Patricia Shepard –Citigroup Private Bank
“I have had the pleasure of working with Ben for many years and in several capacities. As a recruiter doing work for my firm, Ben has done an excellent job surfacing and retaining attractive candidates. He has an innate ability to focus on the skills and attributes a hiring organization seeks for a specific role, and then dedicates himself to finding a solution for your needs. Particularly important is for Ben to understand what you need - and then think "outside the box" to identify tremendously valuable staff hires. Ben previously provided counsel to me in my own job search, and was equally impressive in his insight and his collaboration. His personal commitment to this business - be it for a hiring organization or a candidate - sets him apart.” July 11, 2007
