“Dean needs to be at the top of your list if you want a superb client experience. I used his services to quickly recruit a deputy for me in my role as Transformation Director across a very large, sensitive and complex corporate transformation. Because he had already invested the time getting to know me and my style when I was not hiring he was able to present details of an excellent candidate immediately. We appointed this candidate on first interview since he was such a good fit for the role – and he turned out to be everything said Dean said he would be. Throughout the hiring and contract process Dean always turned things around super-efficiently, with great personal ownership and attention. Indeed I can honestly say it was the easiest and best recruitment experience I have had for many years. I have no hesitation in recommending Dean when you need to recruit top flight Interim Transformation Directors or Managers to minimise your risks of carrying out significant change. He has a refreshing honest approach and does what he says he will, and in my experience that can be rare.”
