“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.”
“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.”
“Working with Mike and Steve at Direct Recruiters exceeded my expectations. We have successfully worked with Direct Recruiters in the past and our CEO had a prior relationship with them. They have known us for a long time and really get our culture. Mike and Steve assisted us in filling the Regional Director of Sales role in a difficult geographical territory; they provided a number of candidates, of which we ultimately hired one. I was most pleased with the DRI teams’s communication style along with the detail they provided with their resume submissions, and their professionalism. They vet candidates thoroughly and to the specifications provided, they are extremely responsive, and they are very up front and honest. DRI is top notch as far as a recruitment agency – I would recommend them in a heartbeat. I truly hope to watch them succeed and will definitely engage them again if/when needed.”
“Mike is a refreshing example of the best in executive talent acquisition and HealthIT consulting. He genuinely cares for the people he works with, the clients he represents, and the outstanding candidates he always delivers. Mike grasps the nuances of the Healthcare market, and understands the differences and industry skills required to be successful in device, service, or software focused organizations. As a leader, Mike has assembled an equally impressive team who provide outstanding and consistent client service, follow-up, and keen insights into potential candidates. You will find every interaction with Mike an enjoyable and learning experience!”
Mike and Kasey, it was a pleasure partnering with Direct Recruiters on our recent search for a sales executive. I have worked with many search firms in the past and Direct Recruiters stands out from the others in so many ways.
• You provide responsive, personal service.
• You submitted high quality and sufficient number of excellent candidates.
• You were persistent through a lengthy and difficult recruitment.
Thank you for the hard work your outstanding team dedicated to our search. We won’t hesitate to utilize your services again in the future when the need arises.
“I want to thank you again for your assistance over the past year in helping eHealth Technologies identify candidates for our sales team expansion. We could not be more pleased with the people we selected from the diverse pool of candidates you provided. Throughout the entire process the support and guidance provided by you and your team was essential to filling our positions in a timely manner. I look forward to working on future expansions with you as well.”
“When I joined athenahealth, I had a difficult time finding a trusted partner to use as an outside resource in assisting my search efforts for high-level, niche positions until I started working with Mike Silverstein and his team at Direct Recruiters. They work smart to identify top talent and continue to deliver the caliber and quality of candidates that we are looking to hire. Mike and his team successfully identified two star candidates for Director-level roles that we would never have found had it not been for the time, energy, and highly qualified team at Direct Recruiters. They are an exceptional group and a trusted extension of our recruiting arm here at athenahealth that I would highly recommend to any organization looking for an expert in the field of talent recruitment. In my opinion they are the whole package.”
“It is with great pleasure that I fully endorse the work of Mike Silverstein. He has been instrumental in helping us quickly locate great talent, those individuals who not only have
the requisite skill sets but those rare individuals who possess the soft skills, teamwork orientation, and passion for what they do. Unlike many recruiters, I never felt like Mike put his interests above mine
in trying to ‘force a fit’ or convince me to accept someone that I didn’t feel was an optimal match. In recruiting high talent, it is important to me to work with a true professional where complete collaboration and urgency exists. I also have the piece of mind in knowing that if I need Mike and his team to help me during negotiations, I fully trust them to execute in this critical area.
In this new economy especially within a small growing business, we are trying to do more with less. Finding great partners who are skilled at what they do, deliver results, and operate with complete transparency and integrity are difficult to find. I feel like I have found this with Mike. I hesitate to offer this recommendation only because he’s a rare find and for selfish reasons I hope he never becomes too busy to find time for my next search.”
“We have partnered with Mike and Direct Recruiters since fall 2008 to find outside sales talent. Mike has been great to work with. He quickly learned all the nuances of what we were looking for in sales talent and does not waste our time with mediocre candidates. He does not try to oversell candidates to us like some recruiters do; he respects our decisions and uses those decisions to narrow in on the ideal candidates for us. He is a true professional with high energy and a strong drive to meet clients’ needs. I highly recommend Mike!”
“I’ve had the opportunity to work with many recruiters and typically avoid them. I’ve made an exception for Mike (Silverstein) who’s the lead Healthcare IT recruiter for Direct Recruiters. Mike is a collaborative partner that produced multiple high quality candidates for my consideration. He offers an unbiased assessment and never tried to force a fit or make a deal. He’s genuine and acts with long term interest in mind. I consider Mike a valued, strategic resource.”
