Woodmoor Group, Inc. is one of the nation's best independent executive search firms. Here are some quotes from both clients and candidates:
"The MRIs and Fortunes keep on calling but they do not know what to look for. Experience in the disciplines we need is one of the reasons we continue to use Woodmoor Group...Our plan is to have at least a 10 year relationship with Woodmoor."
"Amidst the surplus of executive search firms, the Woodmoor Group demonstrated two significant differentiators: responsiveness and creativeness. As a customer you may not receive what you ask for . . . chances are likely that it will be more and better."
"I would rate my experience with the Woodmoor Group as very high in terms of quality and service. The Woodmoor Group is one of the first search firms I turn to when needing assistance in this area. I would highly recommend them."
"I most enjoy working with your associate because of his style. He works with me as a true partner in the search, not just a headhunter looking to fill a position for the fee. He is excellent at communicating his progress and is able to change his direction when needed. He is persistent but not annoying."
"Woodmoor Group referred the successful candidate for our Senior Explorations position. In fact, they referred a number of qualified candidates and possessed a good understanding of what we were looking for. He was responsive to our needs and a pleasure to work with. I would work with him again in the future should our needs so require, and would recommend his services to other employers who need assistance to fill their positions.
"I just wanted to send you a thank you letter and let you know how much I appreciated working with your office. The position description was looking for a business professional in the Heavy Equipment Industry. My background in business planning and my work with distributors gave me a partial match to the job requirements for the position, however the industry was a significant jump for me since I had come from the consumer electronics industry. My experience has been that many search firms do not consider candidates from divergent industries and backgrounds.
My hat is off to you for your persistence and openness, and your management. It was a pleasure working with the Woodmoor Group."
“We have had a great working relationship. We focus on the issues and what good looks like in our culture. As a business partner, he gets it. He has always kept me informed, developed the relationship, presented our organization in a positive and professional way and represented his candidates well. I have enjoyed partnering with you.”
"My company has retained Woodmoor Group for searches across a number of different disciplines and seniority levels. Your associate is one of the few placement professionals who, not only makes you feel like he is working for you, he actually does work for you. He truly wants to do the best for my company. He focuses on all of the critical success factors of employee placement from skill levels to culture, to family issues etc. In addition, he anticipates my issues and, as such makes the always risky placement process a smooth one."
“Ron, I was very impressed with how quickly you were able to present well-qualified candidates for our CFO/Controller position. Everything went just great and I couldn't have been more pleased, especially with the final result. Your services were outstanding, and I'm excited with how well our CFO is working out and how well we are working together.”
"An important element of our successful search was certainly your expertise in executive recruiting. That expertise included a thorough effort on your part to understand the job requirements and the competencies we were seeking for this position. It also included a determination to find the right match, even after one or two initial candidates were interviewed but not offered the position. Both the person we eventually selected and I benefited from your hands-on involvement in creating an employment offer that met the needs of both parties. I am happy to recommend your services to people seeking the assistance of a search firm for executive recruiting."
"...thanks for the introduction to (candidate). You are correct in your assessment--he is absolutely one of the top corporate strategists in banking today. He is a talented addition to our senior team, and we truly believe that his experience and vision will help to take us to the next level. You showed us great flexibility and creativity during the search, and added a lot of value to our recruiting and hiring process. Your advice on executive compensation packages was very beneficial in creating a competitive offer. We appreciate your professionalism and are looking forward to continuing our relationship with Woodmoor Group."
"You are continually bringing us the best available talent in the banking industry. Risk managers, HR, M&A, diversity candidates...we've asked and you've delivered quickly. You take the time up front to find out exactly what we need, so your candidates are well qualified and right on target. We're pleased with what you've done for us and are glad to have you on our team."
"It's been a pleasure to work with you (Woodmoor Group). You have been very professional and proactive throughout the process. We are very happy to have _________ join us."
"I have enjoyed working with you (Woodmoor Group associate) very much. As a recruiter you are faced with the tough challenge of balancing both the client and the candidate's needs. I always felt that your approach was client-driven. You searched for our candidate; you never tried to persuade me to hire your candidate. I hope that we have a chance to work together again."
