 About Us

AIR Recruiting was founded by Karen Himmelsbach, who grew up in the United States and played hockey for Princeton University. She knows firsthand how the recruiting process works and what is important to consider when choosing the right university. 

Ian Chernisky is a co-founder, who heads the American operations. Ian played hockey for Saint Bonaventure University and worked in the front office for the Phoenix Coyotes and the South Carolina Stingrays.  

AIR was founded to specifically bridge the gap between athletes around the world and American coaches.  

AIR identifies international athletes that meet the criteria that American coaches are looking for

With offices in both Europe and America, AIR is uniquely situated to connect international talent with a vast network of over 2,000 coaches at American Universities.
