  • Gary was fantastic to work with. Not only did he connect me up with my ideal opportunity, he worked with me through the recruitment process to make sure that I was completely prepared to put forth my best in interviews, to facilitate communication, and to advocate for me as a candidate. His energy, enthusiasm and professionalism make working with him both productive and enjoyable. I could not have been more apprised of what was going on at all times, and it was great to have someone cheering for me when I got my offer. Thanks for all of your help, Gary!
