Lisa Hashbarger, who spent more than a decade with Fallon, joined executive search firm Pixie Dust as talent scout/recruiter, leading the company’s new search/recruit division for senior creatives. In the role, she will be tasked with performing searches for senior level creative roles and partner with Pixie Dust co-founders Laura Keller and Ashley Mehbod in vetting C-level candidates, as well as overall recruiting efforts. 

“We’re very excited to bring Lisa’ on board,” said  Mehbod. “She’s got a very sharp eye for creative portfolios, she’s a good judge of character, and she’s also a seasoned project manager who understands staffing needs and work flow. With her good energy and incredible network, she was an ideal choice to develop a Pixie Dust silo dedicated to finding Senior Creatives.”

Hashberger first joined Fallon as a project manager at the beginning of 2004. Nearly six years later she was promoted to project manager supervisor. She became a creative manager/recruiter in May of 2012 and was promoted to director of creative operations, her most recent role with the agency, in August of 2013, before leaving the agency last April. While with Fallon she worked with brands including Citibank, Cadillac, Holiday Inn, Travelers. Prior to joining the agency she spent time with Herdstrom/Blessing as an account executive and Legacy Design as a senior account executive. 

“Pixie Dust is known for finding and placing top talent that can solve brand problems and build winning teams for agencies and corporate marketers and help advance careers for individual C-level candidates,” said Hashbarger. “I’m looking forward to growing the company’s Senior Creative search business. My experience, combined with a desire to only work with and represent the best talent out there, aligns with the Pixie Dust executive search mission.”
