Austin understands that a great talent strategy is a key enabler of company strategy. He can both design a robust talent strategy and effectively deliver on it. He continues to be a trusted advisor to me on executive recruiting, organization design, talent development, employee communication and change management. I couldn’t have been successful in my roles as BU President or COO without him. He truly is a game changer.

Michael and his team spent the time necessary to get to know our company and our culture, and then tailored their search to deliver a truly stellar roster of candidates form-fitted to our specific needs. That small investment of time on their end saved a ton of time and effort on ours.

Michael successfully led two critical searches for my leadership team and I’m thrilled with the outcome. He was a true business partner throughout, putting in the time to understanding our story, listening to how I was trying to build my team and culture, while also pushing back appropriately. He was fully committed to getting a great outcome, and was an absolute pleasure to work with.

My company partnered with Michael at both Sapient and Endeca. In the recruiting and human resources fields, Michael is a rare visionary with a real passion for his work. For all the lipservice recruiting gets, the function is too often relegated to a business service and a cost center. Michael views recruiting as talent acquisition and human resources as human capital management. He understands that both are the lifeblood of business. In addition to being a pragmatic problem solver, Michael is an enthusiastic, engaging, and charismatic leader, one of the few 'executives' I have met in our industry that merit the title.
