"I have worked closely with Larry Stauffer for the past 10 years and he has supplied excellent talent to our company for nearly 20 years. I cannot say enough about the candidates that Larry has brought into our organization. He understands our industry, our culture and our people. We work in a specialized, niche industry and he goes far beyond the customary hunting grounds for candidates and finds those passive candidates who are underground and not looking for a change. Larry is one of the rare recruiters that doesn’t take the “post and pray approach.” He digs for candidates and because of his understanding of our industry, he knows how to satisfy both our company and the candidate. The candidates that Larry presents are well vetted and understand what we need in the role, the specific challenges and opportunities for growth. Most of the candidates that Larry has sent through to us end up working for our company, are long term employees and have progressed well through our company." -RECRUITING COORDINATOR

“I have been working with Larry Stauffer for several years. He was the one that helped me find a job when things took a turn for the worse during the economic downturn. He was there for me when I was making a career change, and is the one that placed me on my career path and in a position that would kick-off successful longevity with a very prestigious organization. That organization was able to recognize my skills and experience, and take what I am capable of providing them to the next level. I have trusted Larry with my career moves and my professional future, and relied on him to always find what is best for me and at that time of my development and career path. I highly recommend Larry for anyone that is looking in changing their jobs, and finding the best opportunities. He is highly professional, works with great resources, and what I believe to be unlimited connection in several industries. He was always on top of my list for when I was looking for a change, as he is who I look to for hiring talent within my organization.” -SENIOR PROJECT MANAGER
