"I recommend them without reservation."
"I have used Selker multiple times for C-level executive search assignments. Each time, they spent the time to thoroughly understand the company, the drivers for the business and the particular set of skills and personality traits necessary for a successful placement. Their background and vetting work is the best in the business… every candidate is well researched and qualified ...no duds. Selker is also a good judge of people, a useful talent for making the fit work.”

"Uncanny ability to get high-performing executives who are not on the market to consider making a move to our company."
"I’ve worked with Selker for a number of years to fill our most important executive roles. He is by far the best recruiter I’ve had the opportunity work with, for several reasons. Nearly every recruiter says they spend time understanding their clients’ businesses, so they can speak with confidence when they talk to potential candidates. Greg has taken that to an entirely new level. It’s very common for candidates to comment on Greg’s command of our business and the passion he conveys about our company. He’s as knowledgeable as any of our top business development executives.
Greg also has an uncanny ability to get high-performing executives who are doing very well in their jobs and not on the market to consider making a move to Affinity. It’s a unique skill, and I’ve seen it happen over and over again. Greg and his team have developed a successful system of identifying and qualifying candidates, beginning with written and verbal outreaches that just work.
Finally, Greg looks out for our company’s interests in a way I’ve never seen from other recruiters. He’s much more interested in finding the right fit with a candidate at our company than just filling a spot. His thoroughness from beginning to end, qualifying candidates each step of the way, through detailed interviews and candidate summaries to reference checking, is second to none.”
"...represented our company in a way that made him seem like an employee."
"Greg was, consistently, an incredible partner during our search for an SVP Global Sales. He took the time to learn deeply about our business, our industry, and the team – which resulted in him representing the company in a way that made him seem like an employee to clients. He was also able to delve into the metrics and data at a highly expert level – which was always very impressive. Additionally, he maintained a high sense of connection and communication, and definitely drove the recruiting process. It was overall a great partnership working with Greg.”

"At every step of the way, ...they are strategic"
"Selker applies a deeper level of intellectual rigor to the entire search process than I have ever experienced. Their approach isn’t just about spending more time or delivering more data. At every step of the way - whether it is helping us craft our story, being consultative in helping us understand the candidate marketplace, identifying and attracting the best candidates, delivering meaningful insights in their assessments, or managing a successful negotiation and offer process resulting in a hire, they are strategic. I have worked with Selker as both a candidate and a client and will continue to rely on them to help me build the best team possible.”
"Trusted partner in crystallizing my needs and in executing laser-beam-like executive searches for top positions on my team."
"Selker is a trusted partner in both crystallizing my needs and the alternatives in front of us, and in executing laser-beam-like executive searches for top positions on my team. They make it their business to deeply understand our organization, our business, as well as our technology, and have a keen ability to distill our value proposition and expertly convey it to candidates, who always are prepared and excited about the opportunity after their tremendous sales job. Their recruiting process, which consistently turns up multiple viable choices for the target positions, has always been thorough and systematic with detailed and relevant written documentation. I rely on Greg to help with organizational advice whether in the context of a search, or outside of it. I consider him a strategic resource in bringing key leadership on board for our next stages of growth.”

"Thorough process that delivers superior value to us. He has been a true and trusted strategic partner."
"I have worked with many executive search consultants over my career, and Greg is at the very top of those I would both recommend and use again with great confidence in the future. He brings a strategic understanding that spans the required functional knowledge sets and keys to success in a variety of executive positions. He demonstrated, and acted on, a deep and nuanced understanding of our business, developing and delivering powerful and practical insights into both candidates and our team, toward ensuring successful fit and bottom-line results. His guidance has helped us think through critical decisions about our team and organizational structure. While the best search consultants succeed at delivering great candidates, that is just a step in a much more thorough process Greg followed in delivering superior value to us. He has been a true and trusted strategic partner.”

"I was impressed with Greg and his organization from our first interaction... I'd use them for a search in a heartbeat..."
"I was impressed with Greg and his organization from our first interaction. It was not your typical "I have an opportunity you may be interested in" fishing expedition. Greg did his homework and discovered me as a candidate for a role that was an absolutely outstanding match. He then articulated the value of that role and his excitement about the match to me in a way that had me picking up the phone to talk to him the second I read it. His thoroughness in vetting me also exceeded my expectations. I moved into the next phase of my career with high confidence that I was going to contribute significantly and love doing it. I attribute a lot of that to the work done by Greg and his team. I'd use them for a search in a heartbeat should the situation arise.”
