The search was a roaring success. Acertitude did a great job vetting and presenting us only with qualified candidates. They give me senior-level involvement end-to-end in the search, supporting us every step of the way. With the big firms, I’d always be handed off to a junior up-and-comer. Our performance bar is ‘stellar’ and that’s what Rick and Acertitude deliver.Ed Meyercord, Chief Executive Officer, Extreme Networks
