"It was imperative to us that senior partners be the ones making the calls to these C-level executives. I like the fact that Keith Pearson and Renee Arrington were the ones doing the search and not passing it off to junior associates."
“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.”
“Stephen was responsive and focused. He clearly took the search personally; he was more than just ‘doing the job.’ He gave me advice, kept me up to date and guided me through the search.
"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.”
“The process was very, very thorough. Although I was eager to jump right into the role, I appreciated that the Pearson team was being very thorough, sourcing all of the candidates that would be a potential fit and not just walking in with one and saying, ‘Hey, we found your golden boy.’ I felt their sense of responsibility to their client in being certain they brought the best candidates to the table and that was evident in the process.”
"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."
“Renee and Lisa really took the time to seek our input. They both absolutely hit the nail on the head in terms of prioritizing the skills and traits we were looking for. I know that everybody involved in the search saw that as well. I had worked successfully with Renee in the past for executive search and I could see that Pearson obviously delivers a strong consistency in quality.”
"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."
“We expected a diverse group of candidates, and that they be totally and thoroughly screened, and they were,” Hawkins says. “It was very clear that Pearson Partners spent a lot of time and effort with each candidate, because the detailed write-ups that we received on each one prior to the interview were right on target."
“When I reached out to Pearson Partners, Renee Arrington and Lisa Thompson were in my office within 48 hours. It was unbelievable. They put my mind at ease about what the process would look like. They were in constant communication with me, and they reached outside the chess game that other recruiters play, where people are just moved around from one organization to the next. They went beyond the usual suspects to recruit from other strategic areas, such as medicine and academics, which I was excited and surprised to see.”
