Read What Our Clients Are Saying

In my world, recruitment agencies approach me all the time to partner with them. It was through one of these pitches that I decided to give Ross and IQ PARTNERS a shot. From the get-go, this team proved themselves to be different. Ross would listen carefully to the requirements of the role and he and his team would actually recruit -- not recycle an old list of stagnant candidates. Ross and team always delivered and if there were ever any hiccups, they were dealt with swiftly and professionally. IQ PARTNERS and Ross are my very first (and usually, only) call when I need to partner with a recruitment vendor.

Natasha Tsagogeorgas, Talent Acquisition Consultant, CAA

I've had the pleasure of partnering with Ross and this team on sourcing a number of strategic and critical roles. He not only delivered but exceeded my expectations each time. Ross has tremendous expertise, translates recruitment needs into an effective search model based on his active listening skills, and he takes a proactive approach. He is incredibly organized and on top of things, and is just a decent and good person to interact with. I'm delighted to be connected to Ross and look forward to continuing to work with him.

Kris Amaral, VP, People and Culture, LOGiQ3

I would recommend working with Ross (and his team) if you're looking for a talent acquisition consultant who has the following attributes: Professionalism, Strong Industry Knowledge, Results driven (but people focused), Relationship Manager (set expectations and manages them effectively), Well networked (a network that spans the country).

Kinka needed to partner with a recruitment agency that had the depth and breadth to hire senior positions across multiple functional areas to get ready for a significant growth phase. The IQ Partners team really got to know our company DNA, our culture, and created a professional process that allowed us to hire five candidates in Finance, Project Management, Legal, and IT. We thank them for their partnership for many years to come.
