"Jim did a great job recruiting top notch candidates for me under high pressure circumstances. He was asked to find multiple skill sets across multiple locations and was unfazed by the task.
Jim is professional and efficient and did a great job of providing a short list of carefully vetted candidates that were all well suited for the positions in question. He is agressive and very much takes ownership of your problem, I recommend him highly if you need to recruit high level candidates."

"As a venture capital investor, I have worked with a lot of Executive Recruiters, but none better than Jim Gleason. We engaged Jim to conduct executive searches for a Vice President of Human Resources, a Controller, a Chief Marketing Officer, and a Chief Financial Officer for a fast growth, internet education company in Chicago and Toronto. We hired great talent. All searches were completed in under 90 days and at a cost that was less than expected. Jim is a real pro."

“I have known Jim Gleason for approximately 20 years through three different companies including Wilson Sporting Goods and Swift Eckrich, in addition to his own search pratice. Jim is an extremely competent executive recruiter. He has the keen insight from being on the "inside" of corporate America and understands the internal working environment and the dynamics of a company. He is someone I wouldn't hesitate to call on if I had an appropriate need for his services. I would recommend Jim without hesitation."

“As a long time member of the Chicago HR community I have utilized Jim’s organization to fill a variety of needs, in many disciplines, for the various companies with which I have been associated. In my current role as the SVP of HR for TreeHouse Foods Jim partnered with me to staff our HR organization. We filled 6 key positions resulting in an outstanding team. Jim and I worked together in our early HR careers in the 70’s and 80’s. He has a deep knowledge of manufacturing and distribution companies, employs a very disciplined approach in his recruiting work, and has the highest degree of integrity."
