Colin proved to be a valuable source of quality placements in the Fabric Industry. I have used his services in hiring a National Sales Manager for one of our divisions. Colin had a meeting with me in which I gave him a detailed job description for this position. Within a week and a half, he forwarded resumes of three qualified Sales Managers. They all met our criteria and were a good fit for our business. I hired the best of those three candidates. I would like to thank Colin for helping us in hiring a qualified National Sales Manager.
