George Cunningham, Director of Business Development – Riviera Partners

“Consummate professional: Steve and his colleagues changed my mind about HIT recruiters from negative to positive. From initial contact all the way through, Steve was tuned in to my implicit and explicit requirements for a position. He was always genuinely interested in my priorities, and the ideal job match. Steve’s ability to listen and provide advice with the right amount of touch-points make him an ideal person to match employers with talented employees.”

Adam Becker, Sr. Director – EvaluatePharma USA, Inc.

“I had the pleasure of working with Steve in my career search and I highly recommend him to any company looking to hire or individual looking to get hired. I truly found Steve to be a high-value partner in representing me in my career search. Steve is knowledgeable, transparent, and focused on making sure that an opportunity was a good fit with my requirements. Steve provided me high value opinions, thoughts, and recommendations and together we executed on a strategy which enabled me to become employed with a great company. Steve is a true professional!”

Camille Sendlak, Marketing – Audmedics

“Steve was by far the most engaged recruiter I have ever worked with and it was always a pleasure to speak with him! He continually follows up on both ends, and always makes sure that all questions are answered. He is genuine and personable, and I am so thankful that he helped to find me the job I have always wanted! Even after starting the job, he still checks in to see how things are going, which I really appreciate! Thank you Steve for all of your help!”

Victor Lopez, Implementation Lead – TytoCare

“Stephen guided me and helped me with my current position at the new company. From the beginning, Stephen’s professionalism was at full display when he first contacted me. He always listened to what I wanted to do next and what I was looking for. He never seemed to be too “aggressive” in a sense that had me to believe that this was just another quota/ goal for him to get a commission. Stephen was also very thorough throughout the whole process. He made sure all my questions were answered and I always knew what was the next step in the interview process. Overall, Stephen served as a great resource in my job search. I would definitely recommend him to any company searching for some help with recruiting.”

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.”

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.”

Hayley Hodge, Candidate

“Steve did a fantastic job working with me on placement. His follow-up and communication skills ensured I found a role that was suited to my professional needs and his astute assessment of personalities further sealed my role in my current company.”

Kelli Crook, Candidate

“Working with Steve has been an exceptional experience. He is very professional and has been a wonderful resource throughout the entire hiring process. He builds comradery and lasting relationships with his clients. He continues to keep in touch and has made my transition into this new role as seamless and comfortable as possible. The customer service I received was far above expectations.”
