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.
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.

She is a professional, always efficient, and always positive. Thank you, Sandy, for providing the service you do.
