From our Candidates

"Personable, supportive and authentic are some of the words that best describe my experience working with Sartor and Associates throughout the recruitment process for the Executive Director of the Guelph Community Health Centre. I had heard many people say that you learn and grow greatly from ‎such an intensive and comprehensive recruitment journey, and Larry's supportive mentorship along the way contributed greatly to what proved to be both an incredible learning opportunity, as well as a successful step forward in my career path. One particularly memorable moment for me was sitting with Larry while the Board deliberated following my final presentation. His genuine feedback and encouragement helped to put me at complete ease during this high intensity home moment!  This is a stand-out recruitment company, run in a hands-on way by experts in the field. You won't regret choosing them to lead your next Executive search.”

"During the whole process I felt that I had the support of Sartor & Associates; that they were not just doing a recruitment assignment, but they were also acting as a partner and were committed to me and my success. There was ample opportunity to ask for further details and to seek advice to the extent that it was possible during this process. The process was not onerous; I actually found the process to be of great benefit – it required focus, some inner searching and reflecting on my career. Finally, from start to finish, this entire process only took five weeks, which I understand by most standards today, is very short.”

"As a candidate, I had the good fortune of partnering with Sartor and Associates in the course of a senior-level search. Throughout the process, Larry and his team worked diligently to coordinate the activities and expectations of both me and the hiring organization, laying out timelines and milestones to effectively manage our mutual obligations, and to keep the process on track. The multi-dimensional and thorough recruitment approach and the tools used, particularly their screening and on-boarding methodology, provide candidates with excellent and ample opportunities to highlight their skills, competencies and experience as they relate to a client’s real-life business situation.  Sartor & Associates – end-to-end a pleasure to work with."

Vice President, Customer Service & Conservation - Brantford Power Inc.

 "I have worked with a number of management recruiters while hiring senior management personnel and can vouch for the quality control that Sartor & Associates applied in the hiring process. Larry is thorough and adopted a very professional approach & methodology to the selection process. The entire recruitment process was filled with a step by step vetting process and required me to clearly establish my credentials and suitability for the position.  The first 100-day plan was a new experience for me and I really enjoyed preparing it. Larry was there to assist and guide throughout the process. I was really impressed that Larry allowed me to speak to my future employers on their priorities to prepare an effective 100 days on-boarding plan. It greatly helped me to prepare for the final interview and to impress the decision makers.  Overall, I think matching the right candidate with the right employer is an art and S&A knows this art very well. I highly recommend S&A to any candidate and to any employer."

 "I have had the pleasure to work with Larry Sartor first as a candidate and then continued to work with Sartor & Associates as a client.   As a candidate I was impressed with their thorough screening and pre-work for candidate selection.   As a result of this well-defined selection process, Larry got to know my background and career goals and I in turn understood the role and the needs of the company.   Sartor & Associates then became key partners for all our executive search needs.  Larry gets to know the business and the culture and presents candidates that bring both the skill level, as well as the all-important fit.  Larry has a genuine and sincere approach and truly cares about the success of the candidates and our business."

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Sartor and Associates as a candidate for a senior position in the utility industry. I was very impressed with the methodology used to conduct the search and the quality of information supplied to candidates. As the process unfolded, there was a feeling of increasing confidence on both my part and the utility that I was the right person for the role. In my mind, this is a true testament to the methodology and tools used throughout the selection. On a more personal note, I would also add that Larry's professionalism, feedback, and advice throughout the process was top notch and very much appreciated.”          

CEO - Energy+

"Sartor and Associates has proven to be an exceptional recruitment company. Thorough in scoping the role and creating a finely-honed picture of the requirements, they showed great care and attention to building a portfolio of suitable candidates and providing effective briefing to ensure candidates were prepared to bring their best. The level of detail, comprehensiveness and personable support made the application journey a genuine process of matchmaking in the best possible sense. Beyond the care and attention was the approachable, personable and authentic support from Larry, Mary and Sarah. I felt well informed and received valuable feedback throughout my application process. Both I and the board therefore made a well informed and confident choice at what can be an uncertain and potentially derailing time. I feel well positioned for sustainable success in an organization that has made a considered choice and confident that I have found a suitable home for my skills and talents to flourish. Thank you for your professional and caring support.”
