“Besides the strong talent pool, I perhaps valued most their ability to be true consultants with whom I could mentally spar about the structure and the overall industry… I can strongly say you’re considering the right firm.”
“We could not be more delighted in the process. The search was rigorous, organized, thorough, and efficient. Nolan Partners’ management of the search committee and the board was immaculate. We could not be more enthused with our selection. Diversity was obviously just as important to them as it was to us. We were also impressed with their geographic breadth: Nolan Partners attracted and assessed candidates in the US, UK, Europe, and Australia. I highly recommend Nolan Partners for your next search.”
