People Are Talking About GNR
Mike handled my recent career advancement professionally, expeditiously, and expertly. He made my match with my new company seamless and a top-notch fit. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mike because he was more knowledgeable, responsive, and “invested” than any other search specialist that I have ever dealt with.
I retained Kurt to fill a VP of Sales position for my Consumer Electronics Company. Kurt and his staff were incredibly thorough in the vetting process and in a very short time found the perfect candidate! The question shouldn’t be IF you should work with Kurt…. The question IS, can your business afford to NOT work with Kurt???!!!
My experience with GNR was excellent. In the middle of a global pandemic, I lost my job with a high technology company after 28+ years of service.
Soon after this job loss, I was contacted by GNR about a position with an aerospace and defense company. From my initial contact with GNR through negotiating and finalizing a job offer, GNR was not only very professional, providing transparent and excellent communication with continuous updates, but they worked with me and the company to negotiate a mutually beneficial offer.
I genuinely felt GNR not only understood what I was looking for in my next position, but GNR was seeking the best outcome for me as a candidate as well as the best outcome for the company searching for the perfect candidate. I will definitely plan to use them in the future if needed and I highly recommend their services.
I have had the pleasure of working with Mike and the GNR team from both sides of the desk.
As a company leader: I trusted Mike and his team when I needed to fill an opening for a leadership position. Again, they exceeded my expectations – not only the quick response time but GNR provided multiple applicants who fit my requirements!
As a candidate: working with GNR, I found them to be responsive, respectful, resourceful and the consummate professionals.
The GNR team easily established themselves apart from their competition. They are the best of the best!
Thank you and your team for all that you did to help me land this position! I’m doing well and I love working here. I have gained a ton of knowledge about the business and in only 6 months I was promoted! I’m thankful for the job and will refer friends / colleague to anyone who needs it.
Kurt is “a unicorn hunter” that can find that right fit for your organization. Does great research, great screening and only sends you great possibilities (not just candidates). He’s my “go to person” when looking for talent!
It is my sincere privilege to recommend Kurt Phelps for his work at Global Network Recruiting (GNR).
I have worked with Kurt for more than a decade and his professionalism, passion, caring and follow-thru are second to none in my experience. Kurt is an absolute expert in his field and he truly cares about his work and his clients. He provides savvy, sound advice and never fails to impress. He will also give you very direct feedback on your plans and will ensure you understand the pros and cons fully.
Kurt is someone I fully trust and consider myself fortunate to have met. I look forward to our collaboration together in the years to come and to see his much-earned success continue to grow.
I had a great experience working with GNR. They were very professional and kept me updated throughout the process. They understood what I was looking for in my next position and were transparent with me. I am very happy with my new job. I plan to use them in the future and I highly recommend their services.
My sincerest thanks to the team at GNR, who recruited me for a new position that I have accepted, and which will be an advancement for me with an exciting new challenge. I originally declined the position when they first brought it to my attention 6 months ago, but then the company made the offer more appealing to attract a wider collection of applicants, and fortunately they had kept my info and re-contacted me. They worked closely with me during all stages; from applying through negotiations, and I am eternally grateful to GNR for their dedicated efforts.
I first met Mike at GNR in 2017 when I was looking to build a leadership team in the space market domain.
I was immediately impressed with his up-to-date knowledge of the space market. I engaged GNR to help me fill a difficult to find position and they quickly identified several qualified candidates. I believe the technical backgrounds of the team at GNR uniquely qualifies them to find leadership talent for high technology companies.
