Kristen Machamer

Director of Recruitment


Kristen Machamer serves as the Director of Recruitment at JBN & Associates and holds a BA in Social Science from CSU Chico. Kristen compares her work to assembling a puzzle — carefully working to align candidates with their dream careers. She passionately enjoys learning about the nuances of each of the industries JBN’s clients operate within and discovering their goals and objectives. Kirsten’s work early in her career as a meeting planner sharpened her detail-oriented nature, which helped to guide her into the executive search field.

Outside the office, Kristen showcases her athleticism in a women’s tennis league and enjoys hiking and mosaicking. Believing in the power of effort, Kristen draws inspiration from the words of Rosa Parks, “We will fail when we fail to try,” which serves to remind herself and others that real failure is not trying at all. Behind her professional demeanor lies a fun fact: she’s been in three commercials!
