“Building relationships takes time, genuine interest, and investment in conversations, dialogue, and curiosity that takes years and years to develop. Todd (Rosengarten) has done exactly that for me, and I am very grateful for his willingness to engage with me. He's got a choice, no question, and he continues to choose me.”
“We were working with Allison Greenfield and Michael Schoener on a biology search but they were able to identify another candidate outside the scope of the current search that might be a good fit, we wound up bringing this person on in addition to completing the original search. Their ability to have that level of peripheral vision and recognize this "bonus" candidate's potential was outstanding. KH is the first firm that we've directly engaged but I can say they beat out some other folks we were talking to when looking for a search partner. KH's reputation preceded it and I am happy to report that they  lived up to it!”
“I have worked with Matt (Taitelman) across multiple companies and continue to recommend him. Working with Ethan more this search was equally amazing. The team was credible, fast, friendly 100% recommend! Strong candidates, great communication, collegial approach. A+++ This search made me look like a rock star (thank you Ethan/Matt/Jeff) and we did this so smoothly. Went above and beyond my expectations.”
“Michael Leonard and the Klein Hersh team have been incredible –a true and trusted partner. Michael was the first person I turned to when making my most critical hire –Chief Growth Officer – and oh, my. He provided a Class A slate and worked hand in hand with me to bring onboard an incredibly passionate, driven leader who has been instrumental in moving us forward. And the partnership has not stopped there. Michael has gone far beyond contractual engagements to provide invaluable networking, connections, and assistance in both our commercial and fundraising efforts. For a fast-growing entrepreneurial company, that level of partnership is priceless.”
“I have worked with dozens of recruiters and by far, the experience with Klein Hersh was the most seamless and successful. They minimized the time I needed to spend describing my staffing needs by asking precise and targeted questions. They filtered through hundreds of contacts and narrowed the pool I needed to screen to a handful. Klein Hersh facilitated the interview process and provided honest and balanced evaluations of each candidate’s fit with our organization. From start to finish, it took only one month to hire a product manager with direct industry experience. I highly recommend this team and would definitely work with Klein Hersh again for our future staffing needs.”
