I am thankful to have gotten your aid and support throughout my career and wanted to write to stay connected. ...This perspective comes from working in companies with very different cultures – Koch Industries, arguably the largest and most successfully privately owned corporation to Procter & Gamble the world leader in branded consumer products. AND it is because of our interactions that I was able to learn and establish a framework from which I am able to succeed. Your insights and knowledge are a treasure.

It was so wonderful to speak with you today.  I admire and appreciate how hard you work to make a difference and how kind and understanding you are.  Sometimes it is possible to know someone’s spirit just by communicating with them; today was one of those times for me, hopefully you got a sense of who I am also my sincerest and best wishes to you.

I am pleased to provide feedback regarding my experience with Jeff Bennett of the Ropella Group.  Jeff provided excellent support through all aspects of my career transition to my current role at Dow Kokam, LLC. During the initial call and introduction to the role, Jeff looked for synergies and offered honest feedback on the aspects of the role that were a good fit.  Jeff provided good insight and advice on describing these synergies in the CV.  He provided sound and thoughtful advice on preparing for the initial phone interview.  This advice was based on his thorough and detailed knowledge of the role and the needs of the hiring client.  This advice helped me to prepare for both the initial screen as well as the on-site interview, both of which supported the hiring team’s decision to allow me to join the team.  Through the negotiation process, Jeff provided good balance and solid representation, while maintaining a clear path to an agreement for both candidate and hiring firm.  Jeff maintained a consistent professional presence throughout the process.  I recommend his work to both candidates and hiring firms moving forward, and look forward to working with him in the future.

“My experience with the Ropella team, and in particular Robbie Ropella and Scott Schmieder, has been very positive. The support throughout the whole process was excellent and encouragement exceptional. I felt comfortable and confident working with them since communications were frequent and responses to my questions prompt and helpful.  I was well guided through changes in direction during the range of interviews, and am extremely happy with the final outcome. I thank them so much for professional and very personable service.

Ropella approached and recruited me with a fantastic role that suited my experience, skills and motivations down to a tee! They were very well informed about the company and position, and practical in their advice on what to expect throughout the interview process and thereafter. The Ropella consultants were very prompt and professional with all their communications, keeping me informed during the period between my initial application and final placement with COSL in China.  They made sure the overall recruitment process moved continuously and smoothly. When it comes to executive search services, I would, without question, recommend Ropella to any prospective employer or candidate.

I want to thank the team at Ropella, especially Sue and Patrick, for their support and highest degree of professionalism while assisting with my job placement.  They were able to quickly assess and identify my experience as a perfect fit for their client’s V.P. of International Sales position; which allowed everyone involved to move swiftly and make competent decisions.  Additionally, they were very thorough when providing the details about the position in a clear and concise manner; this allowed me to make those quick and qualified decisions.  Their utter support in me as a qualified candidate for their valued client’s executive position permitted us to move forward rapidly and get my interview and job placement expedited.  Ultimately, their expertise in recognizing what a fantastic fit that my new company and I were together, and the speed in which we all were able to close a deal, is a testament to their experience and why you should choose to work with the Ropella team.
