"As the new CEO of an early stage technology start up I needed to bring in the first Sales member to join a small team consisting of mainly Ph.D.s. The product is an optical product geared to the Pharmaceutical industry. Knowing of Common Agenda's successful track record in the Optical space I approached them, a bit skeptical, I must admit about what they could do in the Pharma industry. Common Agenda moved quickly to leverage their extensive network and knowledge of optical and identified three viable candidates in less than three weeks. In fact, not only did the candidate I hired through them have the exact right technology background, pharma rolodex, and personality I was seeking, it was the first candidate they presented at our initial visit at the start of the search. I found Common Agenda to be very professional, thorough and intelligent in their approach to recruiting. They also kept in mind my time frame and acted as my partner and advisor through the entire recruiting process.".
