Success Stories

We derived this from studying organizations that experienced an existential threat, then navigated through it successfully (conversely, we also looked at those that did not survive). We can quickly assess, identify, and recruit leaders with these traits.
"Finding talent is more than a transaction for us. We seek to forge lasting partnerships based on trust, enabling us to provide clients with strategic counsel, deep market insights, and access to the best talent in the market. We are guided by a common commitment to excellence, diligence, collaboration, and grace, which is reflected in every engagement we undertake."
- RSR Founder, Russ Reynolds
