What Our Clients Say

 

“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for assisting me in my search for a new position at Compassion & Choices. I appreciated your professionalism and support during the search phase. I have been in the fundraising business for over twenty years and have used many search firms, but this was by far my best experience. I think for me, what stands out the most, was the constant communications and always had an awareness of where I stood in my candidacy. The conversations were honest and always helpful. A special thank you to Joe and Michelle. Your support was very much appreciated! As I’ve said before, what a long strange trip it’s been…but the results are fantastic!”

Ken Mintzer
Compassion & Choices
Chief Development Officer

“We hired McCormack+Kristel to fill a critical position with our health and mental health services. The search resulted in the hire of an exceptional candidate from another HIV/AIDS services agency. We were so pleased with the attentive service and thoroughly vetted candidates, that when a second important position became available, we reached out to McCormack+Kristel again. We are so thankful to Joe and the entire team for making the process smooth and enjoyable start to finish.”

“Just a quick note to let you know {that the} Division Director of our Suicide Prevention Center, just hit her 90 days with us and she is AMAZING! I really feel like we made the right decision and she is beyond what we had ever hoped for. She is a gem and I just wanted to say thank you for finding her for us!”

Senior Vice President of Clinical Operations
Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services


“I’ve been using the services of McCormack+Kristel for a decade. Over the years, I’ve tried many search firms but none have provided the consistent level of service that I get from Joe and his team. The most recent search was a terrific example. I was looking for a new Development Director—in my experience one of the most difficult positions for which to find stellar candidates. To add to my worries, several organizations in our sector were looking to fill the same position. Thus, I was very concerned about how the candidate pool would develop. As it turned out, we ended up with a small group of finalists, any of whom could have done the job. Instead of having only one finalist, I had several really good ones to choose from! The person we hired had not been looking for a job. He applied because Joe called him and talked to him about the position. McCormack+Kristel excels at that kind of strategic recruitment.”

“Just a brief note to recognize your work related to the CEO recruitment process.  The process was beautifully and professionally managed.  The candidates presented exceeded expectations.  As we move now to the final stages of the process, I wanted to thank you and your team for all you did to support staff and the ad hoc committee throughout.  Please know how much it is appreciated.”
