"We just completed a long and challenging search with Diligent Partners for a partner-level executive for our management consulting firm.  Completing a search like this for a small, culture-driven firm was no easy task, and we put both George and Scott through the ringer with our selectiveness, stubbornness, and hundreds of questions.  Both George and Scott did a great job working with us, walking us through all the details, and most importantly, finding several extremely well qualified candidates for us to meet with and ultimately hire.  Our search came with some self-inflicted bumps along the way, and I was impressed with the manner in which Diligent Partners stuck with their commitment to us from day one to the first day on the job of our new executive.  We liked their candidates so much, we ended up hiring two."

“Scott Cadwalader represents the best to be found in the executive search and recruitment arena. Over the course of my 35 year career, I have had occasion to work with many senior executive search firms but my experience with Scott was a pleasant departure from the norm. My placement in a high visibility "C" level position within a global market leading company would not have happened without Scott's keen insights into the needs of his customer and my fitness for the role. Although I was not the strongest candidate on paper, the time Scott took to understand my passion and ability to deliver was what convinced him to keep me in the game through the interview stage. I got the job, and the result almost 4 years into my tenure has been the most mutually rewarding experience of my professional career.”
