After 5 months of searching ourselves to no effect, we brought on Insight Executive Search to help with this difficult search. Aaron and his team were very fast to understand our unique requirements and immediately started producing excellent potential candidates that we never would have found on our own. We at Hopelab would happily work with Aaron and his team again for future senior research roles.

Insight Executive Search did a fine job conducting an important search for an education executive for the CNA Corporation. We enjoyed working with Aaron Schmidt and he willingly adapted his search tactics to the changes we imposed.  We will be pleased to work again with Insight Executive Search and Aaron Schmidt.

The team at Insight Executive Search impressed us with their knowledge of the sectors we focus in and also made us feel that they understood our mission and goals. This was critical for us.  Not only are we thrilled with the caliber of candidates we hired, but working with Aaron and the team at Insight Executive Search was a pleasure. Knowing how thoroughly they were reviewing candidates every step of the way allowed me to focus on other tasks. I would use them again and highly recommend them to others.

Insight Executive Search was invaluable during my efforts to pursue new career opportunities in social research. They worked to ensure a great fit was in the making on all fronts from professional growth to corporate culture. I relied heavily on their expertise and industry insights during each step in the process from securing an interview to negotiating an offer.
