John has excellent customer management skills and has extraordinary competencies in assessing people and understanding complex situations. He’s a great communicator and is one of the most results focused individuals that I’ve come to know along with possessing strong professional acumen and high integrity.”

Tom Neuhaus

Executive Director, Supply Chain - Constellation Energy / Victaulic

“John Binkley is one of the most high energy, results-driven recruiters I’ve had the pleasure of utilizing for hard-to-fill positions. His ability to find candidates outside the mainstream pools is something to see. The caliber of candidates brought into the organization pays daily dividends. I get pitched on a daily basis from recruiters who all claim to be different and unique, but John delivers qualified candidates, which is all that’s wanted with a recruiter.”

Travis Banfield

Corporate HR Manager - The Mueller Company

“For the 10 years I’ve known John, he’s provided phenomenal service to his clients. He is incredibly networked and with good reason; people want to surround themselves with top-notch talent like John. John’s knowledge and background coupled with his many years of experience, thoroughness and professionalism have lead to dozens of successful placements at my organizations. When I think of successful recruiting I think of John and I am confident he will continue to exceed my expectations as an executive placement leader. I personally recommend you consider contacting John for your business needs. I assure you he’ll provide you with the same level of service; immediate response to your requests, follow-through on commitments, a thorough understanding of your business as well as your culture and in turn provide qualified candidates with high-producing track records to enable you to hit your talent acquisition goals.”

Jen Mayenschein

Human Resources Director - Airgas

“I had the privilege of working with John on a tough-to-fill opening. By far, he is the most diligent consultant I have ever worked with. John moved quickly throughout the process and met or exceeded every commitment on time and with the promised results. What separates John from the universe of recruiters is the value he adds in providing clients with useful tools and resources that aid in the full search cycle. This is the first recommendation I have ever written for an executive recruiter! John has truly set a higher standard within the executive recruiting industry. I highly recommend John for your company’s search needs.”

Gary Sexton

Director of Human Resources - OSP Group

“We recently engaged John’s services for a position that had become available in our out of town branch. Once we had decided to utilize John for the job search, he and I discussed our company, mission statement and core values. And we discussed the skill set and experience needed for the position. Within a very short amount of time, John presented us with a handful of qualified prospects for the position. We discussed the prospects and decided to interview three of them, we ultimately hired one of them for the position. John’s team did an enormous amount of legwork to eliminate people that did not meet our requirements. He arranged interview times with us and the prospects. Once we made a final decision, he presented the offer for us. Upon reflection of the hiring process, John was working on filling the position while I was working on my business. As we continue to grow, we will continue to rely on John to recruit quality talent for us.”

Lon Lloyd

Owner & CFO - Associated Carriers

“John has done a great job of efficiently identifying qualified candidates and assisting through the entire process – on both sides. We continue to value his efforts in other roles for us.”

Chris Siemasko

SVP Product Solutions - Zenmonics

“John exceeds all executive recruiters with whom I have worked in terms of providing comprehensive information concerning a prospective employer, preparing the executive for the interview and rapid follow-through consistent with client goals. He went the extra mile in providing additional information relevant to area conditions that would affect a decision to relocate. I recommend him without hesitation.”

C.E. (Bud) Wells
