 “I have known and worked with Paul for nearly 10 years. During this time I have come to know him very well - both personally and professionally. For those of us that know Paul this recommendation comes as no surprise. If you are looking for an individual that understands the concept of partnering coupled with deep industry knowledge and expertise look no further. Paul is one of the best in the business. He is professional, creative, trustworthy and tireless. He is holds the prestigious title of "Trusted Advisor" with many of his peers and clients!

Matthew Rosenhaft

 “Paul's approach to recruiting and sourcing using the latest social media techniques puts in the elite class of recruiters. He not only provided a strategic recruiting and sourcing plan, but then executed the plan flawlessly. He was able to in a matter of weeks source a larger, more qualified pool of candidates than the in-house recruiting team leveraging his sourcing program that automatically linked to the best industry, competitive, & university resources. Paul has a demonstrated understanding of the latest trends and tools in recruiting, as well as, the ability to execute recruiting programs effectively.

Jeff Myer

Paul is one of the hardest working recruiters I've ever had the pleasure of working with! I joined Extreme Logic with a mission to build a consulting practice from scratch. Paul spent a lot of time understanding my requirements and qualifying suitable candidates. My office was two doors down and I could hear him on the phone continuously recruiting all day and well into the evening. He found, recruited and hired an average of one person per month in the first year of building the infrastructure practice and all of them were excellent

David Gallimore

Paul is a consummate professional - responsive, creative, and smart. He helped me find, interview, and hire over a dozen professionals at Resolute within a year. He is a great job of people; these hires are top performers on our team

“Paul is the consummate professional recruiter and manager. Paul supports our organization from a virtual office, even so he understands the personalities and needs of his internal customers, the needs of the business and the culture as it applies to our various locations. His style is to collaborate and together with hiring managers work to a find a solution and the right candidate. Paul works well with all levels within the organization up to executive management. His work is respected throughout the management team. Paul is a true expert in his field and a positive influence on the Resolute organization. There is so much more I could say about Paul’s expert and professional delivery. I am proud to recommend him.”

Mark Thompson

Paul is a man of outstanding character and professionalism. I have had the opportunity to work with many recruiters and I must say that Paul is superb at what he does. Paul is an authentic and conscientious individual who demonstrates and expects the highest levels of professionalism from himself and those around him. Paul has the mechanics of recruiting nailed but that is not what distinguished him; his intuition about candidates is well developed as are his abilities to quickly understand needs and match them to strong candidates. I trust Paul implicitly.”

Saima Adney

“Paul does a great job finding the right candidate in the smallest amount of time. His process of evaluation, pre-selection and making the candidate familiar with our organization worked very well. As a manager his work enabled me to select from a small group of very qualified candidates and make the right choice very quickly. He is very organized, professional and very dedicated to his work and the people he engages with".

“Over the past 16 months, Resolute has been reaching out beyond their corporate roots in the Pacific Northwest, to help clients in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington,D.C. Penetrating these markets requires exceptional talent that can operate efficiently and effectively to deliver above and beyond the client's expectations. Paul's recruiting skills have married the best and brightest in these areas to Resolute's mission, resulting in an agile organization that can quickly adapt and respond to our client needs. This would be a demanding task for any recruiter, but in this case, Paul's diligence, finesse, negotiating skills, interviewing techniques, and network of recruiting sources have all contributed to Resolute's growing success. Thank you Paul for all of your help.” 

Jack Owen

“Paul served all of my hiring activities for high-end consultants. Paul was very responsive. The candidates he presented to me were extremely well qualified. Paul took care of the details. The consultants that I hired as a result of Paul's efforts were complimentary of Paul. More importantly, the consultants I hired were effective in their roles. I would hire Paul into any organization I worked in that had a recruiting department. He is passionate about what he does and it shows in results.”

John Fallou

“I have known Paul professionally for over 2 years now. Paul is a very smart, committed and highly ethical leader. He has extensive knowledge of the recruiting world and makes each and every candidate that comes through our company feel very special. Paul is the rare breed of professional who understands the consulting world and is consistently on the front lines with our potential employees and organization and is very effective at building trust at all levels.”
