Beverly Wiesen


Bev started her career at Arthur Andersen & Co. as a tax consultant where she built a solid business foundation. She took the consultative approach from Andersen, coupled with a focus on relationship building to follow her passion of being a team builder and connector of people. She fell in love with recruiting while working in a personnel office during college. Her enthusiasm grew over the next 7 years while managing the finance and accounting search practice for BridgeGate Group.

Strategic hiring driven by finding the right fit proved to be her calling. She decided to take a chance to pursue her passion and founded Apex Executive Search in 1996.  She focuses on hiring executives at the VP and C level and has experience building out entire leadership teams in all disciplines once she gets to know the culture.  With her financial background, there is particular emphasis on CFOs and their direct reports including CAO, VP Finance, VP Tax, VP SOX/IA/Compliance, Treasurer and VP Controller.  She also personally handles searches in human resources, legal, marketing, technology, and operations.  Ultimately, Bev thrives off of the synergy between her firm and her clients by being the catalyst for company growth and helping people develop satisfying careers.

Bev resides in San Clemente with her significant other, Jake, and their two dogs. They are both private pilots and enjoy weekend getaways and other global travel. Bev is an avid basketball fan, loves organic gardening and also raises a wide-variety of butterflies including endangered Monarchs. She’s actively involved in charities supporting the welfare of children and women including Girls Inc., Art & Creativity for Healing, Make-A-Wish®, and Nightlight Christian Adoptions, which helped her adopt her daughter from Russia.
