With their technology transfer recruiting expertise, The Vortechs Group contributed to our process of finding candidates whom we otherwise might never have seen, ultimately leading to a successful hire. It was a pleasure partnering with The Vortechs Group and I recommend their services to organizations seeking technology transfer and related positions.
Recently, our organization engaged Glen Gardner and his firm to conduct a search for an Office of Technology Transfer Director. The lead recruiter, Katie Kittle, took the appropriate time to understand our requirements for the position, provided comprehensive information, and helped keep the process timely and efficient.
Thank you very much for your efforts and help in this recruiting process! We appreciate the level of candidates you brought to us. In addition, I want to thank you for your understanding and patience as we are going through the reorganization phase at Cornell. I recognize that you have gone above and beyond than normal situations and wish to express my gratitude for your support.
I was very pleased with my experience with Vortechs, and now that I am in a hiring position, I would be pleased to use Vortechs to find candidates for any job openings my department may have in the future. I also would not hesitate to recommend the Vortechs Group to my colleagues.
I am happy to report that, from the resulting substantial and highly qualified candidate pool, we hired an extremely well qualified Director, and also hired an experienced Project Manager. From candidates I interviewed, I heard comments such as, “I knew the positions were available, but the call from Vortechs provided the motivation for me to apply.
I have used a number of first tier executive search firms in the past but I don’t know of any other group that has the level expertise, detailed understanding and meaningful contacts in technology transfer industry. In my experience working with Glen I have found him to be ethical, smart and responsive.
Not only did they listen to our needs, but the Vortechs Group added input and expertise during the entire process. Their understanding of the unique needs of our organization, experience in the executive search process, and extensive knowledge of technology transfer helped us identify candidates who were the right fit.
In a few short weeks, the Vortechs Group presented us with more and better qualified candidates than we were able to find on our own in the previous six months of searching. Thanks to their expertise, we were able to find and hire the one-of-a-kind candidate we were looking for to lead our Technology Transfer efforts.
