“Working with Westby Associates, Inc. (WAI) to recruit a senior level executive made my job considerably easier as the position of Development Director was a new position for us.  Westby Associates, Inc. worked professionally, diligently, and effectively to make the project go smoothly from beginning to end.  Having consultants such as WAI who specialize in the non-profit industry was extremely valuable to us.  WAI took the time to understand our specific needs and then developed an innovative and highly successful recruitment process during the COVID pandemic.  All the meetings with us and potential candidates were conducted virtually.  Each of the top 3 candidates presented to us were of the highest caliber.  As a result, we were able to hire an exceptional candidate.  I would highly recommend Westby Associates, Inc. for their talent acquisition services as they clearly understood my company’s needs and core business.  WAI was definitely on our team throughout the entire process.”
