What Our Candidates & Clients Are Saying

“A few months ago, I knew I was underpaid and like a lot of people, I requested a fair market salary analysis from my employer. They came back with their analysis of a “fair market” rate, but it wasn’t at the level I was expecting. I really love my job and my company, but their offer was still below market, so I sent them your Compensation Guide. This was the catalyst to negotiate for a higher salary and bonus. After several additional conversations, we settled on a 30%+ raise in salary and a much stronger bonus as well. I am so grateful that my company was willing to engage in this conversation. Thank you for all the work you do to bring this salary awareness to the table for the business community, and for making them easily accessible. I bet you and your team didn’t even realize how much you impacted my life, and I truly appreciate what you did for me!”
– Head of Marketing, Southern California

“We used TurningPoint Executive Search to place our COO. Ken worked closely with us throughout the process and made sure he knew exactly what we were looking for. He found us the perfect candidate. The communication, transparency, and professionalism from Ken were second to none. TurningPoint will be the first place we go next time we need a C-suite executive for our company.”
– Nick Telford, President, Sports For Learning

“Working with the team at TurningPoint was effortless. They provided ongoing updates, and really did an incredible job keeping me informed about the process. Ken was a pleasure to work with as well and enjoyed getting to spend time with him. I got the job I wanted and was provided step-by-step support along the entire journey. I would highly recommend these folks as they are top-notch pros that clearly know what they are doing. Thank you TurningPoint!”
– David Patrick, Vice President, Operations

“Our new President has been an amazing hire, I am so grateful to TurningPoint for finding him. He is an incredible boss He is honest, transparent, and positive, giving me both affirmations and constructive feedback. He is really making a difference here at ESET. We are working really hard but it feels good to be working towards a common goal. He literally brought my passion back to my role.”
– Celeste Blodgett, VP, Human Resources, ESET

“We found Ken Schmitt and the TurningPoint team to be highly professional, very responsive and cooperative, intuitive and pro-active during our search to find us a Senior VP for Sales. It began with my first call to TurningPoint and was the same throughout the engagement. Given the nature of our rather unique position in a rather unique industry, TurningPoint’s ability to find people who could sell into our market, with previous experience doing so, was rather remarkable.  Further, as part of each interview, we asked the candidate to describe their personal experience with TurningPoint, and in each instance, the reaction was instant and almost eerily consistent. The term “highly professional” was one that was repeated by all of them. Several said that it was the best experience with an executive search firm they had ever had, and even though they were not looking to move from their current position, the TurningPoint recruiters made our position so interesting to them that they had to at least look at it. We were very pleased with our final selection of what we believe may prove to be a “game changing” hire for us. And you can be assured that should we again need the services of a search firm, there is only one call we need to make, and that is to TurningPoint.”
– Bob Alvarado, CEO and Mark Wapnick, President at CourtCall LLC

“I recently had the pleasure of working with TurningPoint for the position of Vice President of Marketing. Throughout the process, the recruiter was meticulous in vetting my skills and background in order to prepare me for meetings with the executive staff. Their ability to identify and hone in on key attributes that would benefit the client enabled me to fine-tune my presentation and ultimately land my new position. They are consummate professionals and I would highly recommend TurningPoint Executive Search to others interested in new marketing roles and opportunities.” 
– Tricia Rodewald, Vice President of Marketing, Regenesis 

“We made the decision to hire a Chief Sales Officer and were referred to TurningPoint. The team came out to understand our need, asked a lot of good questions, and outlined a very thorough process they would follow to find us a strong pool of candidates. During the process TurningPoint made sure to communicate with me often, updating me on their progress. Their thoroughness ensured that we were talking with quality candidates and in the end, they helped us negotiate within our salary range and did an incredibly comprehensive reference check prior to us making an offer. If we had a similar opening again we would certainly be talking with TurningPoint. I definitely recommend them for helping fill senior level sales positions.”
– Jamie Ogle, President & CEO, Lloyd Pest Control

