"Nick and Sue did a great job listening to our needs, understanding our company and identifying the candidates with the right combination of experience and skills.
team are one of the hardest working and responsive search firms that I deal with.
It is a competitive advantage for them; specifically in terms of their level and quality of research for the industry and/or the role we are looking for, coupled with a strong sense of urgency in identifying the right candidates.
has excellent interview skills and provides sound insights as to whether the candidate will be successful in the role in terms of skills and required competencies, future potential, and if they will fit our culture.
is the first recruiter that actually listened to my requirements and then fulfilled them.
I had actually stopped using recruiters because of their practice of trying to place executives that did not meet our needs.
A colleague persuaded me to try a professional recruiter one more time.
came to the table.
listened and documented the search criteria.
found four candidates that met the criteria.
Any one of them would have been a winner.
Approximately two months into the promise we found our new executive.
We are still thrilled with our decision.
found us a game changer.
- efficient, effective and accountable.
Thank you Nick
