Former Vice-President, Pfingsten Partners, LLC

Larry Taylor
“Alta Search actually works for the client! Ed and Barbara may operate a private business but when you become their client that team truly works for you! The Alta team is organized, responsive, adaptive and resourceful. They deliver on their commitments to their clients. Alta Search Group is our preferred search firm and partner in talent acquisition.”

SVP Product & Channel Management FireKing Security Group

John Rhoads
“Alta Search Group was the perfect partner for us. Ed and Barbara took the time to understand our company culture and the really specific demands of the role we were searching to fill. They took on a challenge of filling a role that others told us was “unfillable”, and not only presented to us a number of qualified candidates, but also partnered with us to find the one that was the best fit for our culture. Hands down, they are the best Executive Search firm I’ve used. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

CEO & President ZSi-Foster

Rick Stepien

“Alta Search Group has been a great partner in helping us recruit top talent. In the past I have been disappointed with the work of several search firms we have been engaged with but Ed and Barbara are different. They are experienced pro’s with a proven approach which involved getting to know our company and culture first and only then then diving into the exact role we needed fill. Most importantly they laid out a plan, followed the timeline they committed to and kept us informed every step of the way. In each case we have been presented with several qualified candidates allowing us the luxury of choosing the right person based on not only technical skill but more importantly culture and fit. I enthusiastically recommended Ed and Barbara as they have become trusted advisors to our business.”

Former CEO Cast Nylons Limited

Mark Sullivan

.“As President/CEO, I hired Alta Search to fill key leadership team roles.  They distinguished themselves with the speed of their actions, the quality of the candidate pool they developed, and the impact of the hire they helped me make. Their process developed candidates specific to my needs vs. canvasing job-seekers already in the market.  In both cases, Alta Search met all of my desired outcomes, particularly finding candidates that were local, minimizing transition time and expense.  I plan to continue to use them as my preferred recruiting organization.”

Managing Director, Pfingsten Partners, LLC

Denio Bolzan
“Alta Search is a hands-on, team based, responsive organization who doesn’t just get a client and then delegate the search assignment; Ed and Barbara actually do it. They are 100% vested in you and the search process working with you to understand your needs and expectations. The search is completed timely and more importantly they find the right candidate. We view Alta Search Group as a partner.”
