"I miss someone of Alex's calibre in the market which can be tough and unrewarding. Someone who I had rapport with, who could patiently coax out the hard to find type candidate, who treated their candidates with genuine respect and sensitivity, who could generate repeat business. And who knew how to celebrate when he landed the right candidate for the right role at the right time." - Richard Chan, Senior Manager, Group Finance
