What Others Have To Say
We build relationships because we deliver results.
"What impressed me with Chris is that he was able to quickly understand at a meaningful level the goals, culture, success factors and "nuances" of our organization. Because he gained early intuition about US Endoscopy in these areas, his advice and services were specific to what would work for our company and we did not have to spend much time calibrating his input with our reality. Griffon Partners had an immediate impact."
Gulam Khan - CEO and Co-Chairman, US Endoscopy
"Chris represents the best in "boutique" vendor-partners. His range of expertise includes executive talent search (top level recruiter), management/leadership development, design & development of end user program & learning tools. While Chris offers expertise in these areas, it is his passion and commitment, which sets him apart. Chris embraces client projects as if he was truly a direct member of the team. He is an "all in" player. Most recently Chris is assisting me with the development of sales materials for my sales force. I was pleased with his guidance and input on this the project. Being a sole proprietor, he is personally engaged with all aspects of the project from inception through completion. He is a team player who is singularly focused on earning the approval of his customers. I have been impressed with Chris and enjoyed working with him."
Stephen Jacobs - Vice President of Sales of Checkpoint Surgical
"I have known Chris for nearly 10 years and he has a long history with ERICO. During the time Chris has worked with us our business has grown substantially, nearly doubling, requiring our company to add to our leadership ranks. Chris has completed seven key leadership searches for our company in information technology, finance and Product Management. All candidates placed within our organizations have been productive, and all except for the most recent hires have been promoted, and none have left the organization. In my experience this success is uncommon among recruiters. In addition, I find Chris to be responsive, ethical and above all a strong identifier and evaluator of talent. I highly recommend Chris."
Michael Puhala - Vice President, Planning and Strategy of ERICO
"We are a small, fast growing organization looking for ways to accelerate the sales growth coming from our inside sales team. Chris was recommended to me by a CEO from another organization. He came in and quickly established credibility with our sales team. Chris was able to help the team focus quickly on some practical, easy to execute action items to increase the size of our pipeline and become more effective in moving deals through the pipeline. The results have been very encouraging and we will definitely be working with Chris again."
Mike Mutka - President/COO of Silverchair Learning Systems
"Chris Hock is a dynamic enterprise developer capable of developing simple actionable plans that succeed no matter how complex the business or competitive environment. He is well known and respected throughout the venture capital community having delivered valuable results time after time in a demanding environment. He is a great communicator and is able to present a clear message to people of all different backgrounds."
S. Michael Camp, PhD - Academic Director of The Ohio State University
"I met Chris when he was engaged by Multi Products to help recruit a new President. I was eventually chosen for that position, and throughout the recruitment process I had an exceptional experience working with Chris. He was an excellent coach for me through the process and helped me understand the role and what the owners of Multi we're looking for. This was critical so that I could prepare myself fully to become Multi’s candidate of choice, and decide that making Multi my choice was the best move for me and my career."
Kevin Brady - President of Multi-Products Company
"I met Chris while he was recruiting for a position with one of his clients. Having met a lot of recruiters throughout my career, I was blown away by his preparedness, his SOLID understanding of his client's needs ( specifically the job, the person, what traits are required for success, the culture within the company etc.) and his expectation of me as a candidate. Chris has since become a key part of my network and I can always count on him for his honesty, transparency and passion for helping people discover how to perform at their maximum. He has coached me as well as people who have worked for me in the past. I am honored to know Chris and I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a recruiter who "gets it."
Monica Pritchard - VP, Sales & Marketing at Quality Edge
"Chris provided both executive recruiting services and consulting services for our company. In both cases, Chris worked with us as a partner with good results. In the recruiting assignment, Chris dug deep to understand our culture and needs and then executed a thorough and expeditious search to find the right person. Chris's work as a consultant is similarly thorough and insightful. He has a broad and deep knowledge of human behavior in the marketplace."
Len Cosentino - CEO of Checkpoint Surgical
"As the CEO of BrightDoor, I was looking for someone to help lead and implement an effective inside sales process for our SaaS business. Chris Hock was introduced to us as a highly qualified expert in both sales process and tactics to improve lead conversion. Since our initial working sessions, I can say unequivocally that his ideas and guidance have been very effective at helping us reach and engage with our target clients. Chris is an honest, straight-shooter that has a way of cutting through the noise and focusing sales agents on the best way to plan their work schedule and execute your daily outreach. For BrightDoor, his guidance has us on a new path to greater sales and growth. I would strongly recommend Chris to any company that needs to implement (or improve) their sales program."
