“Pearson Partners was terrific. I was absolutely convinced from the outset that they truly wanted to create a successful outcome for all parties. They invested a lot of highly productive time and understood the business challenges we were trying to meet. They had a real, genuine stake in this, and I think that’s probably the key differentiator that made this search a success.”
"Going into the second interview, I asked Pearson Partners for coaching and got some really good insight and valuable feedback. As an executive search firm, they know how to treat you."
“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.”
"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.”
"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."
“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.”
“The Pearson team was extremely responsive. They worked hard to understand what we needed in our HR department. Lisa and her team 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.”
"I realized I should probably start thinking about a potential career change. I had been friends with some of the Pearson Partners team for many years, and an occasional source on their search projects. I met with them to talk things through, and they 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."
"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."
"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."
