Dear Michael:


I have used a variety of search firms over the past 20 years to assist in the hiring of senior managers.  I can say without qualification that my experience with you in hiring a Managing Director was by far the best I have ever had in this regard.  From the definition of the job requirements to the final negotiations, You consistently provided outstanding service on a timely basis.


We had expected that we would be lucky if we were to identify even two qualified candidates.  You identified over half a dozen outstanding candidates and anyone of the three finalists would have been more than suitable for the position.  The fact that you were able to do so within our budget constraints was especially impressive. 


Beyond the mechanics of the search, your advice and guidance was invaluable.  I look forward to working with you and your colleagues in future recruiting efforts.  


Thanks again for all your help and assistance.

Dear Mike,
I want to express my sincere gratitude for the exceptional work you have done for Packaging Advantage Corporation during the past six months. Based on that work, I enthusiastically recommend XEC Solutions as an effective partner in the ever critical area of management recruiting.
As you know, XEC conducted four searches for PAC in the following functional areas:
Vice President of Manufacturing
Quality Engineer
Project Manager
Production Manager
For each of these searches, XEC listened intently to the position requirements and promptly found a number of highly qualified candidates. Your team provided thorough background research and did not waste our time with unqualified candidates or meaningless paperwork. Each of these searches was completed in a timely manner and the successful candidates have proven to be high caliber contributors to our efforts at PAC.
Ultimately that is the measure of a recruiting firm, and the results speak for themselves! XEC performed exceptionally well and found the right people for each of the positions. Based on these results, PAC will continue to be a key partner in the future.
Again, thank you for the results!
Mark Kopaskie
President and CEO
