Julie Dodds, founder and CEO of Velocity Talent, says the recruiting process is like asking people to get married after two phone calls and a date. Setting expectations from the get-go to avoid surprises is key in developing great relationships with clients and candidates. A former partner at Deloitte with over thirty years of consulting and recruitment experience, Julie has become a life counselor of sorts. She knows the consulting business inside and out, and she has the elite frequent flyer cards and interesting stories to prove it.

Julie loves learning people’s stories, finding solutions, and implementing those solutions. She is a natural born dealmaker who helps people change their lives for the better. She gives every client the direct and personal attention they deserve, and she only presents them with the best-matched talent. Having a family of her own, Julie knows the hardships the consulting business can bring, and she guides candidates toward firms that meet their work-life balance and career goal needs.

Outside work, Julie’s kids are her biggest passion. She is proud of her daughter, a top collegiate and amateur golf player, and her son, a creative spirit and budding musician. Julie is a volunteer golf rules official for the Oregon Golf Association and aspires to obtain a USGA certification to work at the national level in the future. She has been on boards of the Portland Baroque Orchestra and the Salvation Army of Portland metro. She is also an adjunct professor for the MBA program at Marylhurst University.
