"My association with Common Agenda was as Matthew Reaves' client during my tenure as Chief Operating Officer of The Tolly Group in New Jersey. Matthew approached me with a sensible alternative to our previous approach to hiring Engineering and Marketing staff. He earned my trust and we were able to hire a number of very talented people at different levels in a reasonably short time. As a Common Agenda customer, I found Matt and his team to be quick in understanding our varied requirements and able to produce qualified candidates that were well-matched even if we did not hire them. Through that collaboration, we became trusted friends and have remained so even after my cross-country move to another company.".
