I’m a seasoned Talent Acquisition pro with over twenty years of experience in the event industry, currently serving as the President and Executive Recruiter at EFM Recruiting. My expertise lies in developing innovative recruitment strategies that connect my clients with top talent in Experiential Marketing, Event Production, Corporate Event, Conference, Audio Visual, Exhibition & Tradeshow, B2B Executive Networking, Festival & Concert, Event fabrication, and Event design nationwide.

My career began at William Morris Endeavor in the International Music department, where I had the privilege of working with renowned artists. I then transitioned to Nederlander Concerts at the award-winning Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, where I was promoted to Talent Buyer. In 2011, I made a shift to recruiting, working for Sparks Exhibits and Crawford Group before launching EFM Recruiting in 2016.

My passion for music and live events has remained constant throughout my career. I bring a deep knowledge of all genres in music today, a strong professional network in live events, sharp negotiation skills, strong financial literacy, and a track record of managing a high volume of work.

I hold a Bachelor’s degree from Fordham University and a Master’s in Business Administration from Loyola Marymount University in Human Resources Management and Marketing. By partnering with me, companies gain exclusive access to a niche pipeline industry-leading professionals. I’m known for my responsiveness and transparency, and I strive to deliver a top-notch candidate experience. My services include both temporary (contract) and permanent (direct hire) placements.

Feel free to connect with me if you have any hiring needs I can help you with, you are looking for a new role in any of the areas I specialize with, collaborations, or the latest trends in the event industry.

Founder, recruiter, and your jane-of-all-trades, Erin Monahan
