"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
"I realized I should probably start thinking about a potential career change. I had been friends with Stephen Konstans at Pearson Partners for many years, and an occasional source on his search projects. I met with him to talk things through, and he told me about Pearson Partners' executive coaching services and introduced me to Lisa Thompson, Pearson's managing director of professional services. Lisa gave me some invaluable advice: It would be good to prepare and lay some groundwork, so if and when the time came, I'd be ready."
Mark Layton, COOVideoPlus
“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
"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
"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
“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
