Carly Smyly

Executive Recruiter + Talent Architect

Carly joined Palladian West in 2019 after devoting 15 years to large non-profit organizations, where she has been consistently recognized as a top recruiter, business developer, and partner to both colleagues and clients.

Carly has a passion for developing people, building teams, and cultivating employee experience. As a graduate of Calvin College and Azusa Pacific University, where she obtained her Master of Science in Organizational Psychology, Carly enjoys carrying out her passions and utilizing her education at Palladian West.

As an INDIVIDUALIST, a profile motivated by creative problem-solving opportunities, Carly approaches every new search as a unique challenge to pursue. Her natural curiosity to understand each role, person and organizational dynamic leads to making true 360-degree alignments in the searches she helms. Carly’s persistence and determination to achieve results—another hallmark Individualist trait—is an asset to our clients and our team.

In her personal life, Carly rejuvenates by spending time with her husband and their four fur babies (three pugs and a Boston Terrier) in their West Michigan home. She enjoys cooking, connecting with friends and family, playing board games, and cheering on the Dallas Cowboys.
