Chris Kocek

CEO & Founder at Gallant

Bob goes the extra mile when it comes to helping you tell your story to potential employers. Not only did he help me refine my resume so it was cleaner and more engaging, he also coached me in a couple of mock interviews so that my answers were focused and much more succinct. He was always available for additional questions and he made me feel more confident with every conversation. The level of personal attention he devoted throughout the process was amazing. I can't recommend him enough!

Brand Strategy | Market Research | Integrated Marketing

I found Gale Executive Recruiting's personal branding process to be very different from other recruiters I've worked with. They spent time with me to understand my strengths and weaknesses and how best to position me for a job I was interested in. The process wasn't always easy, but well worth the time and effort.

Scott Blair

Senior Account Supervisor at Rauxa

Bob is a career coach unlike any other. Working with Bob provides the opportunity for a long-term professional relationship. Much more than an expert recruiter, he remains an invaluable resource throughout your career. His knowledge of the business is so extensive that, years after I initially worked with him, I still continue to turn to him first when I need advice. He is always willing to help, and truly cares about his clients. I trust and respect Bob immensely.

Peter Brodnitz

Vice President Brand Marketing at CST Brands, Inc.

What sets Bob apart from many in the search industry is his true desire to find right-fitting career moves for his candidates. This starts with a solid understanding of each candidate's talents, ambitions and goals then progresses to career coaching. When I returned from working overseas, Bob was an important advisor to help guide me to companies/jobs that were not only good short-term but important towards building an exceptional career long-term.

Ralph Pici Jr

Senior Level Brand Marketing Digital, E-Commerce, Social & Mobile Leader

There are thousands of recruiters, career coaches and marketing gurus in our industry, but rarely if ever do you find one that masters all three areas effortlessly. That is until you meet and work with Bob. Bob provides great career advice, but he also provides life advice and helps you think about your career more so than the job or assignment that he is recruiting for at that moment. He is well respected throughout the industry by candidates and clients alike. His wisdom is full of insight, clarity and humor and his affable style is infectious. I strongly recommend Bob to those that are willing to be introspective about their career and where it's going, and be ready to accept an unbiased, truthful view - and if you're willing to take this step, the results will dramatically improve a candidate's career path and their future.
