We have a simple principle guiding everything we do at KGT: good recruiting is relationship-based. We mean it when we say working with us means entering into a true partnership. You’ll find a partner who is truly committed, day in and day out, to actively listening to your goals, priorities, and recruitment needs. You’ll find a partner who views your success as their success and provides real collaboration and advice every step of the way.

You won’t find a partner who disappears after the search is completed and the fee is paid. We help plan and ensure that on-boarding as well as internal and external communications are optimized and remain in contact to provide coaching and other support.

TESTIMONIALS

President

“Jim recruited most of the commercial and technical positions located outside the USA for my company from 2011 to 2016 when the company was spun off of the parent company. We relied on Jim like he was an employee. His commitment, trustworthiness, and results make him someone I continue to partner with. I recently engaged Jim to lead the talent management component of an acquisition project for my Private Equity firm.”

“Jim has been an exceptional partner with our organization; he took the time to understand our organization and needs to be able to provide us with candidates who were clear fits for our needs, finding candidates for high-level domestic and international roles. He went above and beyond to ensure that both my company, and our candidates, were cared for. If you are seeking a partner who is committed, responsive, and effective–I highly recommend Jim.”

Chief Administrative Officer

“A friend of mine from another company recommended Jim to me during a discussion we were having about my company’s need to confidentially recruit a new Asia Pacific Director of Sales & Marketing. Jim had recruited similar positions for my friend’s company. Jim was very patient with me as it took several months for us to decide to launch the search. Jim found a needle in the haystack for us. The candidate was based in Australia and the position was to be based near Shanghai. Jim’s greatest value was his ability to attract passive candidates and sell them on the opportunity. We engaged Jim on several more searches in North America and in Belgium, and will continue to rely upon him in the future.”
