Former President & CEO of a $1.2B Midwest bank

“It is very rare that a consultant builds a relationship to the point that they are a true partner.  And that is exactly what Tom Blackwell and Angott Search Group have done with me and my former organization.  I was amazed at his knowledge and insight into banking and especially his ability to understand how bankers think and make decisions. Tom’s caring and thorough approach are refreshing and his ability to maneuver through the different personalities and agendas within the top of the bank to establish the must-haves of the desired candidate is unequaled. Tom Blackwell is a true business partner and his desire to help move our business forward, sometimes without personal gain, is why he and Angott Search Group are the only search group we will use.  Tom has had a tireless dedication to our firm as a client and has fulfilled every search for which we have utilized his firm.  It is a privilege to call Tom a partner and friend.”
