue to strengthen our FP&A and Administration functions at The Bowdoin Group. She is a great addition to the team and will support our strategic vision across the board,” said Scott Aldsworth, President at The Bowdoin Group.

When asked about her new role as VP of Finance, Terri stated, “The Bowdoin Group is such a recognized name in the search industry. Their reputation precedes them across the Greater Boston Area, and it’s an honor to join such a well-regarded and mission-driven firm. I am looking forward to working closely with the management team as the company continues to grow.”

The firm also welcomes Travis DeMar as a Senior Consultant to the team. Travis brings years of relationship-building and management experience to The Bowdoin Group, most recently serving as a Talent Acquisition Consultant for Pegasystems, and before that, a recruiter for WinterWyman’s executive search business, where he was responsible for candidate engagement and client relationships. Before entering the talent acquisition industry, Travis spent 10 years in higher education.

“We are excited to welcome Travis to the team,” said Kara Barr, Vice President of Delivery at the firm. “Our delivery mechanism is built on a strong foundation of both recruiting and research, and we know Travis will be a strong addition in bringing the best possible service to our clients.”

The Bowdoin Group looks forward to continued growth across the core vertical markets it serves—BioPharma, Digital Health, and Technology—with the experience and expertise that both Terri and Travis bring to the firm.
