Kathy helped us to find candidates with extremely hard to find niche skill sets in the R&D/Product Marketing space. She was able to identify quality candidates who not only had the experience we were looking for but candidates who truly fit with our company culture and brand values. I could count on her to provide timely updates, keep candidates engaged throughout the hiring process, and provide exceptional service.

—Chantell Cooper, Director Talent Acquisition at Arbonne

Jeff is a fabulous recruiter that is very proficient at finding excellent, relevant candidates for all types of positions. I had a challenging goal to recruit experienced candidates for a foreign assignment, and Jeff was instrumental in achieving that goal.

—Chris Folk, VP Engineering Manufacturer at DARBA & Pharos

Working with Kathy proved to be a truly enjoyable experience. What set her apart from other recruiters I engaged with was her dedication, her personal interest in the candidate and her responsiveness. I felt like she is really working on my behalf and tried hard to understand what I am looking for in the new position. Results speak louder than words – I am starting my new role in July and I’m very excited.
