“Talent drives successful companies. Recruiting is based on relationships. Over the past decade I’ve gotten to know hundreds of people through my work. I regularly reconnect with my placements to grow and keep my network strong. Many of these relationships have continued on a professional level, and several have become genuine friendships. If you place the right people in the right positions, it’s a win for the individual and a win for the employer.”
