"I wanted to take a moment to let you know how impressed I am with the work you've done for TripAdvisor -- it’s truly difficult to put into words how much I value your work ethic, diligence, perseverance and ability to partner in a way that makes my life better each time I work with you. You are absolute professionals who are also able to build deep, strong relationships with candidates (and with me), which as you know is hard to come by in the recruiting world where the general attitude is often, 'I’ll give you time when I need you.' I can honestly say there is no other team that comes close to IQ PARTNERS, whether the focus is on relationship-building, execution, or the pleasure of working with them. They know when to push, when to step back, when to offer advice, and when to take it. I often tell people that they can do pretty much any search in the world -- any function, any location… because their expertise in recruiting and their willingness to get out there and dive into unknown territory is so impressive. I’m a big fan of IQ PARTNERS and will always be ready to act as a reference if you have new potential clients who would like to hear about the wonderful experience of working with you. Thanks for everything!"
