About Angela Marturano: 

Angela Marturano is the Founder and President of Orchid Holistic Search, an executive search firm that goes beyond the simple matching of a job description to a curriculum vitae. Orchid Holistic Search connects brands in the natural products industry with the right talent to create healthy, long-term employment.

Previously, Angela was the Sales and Recruitment Executive for Venteon Finance and the Territory Sales Manager for Arcadia Brewing Company in Michigan.

Together, they work to deeply understand each clients’ mission, culture, and vision to deliver exceptional results quickly.
