Gerald Willis, Product Manager of Nuvo & On-Q Audio at Legrand, North America

“I’ve had a habit of ignoring notes from recruiters in the past. However, with Leo’s area of expertise, I thought a conversation might be interesting and responded to his first note. We had a great first chat and I finished that with the expectation that I might hear something back in a month or two depending on the opportunities that came up. Surprisingly Leo was able to present an opening that was a perfect fit for me the next day! He did a great job arranging details and getting me prepared for interviews. Leo was very capable of making sure that I had what I needed at each stage and ultimately helped me land my new position, which I am enjoying very much!”

R.H. – Candidate

“I highly recommend Leo’s services. Great coaching, advice and encouragement through the whole application process. I have recommended him to both candidates and employers. He treats his people like gold. We were complete strangers when he contacted me but he treated me like I was the most important client in the world.”

J.O. – Candidate

“Leo is passionate and dedicated. He worked diligently through the entire process of matching me to an employer’s position, advocating on my behalf, guiding me, coaching me, supporting me, and closing the deal with the employer. I have never had an experience with a recruiter that was as personal, complete, and valuable as I did working with Leo. I owe him tremendous gratitude.”

Steve Protz, Candidate

“Top Notch Recruiter. Having spent a number of years in the field, I tend to expect more from the recruiters I work with. Kelly was heads above the ones I had talked and worked with. She was not just about making the placement but trying to find the right match for the company and candidate. I highly recommend working with her.”

James Burns, Candidate

“I was so fortunate to connect with Kelly! Within minutes of messaging her she introduced me to 5 opportunities that were all great fit. By the next day I had two phone interviews set up. I can’t say enough positives things about my experience with Kelly. If you’re looking at exploring a new career, start with Kelly!”

S.S. – Candidate

Leo is a great advocate and true professional. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with him.

I would welcome any new opportunities Leo may come across in the future, and certainly look forward to working with him again.

T.S. – Candidate

“Leo is an incredible recruiter who genuinely has his clients’ best interests at heart. During the course of my job search Leo was resourceful, hard-working, technically inclined, and incredibly supportive throughout the process. I feel fortunate to have crossed paths with Leo and would recommend him / DRI to anyone considering new career opportunities within the world of Industrial Automation.”

Franco DeBlasio, CEO – Clear Automation

“Working with DRI’s Direct Retention program and services exceeded my expectations. What I was most pleased with was the fact that DRI did not inundate me with candidates. They kept me out of the process until the very end. At that point it was very clear that DRI had a handful of qualified candidates. That helped me optimize my time utilization, which was the most important thing from a process perspective. The second most important thing in this process was that DRI was able to do this in the timeframe we agreed on. Compared to other recruiters, DRI actually did the real work of screening candidates instead of just spending 6 weeks e-mailing me 3 times a day with resumes. I wanted someone who would provide the HR function of a true skilled recruiting effort, and DRI did a great job with that. I would and already have recommended DRI’s Direct Retention program and services to others.”

J.B. – Candidate

“DRI might be the most professional group I’ve ever worked with; and when we will be growing and hiring, DRI will be my first call when that time comes.”

It has been a pleasure working with Mr. Dave Bevington, having connected with Dave mid 2016, he helped me through a process with which I had become unfamiliar. Specificity, finding a career opportunity with a hightech company.

Dave (with great professionalism) provided materials that would assist in making an impression with future employers, as one who had vast experience in the Motion Control segment (a highly technical and competitive industry), Dave enabled me to stand out from the crowd. He provided opportunities consistent with the needs we discussed. Dave would be efficient in his communications prior and post interview, helping me through each stage and ever willing to spend some time with me when questions and advice was needed

Thanks to Dave , he placed me with one of the companies I have admired for more than two decades. His ability to get me an interview was based on his relationship with the employer. In the contemporary world of business, it is refreshing to experience this hands on relationship with a professional that has both your and the employers needs at the forefront.

Dave negotiated on my behalf, with each successful interview, his preparation skills and foreknowledge of the process kept my mind at ease to focus on the task at hand.

My final interview was in NOV ’16, and I will never forget sitting in the hotel, awaiting a meeting with the President of this High Tech Company. My phone rang and it was Dave with last second words of encouragement.

Within an hour it was a privilege to call  Dave and inform him of OUR success in acquiring this fantastic career opportunity.

It is with pleasure, I recommend Mr. Dave Bevington as a partner in locating your next career move, whether Corporate Executive, Engineer, Professional Sales, Mr. Bevington will be with you all the way.
