We initially retained Mike to search for a senior hire for our German operation that we were having difficulty with. After the initial briefing, Mike outlined how he would proceed and kept us updated with weekly progress reports. After a 3 week period he presented us with a well qualified shortlist from which we made the subsequent hire.
This provided us the confidence to instruct Mike on another strategic Leadership mandate and again he demonstrated his ability to fully search the market for us and execute on the hire. We are pleased to have Mike as our recruitment partner and can recommend his abilities in being able to deliver results in a challenging market.
In addition we really appreciate his communication style as we always feel timely informed about the status and progress. The same positive feedback we receive by candidates and new hires which finally leads to the successful cooperation.

I am happy to recommend Mike’s services.
