Welcome Aboard, Evelyne and Aby!

TRANSEARCH Detroit has recently gained two new and amazing team members. We are happy to introduce to you Evelyne Andiola and Aby Saka, who are both new Fulfillment Managers here at TRANSEARCH. Evelyne and Aby haven't wasted any time in learning our operations, learning about the industries we serve and fitting in flawlessly with the TRANSEARCH team. We'd like to take a moment to recognize them and to have a little Q&A session to get to know them better.

Introducing Evelyne Andiola


My name is Evelyne Andiola and I’ve been at Transearch International for a little over a month now. I have dipped my toes in quite a few different industries. I started out teaching abroad in Korea, online and locally, then switched gears and entered the banking and finance world, and finally came into the staffing and recruitment industry about a year ago. At Transearch, I love building relationships and working one-on-one with our candidates to help them make leaps to exciting new roles. When I’m not in the office, I usually can be found in the kitchen practicing TikTok recipes for my good sport of a husband.

Q. Have you had much exposure to the executive search industry before joining TRANSEARCH?

During my time working at a bank, I was more on the client side as I worked alongside HR to help out with choosing from a slate of candidates which would be a best fit. From there, I switched into a recruiter role in a temporary staffing agency which involved full cycle recruitment, from sourcing to placing to following up and finding another temporary positions. I was then promoted to an Account Manager position which focused more on the onboarding process. What I love about TRANSEARCH is the teamwork, we have our Senior Partner who is great at training and giving tips & tricks, and Jacklyn who puts together lists of amazing candidates for us to contact. Also, working closely with the candidates to find the best possible role for them. Executive searches are much more specific and you build really great connections with people.

Q. What do you anticipate being the biggest reward working in the executive search industry?

The biggest reward would be getting to know so many cool people from different backgrounds and learning about how they got to where they are, and helping them to get to where they want to be.

Q. What do you anticipate will be the biggest learning curve working in the executive search industry?

Learning about the automotive industry. I do come from an automotive family – my dad retired from a stamping plant and my husband is a mechanic – so relying on them is helpful for clarifying things, but there is just so much! I definitely think this will be more of a lifetime learning then a quick weekend crunch session but I’m excited for the learning journey.

Q. In your opinion, what are some of the best ways for a company to make a new employee feel welcome?

Invest in them. Don’t wait until the 3 or 6 month “probation period” to invest in them, do it from the first day. Ask them what skills they are strong in and what they want to improve on to set them up for courses, give them the office swag, and let them know about meetings in the future. Take the time to learn about them. If an employee feels valued from the beginning, their time at the company will be a great one.

Introducing Aby Saka


My Name is Aby Saka. I was born in Windsor ON, Canada, I moved to Lagos, Nigeria when I was 4, came back to Canada for my university education and I’ve lived permanently in Canada since 2017 with my husband and two kids. Professionally, I’ve been a People Manager for over 16 years, mostly in the retail and insurance industries, with expertise in talent development and organizational restructuring. Currently, I am in the recruitment industry as an Executive Recruiter with TRANSEARCH International. My passions involve making natural beauty products, baking, and people.

Q. You have been working with TRANSEARCH Detroit for a few days/weeks now. What are your first impressions? How is it going so far?

It is a very calm environment, there is mutual respect and understanding, the staff very welcoming, great onboarding pace, my input is appreciated and valued, I love the independence given.

Q. What do you anticipate being the biggest reward working in the executive search industry?

Finding the right fit for organizations and finding a dream job for individuals.

Q. Out of all your skill sets, which one(s) do you think will be utilized the most in the day-to-day tasks of recruiting?

Resilience and Driving for results.

Q. In your opinion, what are some of the best ways for a company to make a new employee feel welcome?

1- Having a great open-door communication policy.
2- Having a very engaged, team-oriented work environment.
3- Making sure the company’s core values and culture is alive and being emulated.
