Coaching Testimonial

Nate Loeffelholz, AIA, Director of Architecture

The PeopleFirst team has been an outstanding resource for our company’s executive search efforts. The resources they use, as a part of their search process, are among the best in the industry resources which have provided us with an excellent field of candidates for the positions we were filling. They take us through the development of the Ideal Candidate Profile and then their recruiting efforts are specifically targeted to fulfill our hiring needs. With their expert assistance we have recruited and hired into the VP, Director, and Supervisor levels of the organization. Fast, professional, results oriented, and friendly, that’s PeopleFirst!
