“I’ve had the pleasure to work with Bill Siegel for the past several years in several different capacities and properties. Bill has helped me successfully staff several key executive positions when our in-house teams simply hit a roadblock.
Bill is one of a select few in the executive recruiting realm that has really produced when asked. The candidates he surfaces are all thoroughly checked and he always provides detailed references on each and every candidate he surfaces. Additionally, he ensures he is looking for each and every nuance we’ve asked for in a candidate and often times making it difficult to choose a single candidate based on the talent pool he surfaces.
Bill also keeps in frequent contact and he is clearly interested in his clients and their businesses. Bill’s ability to build relationships transcends recruiting and he has also been there for me when I may have needed help and professional guidance. I without hesitation endorse Bill and EverQuest Recruiting to both organizations that need professional executive recruiting assistance as well as to high level candidates who want to be placed in the very best of industry organizations”
