Dear Tim:


This letter is to thank you sincerely for your help in rebuilding a “World Class”

senior leadership team in [CONFIDENTIAL].  You spent a significant amount of time

upfront understanding the need of the company and determining ideal candidate 

profiles, which resulted in outstanding hires.


Barton Executive Search has placed nine exceptional candidates that have been

instrumental in the building [CONFIDENTIAL]. Significantly, your first assignment, a

VPGM search, was inherited from a major retained search firm, which had failed

for six months, to fill this position. Both [CONFIDENTIAL] and I were blown away  

with your team’s ability to fill this position and four other VP level roles from start 

of engagement to the start date of these candidates in 5 weeks.


The sense of urgency, the rapid speed of “successful” searches and the quality

of the candidates delivered has been exceptional. In particular, I was very

impressed an pleased with your personal ownership of [CONFIDENTIAL] success.

Beyond those critical search successes, you have proven to be of great value to

our team; your investment in the overall success at [CONFIDENTIAL] has been evident

through your willingness to also advise us on relevant management issues.


Your support as a partner to [CONFIDENTIAL] is greatly appreciated. I look forward to

Continuing our work with Barton Executive Search at [CONFIDENTIAL] and other

[CONFIDENTIAL] companies.
