  • John Flaugher, President and Chief Operating Officer, SUEZ Water Advanced Solutions

“Mike Pickett, and Hire Horizons as a whole, have been one of our most consistent and reliable external search firms since we began our relationship with them several years ago. Mike goes out of his way to ensure that our needs are addressed in a timely manner and never quits throughout the entire search, no matter how difficult it is. We know any candidate Mike presents has been thoroughly screened before we see them which separates him from many of the other firms we have used in the past.  On top of maintaining a professional working relationship, we also appreciate Mike’s consistent efforts to support our company’s charitable efforts, as well as growing individual relationships with our team. You can certainly put your trust in Mike and Hire Horizons knowing they will not disappoint.”

  • Tim Eippert, CEO, The MC Group

“Hire Horizons has been our exclusive search partner since I have been with the company. Having worked with other search firms with other companies, you never know what level of performance an executive search firm will provide. I work with Mike Pickett directly and continue to be impressed with his ability to follow through on expectations as well as providing detailed knowledge of the food ingredient space in which we specialize. We have used Hire Horizons for our key sales leaders along with other executive roles within our fast-growing company. They continue to deliver with consistent, timely results and open communication throughout the entire process.”

  • Aaron Jackson, CEO for an International Food Ingredient Company

“I have known the team at HIRE HORIZONS for more than 15 years and have experienced their work ethic and attention to detail first-hand. I have utilized HIRE HORIZONS to fill important Technical Sales, Engineering, and Field Service roles throughout the U.S. while working for two different companies. All of their candidates were thoroughly vetted and had excellent qualifications for the positions I needed to fill and would highly recommend HIRE HORIZONS to others who need high quality talent.”

  • Joe Tirreno, Executive Vice President, Comtech Industries, Inc

“I continue to be really pleased with my experiences with Peggy and Hire Horizons. Very professional and thorough recruiting. Assisting candidates through the process with great professionalism and in providing viable candidates for consideration. Thank you and keep up the great work!”

  • Steve Matson, Director of Milling Operations, Bay State Milling

“Our company is clearly recognized as the market leader in our field, but our success depends on repeat business, so we are only as good as the people we put in front of our customers every day…and Hire Horizons understands this. I’ve worked with Bernie Nutter and his team for several years now and as a result of our successes with them, Hire Horizons is my go-to recruiter when I need external recruiting help. The Hire Horizons team completely understands our business, they are well grounded in our industry, and they know our company extremely well. As a result, they know exactly the kind of people we are looking for and the skills our future employees must possess. Their searches are very thorough and typically we are presented with multiple qualified candidates to interview. I’ve had many positive hiring experiences with Hire Horizons, but one truly stands out as exceptional. I was just about to hire one of their candidates when I received a phone call from Bernie suggesting I hold off hiring that person until I had a chance to interview what he considered “an even better candidate”. As it turned out, we hired the latter candidate and that person has developed into one of my shining sales stars. Bernie and his team are truly committed to customer satisfaction, they are extraordinarily professional, and I would highly recommend their services to anyone wishing to acquire the best talent.”

  • Phil Strader, District Sales Manager, Nalco Water – An Ecolab Company

“John has been a pleasure to work with over the past couple of months. He’s been totally transparent and authentically interested in assisting me in my endeavor to match my experience and professional skill set to a rewarding job and forward-thinking company. John’s believability quotient is off the charts exhibited in how well he follows up and follows through on everything he says he will do for you. It’s been a very refreshing and rewarding experience and I’m happy to recommend John to anyone seeking to be treated and represented professionally! Much respect to you John and thank you again for all you’ve done for me!”

  • Michael Todrzak, Suez Water System Consultant

“Peggy is an amazing person to work with! I recently worked with her for an opportunity at a large Grain/Specialty Milling company. She coached me through the entire hiring process to make sure I was the right candidate for the position. It was critical that both me as well as the hiring company were compatible. I am extremely happy that I took this offer! If it wasn’t for Peggy, I would have missed a great opportunity. I highly recommend both employers looking to hire as well as individuals looking for opportunities to consider Hire Horizons as their partner in the hiring process. Thanks to Hire Horizons and special thanks to Peggy for your professionalism, guidance and support.”

  • Dinesh Prasad, Quality Assurance Manager, Bay State Milling

“I am grateful I had the chance to work with Mike on an opportunity that has changed my life. Mike is not like most recruiters. Mike gets to know you on a professional and personal level to match your job seeking needs. He is very passionate towards one’s success. One of many strong characteristics Mike has is his determination. I lived in a different time zone, where it was three hours behind Mike. Whether it was 6am or 10pm, Mike was there for me to prepare and study for a long and intense interview process. Hire Horizons played a critical role in enabling me to obtain the career I have today for the best global leader in the water treatment industry. Mike is an exceptional individual. I would recommend him and Hire Horizons to anyone seeking a technical career role. They can and will do it! Thanks for changing my life!”

  • Jordan Triantafilidis, Account Engineer, Nalco Water – An Ecolab Company

“Leeanne was an exceptional resource before, during, and after the interviewing process. She was very professional in her vetting process and ensured that I was fully aware of both the pros and cons of the position being filled. She also spent time discussing the personalities of the interviewing parties and what may be key points to focus on. I felt well prepared for the interview and negotiation process. I would highly recommend Hire Horizons as an advocate for both the candidates and the hiring party.”

