I have been collaborating with Dean as my main external Recruitment partner since I joined my company 3 years ago. I carefully handpicked him and kept working closely with him at a partner / strategic level since the early days when our company was considered a startup employing just some 30 employees. I keep on using his services as he proved himself time after time. Dean is a solid contributor to our recruitment culture and strategy which has at its core the aim of creating an A-class-type-talent of organisation (without compromising on quality) with the objective of capitalising on this, and use it as a solid attraction and also a retention strategy. When we successfully grew the company to circa 110+ awesome team of ninjas, the people recruited raised the value of the company to over 52 million euros. Resulting in a very successful acquisition last year by the an innovative diverse iGaming player. Dean continuously assists me to identify, attract, and successfully recruit key people for various roles at all levels across the entire group. His internationally wide network of good people is key for us to find and connect with the right talent in the business in quick time frames. He provides me a wider pool of interesting candidates that are difficult to find on the market. This enabled us to recruit quality people within stipulated time lines and in time for product launches or related operational initiatives, while at the same time maintaining business continuity, especially, when people related needs and problems crop up within the business and pressure is full-on. What strikes me most, is his ability to understand my demanding needs and provides me with spot-on profiles in a right-first-time framework. He follows up without putting extra pressure or taking too much of my important time – he is low maintenance – which is great. Additionally hep understands well when to be extra patient at times without asking too many questions and acts rationally. Our company now employs circa 500 people in various European locations. While our team grows bigger and bigger and we pass through continuos changes and, we upgrade our systems, change and increase our tech stack, develop our ways of collaborating as a team and, re-organise our flat structures while we develop our authentic company culture, Dean keeps on maintaining his lead as we pass through changes and stays as my preferred recruitment partner. Providing my team the right people for the jobs we have and changing requirements. I highly recommend and look forward in keeping my business relationship!
