What our family-owned business clients are saying…

“I have worked with many recruiters over the course of my career and, I can say, NONE have matched Steve’s level of professionalism and thoroughness.”

Eric Lindquist – President | EDCO Products

“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.”
