I have used many recruiters in my career to hire sales and account managers but this was the first time I used a recruiter to retain my own position. Jim Gibson was the consummate professional from the moment he made me aware of the position until the time I accepted the offer. His detailed guidance, support and recommendations throughout the process were top notch. I look forward to working with Gibson Consultants again very soon.
Having been on both sides of the executive recruitment process, I’ve learned what separates a good search firm from an exemplary one. From my first engagement with Jim Gibson and his associate, Celeste Goodhue, I sensed I was working with the latter. That was reinforced at each touchpoint throughout the process. Jim is a consummate professional — clearly focused on the needs of his client but attuned to my questions and concerns as a candidate. Beyond taking the time to know me better professionally and personally, he had a keen understanding of the dynamics of the organization I’d potentially be joining, as well as the digital health industry at large. When the time comes to build out my team, there’s no question who I’ll turn to first.
It was a pleasure working with Jim and team as I found my recent opportunity. The insight they provided me in the position, the company, as well as in my aspirations was key to me making the informed decision I did. They were very accessible, friendly, and knowledgeable. Through the entire process they kept me informed and always provided an update on or mostly before it was promised. I couldn’t be happier with the experience I had working with them and would recommend them highly.
I’ve worked with many executive placement professionals in my career and Gibson Consultants truly stand out from the rest. Jim and his team really do their homework to ensure the highest fit between the candidate and the company, not just the position. As a result, I’ve found the perfect balance of cultural and professional fit for the next adventure in my career. I highly recommend Gibson Consultants!
I had occasion to work with Jim in connection with a recent opportunity for which I was a candidate. In a world where the focus is often one-sided; Jim is a fervent advocate not only for his client but for candidates as well. Jim’s guidance, advice, proactive communication and thoughtful consideration of me as a candidate made for a great experience. I recommend Jim and his team unequivocally.
It was refreshing to see an Executive Search firm going to great lengths to balance the expectation of an organization with that of a candidate. Joe not only took time to understand what I do and how this can be matched with (the organization’s) requirement but was also candid enough to tell me what was possible and what was not. I strongly believe that Gibson Consultants is different from the rest of the breed.
I want to thank you for the time and effort you spent to connect me with exactly what I was looking for in a company to finish out my healthcare career. Your guidance and direction throughout the entire placement process was spot on. At no time during the process did you pressure me to continue forward, rather you continued to make sure my questions were being answered, the answers were meeting my needs and if the relationship would fit my style.
Working with Betsy and Jim at Gibson Consultants far exceeded my expectations. They clearly understand their clients’ needs and expectations, resulting in a professional and rewarding experience.
Betsy Wertheimer found me my dream job! She was amazing to work with throughout the entire process and has a genuine concern for her candidates. Betsy was open, transparent and dedicated to my success and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
Thank you to Joe for his assistance throughout the hiring process for my position as VP of Business Development at HGS. His approach, advice, and insights were invaluable to me and contributed to my being selected for the position. After I accepted my new role, Joe followed up to make sure that everything was going well. To sum up, Joe was very interested in my success.
