"I’ve called upon The Angus Group several times for top-level executive leadership searches and I am repeatedly pleased with their expertise in asking the right questions about the sought-after candidate; questions that I may not have thought about when putting the job description together. The Angus Group understands the business-culture of my client companies and the fit that is needed. Just as importantly, they have deep professional relationships in the business community and the ability to find people that you could not find on your own. I will continue to use and recommend the Angus Group."
