Al Roshdieh

“I challenged JDG with finding our Deputy Director for Transportation Policy, and they delivered! The JDG team was aggressive in searching out a diverse pool of candidates, with each having the perfect mix of technical expertise and organizational leadership. All along I was kept abreast of progress, and had multiple opportunities for feedback as the team exhaustively screened the candidates. The JDG team was focused on ensuring the final candidate was the right “fit” for the organization. I could not be more happy with the results of the recruitment and JDG’s end-to-end involvement.”

Mary Dowdall

President of Irving Burton Associates

“IBA had a strategic leadership need and knew we’d have to penetrate the existing Federal IT market to find the ideal candidate for our organization.  We contacted a handful of executive recruiters and JDG really stood out.  Their team of executive recruiters was professional, inquisitive, responsive, and after a short amount of time it became clear that they were very knowledgeable, respected, and well-connected in the industry.  They took the time up front to meet with our leadership team and understand our critical need and requirements.  We were supported throughout the recruitment process and their guidance was invaluable.  Ultimately, we found our Senior Vice President of Federal IT Services, and couldn’t be more pleased with the results.”

John Kennedy

International President of the Institute of Transportation Engineers

“JDG did an outstanding job helping our selection committee and Board hire a new Executive Director/Chief Executive Officer. As Search Committee Chair and a newcomer to this process, your nurturing assistance was greatly appreciated. You helped us understand every step and your advice was always right on the mark. We gave you a real challenge in identifying candidates and developing a shortlist for us and you exceeded our expectations. I believe the in-depth candidate interviews led to the correct assessment of the personality, capability and suitability of the selected individual to serve in a position that had been occupied by the same individual for 42 years. We are all very pleased with the results.”

“I previously worked with JDG on a critical and successful search for a Senior Director of Business Development in a new geographic and business area. JDG’s deep understanding of our requirement and development of an achievable search plan paid off. Each candidate I reviewed not only met our requirements, but offered key intangibles. Moreover, all of the candidates selected for interviews were all very strong choices. It was nice working with a trusted partner who valued my time. It was a privilege to work with JDG.”
