Client Testimonials

I have known Stephen Winget for 7 years and recommend him highly as a recruiter for filling key technical roles in advanced manufacturing. After successfully helping me find engineering talent at a Silicon Valley start-up company, I chose Steven to help fill a difficult to find process automation role at Elcon Precision. Steven is very organized, listens carefully to your requirements, and keeps you well informed as the pipeline of candidates is developed and optimized. Steven consistently delivers quality candidates when promised and assists with the process vetting candidates to find the right person for the job. His work is customized to your specific search criteria, therefore the majority of candidates he identifies closely match the requirements of the role you need to fill. Stephen is a fabulous technical recruiter and I recommend his services to anyone on the technical manufacturing business space.d with fundraising, financing, and laying the groundwork for taking the company public in the future.

We expanded our search and were able to identify and attract a candidate that had been with a startup water company, participated in fundraising, and was instrumental in the sale of the company to a Fortune 500 company.
