It was clear from the first time I met Ascent Select’s Managing Partner Mike Sudermann that he believes in establishing a collaborative partnership with his clients that ultimately builds into long-term relationships.

Ascent Select uses a very systematic and detailed approach to the recruiting process. Before the actual search process begins, they will meet your key team members and learn your company’s culture, which eventually leads to the selection of candidates with the right chemistry.

Once the search process is underway you’re never in the dark. Ascent believes in regular communication and great coordination throughout the entire process. During the intensive interview process and evaluation of the personality profile assessment Ascent Select spends an extraordinary amount of time and effort to ensure that the final candidates are qualified to be successful in the role.

Ascent will do whatever it takes to successfully find the best candidate for your company. They have been successful in finding my businesses top notch candidates. I highly recommend Ascent Select Strategic Search Partners
