Joe Giacomin does his homework to get to know the profile the client is looking for and then he provided great value by filtering candidates and setting up a series of meetings with only the top fits. He is more personable than other recruiters I’ve worked with.

– VP of Marketing, Public Relations & Government of a Worldwide Aftermarkets Parts Supplier

Joe has a keen ability to match a client’s needs and culture with potential candidates’ requirements and personalities. He is a true professional and car guy who is thorough and keeps apprised of the automotive industry’s trends as well as anyone. Has 40 plus years of experience and has adapted well to the ever-changing search and recruiting strategies that have evolved in the industry.

– Account Manager, World’s Leading Diversified Manufacturers of Specialized Industrial Equipment

I have worked with Don DeLaura since early 2015 on two search engagements. Both positions proved to be very challenging international placements in our global sales organization. His keen insight to understand the company culture and my expectations resulted in the hiring of two highly qualified sales managers for our Japanese and European operations. Don handled the interview process deftly and provided a plethora of candidates to choose from. Both engagements were efficiently concluded in a very short period of time. Don is a consummate professional in the field of executive search and I would highly recommend him.

– EVP, Business Development, Top global automotive manufacturing enterprise
