We produce results! One of the best ways to gauge our abilities is to read what some of our clients are saying about us.

“Dana Kowen has recently completed several senior level HR searches for my organization. Dana’s speed and thoroughness in the recruitment process qualify her as an outstanding recruiter. However, it is her ability to help determine the success factors in a given role and quickly and accurately match to potential candidates that make her a value-added partner. I will continue to use Dana as a key resource in staffing my organization, and I would highly recommend her for any potential assignments within other firms.

“I’ve hired Dana several times for extremely difficult searches. She has consistently delivered high-caliber candidates, with all the qualifications and requirements specified, in a fast and effective manner. She has represented herself well to my company and the candidates she has identified. She is a real value-added partner, and I will continue to use her for highly sensitive searches.”
VP of Human Resources – ConAgra Foods

“Dana Kowen has become a strategic partner in providing top talent for our organization, and is really an extended part of our corporate family! Dana has successfully assisted our organization with the build-out of talent in our Human Resource function at all levels across our enterprise. Not only does she have an eye for good talent, but she is responsive and efficient in working with multiple Recruiters. She is a true professional and pleasure to work with! Dana is my first contact as I need outside recruiting assistance!”
Director of Staffing – ConAgra Foods
“As an HR executive, I have had the privilege of working with some very talented executive search professionals. Dana Kowen sets the standard by which I evaluate all others. She is incredibly thorough, timely and passionate, and her ability to assess/evaluate talent prior to presentation is exceptional. This obviously leads to huge efficiency gains in the hiring process. I would highly recommend Dana and her team to any company seeking top-notch results from their search partner.”
VP of Human Resources – Ecolabs
“Thank you for your tremendous efforts and dedication in assisting us with filling our management and sales openings throughout our company. Many times, you could have become frustrated with our demands in seeking just the right ‘fit,’ but you have continually stuck to it, never giving up. Not only have you actively and aggressively recruited on our behalf, but you have done it with professionalism, sensitivity and humor. It is a joy to work with you.”
VP of Staffing – Von Hoffmann Corporation
“I have found Dana to have a refreshing and value driven approach to senior level search engagements. The time she spends up front to understand specific requirements and be candid about her ability to meet those requirements and bring tangible value to the process is notable. I would highly recommend Dana.”
VP Sales & Marketing – Sourcelink
“…Dana is more of a consultant than a vendor actually, and I highly recommend her recruiting services. You get more than a vendor….you get a wise partner.”
Director of Recruiting – Bally Fitness
“…my staff and I have worked fairly extensively with her firm over the past year for positions in both Human Resources and Sales. I have found Dana to be highly professional, very focused and diligent in providing executive search services to R.R. Donnelley. I have been most impressed by the quality and diversity of the candidate slates she has provided. Also, Dana is extremely good in effectively managing the recruiting process for both the candidate and her client companies. She provides candidates who meet the profile and does this in a fast, efficient manner. The combination of these attributes makes Dana an unusually good source of high caliber talent and, at the same time, someone who is very easy to work with.”
VP of Recruiting – RR Donnelley
“I have been working with Dana Kowen Associates for over a year, and Dana has worked on and filled a few key positions for my organization. Dana is not only persistent, detailed and quick in filling my organization’s toughest job openings, but she is also extremely thoughtful and able to build immediate rapport with clients.”
HR Manager – Harley Davidson Financial Services
“Many thanks for your help in recruiting candidates for the recent Account Coordinator/Manager position open on our team. You clearly understand the background & experience levels we target because all of the candidates you presented had excellent, relevant credentials. The candidate we hired has been a tremendous asset to our region. Thanks again!”
Client Services Director – Moore Wallace, an RR Donnelley company
“In securing your services, you quickly bought discipline and process to our approach. The result was that within 45-60 days of starting the process with you, we had navigated through a complex process and added a fabulous new employee to the Harte-Hanks organization!“
