Teresa Mazzitelli '72

Teresa Mazzitelli fondly recalls visiting St. Ben's her senior year of high school. The Benedicta Arts Center was four-­‐years old and had a theatre department led by Sister Colman O'Connell. After four years of diligent studying, a trip or two to the La and endless treks out to the BAC for rehearsals (learning to fly under Colman's watchful eye was the highlight), she graduated in 1972 with a degree in Theatre & Communications. She attended graduate school at the University of Minnesota while acting and directing plays throughout the Twin Cities. Over the past thirty-­‐six years Teresa has been in the corporate recruiting business. She is the President/CEO of The Mazzitelli Group, a retained boutique executive search firm serving nationwide companies, organizations and institutions in senior-­‐level talent acquisition. She founded the company in 1988 after working as the Senior Vice President at Sathe & Associates for over a decade. Teresa is a trusted adviser to CEO's, business owners, corporate boards and search committees. And her firm ranks in the Top 25 List of executive search firms by the Mpls-­‐St. Paul Business Journal. She also serves as an adjunct faculty member for the Minnesota State Colleges & Universities. The last few years have presented incredible career challenges for recent College grads as well as career veterans finding themselves in transition.
