From the beginning of our relationship, Larry actively worked to understand our company’s value proposition and strove to create a game plan for marketing the company to highly qualified candidates. He used his Rolodex effectively and was able to put the right person in front of us in a very short period of time. During the interviews and work package negotiation, he took a very hands-on approach to understanding both the needs to the company and the needs of the candidate to ensure that both sides were comfortable with the process.
