    I've had years of experiences with search people and after working with Robin, I'm convinced she's raised the bar. This is how executive search should be - responsive, decisive, relentless and leveraging their knowledge base to help us make a strategic leap in our technology leadership team. Working with Robin was a great experience, and it really feels like a partnership. It's been a big help to have her on our side.

    I understand now why I'm referred to Robin by many colleagues of mine. She thinks fast, moves fast, and has a deep context for our business and industry. She took on a tough assignment and over-delivered.

    Robin has helped me build out my team with some key executive hires, and has been a cultural force for getting things done. She really understands people and uses that skill to make the best fit for each role. But most importantly, Robin has helped me become a better leader. Her effects will be felt at Facebook for a long time.

    When Robin recruited me in 1997, I wasn't looking to make a change. Moving my family and leaving Wal-Mart at a time when the dot.com world was unproven, there was a lot at stake for me. Robin told me I'd kick myself if I didn't do it. Ten years later, I can't imagine having missed out on Amazon.com and this incredible experience for myself and my family.

    Shutterfly has compelling technologies and services, and our SVP Technology search led by Robin delivered a tremendous executive who has added huge value to our company.
    Jeffrey Housenbold, CEO, Shutterfly
    All search firms are not created equal is an understatement when it comes to comparing ReedShay with the rest of the pack.  In our recent CTO search, Robin was a strategic advisor as much as she was our recruiter. Her experience and insights, combined with a superb network of star candidates, delivered not only one, but two successful hires to round out our executive team. We hired a Chief Product Officer, too.
    Magid Abraham, Founder/CEO, ComScore.com
    There are lots of search firms out there who claim to over-deliver but Robin and Susan prove it again and again. Excellent follow through on tough assignments, and relentless about getting the work done quickly.
