“I’ve had the good fortune of working with Lisa on two searches. First as a candidate for a Senior Sales & Marketing opportunity and later as a client for recruiting a Senior Product Management executive. She is a thoughtful and passionate leader with excellent communication skills. As a candidate she kept me informed and engaged through every step of the recruiting and interview process offering a tremendous amount of insight relating to the culture, opportunity and expectations. As a client she was able to recruit outstanding candidates and, through her outstanding assessment tools, connect them to the mission, vision and values of our organization. I would highly recommend Lisa for your next executive search!”

“Working with Lisa from start to finish of the search process resulted in my President, US appointment. I was struck by Lisa’s overall professionalism and high touch approach. From her first point of contact presenting the opportunity to the final negotiation stage, Lisa genuinely focused on ensuring my investment in the process and that the opportunity represented value for both me and her client. I can say Lisa’s assessment process stood out and was extremely insightful and valuable from a forward-looking leadership perspective. At the end of the search process, I was struck by Lisa’s attention to detail and her ability to strike the balance between addressing my issues and managing my expectations, while ensuring she was serving and representing her client well.”
