Joe Nolte

VP Sales, Fokker Aerotron

“I’ve known Craig professionally for over three years. I reached out to Craig over the summer to help fill a sales position that required direct sales experience with component maintenance and Latin America relationships and Spanish language skills. Working through the traditional posting process had not realized talent with the right combination of skills. Craig changed that. Within a few weeks, he had presented multiple qualified candidates to consider. In a matter of weeks I had been able to move forward to interviews which proceeded to a successful offer down select. Craig’s industry connections and professional relationships paid off. When you are in search of qualified human capita, I highly recommend Craig.”
