RETURN ON LEADERSHIP
It was a pleasure to work with Ray & Berndtson. We had a couple of very senior positions to be filled, and we achieved a shortlist of good leaders in a short period of time. In addition, the discussions we had to convert the positions along with the options generated made the executive search and onboarding much easier. Ray & Berndtson's personal attention and dedication towards the assignment is greatly appreciated.
