I own BIG 6 Search International (BIG6JOBS) a successful Recruiting practice and support one of largest, most successful Management Consulting firms in the World. I have engaged Carl Pungerchar on multiple projects/occasions in the past - where in most cases he functioned as a sourcer of talent. Regardless of how difficult the position, he had an innate ability to positively ID and recruit the best of the best - all while developing a close relationship with, and becoming an advocate to every candidate he worked with … Carl is highly collaborative by nature, and is one of the most detailed oriented people I've had the pleasure to work with … Carl employs all of the best practices, latest and greatest technologies available to recruiters today, but won't hesitate go old school and "deep dive" for candidates when the situation is warranted (he's also an excellent 'direct' recruiter). His "say what you're going to do - and do what you say" approach ingratiates him to both client and candidate alike, and his ability to find solutions to often complex issues that arise in the Management Consulting vertical - what by nature is a very fluid business - is extraordinary. I will not hesitate to utilize Carl Pungerchar's services in the future.

I highly recommend Carl as a recruiter and talent partner. I had the opportunity to work with him at several companies throughout the years in which I supported. He is excellent at reading the skills and personality attributes and finding the perfect fit. He is thorough in communicating the needs of his client groups to the candidate and setting expectations on both sides of the aisle. He is also astute at recognizing how past experiences which are not literally identical can still be applied to new positions with similar qualities. His preparation and screening abilities are excellent which help create the win-win in the end for all parties involved.
He takes ownership and responsibility for providing the best talent to his clients. Carl is action oriented, produces results through proactive candidate sourcing and screening, seeking to do the work it takes find and identify talent rather than just pass on resumes for review. His communication is timely and informative.
Carl is excellent at what he does!!!!
As the principal of GenStaffing, I have had the opportunity to engage and collaborate with Carl Pungerchar on several projects over the last 8 years or so … I've always appreciated his no nonsense approach, and his innate ability to "see through the forest" identifying the ideal candidates for whatever the job requisition. Carl delivers top notch prospects by employing expert level sourcing techniques, and building strong candidate pipelines - on time and within budget - allowing us to make good on our deliverables with a 100% success rate. As a rule, I seek out feedback from each client we partner up with at the conclusion of a project, and Carl has always received high marks. "Professionally polished", "motivated", "responsive", "communicative", "detail oriented", "prompt and effective", "upfront and forthright", "knowledgeable", and "leaves no stone unturned" - are just a few of the superlatives that I've heard used to describe his approach and demeanor. I've also come to know CP on a personal level over the years, and find him to be an engaging, good natured guy with a great sense of humor - a professional contributor who embraces the positive finding common ground solutions to whatever the issue. I look forward to employing and working with Carl on future projects going forward.
I have known Carl for over 20 years and in this time we haves worked as colleague, I have employed him and engaged him as a contractor on several occasions - working closely with various clients along the way. In all situations, Carl exceeded expectations. He is extremely crafty as a Sourcer and operates at a Sr. Level. His communication skills are effective and always transparent. Carl's attention to detail is excellent, he is easy to work with, and is always willing to go the extra mile. Carl is very collaborative, and understands the value of team work. He has the temperament of an agency recruiter (sense of urgency), combined with the polish of a corporate recruiter.
His approach to a new requisition includes: a thorough requirement intake with the customer or hiring manager creating a recruiting plan he then executes; he provides weekly updates on progress as well as information related to market analysis. If the information has any impact on his hiring plan or if adjustments need to be made, he incorporates those changes mid-stream.
In closing Carl is detailed oriented, professional, hardworking, and a talented Sr. Recruiter. He is able to interface with hiring managers, leadership and candidates at all levels. He is creative and resourceful with a strong focus on networking and the direct recruiting of top talent. He has an strong work ethic, integrity, and operates with a "can do" attitude. He will put in the hours to make the seemingly impossible a reality. He is tenacious, confident, and fiercely loyal to the customer’s objectives.
I worked with Carl Pungerchar while working as HR Director at Sweda. Carl was asked to help with some hard to fill positions. Difficult in the sense that the hiring manager was unsure as to what they were seeking in a candidate which made it very confusing to all; but Carl was very patient, asked a lot of questions and was very responsive to my needs. He has a strong interest in helping people and genuine concern to balance his need to help the candidate and the employer.
Carl knows how to steer the right candidates to my attention because he took the time to learn our business and our needs. Carl focused on getting results, he ensured both myself, the hiring manager and the candidate felt they had a real exchange of information and that everyone was comfortable with the decision
