Testimonials Tell The Story

Candidate Testimonial

"Without hesitation, I highly recommend Ken for any executive recruitment engagement, for those on either the client side, or as candidates. Ken stands above the rest to me through his exceptional level of professionalism, intelligence/knowledge, responsiveness. The fact that he resides many hours away in another country has never made a difference. Working with Ken is like working with a friend and neighbor. Most importantly, he takes the time to get to know his candidates personally, understand their background, strengths, objectives, and even personal interests. I truly consider Ken a personal friend now that I thoroughly enjoy speaking with, as much as a colleague and partner whom I respect and rely on as a trusted consultant and confidante.
I'm proud to recommend Ken for client/executive recruitment support in any capacity!"
