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.
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.
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. It is clear they are able to understand our business and identify the types of candidates that we need to see. I am pleased to say both engagements were completed quickly and, most importantly, successfully.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Betsy twice in my career. On both occasions, Betsy was professional, polished and fantastic to work with. She goes the extra mile with her clients, and with candidates, to ensure a good fit. I’ve worked with other recruiters in my career; Betsy is second to none. Her diligence, care and passion for helping others stand out from the rest. On top of all of her professional skills, Betsy is a kind and wonderful person. I highly recommend her.
It’s rare to find a recruiter that returns calls promptly and keeps you well informed during a job pursuit process! Colleen is THAT exception! Phone calls returned in less than 8 hours, emails turn around even faster. In today’s world where ghosting candidates is the norm, Colleen is a clear outlier and that will pay huge dividends in years to come. I’ve maintained relationships with many recruiters and until recently did not have Colleen on my radar, however, after she found me for an opportunity I quickly learned there are recruiters and then there are ‘top notch’ professional recruiters and she fits clearly in this elite circle. Whether employer or candidate I’m confident you will not find many, if any, more diligent, professional, responsible than Colleen.
Betsy was an amazing partner in recruiting top talent to our analytics organization. She took the time to understand the company culture, the different departments, roles and levels and after a short time was able to identify candidates that would be a good fit. She was responsive, pivoted quickly after feedback on candidates, and ultimately found us candidates that we hired and that have been amazing. I look forward to having our next open req and the opportunity to work with Betsy again!
I have had the pleasure of working with Betsy on two separate occasions. In both instances I was offered the position. She reached out to me with opportunities that truly fit my experience and career path and she shepherded me through the entire process. She was great at communicating the requirements, being honest with what information she had and took the responsibility for making sure that the company and I understood each other’s needs. I highly recommend Betsy and her team at Gibson Consultants to all who read this!
I have had the privilege to work with Betsy Wertheimer and Gibson Consultants twice since 2010. Betsy has always exceeded my expectations in all the situations that we have worked together. She has found the perfect match with my goals and companies that have allowed me to grow. Betsy took the time to learn of my needs, and instantly find the right path. Always responsive, always available, created specific strategies to find the perfect placement, trustworthy, professional, committed to her clients to create a win-win. I highly recommend Betsy. I can’t say enough. There is no question about it, Betsy should be your only recruiting call.
I’ve worked with many recruiters and executive placement firms but I really enjoyed working with Jim and Diane. They really stand out in all aspects. Both were very professional, honest and provide best knowledge about the company they were recruiting for. My new position is a perfect match! I really enjoyed working with you and I would definitely recommend your firm.
As both a hiring manager and a job candidate, I have worked with many professional recruiters over my 25-year career. I would describe my experience with Jim Gibson and the Gibson Consultants team as one of the very best of those experiences. I was contacted by Jim and his team concerning a position search they were conducting for a Global Services firm. Over the course of a 3-month courtship, interviewing and hiring process, Jim and his team excelled at all the things that are most important to a job candidate – communicating clearly and consistently, shepherding the process through delays and detours, following up and managing expectations from both sides. I found Jim personally to be not only a consummate professional but also someone I could trust to discuss my thoughts openly and provide candid, realistic guidance. I would recommend Jim and his team to any executive considering a career move.
