Professional Recruiting Consultants on Forbes List!

A few weeks weeks ago, we announced that Network agency Adel-Lawrence Associates, Inc. was recently named one of “America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms” by Forbes Magazine.

Then a week after that, we announced that TE firm Affinity Executive Search was named one of “America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms,” also by Forbes Magazine.

Now we’re pleased to announce that TE agency Professional Recruiting Consultants also cracked one of the Forbes lists! That list happens to be “America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms,” on which the agency was #243.

(To recap, the first list ranks 250 professional search firms, which place candidates in roles with less than $100,000 in annual income. The second list ranks 250 executive search firms, defined as companies that place candidates in positions with at least $100,000 in annual pay.)

Professional Recruiting Consultants: history of success

Professional Recruiting Consultants has a rich history of success in Top Echelon’s recruiter network. The firm and its owner, Roger Malatesta, joined the Network in September of 1992. (That means the agency will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in TE later this year.)

However, the firm is about more than just longevity. Professional Recruiting Consultants has accounted for 146 placements during its time in TE’s split network. Judy Kaplan has made 88 of those placements, while Roger has made 17, and Carol Calvano has made 15.

And clearly, Professional Recruiting Consultants exemplifies quality both inside and outside of our split fee recruiting network. Otherwise, it would not have been honored with such an award.

We asked Roger to say a few words about his firm’s achievement. He was good enough to provide us with the following statement:

We were surprised to get the recognition, and I found out through Carol after she saw your announcement that Larry was on [the list]. In searching, she found us there, as well. Apparently to get the list, they asked recruiters to share their expertise with them, as well as HR managers working in large companies across the U.S.

They researched contacts from more than 4,000 recruiting firms and 500 companies from different industries. They also consulted with sources like trade organizations and company databases, identifying about 4,000 recruiters in each of the two categories. Then they invited thousands of recruiters and HR managers to take an online survey.

The survey asked them to recommend up to 10 recruiting firms, excluding their own. It gathered a total of 20,000 recommendations. I’m certain many other TE members should also be on the list. I must say it has already helped me get one high-level search that I might not have gotten if not for the listing.

We want to congratulate Roger and the rest of the recruiters in his firm on this achievement and their success in Top Echelon’s recruiting network. Like Adel-Lawrence Associates and Affinity Executive Search, Professional Recruiting Consultants has been an integral part of our Network for more than 20 years. We very much appreciate the agency’s professionalism, integrity, and commitment to excellence during that time.

Congratulations to Roger Malatesta and everybody at Professional Recruiting Consultants!
