"Darlene’s sense of timing and ability to quickly and accurately assess a manager’s hiring needs is astonishing. When we were faced with difficult job searches, she embraced them and identified key talent, sought them out, sold them on our company and closed the hire quickly and effectively with very little help from the hiring managers. This enabled our hiring managers to stay focused on product development. Darlene recruited the best and the brightest for our company.".

- Dr. Krishna Bala, CEO, NanoNCI (formerly CEO of Xtellus)
