Michael Arbaugh, Candidate

“I’d like to recommend the Executive Search firm of Direct Recruiters Inc (DRI). I recently had the pleasure of working with them as they represented me in a search. Working with both Michael Silverstein and Stephen Benson was a great experience. What first impressed me is how they listened and really got to know me. They understood what I was looking for. Next, working with Stephen and his ability to articulate my strengths and value to prospective companies was critical. Ensuring that I was well aligned with what the prospective company was looking for. Last, having a team that sticks with you (my search took 5 months) and helps provide insights and guidance along the way was invaluable. Five weeks into my new role and I’m still in touch with Michael and Stephen as they are interested in making sure that my new role starts off strong.”

Stephanie Trowbridge, Candidate

“I’ve enjoyed working with Stephen, as he brought a wonderful opportunity to my attention. He knew I would be a great fit for a new role at Xealth. He is an excellent communicator and made sure I was informed throughout the process. I felt like I could contact him with any questions and he always was able to get me the answers to help me feel reassured. I have worked with many recruiters in the past, who have been great; Stephen is definitely highly recommended.”

F.C. – Candidate

“As someone who does not change positions often, I rely on professionals to properly market my skills and prepare me for the change. Stephanie was the consummate professional through the process of my last career change. Stephanie was very helpful in every step of the process – from resume enhancement to social media exposure to interview prep, Stephanie guided me through the maze. She was always available to me before, during, and after the process. I couldn’t give a more positive recommendation for the work Stephanie did for me. Thanks again, Stephanie!”

Chris Riddle, Senior Account Executive – Leidos Health

There is an art to recruiting and Alexa is a master in her field. First she listened to ensure she understood my goals and objectives. Then she provided accurate details about a role and a company that aligned well with myself. Finally, she did all of this with solid and timely follow-up while offering feedback along the way to make sure my new role was the right role. I highly recommend that you share your story with Alexa as well.”

Mike Patrick, Ability Network

“Stephanie provides a great service. She is direct, professional and makes good candidate recommendations. She understands the dynamic nature of our business and partners well within our process.”

T.B. – Candidate

“I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for opportunities in the Healthcare Technology space. She is a true professional and communicates effectively and timely to ensure we are on the same page. Changing roles can be stressful, but Stephanie was there throughout the entire process and made sure all of my questions were answered. She wanted the best for me and that was made clear by her actions – not just her words.”

Nicole Rogas, Senior Vice President, Sales – Experian Health

“As a sales leader, I get approached often by recruiters claiming they can bring me the best talent on the market. At Experian Health, when we hire new sales associates we take a lot of time and care in the hiring process. We invest significantly in our team during onboarding so making the wrong hire can set us back. We also protect our culture, which is one of high performance, teamwork and authenticity. Consistently, time and time again, Mike and Direct Recruiters have brought me candidates that are not only top industry talent but also fit right into the culture we work so hard to maintain. I would recommend Direct Recruiters as your hiring partner to anyone who asks.”

Claude Hooton, President & Chief Operating Officer – NucleusHealth

“I’ve recently used Direct Recruiters for three very important strategic searches and they have delivered great candidates every time. In the specialized niches of healthcare IT, it is very challenging to find executives who have the combination of domain expertise along with excellent management skills. In each search, Mike and Steve were able to provide exceptional candidates who had exactly what we were looking for. They took the time to carefully understand our specific needs so that they used our time efficiently by only providing introductions that were a good fit. In my 25 years of operating experience, I have worked with many executive search firms and I would put the healthcare team at Direct Recruiters at the top.”

R.W., Candidate

“I am now three weeks into my dream job and it is everything I hoped it would be. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for Steve’s help.

Throughout the process of landing my new position, Steve was an invaluable aid. First, he found a warm introduction to the CEO of the company I wanted to pursue. Then, throughout the process of landing the position, he and the staff he works with provided support at every step of the way while still recognizing my expertise and the fact that I needed to make the final decisions on how to proceed.

If you are an executive looking for a move, I would highly encourage you to reach out to Steve, you will be glad you did.”

HR Director – Voalte

“Norm has assisted us in finding a number of positions; including several of our ASMs, our Director of Operations and our VP of Sales. The VP role is a key position that leads and creates a great deal of our company’s success, hence it was especially complex and he delivered exactly what we needed. Norm has been a critical resource in finding great talent in a very specialized industry for us. Since my first conversation with him, I knew he was a true collaborator, he was extremely well-connected in the industry, and he understood the importance of confidentiality. Norm continued to educate me on key items in the industry and always had time to discuss thoughts on a candidate, brainstorm ideas, and determine the most effective offer. He not only focuses on the details of the job, but the culture and personality that will be successful. We always felt like a top priority working with Norm and I can’t recommend Norm enough for organizations looking to partner with a recruiter to find candidates that fit the role, culture and compensation.”
