Courtney Hamel


Both aviation enthusiasts, Courtney and Bev met in 1999 at John Wayne Airport while they were students at the same flight school. Over the years, the relationship evolved from a personal one into a professional one. Courtney comes to Apex with an entrepreneurial background and experience recruiting in the technology, finance and healthcare services sectors. She has successfully participated in key leadership placements with a diverse client base that includes private equity and public companies.

Courtney was inspired to team with Bev and Apex specifically because of Bev’s transparency and dedication to sourcing executive leadership talent that is the right fit at the right time. She appreciates the “once right” company culture and thrives in the placement process that accomplishes that goal. She rests in the knowledge that each candidate presented is carefully considered with regard to how his or her professional acumen and personal style will fit with the culture of the client’s organization. Knowing each hire is a valuable investment and vital to future successes drives Courtney to get it right.

Courtney resides in northern Virginia with her three sons, a teenager and 10-year-old twins. Growing up in Orange County, Courtney had a passion for horses starting at a young age. She later went on to compete on the hunter/jumper circuit and started the equestrian team at her high school. She is enjoying horses again after a long break and looks forward to her English riding lessons. Courtney is also an avid reader and enjoys traveling to places with noteworthy diving, great beaches, and breathtaking sunsets.
