My relationship with Paul and Dinte Executive Search dates back to 2007. I introduced him to the Vice President of Human Resources for the organization I was with at the time and she promptly hired Paul and Dinte to conduct several retained leadership search assignments. As a client, I was impressed with the thoroughness, transparency, and efficiency of Dinte’s process. He and his team took the time to understand not only the core competencies for the role, but more importantly the key cultural attributes of the ideal candidate. Throughout the course of the search, the Dinte team was in regular communication with us to calibrate the search parameters and ensure the candidates they were providing were hitting the mark, a characteristic uncommon in most other executive search firms.

Last year, Paul reached out to me regarding a CEO search assignment Dinte was conducting for a dynamic defense contractor. This time as a candidate rather than a client, I was equally amazed with the level of professionalism and personal touch the Dinte team demonstrated. Throughout the process, he and his team took the time to further our relationship which gave me the feeling that they had my best interests in mind. Additionally, they provided comprehensive guidance and support which I believe ultimately allowed me to become the successful CEO candidate for NTA.

My relationship with Paul began at a professional level, but he and I have since developed a close friendship. Throughout the years, it has been the personal interaction with the Dinte team that has solidified my view that they are a firm you can trust. I will continue to use Dinte Executive Search in the future, and will unequivocally recommend them to other organizations seeking retained executive search services.
