“I believe the reason cited for our split placements (regular communication) is exactly the reason our Trading Partner relationship works so well. Not only do we share all details regarding our searches and candidates, but we also involve one another in our client relationships. Gary and I have often introduced one another to our clients and included the other on conference calls with our clients.
“Obviously, this approach allows us to know as much as possible about our respective searches, but it also demonstrates to our clients that we have a team of highly qualified recruiters working on their behalf. This level of trust comes from years of cooperative work and understanding each other’s business philosophy. It also enables us to be a sounding board for the other when we need a second opinion or some advice on how to handle a particular situation.
“Were it not for our regular communication over the years, we would not have developed this level of trust that is the root of our success together.”

“To be good partners, we have developed a solid foundation of trust. We listen to each other regarding the requirements of the searches we work to fill, along with, of course, the subtleties and nuances that come up in the placement dance.
“And like a prescription, we communicate on an as-needed basis. All that being said–we are genuinely mindful of each other’s best interest, on an equal measure with our own.”
