"Satterfield Renzenbrink Associates is a really great boutique of highly effective and efficient recruiters. While they aren't cheap, they offer great value for the money. It's tough to put a price on getting the right person ... and they helped Syrgis do that several times in a way that really made efficient use of our time and helped to ensure we got “the right fit.” I initially thought their base fee was high, but have learned it is well worth it. And, unlike big firms, they don’t charge any "administrative fees." They also pass through all out-of-pocket expenses with no mark-up ... at actual cost. I always got the feel they 'spent' my money (on travel and other expenses) like it was their own. At the end of the day, they have always found the right fit for our positions - most importantly, with culture and values along with the best match for needed skills – providing good overall value and return on our investment in their retained search." - Andy Harris, CEO Syrgis
