Angela Burke

President + Chief Talent Architect

For several years, Angela was an Executive Recruiter for Palladian West before she served as VP of Talent for nationwide non-profit, Bethany, building out an entire recruiting department for the 1400+ employee organization. In 2018, she rejoined Palladian West as the Managing Director, and in late 2019 purchased the company from our founder, Shelley Crooks. Angela initiated the addition of Predictive Index and Psychometrics to our suite of services and is a Certified Predictive Index Practitioner and Talent Optimization Consultant.

Angela is a MAVERICK, an innovative, “outside the box” thinker, who is undaunted by failure. Angela loves the challenge of finding new and helpful ways of serving our clients. She’s a visionary who responds positively to challenges and pressure and loves bringing her team along in the process.

Angela lives in Grandville, MI with her husband, David, two teenage daughters, Calista & Camdyn and their emotionally-needy Labradoodle, Scotch. Like Chaz, Angela has an unexplainable and often challenged undying hope for a Super Bowl appearance from our Detroit Lions one day.
