Chris Eckhaus has completed three upper management level searches for Z Line Designs. The three were: VP sales for a new product line--Leather furniture, VP sales Casual furniture, and Senior VP/General Manager China Operations. In all instances Christine provided us with very qualified candidates in a relatively short time span. She is professional in her approach and provided us with insight as to the position requirements as well. I would recommend her for any mid to upper level management search.