  • Ron Richards, CPA, CIA, CRMA, Internal Audit Director at University of West Georgia

“It is my pleasure to recommend Bernie Nutter as a highly professional Executive Search Consultant where his #1 priority is seeing that the client’s needs are met. Bernie was successful in helping me attain my current employment, and throughout the entire employment process Bernie was in constant contact with the hiring company and me. He was extremely knowledgeable about the requirements of the job and ensured that my qualifications and experiences matched the position well before introducing me to the company. He was extremely helpful in communicating my needs to the company when we began negotiating my employment. Once I was able to obtain the position, Bernie has followed up on a periodic basis, being truly interested in my transition into my new position. I highly recommend Bernie Nutter and Hire Horizons as skilled Executive Search professionals, ones you can trust implicitly in helping you obtain your next career.”

  • Michael Monson, Business Development Director, TAEUS International Corporation

“Peggy reached out to me via LinkedIn while I was exploring “strategic options” regarding a possible career move. I wasn’t aggressively looking but had decided should the right opportunity come up I’d jump in.

I had already been in touch with several recruiters, but none matched the skill set, personality and professionalism that Peggy projected from day ONE. They say first impressions are critical in establishing a business relationship. I can honestly say that with Peggy and her team at Hire Horizons, its MORE than just a business relationship and makes the job seeker feel extremely valued at a time when perhaps a candidate himself is facing uncertainty in their career path or if they are making the right choice.

Peggy was a true joy to work with, educating, coaching, communicating and most of all actually made the process fun! A true leader in the business who really listens and can fit a candidate into the perfect position in regard to personality, education and experience.

I highly recommend Peggy for both the candidate looking for future placement and for the corporate client who is seeking candidates. You won’t be disappointed! Thank you, Peggy for all the hard work and making the process enjoyable!”

  • Sean Bontkowski, Packaging, Loading, and Warehouse Manager, Bay State Milling

“Mike Pickett helped me get a job that I didn’t think I’d be able to obtain for another 10 years. Like many others he contacted me with a spiel on LinkedIn that I usually look past and delete. The difference between him and the other recruiters was his unique way to find out what my goals and strengths were and apply them as a value proposition to corporations looking for top tier talent. Mike as well as Hire Horizons have relationships with companies that speed up the process as well as give you an insight on how to interview for them. I’m glad I have had the chance to work with Mike and hope he keeps the passion for this job because he’s really good at it.”

  • Femi Ogundadegbe, Regional Sales Manager, Hach

“Paul leverages his very diverse skillset to help companies find top talent for their needs. He was able to help me strategically find a position with a company that has turned out to be a game changer for my career. I cannot stress enough how easy Paul and Hire Horizons made the entire interview process. They made my future a priority and I am enjoying a great new career because of their assistance.”

  • Chad Barnhill, District Sales Representative, Nalco Water – An Ecolab Company

“Mike is a very professional recruiter. He represents his clients well, always making sure that a candidate is a perfect fit for an open position. Mike does a great job helping a candidate be prepared for an interview. More than anything else, Mike is completely honest about what his client needs, so neither a client nor a candidate invests their valuable time unnecessarily. I’ve never met Mike in person (only telephone and LinkedIn) but I consider him a friend.”

  • Dan Dempsey, AstenJohnson

“Peggy is very compassionate and determined in her recruiting and goes above and beyond what the role calls for. Peggy takes the time to ensure the candidate and the client are both getting the best match that will lead to long term success. She works hard to coach and prepare the candidate for interviews and takes the time to explain the position and expectations. Every step is communicated with regularly provided updates about how the process is going. Peggy listens to needs/concerns and isn’t satisfied until her client/candidate is. I can’t thank her enough.”

  • Shaan Mohammed, Engineer and Business Owner

“Mike and I crossed paths during a period when I was searching for a career change. Because of Mike’s understanding of my industry and goals, we were able to have great success with locating an employer that aligned with my interests and vision. During the whole process, Mike was extremely diligent and agile with follow up and feedback. If you’re looking to improve your current position or hire your next star employee, I would highly recommend Mike as your professional recruiter.”

  • Sam Metzen, Sales Engineer, Axchem USA

“Paul has a very unique viewpoint on recruiting because it is honed from having been a successful sales professional prior to recruiting. Paul was able to leverage his many years of industry knowledge combined with his excellent listening skills enabling him to have an outstandingly effective recruiting style. He and the entire team at Hire Horizons were very easy to work with. They clearly understood my needs as a candidate, and they were able to very clearly and honestly convey what their client needed with their open opportunity. Paul has been an outstanding asset to me, and I would be happy to work with him and Hire Horizons again in any aspect of recruiting.”

  • Nicholas Lucero, US/Canada Sales Manager, IN USA

“Mike Pickett has assisted us with several tough searches, and it has been a very positive experience working with him.  As an experienced Recruiter myself, I have high standards of what I expect when working with an agency.  Mike does a great job of vetting appropriate candidates, completing a thorough write-up, following up after interviews, and negotiating offers on our behalf.  He has always been very professional and courteous in our conversations and through email.  I can wholeheartedly recommend Mike Pickett; he truly goes above and beyond to save us time and reduce the stress of finding top quality candidates.”

  • Emmie Kroodsma, Corporate Recruiter, MC Group

“Michael and I came to know each other first in October 2015. Since that time, I have been deeply impressed with Michael’s professionalism and perfection. His art of motivation, his realistic and strategic approach, were extremely helpful for me. Hire Horizons would be an asset for anyone, especially at a time of a job change when one needs the help the most. His coaching, insight about the employer, and advice throughout the interview process made me feel like I was talking to a close friend. Michael worked very hard, was very disciplined, and was always optimistic about our ultimate success. I was very fortunate having had the opportunity to receive help from Michael and Hire Horizons. I would recommend Hire Horizons to anyone.”
