Testimonials

“Friedman Associates originally placed me with a prominent Fortune 50 company. I have subsequently used the firm for multiple recruiting assignments during the past 9 years with excellent success in every case. Principals, not associates, complete each assignment and the quality shows. The candidates presented are actionable and closely fit the stated profiles yielding a high success rate. I can highly recommend the firm and personally prefer Friedman Associates relative to larger, more well-known ‘executive recruiting brands.’” – Bo Andersen, former VP Business Development / M&A, Honeywell ACS
