Testimonials

We’re grateful for the opportunity to serve our Executive Search clients and proud of the impact the people we’ve placed are making in the organizations they’re now a part of. We appreciate the leaders who have shared their success stories with us.

Many thanks to Susan and her team for working with us constructively at all times, even through hiccups like switching up our search committee head on her midstream. The background work and advice Susan offered was instrumental to a successful outcome.

We had a great experience working with Susan and CVNL. She took the time to get to know our agency, and the specific program we were hiring for. We knew we had a challenging position to hire for, and I felt reassured that she would stick with us through the full process, and the way she handled the details and logistics was a huge relief. The communication with the CVNL team was easy and consistent. I trusted Susan’s expertise about candidates and the search process, and we ultimately found someone we are very happy with. We would absolutely use CVNL again, and would recommend them for any agency who is searching.

Susan Brown and CVNL recruited me to make a move to the Bay Area from a career in NYC. CVNL helped me to realize my non-profit experience would be valued in an important non-profit. Through personal service unlike anything I have experienced in my career, I am now fortunate to call the Bay Area home.

I was thrilled to be working with CVNL as a partner for my next move. I got the job of my dreams and am so glad to have been supported throughout the entire process.
