Representative Client List

Customer Testimonials

Luke is a pleasure to work with and a very skilled and professional seeker of great talent. As a search partner, he took the time up front to learn our culture in detail so that every candidate he presented was potentially a good cultural match for us which is very important at our company. He did his homework to really understand the position at a deep level and then found really talented candidates that were fully vetted before they came to us. It feels like he does a very thorough search to find candidates that were not easy to identify so we felt confident that no stone was unturned in the process and the best quality candidates were presented. He provides a high level of service and is very thorough in communicating and documenting all aspects of the search which is immensely helpful. I consider him to be one of my primary “go to” recruiters.
Sara Lazarakis

Talent Acquisition, CSAA

I have worked with Saoirse to find matches for a number of  senior marketing roles, and it has been a very successful relationship. Naturally, she is quick to grasp a brief and to source uniformly strong candidates. She is also focused and productive, generating a small, initial group very quickly. But what has impressed me most has been that candidates speak so highly of their interaction with her and of how that has reflected on Aconex as an employer. Especially for those that may not have heard of use before, that type of introduction is invaluable.
Frank Carron

VP Marketing, Aconex

Saoirse was a pleasure to work with as a recruiter. She took the time to get a deep understanding of what we were looking for in a new hire, including skills and overall fit. This was a personal touch that not all recruiters offer and is of the highest value.
Saoirse continually tunes her approach and was engaged throughout the process of sourcing candidates.
Benjamin Strong

Chief Product Officer,

Saoirse is a fine recruiter, with the ability to locate top talent across the board, while guiding her clients through the most efficient hiring practices. Through her hard work, our department greatly reduced our “hard to fill” positions in a relatively short period of time. I would highly recommend Saoirse for your staffing needs.
Kevin Kinkor

Director of Talent Acquisition, Brightedge

I’ve hired Luke to recruit technical talent for our sales organization and he has been great to work with, referring only quality candidates and focusing on long term outcomes. I would recommend him highly.
Josh Leslie

VP WW Sales, Instart Logic

Luke was able to provide valuable feedback bout the current market conditions that allowed us to refine our search criteria. He was also able to source highly qualified candidates that did not appear to be available. All of his sourced candidates were fully vetted and prepped before I ever got to phone screen process. All the candidates clearly trusted Luke and had great things to say about him
Greg Tate

Sr. Director of Technical Services, Optimizely

Saoirse found me, with the opportunity for the most perfectly suited position I could have hoped for. She coached me through resume rewrites ensuring the best representation of my experience, tailored for the opportunity I was pursuing. This expertise continued throughout my entire interview and negotiation process – over a period of several months. She was tireless in her efforts and was a key part of my success in my job quest
Elizabeth Lamont

Vice President, Marketing, La Prairie

Luke is an outstanding recruiter. Very detailed and has the interest of both the client and the folks he is recruiting for the client. He has a energetic personality and goes the extra mile. I have worked with many recruiters, and Luke stands out as one of the best. Luke was a joy to work with and would recommend him anytime.
