What Our Clients Are Saying
"Victory Search Group brings both a business orientation as well as an understanding and appreciation for the mission clients expect from serious candidates…We needed an Executive Director who would make sure our growth plans were appropriately budgeted, that performance was tracked, and mid-period corrections made to revenue and expense projections—while not losing focus on accomplishing the philanthropic objectives of our supporters…VSG got this, targeted and screened candidates for these skills, and cultivated the qualified prospects for our leadership role…A great outcome: we’ve already used them for another search."
"I have been impressed with VSG first as a candidate and later when I hired them to add senior leaders to my team. As a candidate, they displayed a unique level of thoroughness balanced with empathy for the candidate experience, a rare combination that gave me a favorable impression of the hiring company. As a client, VSG was highly engaged and demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of our business and culture which jumpstarted the search process. With their guidance, we hired several talented leaders that are adding value at the company today."
