In searching for a Director of Financial Planning & Analysis last year, we were referred to Burchard and Associates. Not having used search firms in the past, we were unsure of the process and candidly uncertain of the likely results. As it turned out, there was no need to worry. Steve Burchard took the time to understand our exact needs and then presented very qualified candidates from which to choose. In the last year, we have had Burchard and Associates conduct two more searches for senior finance professionals with equally great results. Needless to say, we are very pleased with Burchard and Associates services and highly recommend them.
Bill Hinderer, President/CEO, Tacony Corporation
Steve was a valuable resource throughout the entire recruitment process. From my very first conversation with Steve, I was impressed with his professionalism and his desire to find the right fit for the candidate as well as the employer. He kept me well informed and was a great resource during the preparation stage and when an offer was made. I would recommend Burchard & Associates to anyone looking to secure a new role in the future.
Julie Kluesner, Controller, PayneCrest Electric & Communications
Steve continues to be a trusted resource for me in many ways. His value stems not just from finding and presenting relevant opportunities but also from providing great counsel throughout the decision-making process. I was fortunate to have multiple opportunities in front of me, each with their own positive and negative attributes along with the typical uncertainty that accompanies a job change. Steve took a great deal of time simply listening to my concerns and then helped me weigh the various alternatives. Steve appreciates that while a job change presents an exciting opportunity, there is also considerable strain and stress leading up to that point as well. There is a personal nature to Steve’s approach and it truly sets him apart in his field.
Brad Overby, Director of FP&A, Tacony Corporation
Steve and his team put me at ease throughout the recruitment, interview and offer letter process. They gave me the insight on the culture and the organization’s management style that made it possible for me to be comfortable delivering my narrative that ultimately landed me the job. I would highly recommend the firm for your hiring needs.
Anthony C. Lloyd, Director of Finance, Mid-America Transplant Services
Burchard and Associates came highly recommended by a trusted professional and I was impressed from the first phone call. I could tell that Ronda understood the urgency of my need. She quickly explained how the process worked. I was astounded and relieved to receive nine viable applicants with great background information within 48 hours of our first call. I loved the spirited conversation regarding the strengths of each applicant and the collaborative process we used to narrow the field for our first round of interviews. We were able to conduct and complete the search within 10 days, which seemed impossible. I started this process a bit skeptical about the whole concept of recruitment and was greatly surprised and relieved to realize so much value out of the experience. In addition to the candidate pool that was provided, the support and objective counsel through the process made me and our internal team approach this hire with more focus and clarity. We are thrilled with the candidate we selected–and I believe she is thrilled with her position which makes me know we made the right decision.
