“I’m so happy for the 2 hires Ropella made for SDI.  Your diligent work, prompt follow up, and knowledge about the candidates were so impressive.  More importantly, since it was the first time for me, as a small company owner, to work with your firm, your recommendations and tips on my other requests for “how to” and “what to” (e.g. how to interview, discuss money, etc) were so helpful!  You also fully understood my requirements and helped me analyze candidates one by one.”