“I had the privilege of working with the TurningPoint team when looking for a Recruiting Management position located in the greater San Diego area. What I loved the most about working with the team is their ability to listen and provide results based on your needs and requirements. Coupled with the fact, the team is timely, professional, relatable, and they don’t approach their line of work with an “agenda” or “internal motives” – They just cares about what they do and are incredibly talented at it. I’ve been in the recruitment industry for over 12 years and I can honestly say – TurningPoint may be one of the most impressive PD/Recruiters I’ve worked with and I highly encourage anyone interested in finding that next chapter in their lives – to connect and work with them.
– Luigi Prainito, Head of Recruiting, Delivery, & Strategic Partnerships, HNM Systems

“The team at TurningPoint was incredibly professional, detailed, responsive, and communicative throughout the recruitment process. This was by far the best experience I’ve had working with an external recruitment service and would be more than happy to do so again.”

“Raquel Gallant and the team at TurningPoint Executive Search were such a pleasure to work with.

“I am looking to expand my operation now and Ken provided great insight on which specific roles to hire for and what exactly those roles should do in a business. I was completely in the dark as far as how much to pay a high-level executive and he made it clear and simple for me to understand.”
Ian Almasi, CEO, Immigration Finder

“I had the pleasure of working with Raquel from TurningPoint on a recent process where I was one of the candidates. It was one of my best experiences with a recruiter so far. They are very professional and thorough and actively managed and moderated the process with the company. I really appreciated TurningPoint’s flexibility and support during the interview loop since I had another conversation going on and needed to get to a decision more quickly than usual. Raquel kept me in the loop all the time, and I felt very well taken care of throughout the process. I can highly recommend this firm for both candidates and companies that are looking to hire executives.”
Micha Martin Lauterjung, Vice President of Sales Operations and Fulfillment at Verimatrix

“My experience with TurningPoint Executive search was by far the best experience anyone could ask for. It was the white-glove treatment from my initial outreach to Ken followed by the hard work from the recruiting team. It was just over one week from my initial reach out to my offer letter. That is all due to the urgency TurningPoint placed on finding the right fit for me and the client. In this hard-to-find job market I wouldn’t put my trust in anyone else other than Ken and the team at TurningPoint. Thank you so much for finding me my last job.”
– Patrick Dickey, VP of Sales, California Industrial Fabrics

“We partnered with Ken and his team at TurningPoint to identify and hire a new Account Executive. As a start-up business, our resources are a bit more limited. However, their TalentAccess solution provided us with exactly what we needed – a pre-screened, targeted list of sales candidates who were qualified and interested in our position. I am pleased to say we made our hire, thanks to the team at TurningPoint Executive Search” 
– Julie Bemis, HR Manager and Joshua Bernheim, COO, KickX Golf 

“Although it was a bit of a difficult time conducting my job search, I always knew the TurningPoint team was in my corner and ready to help.  Their positive, honest, open approach allowed me to grow and find myself as well as a job in the last few months. They helped me to truly understand it is all about networking and making connections. As a result, I recently found a job as the Director of Marketing Communications through a colleague who recommended me.” 
– Kim Tucker, Director of Marketing Communications

I have consistently recommended their services to both groups and can say it was an absolute pleasure to work with their entire team.
– Shelley Callahan, VP of Marketing at Advanced Particle Therapy, LLC

“I enjoyed a delightful experience in working with TurningPoint and their extremely capable recruiting and placement expert, Raquel. We all receive blanket, generic outreach from busy recruiters; Raquel’s outreach was pointed and educational. She, and the TP team, clearly do their research, understand how to align needs with candidate capability, and execute ideal-fit placements. Thank you. I am excited about my next career chapter, and I wouldn’t have had this opportunity without Raquel, Ken and the entire TurningPoint team.
– Tim Stevens, Director of Sales, Technossus

“After relocating my family to a new state, for a role that I’m extremely excited about and working for a company that has unlimited upside, I’ve proactively reached out to our users and they LOVE the product and have plans for our company to be a critical piece to their technology stack for years to come.

I think everything happens for a reason. This move has been stressful, but recently we’ve had a lot of things fall into place for us and I honestly couldn’t be more excited. I know this move is right for my little family and we are all ready for this new adventure.”
