"Let me say that Common Agenda will always be a preferred search firm for me. They are honest and very hard working. With those two qualities, we know they will always succeed for us… even if it takes some time. I'm patient because I know that they are doing all they can and that they will be honest with me if they hit a brick wall and cannot deliver due to outside circumstances, like candidates not wanting to move, etc. Other agencies make things up to buy them time....Common Agenda doesn’t and I really, really respect that. They're the best!".
