Our Story

Inspired by Partnership

When founders Gail Tessler and Norma Menkin met more than 40 years ago, their instant, deep friendship and business partnership inspired Gainor (Gail + Norma). The result: A woman-owned firm committed to equal opportunity and changing the lives of candidates and business leaders.

Their partnership inspired the values that remain the core of everything Gainor does:

  • Trust earned by working with integrity
  • Creative solutions through innovation
  • Commitment to positive outcomes
  • Celebration

We dig deeper to understand the spoken and unspoken goals of the individuals, organizations, and leaders we support.

We are advisors and advocates, dedicated to aligning talent with opportunity.
