What our clients are saying about Heidi...
Chad Underwood - Vice President of Finance, Fourteen Foods
"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 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."
Bob Archambault - President, MME Group
"I just wanted to send Heidi a giant THANK YOU along with an email to express some of my thoughts. I so appreciate her professionalism, poise and ability to gather information in a big fat hurry. Heidi then jumped into action to vet and drive the right talent to us. Most of all, I loved how she listened to me, felt me out, were able to change gears quickly and continued to try to drive the
right solution for MME Group.
Heidi seemed to grasp me as a person and let me run with things at just the right time so as to get just the right candidate. I am pleased, super pleased, with the process she took me through and not only will use Heidi and Versique again, I will continue to think of her first when people come to me asking about jobs or placement services. Mostly I want to make sure she knows that I truly appreciated our working relationship and to let her know personally, how classy, professional and well organized I felt it went during the hiring process. Thank you for helping us with this critical hire."
Carol Scott - Chief Financial Officer, Slumberland Furniture
