quotationDeffet Group had a very good understanding of what we needed and were looking for in our executive search. I would highly recommend them to another organization for many reasons, based on nearly 20 years of experience partnering with this firm. However, their excellent understanding of the particular need at the front end of the process, their follow-through on the agreed-upon communication and steps, and their follow-up with both the client and the candidates all the way through the process to a successful conclusion is especially worth mentioning.”
-Ray Rabidoux, CEO

quotationAs Board Chair of an organization seeking a leader with the experience and knowledge to help us grow, I consider the executive search services of the Deffet Group nothing but a blessing. They located the ideal individual to turn things around and facilitate our current successful expansion, and also helped us better define the executive’s role and the profile of person who would best fit our needs.”
“Deffet Group did an outstanding job of introducing several candidates with the right qualifications. Their search consultant was very aware of what we needed as a religious organization, and did an excellent job of bringing us only the people who had not only the skills and qualifications, but also the Christian values behind them that are so important to us.”

quotationDeffet Group’s search on our behalf for a new President and CEO went extremely well from start to finish. Dan Deffet did an excellent job of bringing us quality candidates, and really helped in developing the position specifications, which made it very clear what type of individual we were seeking. I definitely appreciated their expertise not only in providing potential candidates for the position, but also in the process of helping us make the final selection involved.”
“Deffet Group had an excellent grasp of our strategic objectives and business issues, which was really evident when designing the position specifications and in feedback about the candidates and which ones were potentially best suited for our organization.
