"Approaching the recruitment of our first vice president for sales and marketing, our leadership team was challenged to determine precisely how the position should be structured and what the right new leader should look like. Stan Davis supported our thought processes, he and his researchers unearthed and attracted a solid slate of pre-qualified talent, and he then guided us through the selection process. He facilitated the on-boarding and assimilation of our new VP. Then as we fine-tuned the role, Stan continued as business consultant and sounding board to help assure a lasting success."

"My firm first engaged Stan Davis to help us create the role and find the right candidate for a COO. This was a new position with our firm and Stan impressed us with his insight into the expertise required, the necessity for chemistry between the COO and our existing staff, and what would be required for us to find the right fit from the COO’s perspective and ours. The amount of work and time he put into understanding our needs, interviewing our employees, and interviewing candidates was impressive and a great success in our eyes. Since then we have utilized Stan to help us find a managing engineer with a unique set of qualifications for a key role in an out of state office for us. Again, it was a great success."

"Stan Davis has been a valued resource and advisor for Nye Lubricants, Inc. in our search for a new Director of Technology. Being a small, niche player in the world of synthetic lubricants, we require a technical leader who has solid, graduate-level technical training in chemistry and materials science, strategic and product planning experience, research & development experience, customer and market experience, and strong management skills. Finding an individual who possesses all of these competencies along with the desire to shift into a relatively small, specialty company is a tall task, but Stan’s diligence and industry knowledge has paid off. He has been a pleasure to work with, and we are delighted with the results."
