Jim and team worked skillfully and efficiently behind the scenes between the sign and close of our major acquisition. The merger of two large enterprises required the quick stand-up of an entire treasury function. We required a dynamic treasury leader with experience, know-how, and the ability to hit the ground running, someone who could deal expertly with multiple internal and external constituents. Jim required one call to set the expectations of exactly the type of person we were looking for. From there Jim identified multiple candidates. We interviewed his top candidate and the rest is history. All of this was smoothly executed on a tight timeline.

Tim is going to be a great hire for us. Thank you very much for your help in finding him and then pointing him in our direction. This search has far and away been the best search experience in my history and I could not recommend anything to you that could have made it better. When we have another need you will be my first call.

MFG provides very comprehensive services, top caliber candidates, and the most detailed presentation of each candidate’s background that I have seen when compared to other recruiting firms. They really work to identify that not only is the candidate a good fit for the position, but that the position is a good fit for the candidate.

I am based in the U.K. with my facility on the other side of the Atlantic. It was underperforming badly so it was critical that I got the right leadership in place, quickly. MFG did exactly that and the impact has been transformational.

From day one, Jim Baran understood my background and career desires.  With his extensive amount of connections, he was able to match me with the right business and the right opportunity.  Throughout the entire recruiting process, he was on point and able to provide instant feedback and guidance.  Having an advocate in your job placement is essential in getting a good match and Jim was on top of his game.

Your team has contributed immensely to our efforts along the way with an excellent batting average on candidates. There is no recruiter who understands what AIP is trying to accomplish better than you. No recruiter has taken an interest and visited the number of plants your team has. Jim probably does a better job selling AIP opportunities better than we do.
