Hollis Kline

Senior Consultant

MBA from: Stanford Graduate School of Business

Working style: Friendly, collaborative, direct, creative

What I love about my job: Hearing everyone’s unique stories and helping clients identify their most compelling experiences and present them as engagingly as possible. I'm honored my clients trust me with their dreams, fears, traumas, and triumphs. I enjoy working with clients with nonlinear backgrounds, since I have one myself, and am good at helping others connect the dots into a cohesive story.

Hollis Kline’s MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) and her BA in literature from Yale University (Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laude) have served her well in her five-plus years as a Senior Consultant with mbaMission. A lifelong love of reading and writing led her to pursue student journalism by taking on various editorial roles at The Yale Herald, writing for The Stanford Business Reporter, and co-founding a Stanford GSB blog. Before joining mbaMission, Hollis held positions in New York and San Francisco, working in design-focused public relations at Clifford Public Relations, real estate private equity at Carmel Partners, and executive search at Russell Reynolds Associates—where she selected and interviewed senior executive candidates for C-suite and board positions at large corporations. An avid outdoor athlete, Hollis enjoys rock climbing throughout the western United States and Canada in her free time and is a council member of the Yosemite Conservancy, which is dedicated exclusively to the preservation and enhancement of Yosemite National Park. When not scaling one of the park’s peaks, domes, or walls, Hollis is often busy engaging in one of her other interests—photography, yoga, travel, and vegan cooking.

I thought Hollis was very sincere and genuine in our conversation. She answered all of my questions and sent a great comprehensive summary of our call. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a consultation.
