"Pearson Partners understands the private equity business very well, and the cultural attributes that go hand-in-hand with that. They were in tune with our need for this person to both fit internally and interact positively with our portfolio companies. If a search firm didn't traffic in the private equity space, they wouldn't be in tune with that."
Christopher Ray, Sr Mng PartnerNatural Gas Partners
"Pearson Partners has very strong connections in the marketplace, providing personal networking with individuals that forge relationships with people who are transitioning, and I think that's extremely positive."
Rhonda MacAndrew, SVP HRGreyhound
"Pearson Partners was very effective at giving us the best of the best. They gave us good insight into the candidates they presented to us, and we had conversations about them so that we didn't have to interview 20 people. We knew we were interviewing the right people."
Chris Burt, SVP HRLSG Sky Chefs
"The best part of the partnership, for me as a business leader, is that Pearson Partners takes the time to understand our business goals, not just what we are trying to accomplish relative to recruitment needs."
Marvin Riley, PresidentFairbanks Morse Engine
"The search was flawless. There was a lot of pressure, timing was of the essence, and we had to find the absolute best candidate. I am a huge fan of Pearson Partners. They exceeded my expectations."
Anita Vanderveer, VP PeopleSonic Corporation
"The search was an eye-opener for me. Before I engaged Pearson Partners, I had rarely seen someone with the combination of innovation, credentials and education that we were seeking.”
Mark Haney, SVPWellStar Health System
“We couldn't be happier. Pearson Partners was very responsive. I am one of the most critical people you’ll find, but they were truly a pleasure to work with. We found them to be very good partners and would enjoy working with them again.”
Pat Barth, SVPLone Star Steakhouse
