Candidate Testimonials


Thanks to your entire team for helping me secure a new position at Novozymes.  Every interaction I had with your associates was not only extremely professional, but much more than that.  Jane’s first voice mail a few weeks ago seemed to come out of nowhere - since I wasn’t looking for a new job.  Once we talked a bit, my interest level started to grow, and Jane’s warm personality helped with that.  Later, as things progressed, I really enjoyed working with Travis, who seemed as excited as I did about the new opportunity.  It would be hard to express in words how happy I was today when I got the call from Mr. Ropella today telling me that there was a good offer on the table.
This is a big move for me and my family, and I believe it will be a very positive one.  It will allow me to work really hard to make Novozymes new venture a success, and at the same time, allow my wife, to spend more time with our 11 month old baby girl. 
Once again, many thanks to you and your exceptional team.

I have worked with other recruiters, sometimes winning the job, sometimes not.  But everyone did things their own way.  I can say that the team at Ropella stood out to me very, very positively.  They were very organized, informative, and walked me through the process step by step.  They did a great job of setting expectations from the beginning.  And I never felt that my time was being wasted, it was just a very organized, successful and enjoyable process.  Thanks again.

My experiences with Jeff Bennet & the Ropella team were outstanding throughout the entire placement process.  Their professionalism and guidance made the process feel well-structured and most importantly comfortable, from initial contact through negotiations.  Focusing on truly understanding the needs of their client, Dow Kokam, and my personal values and career objectives, ensured that my placement was a strategic union.  I am extremely pleased with the results and would strongly recommend other companies and individuals to reach out to Ropella and their staff for their Executive Search needs.

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.
