Testimonials

  • Madison Dearborn Partners has executed a number of corporate carve-outs over the last several years. Through these investments, we have worked with all of the large search firms and many boutiques as well. Mike Doonan and his team at SPMB are at the front of that pack and have helped us successfully hire talented CIOs through highly organized processes. While we value Mike’s ability to source candidates, we place an even higher value on his judgment and advice regarding selecting the right candidate. We look forward to engaging him to help us with other companies in our portfolio.

    Director
  • Our people are our most valuable asset at T-Mobile and we set a very high bar for finding the right talent. Becky and the team at SPMB are the very definition of going the extra mile, deeply understanding our needs, available 24/7 and most importantly, very successful at sourcing game changing talent for my organization. On top of all of that they are great fun to work with!

    SVP Digital
  • I worked with Eamonn Tucker on a successful search for the VP of Corporate Marketing at Nutanix. He has a deep understanding of marketing talent and a rich network of contacts from which to build the candidate pipeline. Eamonn also ran an efficient process that concluded ahead of schedule. He will be one of the first calls I make to any executive recruiter.

    CMO
  • The team at SPMB nailed my CMO search. The execution was outstanding. They jumped on it quickly, the process was tight, we had a number of very strong candidates, and are really pleased with the final result. This was one of the best run projects I've been a part of...these guys are a strategic weapon when it comes to building out executive leadership teams.

    CEO
  • This is world-class work and raises the bar amongst all search firms. Thank you for the incredible effort!

    Andy Chen
    Partner
  • SPMB found us a financial leader that combines the best in cutting-edge analytical ability with deep financial acumen. That is a truly rare find, and increasingly critical in an environment that draws on financial data and business intelligence from across our enterprise and the industry.

    Mike Evans
    CFO
  • Illumio believes strongly in our partnerships being based on transparent, honest and close communications, whether with customers or vendors. After working with SPMB multiple times I strongly believe they operate under the exact same model. The team at SPMB took time to get to know me, our team, our story, our values and what we were looking for in each search we worked on together. They listen, consult and advise and as a result the quality of the candidates was exceptional and each search resulted in a very successful team member joining Illumio. I have engaged them multiple times already and would do it again if the need arises.

    Andrew Rubin
    CEO
  • It’s been great to work with SPMB as both a client and candidate. They run a well structured and dynamic process always delivering high quality candidates. I've always been impressed with the way they put themselves in the shoes of their client and compel the best candidates to the table. I look forward to continued success together.

    Kevin Biggs
    SVP WW Sales
  • I have worked with most of the executive search firms who work in technology. SPMB is unique because they find the highest quality candidates that are never interested in new opportunities and the candidates enter the process qualified and open to talking about making a move. They are so good at telling and living the story that I often forget they aren't on our executive team. We have built a world class executive team working with Kevin and the support staff at SMPB.

    Jeff Hudson

  • I used SPMB on a very important, very senior executive search. They're thoughtful, passionate, work 24/7, and are fun to work with. Can't recommend them more highly.

  • Our work at the Pittsburgh Steelers with Becky, Lindsay and the SPMB team was strategic, kept pace, and stayed on the schedule that was agreed upon. The SPMB team performed strong up front diligence allowing all parties to be in alignment on culture and skill set which produced focused results. A true collaboration!

    Susan McGalla
    Vice President of Business Strategy & Creative Development
  • We worked with Becky and her team on a very important search for a senior technology leader. I was incredibly impressed by the network they have and the thoroughness and preparation they exhibited throughout the process. I look forward to working with the SPMB team again!
