We possess a proven track record of working closely with clients to understand their needs, developing networks of influential professionals who advise us, and recruiting exceptional leaders to the region.

The following are a few recommendations from executives in this network. They offer their perspectives on the role we play in executive recruitment:

MS&S has an exceptionally long tradition of success. When we have a particularly difficult position to fill, we engage them to compliment our perspectives on key positions. They are tenacious in their outreach, represent our institution professionally and confidentially and stay with the project to completion, no matter how difficult. Their work style is honest and direct, and I can count on them to secure the very best candidates, both known and unknown, for our organization.

-CEO of large, cultural arts institution

With an entrepreneurial company that is growing quickly and does not have the resources or time to find the right match for a leadership position, we trust MS&S to bring us leaders who fit our culture and can help us leverage our asset base. MS&S offers personalized service and invests significant time to truly understand our unique business drivers. We value the investment in leaders who can move us forward, and MS&S identifies and brings those people to us to fill key leadership roles.

-Human Resource leader in privately held wholesale company

MS&S are great partners who have assisted me in finding excellent leaders for highly visible organizations. They identify and attract the best national talent and then design and facilitate a selection process that appropriately engages stakeholders and decision-makers. They are highly professional, respectful and responsive to an organization's staff and leaders. I depend on MS&S to guide us to reach the best possible outcome in a search process.
