“Jim confidentially recruited a new President for the Americas Region of my company. I talked to a previous colleague in another industry sector who recruited an American President for his company a while ago and he recommended me to get in touch with Kuhn Global Talent in Ohio. I went over and met with Jim and quickly developed trust in him. He found and presented three solid candidates to me within a short time, and I selected one of them who had previous experience in our type of industry. Even with the challenges that COVID-19 has presented, we successfully hired a uniquely well qualified individual.”
