“Krista and the folks at The Pompeo Group were a real life-saver! We had unsuccessfully been running our own search for six months before reaching out Pompeo and were starting to get desperate. Krista was able to quickly surface high caliber candidates and made the interview logistics seamless. She was highly engaged and communicative throughout the process and was instrumental in helping us hire a great candidate within three weeks of starting the search. We’d absolutely use the folks at The Pompeo Group again.”
