What Our Clients Say

Mike McDonald is a straight shooter and is one of the only recruiters our CEO lets us use. We share the same motto: "Together we WIN". Mike has made our company money, and he has SAVED our company money.

Gus B. Chief Revenue Officer Professional Services Software Company

Mike and his firm have helped our company grow by building our sales, marketing, and professional services teams - across the nation.  Most of our key, long-term employees were found and recruited to join our team by Mike, including our Vice President of Worldwide Sales.

I credit the success our company has had to the key employees we were able to hire through Mike's recruitment services. Mike worked to build a relationship with our executives - many of whom he placed over the years; he understands our culture, our management dynamics, and he has the ability to cultivate the value proposition needed to attract the people we want to hire.

John R. Chief Operations Officer Software developer for manufacturing industry

Mike forged a relationship with our company's key executives over twenty years ago. I believe our collective success was due, in large part, to the knowledge base Mike was able to build over time, understanding our company's culture, our management issues, and our growth strategy. I highly recommend Mike and his firm - he sets the standards for today's recruitment.
