Derek is a true professional that works hard to understand the personnel requirements of your company and then he goes out and finds the best qualified individuals. Derek did not waste my time by sending resumes that were not qualified or desirable. He has the highest integrity and I strongly endorse his company Pinnacle Careers.

Derek - A great talent finding talent! Derek always takes time to understand the open position, duties, type of personality I'm seeking, etc. Not only is he just a great guy and easy to deal with, he does excellent sourcing and phone pre-screenings! Not only is the depth and quality of information Derek sends me very insightful of the candidate, it’s usually spot on! This totally eliminates a lot of what would normally be time consuming for me. Thank you Derek for all your hard work and effort you put in sourcing some of my best team-members!

I worked with Derek when he recruited me to work for Cerebral Solutions and I could not have asked for a better experience in a positon that required relocation. Derek ensured to keep me abreast of any care or concerns of Cerebral Solutions as well as continuing to keep me in the loop as far as what was going on in different points in the hiring process. He was quick in responding to my inquiries and never gave me the run around if he was not immediately aware of what the answer was. I would definitely recommend Derek as well as utilize his services again.
