    John has become a Strategic Business Partner.  He truly understands our business and has a strong grasp on the Technology market and our leadership requirements.  He has impacted our organization in a significant way.

    -Jeff Laue, CEO, N3 Results, LLC

    DES Recruitment has continued to demonstrate to me that they understand my business, the challenges that I face and what characteristics a leader in my organization is required to have. These requirements are both soft and hard skills, both tangible and intangible. It has been refreshing to work with a Partner who takes the time to go deeper into my firm to best create an ROI. I consider DES to be a strategic competitive advantage for us and our search for talent.

    – Patrick M. Dentinger, CEO, Absorption Systems

    John and his team made a difficult, very confidential search so much easier. The candidates that were presented for our review were thoughtfully matched, not only to the specifics of the position, but to our company culture as well. The in-depth biographies given on each candidate were concise and deliberate yet highly detailed which helped to make the interview process more meaningful. John’s easy-going style belies his tenacity. He can be relentless in his pursuit of the perfect candidate yet his work and communication style is respectful and intentional. I highly recommend John and DES Recruitment!

    – Debbi Bromley, VP Human Resources, Genex Services

    Optimal Solutions, now NTT DATA Enterprise Services, has partnered with DES, John Hodge and team, on several high-profile requirements. Each requirement passed to DES was quickly assessed, clarified and further defined to enable a powerful and productive candidate search. Candidates submitted by DES are always vetted extensively by John and team so that they fly through the interview process quickly. DES has been successful with some of the more difficult, complex requirements which we have passed on them. DES is an excellent business partner.

    – Valeri Wickersham, VP Enterprise Services HR Business Partner, NTT DATA Enterprise Services, Inc.

    DES Recruitment has filled several challenging openings for us, ranging from niche technology roles to director-level positions in our IT and marketing departments. We enjoy a strong and successful partnership characterized by high integrity, flexibility, open communications, and most important, results. Our colleagues placed by DES have been excellent cultural fits who have made strong contributions.
