Client Testimonials

“Mike is a well connected executive recruiter that takes the time to understand your business and then find top notch talent that fits the needs and culture of your company. We recently added a CTO and Mike was able to attract top tier talent to the process and then managed the whole review and hiring process to a successful conclusion. I would highly recommend Mike for any executive recruiting needs you may have.”

“In a very short time frame, Mike and his team have been able to assess our unique needs and provide quality engineering candidates that have previously taken a significant amount of time to surface and subsequently close. Among his arsenal of capabilities are honesty, integrity, the requisite technical ability to understand the requirements of a given position, and a solid network. His professional approach in concert with his willingness to invest the time required to fully understand the requirements of the position are an important part of his success with our organization. Mike does not hesitate to ask questions to either help clarify his understanding or learn something new. The services Mike provides will be a key component of our near-term and long-term growth.”

“Mike is an excellent executive recruiter who understands how to navigate successfully through the nuances of recruiting senior level talent. He partners well with his customers to identify the true success criteria required and build a sourcing/recruitment strategy to secure the best talent around leveraging his own extensive network to build inroads to other high-performing passive candidates.
