“In connection with my recruitment process, I have had a close dialogue with Corey. And based on this experience, I can only give my best recommendation for Corey.”

Claus Hugo Frykman

Global Sales Manager, Onset Data Loggers

Adam Dowson has completed a number of assignments for UPS resulting in key appointments that have added real commercial value to our team and had a great cultural fit. The first candidate Spencer Riley placed with UPS involved an international relocation and they managed the process very effectively, maintaining clear communication between the candidate and our business functions.
