Testimonials

"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
“Pearson Partners really takes the time to get to know their candidates and the companies they work with. As a candidate, I felt very supported by Lisa and Renee, and I could feel they wanted to make sure I was making a decision that was good for me as well as their client. I felt like I was treated as a client and a friend.”
Maria MacMullin, Senior Director of Major GiftsGenesis Women's Shelter and Support
"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
“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
"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 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
"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
“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
"Keith and Lisa worked with us to assess individual pluses and minuses and provided a great deal of input and analysis of candidates. We have great peace of mind knowing that the process was consistent and fair and we met some excellent people that we will definitely contact if other opportunities come along. It was a great experience and I would absolutely recommend Pearson Partners to others."
Jesse Oliver, Deputy Executive DirectorDallas Area Rapid Transit (DART)
“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."
Diane Hawkins, Sr Director People & PerformanceMeeting Professionals International
