DPA’s reputation speaks for itself. Below, you will find testimonials from some of our clients, describing their experiences in partnering with the David Perry Associates recruitment team.
I have been dealing with David Perry Associates and Ray Spadaro in particular for over fifteen years and can honestly say that Ray is one of the most conscientious search executives I have ever dealt with. He consistently finds candidates that are exactly on target to my needs and specifications. Over the years, many of the candidates I have hired as a result of Ray's efforts have gone on to greater responsibilities and promotions which attests to his ability to source high quality individuals. He takes the time to get to know you and your company so that he can serve you better and establish a long-term relationship. The thing I like most about Ray is his straight forward approach and honesty. He will not tell you he can do something if he can not and over time, I have learned to trust that when he says he can do something, he does. In over twenty five years as a hiring manager, with several companies, I have conducted well over a hundred searches and met many search firms and executives that have failed to live up to their promises. This is why I keep coming back to Ray Spadaro and David Perry Associates. Ray is a true gentleman and a real professional and I look forward to continuing our long and mutually beneficial relationship.
I have known Ray Spadaro for over 20 years. In that time, I have worked with him both as a recruiter to assist me in my search, as well as someone to identify talent for me. His ethics, integrity, honesty has never wavered. His perspective on recruiting is not simply making a placement, but everything that goes into the process before and after the search has been completed. When Ray partners with clients it is a philosophy he fully believes in and lives it in every aspect of the client/recruiter relationship. He is a true professional who always offers a straight forward approach to the search process.
I would like to provide my personal endorsement of David Perry Associates Recruitment Agency. My dealings with this agency and in particular the company president, Ray Spadaro spans over 10 plus years. During this period, they have conducted numerous searches for the varying openings we had to fill. The organization consistently demonstrated their ability to gain a quick understanding of the position requirements reinforcing their in-depth knowledge of the industry. The team works to read the culture of your company and identify the individuals that would best compliment your organization. Their pre-screening process is in-depth and on target when candidates are presented up. Communication is frequent and informative ensuring all parties realize where they stand. The agency is prompt in returning communications, and proactively works to minimize your involvement to complete the search. The retention rate and performance of the individuals placed by David Perry Associates has been very good. The team that address your needs are competent and a pleasure to work with.
I have known Bob since the early 90s and he has always provided me excellent counsel relative to career decisions. Much of this had to do with internal promotions inside my past employers, and though he did not make a dime off of his advice, he always had time to spend to spend with me. I have since moved on to a National Sales role and have been able to utilize Bob in recruitment efforts for my own team. As expected, he has produced excellent results. Bob is a recruiter that I trust will represent myself and my company in the best possible light. He is always displayed a high degree of integrity and follows through on his commitments. He gets the job done!
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the excellent candidate you placed for our Northeast Regional Vice President of Sales position. As you know, we had been conducting an internal search for over 6 months. While we received over 100 resumes and phone screened 10 potential candidates, we were unable to hit the profile. Within forty-five days, you produced 2 "spot-on" candidates and had one of them through our interview process and on-board! I attribute that to how well you were able to match the needs of the position and our corporate culture with his background and skills. You demonstrated to me years ago how well you get to know your candidates and how hard you work to make a match when you placed me. Bob, having John on board has freed up considerable recruiting/interviewing time for me and, not to mention, has restarted the business in this vacant position - thank you!
I am writing this letter on behalf of Bob Pyle, who over the past 10 years has been instrumental in identifying quality sales talent for me. Bob has always delivered for me and I credit that to his hard work, sense of urgency and his ability to ask the right questions of myself and the candidates he recruits. I specifically remember an instance when the company needed to hire 12 District Managers to complete our direct sales force transition. We had a 90 day window to complete the project and Bob not only delivered the right candidates, but was able to coordinate the interview process around my travel schedule. It was a very smooth transition. I would highly recommend including Bob on any staffing assignment where quick results and attention to detail are priorities. He has never let me down.
Peggy masters the details of our opportunities through work site visits, constant follow-up and "fit" dialogues to satisfy the needs of our company. She is both efficient and thorough in her work as our staffing partner to complete the assignments for the most difficult positions.
Peggy Allen at David Perry Associates was truly a consultative business partner. In a field where executive search often leaves you feeling a bit more like a commodity than a person, Peggy and co. really took time, dedication, effort, and interest in finding a perfect fit.
Peggy is one of the best and most professional recruiters in the CPG marketplace. Peggy focuses on fit, not only for the company, but for the individual she is representing. While others tend to promote nearly any open position as the opportunity of a lifetime, Peggy carefully matches skillset and personality with opportunity, therefore ensuring overall a successful placement.
Peggy was super helpful in getting me (not just any job) but the perfect job for me. She and I have kept in touch over the years and she is not one of those recruiters who â€œhas no time for youâ€ if you don't fit their current search. She has kept a file on my interests and personal goals and was able to connect me to just the right job. Her company has multiple recruiters working with various companies, and she was able to connect me to a search that her colleague was working on. This makes a huge difference when one recruiter has access to a larger pool of opportunities. If you are looking for a job, I would absolutely give Peggy a call!
