I have known Mark for the past 15 years as a candidate and a hiring manager.

He is undoubtedly one of the top senior executive recruiters in the high-tech industry with particular expertise in identifying, pursuing, qualifying and recruiting hard-to-find

senior level sales and marketing executives.


He was "instrumental" in helping my organization at Hitachi and Optimiti to build a

top-notch sales team. Mark is honest, personable, detailed and passionate about his work. Mark is a pleasure to work with and I look forward to continue working with him
