“Centerstone’s process is a unique and effective approach to filling key leadership roles. We partnered with the Centerstone team on a critical officer level search and they killed it on timeliness, candidate fit, process and cost effectiveness. In a very short timeframe, we met interesting and qualified candidates and we were able to fill the role with someone who has already proven to be a great fit for us. While fast, this process was also very thorough as it was highly personalized and intensive. Centerstone was laser focused on getting the right profile, locating the right candidates, and removing obstacles that normally protract the search process. The team used information based on technology, industry references and skilled assessments all of which sped the process along and produced a narrow field of excellent candidates. Collaboration and frequent and focused communication kept things moving which worked well for us and for the candidates. We couldn’t be happier with the end result achieved by this innovative and results-oriented approach to executive search.”
