Onstott Group Names Cullen Onstott Managing Director; Adds Two Executives To Growing Practice

Onstott Group announced the appointment of Cullen Onstott as Managing Director. Cullen, who has been with the firm for three years, will continue his search practice, primarily in the energy, financial services and technology industries, and will now assume expanded operational responsibilities.

“Cullen combines a tremendous work ethic with a strategic approach to every assignment he manages,” said Joe Onstott, founder and CEO of Onstott Group. “In a relatively short period of time, Cullen has placed a substantial number of executives, and helped client companies build out their respective executive management teams."

“I am honored, on a number of levels, to have Cullen take on more responsibility and help grow our business,” said Onstott.

Prior to joining Onstott Group, Cullen was an energy trader at DTE Energy Trading, an active physical and financial gas and power marketing company, in Houston, Texas. Previously, he spent five years at Morgan Stanley, in the firm’s institutional commodities division in New York. Cullen started his career as an investment analyst at Rocaton Investment Advisors in Norwalk, Connecticut, a leading institutional investment consulting firm.

Cullen holds a Master of Business Administration from the Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice University, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Fairfield University. While at Fairfield, Cullen served as the Chief Operating Officer of the Fairfield Investment Group.

Onstott Group also has retained Brian Quirk as a partner consultant. Brian, who has spent the majority of his career in global operations in the high-technology sector, will bolster the firm’s expertise in the technology and manufacturing industries.

“Brian brings a wealth of experience to our firm. His practical experience and track record of success will strengthen our firm and provide valuable insights for our clients,” said Onstott.

Most recently, Brian was Senior Vice President of Global Operations at MKS Instruments, Inc. In this role, Brian led the company’s operations consisting of over 20 facilities in 12 countries. Brian was also in charge of integrating the Mergers and Acquisitions of MKS.

Brian is an expert in six sigma and lean manufacturing methodologies, along with metrology and product data management systems and implementations. Brian left MKS in late 2018 and founded BCQ Operational Excellence, advising manufacturers and operating companies on business and market strategy, operations management, lean methodology, organizational planning, and other key techniques.

Brian holds a Master of Business Administration from Suffolk University, and a Bachelor of Science degree in business management from Bentley University.

Laura Malcuit also has joined Onstott Group as its Office Manager. With more than 17 years of administrative experience, Laura will run the day-to-day backroom operations of the firm.

Laura has been an executive administrator at several leading companies, including Morningside Technology Advisory, Celldex Therapeutics, Partners Healthcare, Aspect Medical and Genzyme. She received her associate’s degree in Human Resources from Northeastern University.

“Laura joins our company at the perfect time. Her administrative expertise will ensure Onstott Group runs flawlessly, allowing the team to continue to focus on helping clients through executive recruitment and advisory services,” said Onstott.
