Slumberland Furniture Testimonial
“It was the process of how Versique would take our search from start to finish that I connected with. And the phases that they articulated at the beginning when we were trying to select a search firm all played out.”
Kenny Larson, CEO
American Crystal Sugar Company Testimonial
“Versique brought two things that I expected and one that I didn’t. He supplied the expertise our board needed to do a very important and rather rare task. Their research and connections provided many qualified candidates, And, as a bonus, his guidance gave the board confidence. Their thoroughness and diligence were key to making the board feel confident that the process was professional and complete. I would not hesitate to call Versique again if the need arises.”
Robert Green, Board Chair
David Berg - President and CEO | American Crystal Sugar Company
"Versique recently assisted American Crystal Sugar Company in its search for a VP-Administration. Joe's practical business experience and ability to adapt to the unique circumstances surrounding our search led us to a very good result. This search was the first for Versique at American Crystal, but they've won a lot of supporters here. We continue to utilize Versique as a resource, and most likely will work with them in future engagements."
Christi Offutt - Chair| Offut Family Enterprises| CEO | RDO Equipment Co
"Before we began our CFO search, we looked for a partner who could help us navigate the process and ultimately deliver the best panel of candidates. Joe and the Versique team were a good fit to our company in regards to talent and culture and they delivered. I would recommend Versique as a search partner for other companies."
Greg Shwarz - Board Chairman | Heartland Corn Products
"Heartland has high expectations of all of our employees, especially key leaders. The professionals at Versique made the search process smooth, precise and successful. That's the way we like to do business."
