I have known many professional recruiters over my 30-year career and Rick and The Windham Group was, by far, the most thorough, detailed and persistent that I have dealt with at a personal level.
The approach to matching a candidate with a position through personal interviews, several in-depth conversations and a probing but pertinent written questionnaires was a great experience to be a part of from initial contact through and after final placement.
I am happy to say my role has grown to include the additional broad role of Chief Operating Officer.
I would highly recommend Rick and The Windham Group for any C-Level recruitment projects.
I have worked with Rick Jacobson on several manager-level searches and was always impressed by the level of detail and thoroughness that he brought to each project.
