Get to Know Our Team
Principal Owner and Managing Director
Crystal Nygard, Principal Owner and Managing Director for the women owned and operated company, Right Fit International, LLC [formerly Management Recruiters International of Palmer (MRI)], has over 25 years of experience in the strategic growth of companies, specializing in increasing their bandwidth in an evolving, competitive marketplace.
Ms. Nygard specializes in executive recruiting, business team building, and business strategy services. She offers companies who have an ambitious growth plan, fresh leadership, or newly acquired mergers and acquisitions the focus necessary to integrate and recruit impact players with experience and knowledge.
Her experience involves over 20 years of being a business owner and working within the civil construction, environmental, finance, and automation industries worldwide. Specifically, Ms. Nygard owned one of the very few 8(a) certified women owned and operated companies in Alaska that brought innovation and efficient operation prevention savings to government contracting. Her unique hands-on experience and knowledge in government contracting and regulatory compliance benefits her clients. Ms. Nygard enjoys discussing with her clients the importance of building business systems and expandable tools that are critical for survival in a competitive economy.
Ms. Nygard has worn many hats over the past 25 years, including co-founder, CEO, COO, and “chief bottle washer.” Her focus was on doing whatever was necessary to answer the concerns of the client and the needs of the marketplace. She has grown companies ranging in size from just two employees sitting in a home office to multi-million-dollar, multi-location corporations. Ms. Nygard has received recognition as a “Top 40 under 40” and was awarded Small Business of the Year and Small Minority Business of the Year by the Small Business Association (SBA). Additionally, in her spare time, she is active in mentoring young adults in business, coaching local sports, and working with foreign exchange students coming to our communities or representing the U.S. in other countries. Ms. Nygard served on the AIDEA (Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority) board and is very active in her community. She continues working diligently to build her international executive recruiting business, Right Fit International, using power technology and human capital, which remain the top concerns for businesses all over the world. Her motto is, “Do today what may not be possible tomorrow and that which helps many generations to come.”

Success never happens in a vacuum. We see ourselves as strategic partners working for our clients, our candidates and our team. Every valid solution must provide an answer for all parties involved.
Inspiration and Invitation
We inspire others to envision a bigger future and invite them to step into new opportunities.
The energy that will open doors for our clients and our prospects is founded in gratitude. We must bring gratitude and joy to every day.
We partner with companies to help them grow through critical hire, bringing forth candidates who have proven that they are able to solve crucial problems and are willing to seize exciting opportunities. They must be wholly dedicated to the client’s goals because they have a connection of the heart.
We differ from our competition in that we target exactly the right people for specified, ideal roles. Our focus on technology and modern business practices creates a company that is global, flexible and highly productive — “targeted, lean and mean”.
We are focused on the end result, and not afraid to say so. A focus on placement outcomes and a high rate of return will deliver the wealth and success we desire.
Looking backwards or focusing on what has always been done will not help us to add value. We enjoy looking forward, discovering how things are changing, and helping our strategic partners lead in market disruption.
Testing ideas is a process of action and implementation. We recognize that development of skills and knowledge is a strategy for personal success and we continually challenge our strategic partners to learn and to grow.
