Who we're working with

The service provided by Sandy and the entire Richardson team was thorough and proficient. We needed that professional service that could assist us with an extremely difficult task of finding an experienced candidate while sifting through the immense volume of information and qualifications. The team prepared excellent interview packages and tips while taking care of the administrative burdens like bookings and interview package material. They provided us the opportunity to adjust and customize pieces of the process, so we were certain we were moving forward in the right direction. Amazing!

On behalf of Lethbridge County Council, I would like to thank Richardson Executive Search for their contributions toward Council selecting their new CAO. Sandy and her team at Richardson were terrific to deal with throughout the recruitment process. The CAO position is unique, and the Richardson team was very cognizant of the skill sets possessed by successful CAOs. Richardson was deliberate in their intent to work at Council’s pace and with Council’s end goals in mind. I would encourage any municipalities looking to recruit to consider the team at Richardson Executive Search.

Reeve, Lethbridge County, AB

I was impressed by the hard work and dedication that Sandy's team brought to each job position Richardson assisted us with, by the focus and attention in building relationships, and understanding what we needed. It did not feel like a business transaction but a friendship. Coming out of COVID is a tough job market, yet Sandy's team brought us results. I appreciated the recommendations when we needed to re-strategize to make our positions more appealing. There was always a willingness to share information and help with whatever we needed. I have referred and will continue to refer your services.

Sandy Jacobson at Richardson Executive Search has been amazing to work with over the past several years in our recruitment of management personnel. She takes the time to understand our needs and keeps us apprised through a weekly report of potential prequalified candidates and recommendations for next steps. Of course, when she comes across a star, she wastes no time in setting up an interview and guides both the candidate and ourselves in moving the process along, ensuring the right fit. We have really enjoyed our relationship with Sandy and look forward to continuing to work with her.
