"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
"I have worked with Gibson Consultants twice now to fill executive positions and have been impressed both times with the quality of candidates they have brought to us and their ability to manage the process efficiently for us.

I am pleased to say both engagements were completed quickly and, most importantly, successfully."
-- Tim Kowalski, President & Chief Executive Officer, Halfpenny Technologies

"Jim and his team did a terrific job for us. He insisted on having a face-to-face meeting with our team to fully understand the players behind our corporate culture before embarking on our search process. Given our unique operating approach and the intensity level of our management team, this served us well. Gibson Consultants delivered a perfect match. Our new marketing director is a seamless addition to our team and is already contributing to CAS in a meaningful way. And, in addition to finding the right person, Jim's team executed the search in a timely fashion exactly as promised."
-- Ed Meyercord, Chief Executive Officer, Critical Alert
"When we engaged Gibson Consultants to find a "needle in a haystack" candidate, I really wasn't sure they'd be able to. I wasn't even sure the person existed. To my delight, they delivered. The process was quick and efficient, and I couldn't be more pleased with the hire. They have proved their worth and I look forward to using them again."
-- Chris Watson, Chief Marketing Officer, Brightree (former)
"We worked with Jim and his team recently on a critical hire and were extremely pleased with the results. Jim knows the healthcare IT space very well, demonstrated great credibility to our recruiting prospects, managed our own team’s time very efficiently which we greatly appreciated, and presented us with a well-qualified short list of candidates, one of whom we selected. All of this was accomplished in a short timeframe, which was necessary. Our experience with Jim spoke to the benefits of using a retained search model when you have a clearly defined need (or one that Jim can help you sort out), a short timeframe to get the hire done, and not much time to invest in the early stages of finding viable candidates."
-- Doug Schneider, Chief Executive Officer, Connecture
"Both finalists were great and we thank you so very much for bringing us these excellent candidates. They are both highly qualified and I am sure we will not be disappointed with either. We have a difficult decision."

I soon learned that Betsy's knowledge of our industry and market makes all the difference and allows her to succeed where others might fail. With Betsy's help I filled the position with someone I am quite pleased about. Betsy is a real asset, and I recommend her to anyone with a key position to fill.”

"Mike Gilmartin and Gibson Consultants are part of my "A" team. In an industry marked by large, and often empty, promises, I find the level of energy, partnership, and collaboration Gibson brings to the table refreshing. But results are where the rubber meets the road, and few others have been as successful meeting my often demanding recruitment needs as Gibson."

"What separates Gibson from other firms I have used in the past is their expertise and in depth knowledge of the field and industry. They were more than just a search firm; they provided expert insight and counsel on the position—they acted more like an extension of my management team than just a purveyor of resumes and candidates. I am very pleased with the effort and result."
