Your team consistently produces a wide range of extremely qualified candidates in a very short time frame. I have always been impressed by the level of talent they put in front of me.Mark Cravotta
Our recent search to fill a key Senior Account Executive position in Texas has resulted in a great hire for ThoughtWorks. AnswerQuest took the time to fully understand not only what we were looking for, but the subtle elements of ThoughtWorks’ culture so that the perfect candidate could be identified. Martin Schwartz showed great initiative and business savvy throughout the process. Christine Cohen worked tirelessly to find and guide the candidate both before and after the offer. You guys rock! And – we have another search underway and again it looks like we may have another success! Answerquest is really coming through for ThoughtWorks.Bruce Ferguson
First impressions are lasting, and my initial thought upon speaking with Martin Schwartz is that he is a true professional. Martin was proactive in helping to not only address any questions and concerns I had, but helped to build relationships between myself and potential employers. Martin respects how valuable time is for others, and from our conversations over the years, he understood exactly what type of job opportunity I would be interested in, and aligned me quickly with the best match. My positive experience with Martin makes him one of only a select few recruiters that I will consult with in the future.Sean Derrah
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Martin Schwartz for the better part of 10 years in my capacity as EVP Global Sales and as a Partner with a major consulting firm and found Martin and the rest of the answerQuest team to be the most dialed-in recruiting organization among their peers. In particular, Martin has the uncanny ability to profile just the right candidate at just the right time. His ability to focus on both “cultural fit” and candidate track record has saved both me and my team a lot of time and this is something that the other firms cannot match. Additionally, I’ve found Martin to be both highly responsive and ethical. It is a relationship that I will carry forward in the future and will continue to recommend to all of my colleagues. It has been a pleasure to work with Martin and the rest of the professionals at answerQuest.Jeff Struzenski
