Testimonials

Jim Hemmer
CEO, CorporateRewards
“I first met Marc through one of his clients that was recruiting an enterprise software CEO and was immediately struck by the depth of his questions and the thoroughness of his efforts to get to know me. He is professional and engaging and “not your typical headhunter.” Subsequently, I engaged Marc and Leadership Capital Group to find me a Chief Technology Officer. He impressed me with his depth of technology knowledge and relevant experience within a broad ecosystem of companies. He presented several outstanding CTO candidates to us, all of which had been thoroughly vetted not just from an experience basis, but more importantly for personality and cultural fit. I would recommend Marc and his colleague Evan Groff without hesitation.” top>

Erika Moore
Regional Director Latin America and the Caribbean, Travelport
“Jason, Pablo and the Leadership Capital Group team bring credibility and leadership to the search industry in Latin America. They worked with intention to understand our needs, and completed two very strategic and important searches in Colombia/Peru and Venezuela, each in under ninety days, executing the assignments with creativity, discipline and an outstanding work ethic. They are truly outstanding professionals and I would recommend them for any search opportunity in the region.” top>

Tim Bartholomew
Group Director & CEO, Next Controls and Tutela Medical Monitoring Systems
“Executive search is not inexpensive but sometimes you get what you pay for—like we did when we retained Marc Lewis and Leadership Capital Group. In our search for a head of North American Sales, we were clearly a priority for LCG which helped us successfully complete the search in only 86 days with a high quality slate of desirable candidates even though we are based in England and were separated during most of the search by the Atlantic Ocean.” top>

“SAP has worked successfully with Marc Lewis and his team, and we have recently engaged his services again at the senior executive level . In one of our most strategically critical executive leadership searches, Marc and his team left few stones unturned in their passion to uncover, attract, and recruit the best possible Senior Vice President to drive our global solution marketing and global field marketing services organizations … From search inception, through reference checking, and assistance with negotiation, our expectations were exceeded in both the result and the experience of working together … They facilitated and enabled us and the best candidate to come to terms that were truly win-win … We look forward to Marc and his team continuing as a partner with SAP in other important searches worldwide.” top>

Jeff Thomas
CEO, Ambassadors Group (NASDAQ:EPAX)
“Marc Lewis, Bill Liguori and the LCG team have taken on, worked hard and produced excellent results on search engagements that were successful and are adding significant value to our enterprise. Any search is challenging, and their work in bringing on a Board member and key executives in marketing/general management and the financial officer leadership roles was laudable.
Their team’s management of the search process itself was great, and the female and diversity success that their range of candidates brought is also good for our business. Their additional focus on bringing us useful market intelligence beyond purely transactional search was also valuable.” top>

We were very pleased both with their unwavering focus on delivery and on the final candidate that they presented to us and who continues to do well at Visa. I look forward to continuing our relationship with Bill and the partners at LCG.” top>

Sean McManus
Chief Human Resource Officer, Modspace, Former Exec VP, Operations and Services, North America – Symrise GmbH
“Marc Lewis and Bill Liguori were successful in executing a very difficult search for Symrise given the large international component and the strong influence of our parent company in Germany. Marc and Bill not only delivered top tier candidates, they were excellent coaches on the market, and were able to grasp the nature of our business very quickly. Their professionalism, process, responsiveness, customer focus, thorough communication, and focus on execution is second to none. Earlier this year, the principals of Leadership Capital Group and Symrise were successful in partnering together in our quest for strong human capital talent.” top>

“Beyond the search itself and the assessment of the candidates, for which Marc Lewis shows real professionalism, he brought an unfortunately not so common additional value on the table: He took the time to really understand our company strategy, needs and culture.” top>

Ron Nash
Partner, InterWest Partners
“We hired Marc Lewis for his focused approach and strong network within the high tech industry. Marc’s high energy and fast pace resulted in a great conclusion. We hired a top notch candidate whom we would not have been able to see without Marc. We got our first choice of a candidate on board and working within 90 days of starting the search. Quick results and high quality candidates, that’s a winning combination.” top>

Tsvi Gal
General Partner and Head of Technology and Operations, Exigen Capital
“”As a private equity investor and former CIO and CTO of several major global technology and financial services organizations, I would recommend Marc Lewis and Bill Liguori for being a great combination of savvy business executives and executive recruiters who have built a global boutique search firm that is an order of magnitude above even the best boutiques in the retained search business. In addition to doing great work for his clients, Marc recruited me into the CTO position at one of the world’s three largest investment banks and understood how important it was to recruit an executive with global experience to mesh with the global expansion of one of the world’s largest financial services firms. Their own business experience and the right strategy to build a firm rather than just buy the ability to advertise a ‘global network’ is a huge differentiator, with their multi-lingual team and searches done in 45 countries from the Americas, to Europe the Middle East and Africa plus even some searches in Asia.” top>

Rob Christian
President, US Operations, Clear Cell Group Limited
“You (Marc Lewis and his team) did a VP search (for me while I was at Symphony IRI as the EVP & General Manager) for our largest customer area. The guy I was able to hire, what a terrific guy. One of the very best hires I had ever made, so thank you!” top>
