Sometimes in life we cross paths with individuals that stand out above others. I have been blessed to have come through the ‘professional’ path of Sandra Abbene, from day one it was very clear to me I was not just a number, another resume or someone without feelings. Sandra immediately boosted positive thinking when it comes to the “recruiting profession,” to my career’s future and Sam will continue to do so for many beyond myself.
Tom Strohmeyer, Director SQA GlobalCandidate
Sam is the consummate professional recruiter who gives 150% to her clients and candidates!
Cathryn Gabor, Business Executive, Advocate/PhilanthropistClient
Sam is one of the best recruiters I have ever worked with. She is a hard worker and trusted friend. Every time I hear from her, it is a pleasure and I take everything she says very seriously.
Scott Parkinson, Exec. Director Global Procurement, Closure SystemsClient
I’ve worked with Sam & her team now going on 10 plus years. Sam has been a great asset and excellent business partner to me and my companies. Besides being very detailed in her work, her firm goes out of their way to ensure they match the right person for the position. A potential client is well screened prior to the first interview, which makes the interview process go much smoother. I would recommend to any company that has a search requiring a senior manager or executive leader, to call on Sam and her company.
Mark Shaw, CEO, Managing Director OTTS, Inc.Client
Ms. Sam Abbene is a consummate professional that raises the bar on integrity and personal responsibility within the recruiting industry to a much higher level. I have known and worked with Sam for many years. She will likely become a close friend and trusted advisor to you, as her focus is always on doing the right thing for all parties involved in any hiring process.
