To whom it may concern:


My name is [CONFIDENTIAL], currently Senior Vice President, Organizational Capability (HR), [CONFIDENTIAL].  We are a $1 billion, privately held, producer of [CONFIDENTIAL] located in [CONFIDENTIAL].


I have been an HR professional for over twenty years, with experience in large corporations, in the food, manufacturing, telecommunications, and service industries.   I have had the pleasure of knowing Tim Barton for about three years.


Being located in a small town in northwest [CONFIDENTIAL], we have recruiting challenges; and yet, as a competitive company on an aggressive growth trajectory, we also have an intense need for top talent.


We identified a need for an executive search in several critical, key positions; Vice President of Sales, CFO, SVP of Logistics and a referral to our outside Advisory Board.


When we engaged Barton Executive Search as our strategic partner for these searches:  


Tim learned our operations - Tim spent a lot of upfront effort learning our operations and specific needs.  He was on a first name basis with key stakeholders and facilitated our analysis of the competencies and skills needed in the position.


Rifle approach to potential candidates – Tim continually provided us with carefully screened, highly qualified individuals; and for each of these positions, we found ourselves in the enviable position of having to choose from several ideally suited candidates. 


Vitality and professionalism - All through the search, I heard nothing but praise for Tim’s progress reports, analysis of candidates, and his unending drive for excellence in every phase.


Please feel free to contact me for additional information or if I can answer any questions.
