Bob Kedrosky

Director Human Resources, Trend Micro

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Marler & Associates since 2001. This engagement has bridged several roles and companies (Broadview Networks 2009-2010 and Natural Convergence 2001-2009). I’ve always been impressed with the way Kevin acted as a lead consultant bringing to bear both a strong understanding of the unique nature of our mandate, and a team that was able to go through the process of selecting candidates. The engagement with the two completely different companies was also very impressive as demands and polices changed drastically, while Kevin essentially remained a key member of my team.

Larry Strickland

VP Silhouette Development, Broadview Networks

Marler & Associates came highly recommended by key people in the industry and most importantly by previously placed candidates. It has been a pleasure to work with Kevin and Chris to fill senior level roles. They truly understand the nature of our business and were able to present numerous suitable candidates in an extremely short period of time. I look forward to working with Marler & Associates again in the near future.
