Kelly M.: Private Equity Firm
One of the best search partners we work with. Honest, timely, and focused on the outcome which is best for our firm/teams. Awesome team! Love any opportunity I have to partner with Russ & team. You are one-of-a-kind!
Hugh A. Shields: Shields Meneley Partners
I have to disagree that hiring these exec admins is “the hardest thing to do” – not when you have the Larko Group helping you! Thanks for your help with finding Katherine – she seems to be doing well onboarding.
Steven Tonkinson: Sipi Metals
My experience while working with The Larko Group was terrific, as usual. Annette has worked with us for years and The Larko Group is the best of the agencies we used for our search by far! There is nothing that I would change about the placement process and I have referred your services to many of my colleagues as I assume that The Larko Group treats all clients the same, which is good. Annette has been great to work with, especially as we used another agency that sent us 10 candidates while Annette sent us 3. Our final choice was between 3 of your competitor’s candidates and 2 of The Larko Group’s candidates. Well done!!!
Erica Rimsky: The Pritzker Group
My experience with The Larko Group was truly impeccable. Russ persistently sought out candidates to present to us over the course of several weeks. He did not give up and eventually found us the perfect fit. Russ truly “got” what we were looking for. He completely understands the culture of our company and sought out candidates that would align with that. I appreciated his honesty and candor throughout our search. The candidates were pretty good. The position we were trying to fill was a bit unique, as it was a hybrid of both an assistant and event coordinator. That being said, trying to fill both shoes was a bit tough. I would absolutely refer TLG to other staffing colleagues. Russ was extremely responsive and communicative which is key when trying to obtain proper feedback from both parties in a timely manner. We had 5 search firms screening candidates for us and hired through TLG.
Tom Fitzpatrick: US Equities
My overall experience with The Larko Group was good. We had a tough search that was full of challenges and they understood our needs and expectations very well. The candidate that we hired was by far the best of all of the candidates that were presented. I would highly recommend The Larko Group to other staffing colleagues because I think they have a good grasp of the candidate market.
Carrie Raffin: Water Street
Russ, Andrea and the whole Larko team do a great job. They understand our business and the type of people who will succeed in our industry. We have had several excellent hires who have worked out tremendously.
Mary Secrist: Madison Dearborn Partners
As the Office Manager here at Madison Dearborn Partners I wear many hats, but thanks to the Larko Group I don’t have to wear my hiring hat very often.
Since we began using The Larko Group in 1995, you have helped us to practically eliminate our administrative turnover. Many of the talented people you have placed with us have been here for several years now, and have proved to be valuable and productive assets to our organization.
Russ, you have shown a clear understanding of our corporate culture as well as our skill set requirements. You always send me top quality candidates, you never waste my time, and you are quick and responsive to meet our staffing needs.
Thank you for helping me attract and retain a talented and stable administrative team here at Madison Dearborn Partners; it’s a pleasure working with you and your staff!
