“Jill is impressive, super detailed and never misses a beat. She is not afraid to remind me and push things forward. She is good about knowing a candidate’s willingness to come on board. ‘Jenny on the spot’ in terms of feedback and timing. I felt plugged in. The system you all have – the organization – is by far more buttoned up and more organized than any search firm we have ever worked with. I simply trust Jill.”
