"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
"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
"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
“Pearson Partners did an excellent job, and I would use them again,” Wallander says. “They were a pleasure to work with and a great partner to me, and made it easy to focus on my business responsibilities while ensuring I met the need to get new people in quickly.”
Angie Wallander, EVP & CAOReddy Ice
“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
"Pearson Partners kept to the schedule, which was aggressive. Communications were very direct, and they worked closely with our operating partners throughout the process, which didn't require me to get involved until we were down to four final candidates. The four I interviewed were of solid caliber. The entire process was tremendous; it was honestly as smooth as any hiring process I've ever experienced."
Chip Hornsby, CEOMorrison Supply
