Bonnie Grey Sugrue


“It’s not about filling a job with someone who meets the qualifications.  It’s about matching the most talented, driven, strategic thinking, passionate people with the very best employment opportunities.”

Bonnie's philosophy is to put a mark of excellence on everything she does.  During her nearly 20 years in  recruiting, she has focused on bringing together top talent with best-in-class employers in both search firm and corporate environments. 

After completing her MBA from Virginia Commonwealth University, she began her national search career with one of the largest, most successful search firms in the country, working with many of the nation’s top performers.  She then moved into recruiting leadership roles and opened her own search practice. 

To gain corporate perspective and experience, she joined M&T Bank, a top 20 super-regional bank, where she spent 7 years as Vice President and Senior Talent Acquisition Team Manager.  At M&T, she conducted executive search across all lines of business and managed a team of Recruiting Managers and Search Consultants responsible for filling the most challenging roles throughout the organization. 

Today, as President of Grey Allen, Inc., Bonnie provides professional search services and carries on a long standing family legacy of entrepreneurship.
