Chris Offutt - Chair, Offutt Family Companies
"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 for our company in regard to talent and culture they delivered. I would recommend Versique as a search partner for other companies."
Tom Votel - President and CEO, Ergodyne
"We have a long standing relationship with Versique but have yet to use Joe’s team - until now. For our CFO search Joe and his team were thoughtful, thorough and communicated actively with us along the journey. We had several fine options, yet Joe was instrumental in flushing out the correct choice for our unique culture and requirements. Bottom line: we got ourselves a winner thanks to Joe."
Caitlin Gschneidner - Talent Acquisition Business Partner, Vascular Solutions
"I recently turned to Heidi for recruitment assistance on a high-level hire. I wanted to work with someone I could trust and who I knew would put forth the best effort in securing the right candidate for our organization. Heidi exceeded my expectations! Her approach is thoughtful and thorough. She is diligent in her candidate intake and evaluation process as reflected by the quality of candidates she sent me. I would not hesitate to work with Heidi again in the future. She is an excellent external resources for Finance and Accounting hires."
Chad Underwood - Vice President of Finance & Accounting, Aspirity Energy
"I was both recruited by Heidi and then was able to partner with Heidi in a search for an open position in my group. She’s one of the best recruiters I have worked with in the past and look forward to working with her in the future. Both being recruited by, and having her recruit for me was a great experience. She was (appropriately) transparent and forthcoming, but never oversold a role or a candidate to try and move the process along. She was always well prepared and prompt in all of our interactions. I would highly recommend using Heidi and the Versique team on any upcoming searches."
Nisheet Gupta - Vice President of Finance Operations, Land O Lakes
"Dee is a passionate and detail oriented search partner. She takes her search very seriously and makes you feel that she is exclusively working for you. We gave her a very difficult search assignment for Land O' Lakes and she delivered results despite the search being long as we are looking for a specific profile in a particular industry in a relatively tight job market. I would recommend Dee to anyone looking for an exclusive search journey along with passion that only your own teams can usually bring."
Jim Stelton - Partner, BerganKDV
"Joe helped us with a very difficult search for a Tax Director. What I appreciate is he sought to truly understand our culture - values, vision and philosophies. He provided council and support to our successful candidate to align his values and philosophies with ours through numerous interviews over an extended period of time. I’d retain Joe for another difficult search, he’s substantive and a good guy!"
Robert Green - Board Chair, American Crystal Sugar Company
"Joe 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. His research and connections provided many qualified candidates. And, as a bonus, his guidance gave the board confidence. His thoroughness and diligence were key to making the board feel confident that the process was professional and complete. I would not hesitate to call Joe again if the need arises."
