Holbrook Search Group

"Kevin is that rare breed of recruiter who delivers high quality results and demonstrates superior market knowledge, but always puts integrity and client service first.” He is a great partner for us when our methods fall short."

– Director, Talent Acquisition

“Kevin is by far the most professional and detail-oriented recruiter I’ve ever worked with. His knowledge of the Chicago Audit market is second to none, he always does what he says he’ll do, and it was a pleasure working with him. At this point in my career, and I’ve been around for a while, I would not even consider using anyone else for my recruiting needs.”

– Director Internal Audit

“I highly recommend Kevin as a recruiter in the accounting and finance space. He knows this market, has an extensive network, and has a high level of integrity. His representations are fair and reliable, and he works hard to put together talent matches that work. “A uniquely competent headhunter.”

– Vice President Internal Audit

“Like so many other accounting professionals, I have known Kevin for many years as he placed me in my first corporate Audit role out of Deloitte back in 1997. He is consummate professional. Beyond the knowledge and responsiveness required for success, Kevin is consistently “dialed in” to current happenings in our field. His focus is immeasurable to prospective employees and employers alike”

– Chief Audit Executive

“Kevin is very well-networked and seems to know everyone. He is one of few Recruiters who actually understands this business (Audit and Risk Management) and the types of passive candidates we seek.”

He has helped several of my colleagues at different parts of their career and dedicates himself to placing individuals in good positions where they will excel and grow.

Steve will get the job done well and strives to put together long-term solutions.”

“Rob is a dedicated recruiter with a keen focus on the controllership silos in the Chicago region. I have known Rob for approximately 12 years, during which time he has graciously charted my career, periodically contacting me with potential opportunities that he has identified as a potential mutually beneficial fit for me and the hiring firm. He is organized and has a very broad and deep network, with an insightful perspective on our industry.”

“I have known Kevin since 1990 when I was an EDP Auditor with Arthur Andersen and have worked with him since that time.

I would highly recommend her to any company seeking a professional, experienced, and responsive recruiter.”
