Testimonials

“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.
Gary Swidler, CFOMatch Group
“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
"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
"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."
Ralph Stow, Chairman of the BoardSTI International
“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
"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
"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 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
“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
