Client Feedback

Mike has provided 20-30 other strong candidates for my group to interview and we have built a terrific staff in only 9 short months. Mike is very effective vetting candidates and only offering those who he feels will fit our culture and our specific needs. It has been great working with Mike this past year and I know he will continue to bring talent to me when our organization has a need.

Bruce Baden, CPA, Assistant Controller, LF USA, VP

It has been my pleasure to work with Mike both as a candidate and a client. He is by far the most engaged and responsive recruiter I have ever worked with and is unparalleled in the industry. He goes the extra mile to truly understand your organization and culture. He gives both candidate and client the same attention and respect. It is a privilege to recommend Mike.

Jonita Luck, VP Human Resources, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, Hilco Transport, Inc

Mike’s attention to detail and ability to make time to discuss a situation is unusual in the manufacturing industry. He answers questions or concerns before they are asked and presents options for considerations. It’s his personal drive within recruiting that is truly a positive attribute than I’ve experienced with others seeking just a placement. Mike represents both the candidate as well as the client with respect.

Chad Patterson, COO, Big Creek Foods

Mike is a great professional recruiting resource. He is highly client focused with a strong experience in networking. He is well structured and results focused. Mike is a true professional and an expert in his field. He is smart with a sense of humor and his dedication and drive are great. He is excellent with relationship handling and very easy-going. I strongly recommend Mike without hesitation.

Wayne Perrett, Chief HR, Retired

Mike has become a true business partner to my organization. Mike understands our company’s culture, the challenges and opportunities that we face, and the criticality of targeting the right individuals for the right positions at our company. His deep understanding of our company streamlines the recruiting process and ensures that we meet candidates with the right skills and organizational fit

Mike Lee, CFO, Constellation Brands

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, Mike spends considerable time understanding your company and learning about its positioning in the industry. In addition, Mike will meet your key team members and learn your company’s culture, which eventually leads to the selection of candidates with the right chemistry.

“Wow! That was a very quick decision and an even faster conversion – well done Mike”
