Cheyene Marling EVP FirestormCheyene Marling, Hon. MBCI, Firestorm Executive Vice President of People Solutions and Program Analytics, has been an executive recruiter for more than 22 years, with 20 of those years specializing in the business continuity field. Her career as an executive recruiter began in Madison, Wisconsin shortly after graduating from UW-Madison with a bachelor’s degree. In Madison, she placed professionals at all levels, from programmers and accountants to professors. Shortly after moving to southern California in 1998, she joined Management Recruiters International (MRI) where she immediately began recruiting in the business continuity field.

She decided to forge a new company solely dedicated to business continuity and founded BC Management, Inc. In January 2018, BC Management became a part of Firestorm, a Novume (NASDAQ: NVMM) company.
