Client Testimonials

John is an exemplary executive recruiter. He not only has passion for his corporate client’s needs, he does a great job evaluating, preparing, and positioning candidates. His attention to detail and professionalism make him a real standout in his industry.- Brad Bortner, Senior Strategy and Go-to-Market Expertise
Of the eight consultants I’m using during my career transition, John is the most professional. He is a great listener, very informed, and his networking has opened doors. I will continue to use his services and refer transitioning professionals to Downtown Recruiting. - Phillip Farrow, Area Manager
John is a recruiting executive with the highest integrity and desire to help others. I met John through PMI just after I moved back to the Boston area. John carefully listened to my job goals and helped me identify options. And even though he did not have a position for me via his firm, he introduced me to the HR Director at another consulting firm. This introduction resulted in a strong consulting position well suited to my strengths and goals. - Adrienne Keane, PMP/MAPP Director Program Management
John is extremely professional and very knowledgable. He is rare recruiter who knows his stuff as well as understands the nitty gritty details of the job you have applied for. - Atul Dubal, Product Manager (Big Data) | MIT SDM Fellow
