Keystone Search Testimonials


Being a 100% ESOP company, cultural fit is really important, especially for leadership roles.  KeyStone Search did an excellent job of understanding our culture and identifying candidates who fit. The COO we ultimately hired certainly has a great skillset, but also fits our culture extremely well.

Jim Smiley - CEO and President, HM Cragg

Mike and his team provided exactly what we needed in our search for a new Integrator – a deep understanding of our needs, years of real-world experience filling critical leadership team seats with talented people that fit a company’s unique culture, and a proven process. His work ethic and dedication to producing a great outcome for us and for the candidates was clear throughout, and we are delighted with the results.

Mike Paton - Former Visionary, EOS Worldwide

I worked directly with KeyStone Search through a CEO transition process (as an ESOP Board Director).  Not only did KeyStone help us hire a strong CEO for the company’s future, but also did an outstanding job of guiding the Board and Employee Owners through the challenges of hiring an outside CEO for the first time in its 25-year history.

Steve Doerfler - President and CEO, Metalcraft

I’ve worked with KeyStone both as a candidate and to hire a critical VP role for our team. What impresses me most is KeyStone’s ability to gain a deep understanding of both our business and our culture, and apply those to finding the best fit. If you need to add a key member to your leadership team, there is no better than KeyStone Search.

Ben Granley - President, Werner Electric

We retained KeyStone to lead the recruitment of our Integrator for EOS Worldwide. I was impressed with their proven process which incorporated the key tenets of our V/TO, as well as the characteristics of our Visionary. Their knowledge and commitment to finding us the right fit was obvious as they guided us from start to finish. With KeyStone’s help we were able to hire an outstanding Integrator.

Gino Wickman - Founder, EOS® Worldwide

Thanks for your help with this very important decision. The process took so much of the concern and uncertainty out of the equation. I wish we would have known about you guys years ago!

Patti Sebastian - Sebastian Construction Group

I wanted to write and say THANK YOU for your evaluation and help with Jeff. He has been here 1 month and things are going great! Definitely that integrator that had been missing from our company and what I’d always read about in EOS books, although never fully believed until now.
