About Abagale

Abagale Burk
Associate
abagale@ducciassociates.com

Abagale has an innate ability to connect with others, and it is her belief that the world is built on relationships. Throughout the course of her early career, Abagale steadily developed a real passion (and skill!) for recruiting, as all of her roles exposed her to various aspects of the hiring process. She quickly realized that helping connect people to the right positions is what she genuinely loves to do, and she decided to center her career around doing exactly that.

In addition to her years spent gaining exposure to the world of HR/recruiting, Abagale executed guerrilla marketing campaigns (and assembled the teams to effectively execute them.) She also executed benchmarking events for C-suite executives of Fortune 1000 (and up) companies. Through such roles, she has built up an impressive and broad network of professionals. These relationships serve her well in her recruiting efforts, with the majority of her candidates coming to her by referral.

Abagale holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing from Towson University.
