“Mark worked tirelessly in support of my efforts to secure not only a new opportunity, but more importantly the ‘right’ professional path for this point in my career journey. Mark was a trusted adviser who provided valuable advice and counsel throughout my job search process. He went above and beyond to take time to truly understand my strengths, talents and aspirations. Leveraging that information, he designed a search plan that afforded me the ability to focus on opportunities that aligned with my goals. What I appreciated most in working with Mark was his candor, his willingness to really listen to his client, and his supportive nature. Mark is a true partner in every sense of the word, and in a time when you feel most vulnerable, Mark was always there to reassure, support and at times just to be there as a friend. Beyond his ethical and professional approach, those aforementioned characteristics are what every job seeker truly need from their recruiting partner. For all of these reasons, I would highly recommend Mark for any professional looking for a career reboot, outplacement support or just a fresh start.”

John Horvath, Milwaukee Site Manager, Operations & Client Services at EQ by Equiniti

“I have worked with Mark for over ten years. Whenever I have needed to add talent to my organization, Mark would quickly identify a short list of candidates prescreened for the opportunity based on skills, experience, desire, and culture fit. Mark’s hires have gone on to become professional and personal friends for many years. If you are having difficulty finding talent, I highly recommend you speak to Mark about your hiring requirements.”

Mark R. Schultze, COO at PerformanceG2, Inc (Business Intelligence Solutions Provider)

“Over 20 years ago, I worked with Mark Rowbottom while I was with Aldrich Chemical, early in my HR career. Fast forward, Mark connected with Dorner Mfg. Corp. at the right time. We had two critical positions open in our IT department and had unsuccessfully used several different recruiters to help us get the positions filled. In early September I met with Mark and his recruiter and by the end of the month one of the positions was filled. Mark and his team have been great to work with, professional, timely and great communication. I know where to turn next time we have an IT need!”

Karen Wolf SPHR, Human Resources Manager at Dorner Manufacturing Corporation

“Mark has done a great job bringing in high quality candidates in timely fashion. We initially started with several other firms and had no results for several months. Due to the growing importance of filling our position, we engaged Mark to help us fill our role. Rather than just shuffle paper, he wanted to understand the business, understand our needs and requirements and even made a couple of trips to our warehouses to see how the company functions.

Mark is extremely well prepared and proactively shares his candidate backlog, candidate status and thoroughly understands his candidates. This has helped us in planning, as well as the candidate, since they have a better idea of expectations and the type of company they are going to be joining. I have no reservation in recommending Mark due to his commitment, work ethic and results. He has been great to work with and look forward to working with him in the future.”

Donald Hook, Chief Technology Officer at The Boelter Companies, Inc.
