Donna Rossi, Principal and FounderPeople are an inspiration to me. I absolutely love listening and engaging in conversation with them, thinking outside the box, and creating synergy between ideas, stories, personalities and solutions to problems. What could be better than talking to hundreds of people each week, helping them to fulfill their dreams and career goals?

For the last decade, I have specialized in providing executive search services for the real estate industry. I was co-founder and Managing Director of Trovato Group, LLC, supervising the executive search assignments and operations for a staff of ten Executive Search Directors. My clients have ranged from mid-size development, finance and management companies to the country's largest owners and operators of real estate. After five years with Trovato Group LLC and the 2007 lull in the market, I decided to continue recruiting on my own while opening a small restaurant. I soon realized that although I love cooking, the restaurant business wasn't for me. I returned my focus to real estate executive recruiting, which is how Consult Crescendo was born in late 2009.

Like all people, I'm a product of my upbringing and experiences. I grew up in a large Italian family in Oak Park, Illinois. I received a BA in Dance and Physical Education from Illinois State University in Normal. I got married. Had a son and a daughter. Got divorced. Realized I needed to support my family, and became a sales executive for major U.S. corporations. After 10 years in sales, I decided to take my people skills into recruiting and started Trovato Group LLC with a partner. Then I left to pursue my dreams.

All of these experiences have made me both a perfectionist and a realist. I've come to see that people need to continually ask questions and make mistakes to learn. Make a plan, work it, and realize that the best-laid plan-no matter what happens-will result in good things at the perfect time. My son obtained a Masters in Structural Engineering at Marquette University, Bachelor’s in Physics from the University of Wisconsin, served 6 years in the U.S. Peace Corp in Africa and China, became fluent in 9 languages and now a Real Estate Design Engineer of High-Rise Multi-Family buildings. My Daughter obtained her Bachelor’s in Nutrition at St. Catherine’s in St. Paul, MN, works with WIC and is a graffiti artist and rock musician. As for me, I am single and here to serve my family and community. Life is good.

That sense of appreciating life, viewing relationships as a musical experience of converging dreams and talents, and an honest, straightforward approach to doing business is what makes Consult Crescendo unique. I believe business is all about listening to people and helping them achieve their long-term goals.
