During my tenure as sales manager for a medical equipment company, I had the opportunity to use your services for the placement of sales representatives.

It was my pleasure to conduct business with you because of the integrity your provided for both me as a client in search for excellent representation but also in assuring the prospective sales representative a proper knowledge of what expectations were required prior to any interview. In my opinion, the mannerism in which you conduct yourself leads to the proper chemistry between employer and employee for a lasting relationship.

After considerable research, we selected Brethet Barnum primarily because of their high ethical standards and willingness to partner with us in finding suitable future employees. They worked with us every step of the way to find individuals that matched our organizational requirements by seeking to truly understand our company culture and what we needed. They also let us know when they felt they weren't suitable to conduct a particular search and offered suggestions on who may be able to help us out. It is rare to find organizations like Brethet Barnum who are primarily concerned with ensuring you get what you need.

It is my pleasure to provide a working reference for Brethet, Barnum & Associates Inc.; a recruitment resource that I have used for more than 15 years. During this time the consultants at Brethet, Barnum have consistently identified and presented candidates of the highest caliber, candidates whose qualifications meet the stated specifications, and those whose drive and motivation is in line with the vacancy. Brethet, Barnum has been very successful in the recruitment arena. This, for the main part, is due to their outstanding attention to detail and their admirable desire to ensure that both the company’s and the applicants’ needs are fulfilled.

Others speak about it… Brethet, Barnum does it.

I have no hesitation in recommending Brethet, Barnum’s services to prospective/future clients. They are extremely professional, they get the job done right the first time and more importantly, they don’t waste your time.

In my previous position as President of Biogen Canada, I had the opportunity to work with Bob Shiley on several searches for my organization.

First and foremost, Bob is a professional. In the 15 years that I have been in the industry, I have worked with several search firms; some better than others. Bob was by far one of the best. All candidates that were presented to me were carefully screened based on specific criteria that had been developed. The caliber of the candidates that my team reviewed was high. Additional strengths were his follow-up with me and the candidates, and his ability to work quickly with ever changing schedules.

In short, I found Bob to be reliable, trustworthy and someone who could deliver several qualified candidates. I recommend him highly.
