The team really ensured to take into account that they were finding a good fit for both the company they were representing but the candidates as well. I felt that I was updated timely through the process on the steps and how the progress was going. I felt that Caldwell was being thorough in their process to ensure a fit. They were not just looking for a hiring to get the job done, but making sure it would be long term partnership.

A truly hands in and personalized recruiting experience. I was well briefed through the entire process and there were no gaps in communication. The feedback was honest about next steps and what the expectations were from me, the client and Caldwell. The prep was excellent as well in terms of putting all information in front of me from company data to each interviewees bio and personalities to help me maximize each conversation. The leadership team at Caldwell that supported me were truly exceptional. All of this led to a successful offer, which is the ultimate test in the entire process. Couldn’t be happier with the Caldwell experience.

We've had a long-standing relationship with Kristin Hebert, and she understands both our business needs and personality needs. She's the perfect "matchmaker" for finding the right person to fill roles.

Kim Gray, Global Chief Privacy Officer View Kristin Hebert Bio

Kenny Baillie did his usual excellent job of research, communication along the process, follow up, and closure. The candidate list was tailored to our needs and the caliber of candidates was good which ( while it was a tough choice) made us comfortable to move ahead. In addition with the current macro market challenges, Kenny and Caldwell worked with us to extend the search period to align with our business needs. Overall we are very satisfied.

Rodes was a great partner and trusted advisor throughout the process. He has a great energy about him and is an outstanding communicator.

It was an amazing experience. Geoff was such a pleasure to work with, made me feel very comfortable from the beginning, and was super open, honest, knowledgeable and professional, as well as extremely communicative with ongoing updates. He also set me up well with additional info and tips in advance of each meeting. It felt like a true partnership all around! Kelly was also a pleasure to work with and very warm and professional. Both Kelly and Geoff were extremely knowledgeable about the Weston business, culture, and team members as well, and were able to link my skills with what Weston needed in the role! I also appreciated Geoff and Lauren being the go-to to set up the interviews and Geoffs involvement in the offer itself It was an outstanding experience and I highly recommend Caldwell to anyone in the future!

Kristin was amazing. Total pro. Knows the market, knows the game, knows the strategy. 1,000% satisfied and will recommend you all going forward to all my colleagues.

Director, Corporate Counsel, International IT management company View Kristin Hebert Bio

Matt and Steve spent a substantial amount of time to understand my skills and experience before ever presenting me with an opportunity to consider. They discussed my goals and potential next steps, and provided valuable context regarding the information security talent industry. When they started sharing opportunities with me, it was in a highly selective manner that was respectful of my time. In an industry that has become increasingly transactional, this long term relationship-based approach stands out.

Excellent communication and engagement throughout. Clear, helpful, available and commercially switched on - Alex and Paul have re-defined my experience of working with search firms and I would strongly recommend them to both in-house HR / recruiters and friends seeking new opportunities.

Working with Mike and Eric was a positive and wonderful experience. They listened to our needs and wants in the new CFO role. However, what I thought most helpful was they didn't just listen...they executed on those needs. They were diligent to ensure what we asked for in a candidate was what we received. They also were diligent to have regular conversations around those needs to ensure those needs had not changed.

We have undertaken more than 10 searches through Caldwell and each has concluded with an exceptional candidate placed each time.

“John is one of the top recruiters in the US… The profiles he provided by using a third party to assess the candidates was absolutely mind blowing. When we needed to make decisions about the final candidates, we had such thorough understandings of the candidates prior to interviewing them which was extremely helpful. I’d never seen anything like it… the assessment profile further serves the organization to understand how to motivate and improve the performance of the recruit.”

Jane and Kat really made the experience personal. They were engaged with how the job would be a fit for my family. Jane and Kat also answered questions promptly. Rating them a 10 for this process is definitely not high enough. They did a fantastic job to see me through to the offer.

All members I spoke with at Caldwell were extremely professional. Special mention to Jeff Freeborough who was extremely thorough and helpful throughout this entire experience. This is the one and only time I have ever dealt with a company like Caldwell....life events like a change in career can be very unnerving but the Caldwell team and Jeff made it a very smooth and comforting experience.
