I take this opportunity to express my gratitude for the excellent work done by Manserv searching for sales management position in Spain and in Egypt.
On the first occasion, the candidate that has been found has revealed exactly as per our expectations and has very successfully integrated
into our organization. Finding such a candidate was not an easy task considering the booming market in Span and the strict profile that
we had defined for a suitable sales Manager. In the second case, Manserv has very quickly identified our needs as well as
suitable candidates in the exact market that we had been searching for.

Dear John,
It was a pleasure speaking with you yesterday and as discussed, we are very comfortable providing an overview of our business relationship to date.

In 2007 we had our first contact the Manserv organization and awarded a search assignment for a Costumer Service Manager for our European Head office based in Schaffhausen, Switzerland. Since that time the relationship had developed and we have worked on a number of placement vacancies including: Financial Manager, Commodity Manager, Regional Business Director and Senior Technical Applications Specialist. We have found the Manserv Team to be very professional with a strong customer service attitude. The candidates presented in al areas have appreciate the speed at which they respond to any inquires and requests. This is most helpful and saves us a lot of time.

Overall, it is clear they quickly grasp an understanding of the qualities we seek in our staff and as mentioned have been able to provide top candidate in a timely and efficient manner.

We do recommend the Manserv firm as a professional search organization. If additional information is required I am available at + 41 79 834 41 67.

Yours Respectfully
Tom Ashmore

....." John,
 Thank you for the note and for your support. You came through with a great candidate in Alexandre. I look forward to his first day here!!

All candidates were very good and it was a difficult call between Mr. Alexandre and Mr. XYZ.  Alexandre's technical background/education coupled with his high energy was the differentiator.
So as not to bring the same "retread" to our growing industry, I was hoping we would find a rep to join my team from outside our marketplace, you did a nice job in securing 5 solid representatives.  I believe Alexandre will have a long, successful career at Dresser Wayne".

John
Just a brief note to thank you and your colleagues for the very professional way you handled the whole recruitment process for our senior network position in Germany .
Not only did you produce an excellent choice of candidates but the ongoing liaison with them and the various key players in BT, in what was a relatively complex process, was impressive.
In particular I would like to thank you for your help and professional approach in the final stages of securing Bobby when as you know a great deal of reassurance and behind the scenes activity was necessary to clinch the deal.
I look forward to working again with you some time.

Regards,
Lowry Stanage

This letter is to express my appreciation for your efforts in successfully recruiting Account
Managers for our Europe operation.
 
We first became associated in the fall of 2005, when contact was made with your firm by the
MRI office I have worked with here in Portland. That effort resulted in you successfully
recruiting an Account Manager for us within a reasonable time period of a few months. That
individual is still employed as an Account Manager with us, almost two and a half years later.

 Last fall then, I contacted you directly to see about recruiting another Account Manager for our
Europe operation. You presented a pool of potential candidates from which we have selected not
just one, but two to hire. One began their employment with us in February and the other will
join our team in August.

We have been very pleased with the thoroughness of your recruitment process along with your
ability to match candidates as much as possible to our requirements. I feel you have been very
fair in your communication both with the candidates and us regarding the positions and
expectations. You have also assisted us in understanding the norms in regards to hiring and
employing in Europe.

I have been very pleased with the professionalism of you and your firm and would definitely
recommend you to others in need of recruitment services.

Sincerely,
Pamela K. Anderson
Senior Vice President

In recent years we have been looking for several Commercial Project Managers throughout Germany and Switzerland. Working with MRI Manserv and especially with John Steele proved to be very successful. Within a very short timeframe people with matching capabilities have been made available and we were able to hire some high potential new colleagues.

Most of them are still with the company and are evolving their capabilities in the growing and very complex demands within our business.

Kind regards,
Ulrich Kaffenberger
