Testimonials

"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 stood out among the search firms we talked with. Renee showed the most ability to understand our needs and seemed most dedicated to crafting her approach to our needs. I think she very much understood the position the board was in. When we wanted to interview or review candidates, all of the materials were well organized and logistics were handled top to bottom. Every one of the candidates was well qualified."
Scott Karol, Board MemberCooperative Processing Resources
“Heather and her team at Pearson Partners made a commitment to understand our firm’s strategy and culture, long before any specific assignment presented itself,” the CEO says. “We were impressed by her commitment to forging and investing in a long-term relationship, in contrast with the more typical transaction orientation of many search firms.”
CEO, Private Equity FirmPrivate Equity Portfolio Company
“Pearson Partners was incredibly well prepared for our initial meetings,” said Bowe. “The work they did even before they had the search showed us how hard they would work right out of the gate to find our new CEO. They had more knowledge walking in the door about our company, executive team and organizational structure than any other search firm we spoke with.”
David Bowe, Board MemberDallas Lighthouse for the Blind
"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
“The Pearson team was extremely responsive. They worked hard to understand what we needed in our HR department. Heather and Lisa were always available and responsive, and they provided top candidates. They took the time to understand our needs and the strengths and weaknesses of our HR department. I don’t think the search could have been handled any better.”
C. Jedson Nau, SVP & General CounselThe Rosewood Corporation
"I have known Stephen Konstans for many years and have always respected his high integrity and people-centric approach to recruiting. Stephen’s superior professionalism, dedication and integrity are exceptional in the industry and reflect positively on the entire firm."
Sandy Martin, CAOMatch Group
“Pearson Partners was terrific. I was absolutely convinced from the outset that Frank Morogiello truly wanted to create a successful outcome for all parties. He invested a lot of highly productive time and understood the business challenges we were trying to meet. He had a real, genuine stake in this, and I think that’s probably the key differentiator that made this search a success.”
Rob Gurney, Chief Executive Officeroneworld Global Alliance
“I have been able to bring an outsider’s view and experience into an organization, and ultimately an industry, that is ready for a digital awakening. This role draws upon virtually every experience I have ever had, yet is radically different. This provides me with both the challenges I need to grow, as well as the opportunities to have a broad and deep impact. My experience with Pearson stands out because each interaction was not only professional, but human. While in hindsight I learned that the initial candidate pool was large, I never felt like ‘just another candidate.’”
Johnny Dranchak, VP Innovation & Digitaloneworld Global Alliance
