Her addition also gives TorchLight an expanded presence in the Baltimore area.

“Since opening our doors just six years ago, TorchLight has experienced exponential growth, as evidenced by our recent Inc. 5000 awards in 2016 and 2017—but we are only just getting started,” said TorchLight President & CEO Heidi Parsont. “We are in the business of helping D.C.-area companies find, recruit and hire top talent to achieve their goals and, likewise, helping talented marketing professionals find challenging, inspiring work. As our first Director of Enterprise Business Development, Stephanie will lead strategies for serving new enterprise clients with talent acquisition in the areas of marketing, communications, digital and PR.”

Ranno’s work history

Prior to joining TorchLight, Ranno spent more than a dozen years in the industry. Most recently she worked as Managing Director of SHIFT Recruiting and as Strategic Account Manager of Profiles, a TorchLight competitor. She began her career in development and fundraising for two Baltimore nonprofits—Port Discovery – The Children’s Museum and Center Stage.

Ranno was recently picked by The Daily Record as one of Maryland’s 2017 Leading Women. The award singled out her professional experience, community involvement and commitment to inspiring change.

Passionate about giving back to the community, Ranno is a dedicated volunteer. Her current leadership roles include providing career-based advice and mentoring to unemployed individuals in Baltimore City through Maryland New Directions and serving on the National Advisory Council of MADE: In America, an organization founded to promote and support American industry and craft production.
