Practice Director

Iowa Business


Sarah began her career with MRI in 1996 and during her 14-year tenure, her very successful recruiting practice expanded to include training and leadership coaching.  She then joined one of the corridor’s fastest growing companies, Clickstop, Transamerica, and the highly influential GO Cedar Rapids organizations.

With a 20 year history of recruiting in the Cedar Rapids Corridor, Sarah returned as the Iowa Business Practice Director of MRI Cedar Rapids in October of 2016. Sarah’s commitment to her deep and effective client and candidate relationships makes her the top choice for bringing excellent opportunities to the forefront in the corridor. Without drawing restrictive boundaries on the areas Sarah Hermanson will serve, her passion for growing Midwest founded businesses, particularly those in Iowa, is a unique aspect of her practice that allows her to find the best fit, not just for the job, but for your company’s culture.

I am highly impressed with Sarah; she is consistently professional, friendly, and always willing to stop what she's doing and have a meaningful conversation. Additionally, she is extremely knowledgeable about local employment activity and trends, and someone I am confident has the right answers to my questions.

HR Coordinator

I have had the pleasure of working with Sarah to pursue filling open positions at Bankers Trust. In each case she has been responsive to our needs and competently handled the recruiting and search process. She is a search professional, and provided valuable input to us as we designed and implemented the searches. I would highly recommend her.

Executive Vice President

If Trust is defined as both character and competence, then Sarah Fare is the definition embododied. Try finding a business professional these days that understands it takes both a track record of capabilities and results as well as real intent and integrity. Sarah Fare is someone who understands that what is right in business is also what is smart in business. You can do no better.

Partner & Sr. Director

Sarah is highly professional and committed to serving people within her profession. I trust Sarah completely, and value our working relationship.
