“Excellent recruiters like Eileen Finn & Associates know the candidate cold – both history and motivation – and work as a career coach to help the candidate think through the dynamics of the business and fully prepare for each interview. The result is a highly successful fit between candidate and client.”
Paul Marchand, EVP & CHRO at Charter Communications; formerly Senior Vice President, Field HR – North America Beverages at PepsiCo
“I have been responsible for the recruiting function in 5 companies, in three industries, and have worked with many search firms. Eileen Finn & Associates brings all of the skill and expertise you would expect from a world class retained executive search firm with the ability to make the perfect matches between company needs and candidate profiles in a timely way. What sets Eileen and her team apart is that they truly care for their clients and candidates. Eileen herself actually talks to candidates before and after interviews. Eileen keeps her clients and candidates informed throughout the process. All should do this. Few do, and even fewer do it with both great care and great competence. I strongly recommend Eileen Finn & Associates for anyone who wants a great experience for their company and their candidates, and of course successful outcomes.”
Martin Rexroad, Senior Vice President, Human Resources at PTC Therapeutics, Inc.
“I have worked with Eileen Finn & Associates both as a candidate and as a client. Eileen is hands-on, is fully engaged in completing the search in the best interests of all parties and acts with complete integrity. I continue to refer her to new clients because I know she will do a superior job.”
Thomas Connolly, former Chief Human Resources Officer at Vertex Pharmaceuticals.
“Eileen Finn delivers a ‘best practices’ approach to her search work that is exceptional in the recruiting arena. She makes a deep investment in the diligence process and comes to her first client meeting more prepared than most recruiters. She is able to effectively distill what the client is really seeking, targets the core issues challenging the company and the key criteria required for the position. Eileen behaves as a true partner throughout the engagement, personally committed to a successful completion with a top notch candidate slate that allows her client to make an educated selection. She provides outstanding customer service by being agile and responsive to her clients’ needs. Having worked with Eileen as her client, and serving with her as a fellow Board member at the IACPR, I continue to admire her lifelong-learning philosophy; bringing creativity and thought provoking idea to clients rather than merely following the trends.”
Nancie Whitehouse, Principal at Whitehouse Advisors, LLC.
