Vice President Sales, Fortune 500 
I have utilized the services of The Recruiting Group as an employer in the capacity as Vice President of Sales. Again and again, Bruce and The Recruiting Group have always provided the highest quality of candidates based on my requirements and has never failed in keeping a continuous and proactive level of communication open at all times. Bruce has worked successfully with me in filling five unique and varied sales positions with various corporations I have been associated with. To state it simply, whether as a candidate or an employer, Bruce treats you with the feeling that you are his sole and most important client!

Director Talent Acquisition, Fortune 1000 
I have known Bruce for a number of years both as a peer while at Fortune 100 and as a service provider in the form of search work (retained and contingency) while representing clients through my consulting company. Bruce is a seasoned HR professional with a broad business background who has developed a niche in the search business. He is exceptionally well networked, understands how to profile, source, screen, and present qualified candidates for all functional areas. I have utilized his services while representing several clients in the placement of significant numbers of positions including HR, Sales, Manufacturing, and Finance. He is spot on with matching candidates with hiring profiles, qualifies all candidates presented, determines affordability of candidate to position, and very effectively manages candidate expectations throughout the recruitment and offer process. I would highly recommend him as a business partner for any retained or contingency arrangement with high confidence that he delivers spot on every time.

Sales Director, Private manufacturer
"Having worked with many recruiters over the years, Bruce's professionalism really shines through. He follows up as promised and checks back later to make sure everything has been taken care of. He also stays in touch with people years after the career change and takes a personal interest in their development. Bruce is someone I can heartily recommend and would work with anytime on job search projects-he has become a true business friend."
