“We measure our success as executive search professionals by the long-term impact of the exceptional candidates we bring to our client organizations.”

As a Senior Research Associate with BoardWalk Consulting, Paula Nicholas gets great satisfaction from being able to put three decades’ worth of experience in executive search to make a difference in the lives of so many.
Before joining BoardWalk, she spent more than 30 years with a large retained executive search firm in a number of roles including senior associate, Director of Research and Client Satisfaction Officer.
Prior to Paula’s career in executive search, she worked at General Motors and the Detroit-Macomb Hospitals Association.
After growing up on a small farm in Sonora, Kentucky, Paula embraced travel with recent adventures taking her to the infamous terracotta soldiers in China and zip-lining over a Costa Rican rainforest.
