Erevena took the time to understand not only the exact role we tried to fill but also the kind of person that would fit in with the rest of the company. Through a stellar process, they managed to guide us through the usually difficult task of finding the right person just for us. It was a pleasant and professional experience for us as a client, which was very important as first-time buyers of executive search services.

In the end, we ended up with the perfect candidate in skill-set, experience and attitude as well as in cultural values that we really think will help us lift the business to the next stage. I can give nothing but my best recommendations to the people at Erevena, we couldn't have wished for more.
