“What sets the Deffet Group apart from other executive search firms? Dan and his team take the time to personally understand the culture, mission, and vision of the organization and then drill down to fully understand the skillsets required to accomplish primary and secondary goals and objectives. They have an extensive network of senior level individuals working in CCRCs to draw from and/or network with to find the “right person”.

The quality of C-Suite and other executive level candidates presented to us was outstanding which then allowed us to decide on who was the best “fit” for our organization!
