“My off-the-cuff comments about Ken (Leiner) and Stuart (Neuwelt)- it’s been a delight to work with KLA… What I like about Ken and Stuart is they do an excellent job screening. Most of these executive search firms just throw anybody and everybody at you. KLA really does a good job of matching up what my requirements are… so the candidates I do see, I’d say that at least 90% of them are a pretty good match. You can even quote me on that if you want to.”

John Albanese, Regional Sales Manager

“I approached KLA after taking several years out of the workforce to raise my children. With that break and the current economic climate, I knew it would be a challenge. Ken was very candid with me. He took my resume, extracted more measurable ways to show my contributions, and produced a far better version. He was not afraid to prepare and coach me for tough interview questions, advising me to really “know my product”–meaning my value and preparedness with details about each of my previous roles and contributions to them. Once Ken and Stuart identified a potential fit, I worked directly with Stuart, who was easy to work with and kept our pace moving along. Inquisitive throughout, he made sure I was the right type of candidate for the role and that the position would be a smart move for me. He was energetic and persistent about making sure he supplied the company with their requested information throughout the process. He was equally persistent in tracking down answers for me as I worked through qualifying and interviewing. Between Stuart’s dedication and Ken’s candid guidance, I was well equipped and pretty confident heading into the interviews. Since my job preference was not as prevalent in the technology space as many other roles, industry peers suggested my search would take six to ten months. Instead, KLA was able to get me lined up with a superb role, strong leadership, and a healthy, growing company in just ten weeks. It’s a great fit and I’m surrounded by a team of people who really understand customer advocacy. I’m happy to have had such a nice launching point with KLA. Overall, it was a really good experience.”

“I’d like to thank you and your staff for the attention offered to me during my career search… attentive to my needs and very professional in your dealings with me. I would especially like to recognize Stuart for being my sponsor, coach and mentor within your organization. Stuart was extremely helpful, professional, attentive and a great sounding board for the various opportunities that were presented to me. We spoke often and at all times of the day and week and Stuart always maintained his great attitude. It was a real pleasure working closely with Stuart… With the people you have within your organization, there’s no question as to why KLA is the leader in the industry.”

“I want to express my sincerest thanks and appreciation for all that you and your company have done for me. I love my new job, it is a perfect match for me. Down the winding road, I worked with many of your employees. Frank, Dan, Amy each of them worked diligently and very professionally with me… Most of all, I want to express my appreciation to Stuart. Stuart hung with me from start to finish, and he was always available, supportive, professional, and dependable and too many other good adjectives and adverbs to list. I wish you and your team the best of luck and fortune in the future. If you ever need a reference – pick me.”
