Kaplan Partners was not known to us when they were first recommended. Once engaged, however, they took the time to get to know our culture as well as our business strategy, and began a string of very successful and diverse C-suite hires. We have been delighted with our relationship with Kaplan Partners, and look forward to continuing to partner with them.
