I enjoy the intellectual stimulation and challenge of executive recruiting.
Having a client tell me that our candidate has really made a difference to their organization is the best compliment they can give me.
We go beyond the role of search consultant and strive to be a trusted advisor. As an example, we offer personality testing on lead candidates and the hiring executive to determine how well their work-style traits might mesh.
I consider myself very fortunate to have traveled extensively. While I love visiting London, Paris or any of the major cities around the world, I find the trips I have particularly enjoyed are those to places a little more off the beaten track (although many have grown significantly in popularity in recent years) such as Machu Pichu, Angor Wat and Petra as well as Nepal, Tibet and the Amazon rainforest. Not only are these places incredibly beautiful, but these countries and the way people live there are so different from my world here. Travel is truly an education.
