The principals at KTA are from different backgrounds, and have completely different styles. But as a group we are a formidable combination.
Karen Tripi, President
Karen is the founder and President of Karen Tripi Associates. Prior to starting the company 24 years ago, Karen had over 15 years of industry experience, working on both the client and agency sides with such companies as Young & Rubicam, Benton & Bowles, and Western Union. Throughout her career, she was always known as an excellent marketer and someone who was able to spot top talent. More than a few of the people she hired in her earlier years are today’s industry leaders.
Karen has the unique ability to listen to your staffing issues, understand what you need, and figure out how to solve the problems. She is also an excellent negotiator. You’ll get the candidate you want at a fair and appropriate compensation. And you won’t need to be involved in the final negotiations unless you want to be. She is known as one of the best negotiators in the business.
Linda Flah, Senior Vice President
Linda comes to us with a creative background, having been in the publishing, graphic design, and photography business.
Linda has been with KTA for 15 years. When she first joined, she ran our creative recruiting division. Since that time, she has become a specialist in account management. She is one of the best client service people around. Her relationships with clients and candidates are deep and long lasting. Everyone loves working with Linda.
