I can honestly say working with Gregg McDonald has been both most efficient and effective delivering exemplary results. I have worked with Gregg on my most recent placement and subsequently a CFO search in the middle of COVID. A very challenging search that resulted in finding the perfect candidate who was able to immediately engage in the business and then help to take the business through a tremendously successful sales process. A huge win all around. Gregg’s work ethic, commitment, and effective communication make him the best I have had the pleasure to work with and I will definitely use him in the future.”

“Gregg is truly an honest person. He listens, he understands, and he only wants what makes sense for all parties. Not a good fit? Better to know it now than to find out later and he’s true to that regardless of potential conflict of interest or alternative incentives. Gregg is very organized. He runs a tight ship and he expects a lot from his Clients and his prospects. He raises the bar on everyone’s engagement in the recruiting experience. Not responding to feedback requests or not being flexible on scheduling? He’s in our grill; making our Team make it a priority. In today’s world – we may not like it at the time but we like the results.”
