"In my 30+ years as an HR professional, I have never worked with an Executive Sales Recruiter such as Rick Todd. He is professional and honest. Most importantly, he was a positive representative of my company. Candidates were very impressed with his knowledge and follow-up and often commented on this quality.
Rick does his homework to learn about the company for which he is representing. He is vested in sourcing a solid match to our requirements. What impressed me most is the quality time he takes with the candidates to ensure a good fit with not only the company but with the hiring manager and the team. I have found this to be a redeeming quality to retain high performing sales execs.
Rick is highly communicative and engaging. There were no surprises with Rick as the client facing recruiter. Weekly calls were encouraged by him to keep the lines of communication open. Rick's process included a thorough write-up of the phone interviews he conducted, with a prompt turnaround time.
I always felt comfortable with Rick working closely with the hiring managers. This is something that I had not done with other recruiters. This allowed me to focus on my priorities knowing that Rick had the company's best interest at heart.
I highly recommend Rick Todd as one of the top Sales recruiters in the industry. He is a true partner with all lines of business." - Director of HR
"Rick is an executive recruiter that I have been working with for the past 5 years and he has a great deal of experience placing seasoned sales "hunters". Most of my current end user team was recruited by Rick and it's the best team I've had.
I've worked with a handful of different recruiters over the last decade and Rick is by far the best."
- Regional Vice-President of Sales
