“Jon helped me find the right match to “level up” in the recruiting world. Being a recruiter myself I was very cautious but found Jon’s candor, knowledge of his clients and genuine concern for what I was looking for refreshing. If you want a strong search partner to assist in building your team or if you are a recruiter looking for the right agency, Jon is your guy.” Stacy Kelly, Accounting and Finance Search Partner
