"People are the key to any business. Recruiting the 'right' individual is essential and employers should take as much care in retaining a recruiter as hiring a new employee. Minimizing the risks in recruitment is as important as hiring the best possible candidate. This can only be achieved by working with a recruiter who has direct experience of the industry, an intimate understanding of what it takes to run a successful business, and has the motivation and contacts to get the job done. John McAughtry fits the bill perfectly."
(To date Silverado Ventures has placed the President, Content Division, the Vice President of North American Sales and the Director of CDN Sales at CacheLogic.)
"John is unique amongst his peers in that he has the first hand experience, having been an outstanding operational executive himself. That allows you to "speak shorthand" with him - he immediately grasps exactly what you're looking for - no time wasted. Combine that with his remarkable work ethic, tenacity and professionalism and the result is unbeatable. Plus he's a pure gentleman to boot."
(Successful placements at UDEX include the Executive Vice President of Professional Services and the Manager, North American Telesales.)
“Eagle GL worked with several recruiting firms to try to find strong and qualified staff. These firms were unsuccessful. In a very difficult environment, John McAughtry was able to quickly identify several strong and qualified candidates.”
(In February 2005, one of these candidates was appointed Director of Global Audit for EagleGL, a $2bn logistics firm based in Houston TX.)
"I have worked with John McAughtry over the past several years and have found that he consistently produces results. He is very customer oriented. I recommend John, without reservation, to companies that want to get the job completed in a professional and timely manner."
“When F-Secure wanted to hire a Director of North American sales for our San Jose, CA office, Silverado Ventures presented a number of qualified candidates to us and we soon found an highly experienced sales manager who met all our requirements. John McAughtry not only provides a very professional and responsive service, but his prior experience as a VP of Sales for several enterprise software companies means that he really understands the business and inter-personal skills that a client like F-Secure is looking for.”
(To date, 11 candidates sourced from Silverado Ventures have been hired including the Director of Sales, Director of Marketing, Financial Controller, Services Manager, Senior Project Managers, Senior Systems Architects and Senior Server Engineers.)
“John McAughtry has a proven and rare skill of truly understanding the needs of his clients, sometimes better than as expressed by them. He equally well matches the skills of his candidates so that real marriages of needs and skills are fully accomplished to the mutual benefit of all parties. There is no wasting of time for either client or candidate; positive results are forthcoming rapidly. Coupled with this is John’s high level of status communication so that no one is left guessing as to what is occurring. This is an unusual and refreshing differentiation to the normal executive search process and makes John both a singularly effective and a highly sought after resource for all concerned.”
(Hired within 30 days of commencing this retained search).
"John applies an intelligent and analytical approach to searches resulting in finely qualified and clearly defined candidate shortlists. This in turn guarantees a highly efficient recruitment process and produces the best hires with a minimum of management time overhead for myself and my colleagues."
