 "Working with Reed is not just a process, it’s a relationship,"  Al Foster, Vice President, Lighthouse Financial Corp.


“I have known Reed for over 15 years and found him to be very professional, creative, and diligent.  When our company was struggling to find a sales person in the Northwest, Reed’s innovate thinking helped us locate one of our current top producers from among his numerous contacts.  Along with his knowledge and professionalism, Reed goes the extra mile to help understand your business needs and recommend the right people for the job.  Reed is exceptionally honest and very easy to work with.”  Tyler Grady, former Chief Marketing Officer at ExpoCredit, LLC


"My experience with Katie was a pleasurable one from start to finish. I am certainly glad she contacted me to gauge my interest for a position elsewhere as I could not be happier where I landed. Katie is very personable and made the hiring process an enjoyable one. She is knowledgeable of the industry and was able to address any questions I had. I was never in the dark throughout the process as she continuously provided updates on the progress and was quick to respond through email or phone when needed. I can not recommend Katie enough!"  Andrew Kizer, Field Examiner at Presidential Financial Corporation

“Reed and I worked together at Textron Financial for 14 years. During that time, in senior level management positions, Reed demonstrated a remarkable ability to recognize and hire talented employees. Reed would dig deeper than the words on the resume and understood the importance of matching candidates to the organization’s corporate culture. These talents should serve Reed and his clients well in finding the right person the first time.”  David Retallick, former ABL Division President at Textron Financial Corporation


"Katie was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She differentiates herself from anyone else in her industry through her authenticity, responsiveness, and benevolence."  Joshua Chefec, Vice President at JPMorgan Chase

"From the moment I first started talking to Katie, I could tell that she was knowledgeable about my industry and I could trust her. If you have a "wish-list" of the things a recruiter would do for you Katie hits them. From start to finish - her tips, experience and advice were right on point and she responds quickly, even when it is snowing in Atlanta! Katie didn't help me find a job, she helped me find a home."  Michael Royston, former Vice President at Nutmeg Capital Group


"I had the pleasure of working with Reed Howard at Textron Financial for many years.  In the business of commercial finance, hiring and maintaining a quality sales force is one of the most challenging tasks.  In many cases, finding applicants is not difficult.  The most challenging part  lies in doing the appropriate level of due diligence up front to make sure, among other things, that  the individual is a good fit for the company, has the right level of experience and possesses a solid work ethic in addition to integrity that is beyond reproach.  Such due diligence requires “digging” for information beyond the resume and appropriate evaluation of the information gathered.  The chance of success is much better when the process is being handled by an individual like Reed Howard with real life experience and a track record of success finding and hiring talented people."  Jay Carter, former President and COO of Textron Financial 


“Reed and I worked together for many years at Textron Financial and during some of those years he tried to convince me to move into a business development position. Fortunately, Reed recognized my ability to transition from Operations Manager into a Sales role and introduced me to my current employer. It was a great career move and I couldn't be happier!”  Cynthia Basolo, Business Development Specialist at Loves Financial


"Katie is a true professional. Not only does she have the connections and respect in the commercial finance industry, but more importantly she puts the needs of her client as the top priority. Great listener and effective solutions provider! Katie helped me out tremendously and I am more than happy to recommend her."  Zlatko Hrbacek, Investment Banking Associate at Madison Street Capital
