"I worked with Betsy on a couple of business development manager positions at Phoenix House and found her to be extremely helpful and professional. Betsy was a pleasure to work with; she went above and beyond to work with me to find the right person for the position. Betsy took the time to discuss exactly what I was searching for and if the person she referred was not quite right, we would meet and she would redefine her search, which meant a lot to me and demonstrated her desire to meet the needs of her client, as well as the people interviewing for the positions."
--Dayle vanderWerff, Vice President of Business Development, Phoenix House Mid-Atlantic and Phoenix House Florida

"Betsy is hands down the best executive search professional with whom I have worked. I've had discussions with more than a few recruiters over the years, and have always ended up staying put, or turning to my well-established network for employment opportunities. To Betsy's credit; she found me, interviewed me thoroughly to discover my desired career path, made herself available at odd hours to accommodate my difficult schedule, and ultimately paired me with a boss and employer that will be a great fit for me. I owe a massive debt of gratitude to Betsy, and Gibson Consultants."
--Mike Finch, Regional Director of Sales, Colibrium

"I've worked with many recruiting firms, as a hiring manager and as a candidate.  I found Gibson and Associates to be among the best.  Jim and Betsy are caring, accessible, engaged and incredibly supportive.  They provided great insight into the opportunity and clearly matched my background with the needs of the company.  Jim and Betsy are true professionals and good people too.  And, the ending to the story is I landed a fantastic job with a great company.  I have nothing but praise for Gibson and Associates and would recommend them as either a candidate or hiring firm without hesitation."  
-- Russ Anderson, Vice President of Product Managment, Clinithink, LLC

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Betsy and Jim. It was so clear to me how much diligence they put into the process, to not just find and place a candidate, but to ensure that it would be a good, long-term fit on both sides. While I have worked with other recruiters in the past, I have never found any of them to be as knowledgeable and passionate as Betsy. She is simply the best recruiter I have ever encountered. Throughout the entire process, she was professional, responsive, honest and empathetic. I couldn't be happier about my new position. I owe a tremendous gratitude to both Jim and Betsy for making it happen!"
--Susan Miller, Regional Director of Sales, Colibrium
