“MJ Scott has worked with our company for over 14 years! We go back to her and her team over and over because she has really taken the time to understand our unique culture. She works closely with us to understand what we need today and how we envision the role to evolve as our company does. She is tireless in her approach to find us the perfect fit! She believes that the culture fit of everyone she places here is as crucial as the deep skills and talent we need to do business. I highly recommend her to any company that is looking to build a relationship with someone they can go to and know they will get the best person possible!”

CEO of $2B, Minnesota-based Manufacturer and COO of Big Box Retailer

“MJ brings a deep understanding of the retail business model to her role as recruiting “Partner”. She acts as a “Partner” by investing the time necessary to understand both the needs of the position and the culture of the organization to insure a “good-fit”. She is a true professional; she is personable, objective, and provides honest and direct feedback! Moreover, she is really talented at identifying the minute details that differentiate the “Stars” from the crowd!”

Director of Global Talent Acquisition of Global Consulting Firm

“MaryJeanne and her firm is the best! I’ve worked with her for many years and on many searches. She gets results and her consultative approach and no-nonsense style are refreshing. She knows her candidates very well and her candidates respect her. She takes the time to really understand the skill sets necessary but even more uniquely, she really digs in to understand the culture and style of the company as well as the individual styles of each department and hiring manage she is working with. I have worked with almost every major national executive search firm and she is one of the best search firms I have engaged and I will continue to work with Mary Jeanne and her firm for many years to come.”

CEO of Chicago-based Luxury Home Furnishings Manufacturer

“MaryJeanne came to me highly recommended. I hired her to fill a number of Vice President and Director level positions across a broad range of disciplines (HR, IT, Merchandising, and Finance). She, in every case, developed a well thought-out position description, candidate attributes, and took time to understand our company’s culture and the key “must haves” which we jointly identified. For each assignment she carefully screened potential candidates, created a comprehensive work history, and a summary of her thoughts regarding the fit and attributes that each person she put in front of us must haves. In every case my work was minimized as she only brought forth individuals that would fit our needs. Our challenge was not to pick the candidate that could do the job rather to select the strongest of a group that could all be successful in the position. I would highly recommend her to anyone with a challenging search. She is quick, effective, and a pleasure to work with.”

Vice President of HR, New York-based Manufacturer

“We have used MJ Scott for several searches within our organization from operations roles to merchandising roles. She has found top candidates that fit the culture of this organization. MaryJeanne and her team are great group and very results orientated. They do not waste your time with candidates that will not be the right fit for your organization. MaryJeanne takes the time to learn about the company and the culture. All of her hires have stayed with the organization and have excelled.”
