– President & CEO of a $4.8 Billion Michigan Credit Union

Since I had been out of the finance industry in Michigan for a few years, I presented a unique challenge to JT Westendorf about my reentry into the state and the industry. JT gladly accepted the challenge. The best part about working with JT is his patient attention to the details of the placement process. JT kept an open line of communication open throughout the entire search and was patient to find the right financial institution to fit my skill set and location choices. I never felt “pressured” to take an interview or complete an application that was not a good fit for me and my next career move. I would highly recommend JT to guide anyone through his or her next transition.

Thank you to Lisa and the ASG team for finding me the “right role” as I made a big transition from the Washington, D.C. Metro area back to Jacksonville, FL. It truly was, and is still the right fit! When I started, there were so many operational and system/similarities from my former CU that in itself, helped me make a run-and-jump start once I began! Thanks again for assisting me in finding my new “career home”.

A few months ago, Pam contacted me on LinkedIn about a leadership position for a credit union client. Recognizing my fit for the role, I decided to explore the opportunity. Pam’s professionalism, kindness, and thorough guidance throughout the process made me grateful for the connection. Thanks to her insights into the client’s needs, I secured the position.
In a world where many businesses rely on technology to identify qualified candidates to interview, it was great to have an actual person reach out to me on behalf of the client, and as a result, I got an interview, that led to an offer. Thank you for having great people like Pam Rank on your team!

– Candidate Experience

Lisa Burroughs’ strong connections in the Bay Area (I am from Hawaii and did not have any contacts) and engagement/responsiveness throughout the process were critical in my being hired as CFO of my organization. Her extensive knowledge of the Bay Area and its organizations provided me with critical information that I would not be able to obtain myself (e.g. executive team, board, culture, etc.) which paved the way to a productive interview while being a great sounding board when I needed advice. I truly feel that Lisa is a great strategic partner and has a long-term view to ensure there is a good fit for both sides which is a win-win in my books! We have continued to remain in touch, and I know I can count on her for any future needs. I would highly recommend Lisa in a heartbeat!

– Chief Financial Officer for a $1.2 Billion California Credit Union

Pam, thank you so much for your help in the interview process. I truly appreciate your attentiveness, honesty, and advice through every step.

We have been working with Mark Angott and his team at Angott Search Group for several years. Their knowledge of our organization, our culture, and overall connectedness to our industry is invaluable. From the get-go, ASG was approachable as they listened to our questions and were insightful and well-informed in their responses. They did the due diligence required to present us with right-fit finalists in a timely and constructive manner, showing that they understood our priorities, our long-term goals, and who we are as a credit union. It is very rare that a consultant builds a relationship to the point that they are a true partner. Moving forward, they will be our go-to agency. I highly recommend ASG to my colleagues in the financial services industry.

– President & CEO of a $2 Billion Michigan Credit Union

I want to acknowledge Pam Rank for the amazing experience I had working with her. From our first conversation I knew I was in good hands. Thank you for taking the time to help prepare me for the interview and your willingness to assist with my resignation process. The tips that you sent were truly helpful with gathering my thoughts. My experience was nothing short of amazing.

JT and Angott Search Group have been a trusted partner of ours, supporting us with several senior hires in recent years. ASG understands our needs and the importance of finding the right fit, both culturally and in skillset. Every hire made with their assistance has made a positive impact on our mission.

– President & CEO of a $3.2 billion credit union

I wanted you to know just how grateful I am for everything Pamela Rank has done. I believe she deserves more than just a thank you.
My experience with Pam as my recruiter was exceptional. I was very impressed with her approach and reaching out to me. Her approach was more than just getting job done. It was a complete pleasure to talk about the position with her and she is definitely an experienced recruiter who enjoys her job. Pam is an outstanding friendly recruiter who went over and above to get the job done and found me the right job. I would recommend her to anyone who is out there looking for new job.

I have had the pleasure of working with the ASG team to fill financial professional positions for more than 20 years, but it wasn’t until I was the direct beneficiary of their services that I truly understood the extent of their expertise and network. Any recruiter can collect and push resumes, but ASG has proven time and time again the extra value of assessing both qualifications and fit so candidates and hiring managers are most successful.
