Testimonials

A commitment to satisfying our client’s needs every time is what makes CRW Executive Search Consultants one of the most respected executive recruiting firms.

Here are what our clients have to say about our executive search services:

From the beginning, we saw how strong his interviewing and recruiting techniques were in identifying the premier candidates. His ability to drill down on candidate talents and technical ability was superb. In fact, his reputation for getting to the core behavior and talents of these candidates created a need for training by our recruiters in our department to learn his creative techniques. Charles proved himself to be a very talented and savvy recruiter. Litening to the client needs, and getting the job done right are his keys to success.

American Life, Inc.

Charles ability to succeed on every search is an anomaly in the Executive Search Field, and this is why I worked with Charles filling high level executive placements within Pricewaterhouse Coopers 16 Western Regional Offices as well as for our most esteemed clients like Disney, Sun America Insurance, Spelling Entertainment and many others. I also introduced Charles to our eastern region and he was equally successful there as well. I will continue to use Charles because he will never fail you, because frankly once you meet him you will understand his personality won’t allow him to fail.

Patrick K., Former Western Regional Head of HR

Pricewaterhouse Coopers

CRW is a one of a kind! I was referred to Charles quite a few years back from one of the Partners at our Auditors at PricewaterhouseCoopers. We had worked with many recruiters in the past with some success and lots of failures. Charles was referred to me as one of the most successful recruiters that PwC has ever worked with.
Charles and his team not only made placements for us fast, but the caliber of their candidates was astounding. He finds only the crème of the crop. I heard him interview one of the candidates over the phone. Charles interviews to disqualify candidates, not qualify them. His interview has to be one of the hardest and most thorough interviews I’ve ever heard. In fact, I’m glad he didn’t interview me! Over our time of working together CRW made 8 fantastic placements and I will always use him in the future.

“I engaged Matt Hart from CRW Executive Search several times to recruit Finance staff while I was at Walmart. From a client perspective, Matt is very good at understanding the needs of the position and the traits / experience that will make candidates successful in your company. He seeks and accepts feedback on his candidate assessment nomination process to better focus his search. After the first engagement, he knew what I was looking for in candidates, thus saving a lot of my time in the recruiting process. From a candidate perspective, I was always impressed with Matt's persistence and advocacy. He would continually push through the company bureaucracy to ensure his candidates got opportunities and stayed in touch with them to keep them apprised. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a recruiter to help them in the job search process.”

“I highly recommend Matt Hart with CRW Executive Search for any senior-level finance search. Matt is very focused on understanding and meeting the customer's needs. He understands the critical management and leadership capabilities required of an individual at this level. I was also impressed at CRW's access to quality candidates and the speed of the process. Matt was able to access candidates we could have not have reached on our own and had our search closed in under 30 days.”

Michael B.

PACCAR Inc

"I have known Charles for well over 10 years and have been both the client and the recruited. Without a doubt I can say that Charles is not only an excellent recruiter but an outstanding individual that you will want to hire again and again. Even with the toughest searches, he and his team work diligently to sort out what we clients "really" want from our vague wish lists and finds us the best out there - and then he knows exactly what it will take to make me happy and the potential employee happy as well. Not an easy task but Charles does it with both grace and a keen sense of humor. I recommend Charles highly for any client looking to get away from the Big 5 recruiting firms. I also highly recommend him to any executives who do not know him, especially if thinking about a career move."

Olga H.L., Senior Finance and Accounting Consultant

Former Walmart & Ford Motor Company

"Charles recruited me from a Fortune 50 company to serve as VP/Controller of Total Renal Care, which at the time was a $1 Billion dollar company in lots of trouble. What persuaded me to look at this position was Charles ability to sell me on the people they had recently brought on to their executive team to help turn the company around. His ability to illuminate the personality and drive of the company and their culture is what "Hooked" me. I not only served as VP/Controller but was immediately promoted to Chief Accounting Officer. I am proud to say that in the years I served we grew exponentially and re-branded ourselves as DaVita Inc. I continued to use Charles to hire all my top Finance and Accounting executives, including my replacement. Charles' tenacious work ethic and his ability to disqualify candidates is impressive. He can locate and recruit candidates throughout the US to find you exactly what you want. He is by far the most thorough recruiter I've ever worked with in executive search."

Gary B., Former Chief Accounting Officer

DaVita Inc.

"I found Charles to be results-driven, focused and extremely professional. He ensured that he understood our needs for the role and took his time to do research on the market, competition and compensation for the role. I found his research extremely helpful in shaping what we really needed, which resulted in a great hire for us. He delivered solid candidates within the time frame we needed and the process could not have worked more smoothly. I highly recommend Charles!"

Kristin C., SVP HUMAN RESOURCE

Jones Lang LaSalle

"We did an extensive search for the best recruiters in the western region who could find us a top tier CEO. We narrowed in on a few recommendations, but Charles and his firm CRW Executive Search Consultants was the unanimous winner. I was the Chair of the executive search committee for our Board of Directors and I worked directly with Charles through the entire search. I was amazed how quickly he responded with highly qualified candidates throughout the entire US. Charles offers an executive recruiting process that is unparalleled in service and he is especially good at matching candidates with culture. Not only did Charles' make a great CEO placement, but we also hired him for our President search too. We will continue to use Charles and CRW Executive Search Consultants."

James J. , Board Member and Chair of the Search Committee

"Matt's value add is his ability to distill with remarkable clarity what needs to happen as he defines the "who" of the role, bridging functional responsibilities to fit within a company culture so that key executive transitions are managed successfully. In a short time frame, he was able to find a high caliber HR leader for our senior team with the specific strategic experience to help us manage our growth effectively. We have used Matt more than once for executive placement."

Lisa T., CFO

"Matt was able to fill our position with an outstanding candidate in less than 60 days. Prior to that, the position was open for over a year. We should have started with Matt sooner."
