I have had the pleasure of working with John for the last two years. Finding finance and accounting candidates with the right skill set is no problem but by far the most impressive is John’s knack for finding the right cultural fit. He takes the time to not only know the hiring manager but also gains a unique perspective on the position, reporting relationships and the organization’s true culture (not just what they aspire on their mission statement). This unique perspective translates into finding the right people for the position. Many executive placement firms claim to look for cultural fit but John has a rare gift that truly delivers.

Richard Stephenson
President at SASCO/Electek

Hands down John is the best recruiter I work with. He is dedicated to finding the right candidate for every position he works on and will only send you top-notch candidates. I appreciate John’s style and his ability to find great candidates through his network. Every interaction I have with John is highly professional and straight to the point. I highly recommend John to help you find the right talent for your organization.

Keith Boothroyd
Vice President Finance at Cryoport

John is not only an executive search professional, but someone who develops relationships with potential employees and employers to ensure an optimal fit. I have known John since 2010 and he’s never been opposed to brainstorming potential opportunities or having open career discussions regardless of whether he stood to benefit financially. He’s always placed the human over the closure of the deal, which is incredibly important for both a prospect employee and employer alike. I sincerely appreciate his thoughtful openness, regular follow up and coaching throughout my own placement with a firm he represented. I highly recommend John for his work as an executive recruiter, fit consultant and coach.

Steve Vermillion
Vice President Finance at Marvell Semiconductor

I’ve partnered with John for over 15 years and he is the ultimate professional and provides exceptional level of support. He takes the time to understand your needs and personally ensures the right candidate is hired the first time. I recommend John without any hesitation.

Keyur Shah
Finance Director at Nobel Biocare

John has been a tremendous asset to our firm. He always goes all in to understand exactly what we are looking for with every search, does his own pre-screening, and only submits candidates that actually fit our needs. With John we get quality over quantity, every time. He even will call out areas of deficiency with each candidate so we know exactly what we are getting. A search never feels like a sales pitch with John, it feels like he is a part of our team. Cannot recommend him enough.

Tim Dietrich
Chief Financial Officer at Drips

John is simply the best at what he does. He has filled three challenging roles for me in the past 12 months and somehow always finds exactly what we are looking for. I cannot recommend him more highly. In a world of flaky recruiters pushing second class talent, John is a true gem.

Jessamyn Davis

I have worked with John as a recruiter and a recruitee. In the many years that we have known each other, John has always been able to understand my needs and look for creative ways to assist me. He has been a valued advisor to me in my hiring needs, providing updates to marketplace dynamics and seeking opportunities that support my mission. His integrity and approach have won over any resistance that I encountered in navigating the corporate world with outside recruiters. I have and would recommend John to anyone looking for talent or even just a sounding board.

Rusty Taylor
Finance/Operations Head @ Healthcare, Technology, Manufacturing

I have a 10 year working relationship with John Dyer. Over that period of time, John has helped me successfully recruit and hire multiple professional positions ranging from Accountant to Controller. Of the people I’ve hired from John for my finance and accounting teams, there have been new hires who turned out to be some of the most exceptional performers I’ve had the privilege to hire. To this day, they’re people I respect and still consider valued connections.

John possesses the following qualities that make him stand out as an executive search professional:

  • Willingness to go the extra mile getting to know you and your organization. John takes the time to sit down with you and not only go over the technical skillset of a position you’re trying to fill, but will take time understanding the soft skills you are looking for. John excels at understanding what sort of management style, communication skills, and personality you’re looking for in a candidate.
  • John actively recruits and finds professionals that are not specifically looking for an opportunity, but are willing to consider your position based on John’s ability to present the position and his thorough understanding of what the position has to offer the candidate.
  • For positions that are difficult to find good candidates, John will strategize with you and help you develop a more thorough job and candidate profile which will target certain industries and job skills. I’ve worked with John on a couple of position openings like this and working together we came up with some unique solutions and found very good candidates as a result.

I highly recommend working with John to fill any finance or accounting need within your team.

Cole Barner
Director Finance at Consolidated Precision Products

I first met John when he placed me as a VP Finance at a high-tech start up in 2001. Since then, I’ve relied on John’s counsel numerous times, whether it was filling positions on my team, or just strategizing on organizational structure. Further, John has always made himself available to take my calls whenever I needed him. I highly recommend John if you’re looking to fill a finance or executive search, or just want to get his opinion on the state of the industry.

Gary Cooperman
Chief Financial Officer at Health-Ade Kombucha

John is a true professional. At PacifiCare, a Fortune 500 health insurance company, John helped staff our Accounting department with top notch Big 4 CPA’s. He understood both the skill sets we required, as well as the cultural fit necessary for success. John is a true business partner, hard working and trustworthy. I highly recommend John, with no reservations, for any accounting and finance recruiting projects.

Steve Orzeck
VP, Talent Acquisition @ Alignment Healthcare
