“David opened my eyes; I don’t even think recruiter is the right word for David, I mean he really is more like a shaper. He helped me think about this whole process in a completely different way. He did things that I would never even have imagined.” – Luke Williams, Corporate Vice President Client Care Program, AECOM

“Execution and commitment are absolutely essential to any strategy or initiative in an era too full of plans, process and procrastination. You may have a technology which gives you an edge, but your people determine whether you win. David gets that. He delivered only the best.” -Joseph Nour, CEO, Protus IP Solutions
Executive Search Case Study: Vice President of Sales Manufacturing
“David Perry brings to the assignment an intensity that rarely comes across in recruiting, or frankly anywhere else. He took an extreme personal interest in the success of the search. He did most of the work himself, maybe all of it. David dug in extremely deeply to the candidates, the industry, and everything else to make sure that the search went the way we hoped.” – Eric Golden, Founder and CEO Equipois
Executive Search Case Study: Vice President Marketing, Director of Product Management, 5 Product Managers, several other director level personnel
“If you fast forward, we roughly tripled the valuation of the business. The valuation was in the 20s of millions of dollars when I got there, and the business sold for about $70 million. The hope, when I joined the company, was that we would develop an exit and execute an exit strategy within three to five years. We did this in 14 months.” – Steve Panyko, CEO CML Technologies

Executive Search Case Study: Senior Product Managers
‘…what I have learned in dealing with David and talking with him is that he really takes a team approach. It is not a transactional approach; it is not, “Oh, I have to go out and find a body that is a marketing director or this or that.” He really looks at it strategically rather than transitionally.’ – Alan Zander, Director of Product Management, CML Technologies
Or Listen to the complete audio with Peter Clayton interviewing Alan Zander.
Executive Search Case Study: Vice President of Sales
‘The thing that struck us the most, and the predominant reason why we chose David was that David listened, but he also gave us ideas. He really seemed to get the grasp of what we were looking for. There was an interesting comfort feel. As it turned out, what we couldn’t do in nine months, David did in under three.’ – Stan Janas, Director of Human Resources, Halogen Software
