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.

I have worked extensively with Aaron at Insight Executive Search to hire a senior person in the health services field. What worked exceptionally well with Aaron was our continuous communication to refine the characteristics of the candidate we were seeking. Knowing what we wanted, Aaron worked tirelessly searching the field for the right person and right fit. He sourced many excellent people and we finally found a stellar person who is taking hold in our organization and doing excellent work. Thank you, Aaron

Ari was instrumental in our search and was able to develop candidates who we would not have uncovered through our own efforts.  The candidates were qualified, interested, well screened and worth our time to talk to.  Ari is patient, knowledgeable and professional to work with and we look forward to working with him/Insight Executive Search again!

I was very happy with Insight Executive Search.  Aaron Schmidt built a great and diverse pool, was very persuasive in getting people into the pool and helping us with the evaluation, interviewing and, later, hiring process. We are extremely pleased with the person we hired.
