Client Testimonials and Success Stories

“HansenBack was extraordinarily helpful to us in our CEO search, identifying and helping us land a highly qualified candidate who was not on the radar of the search committee. I could not be happier with the level of professionalism and insight they brought to the CEO search and the support they provided the search committee!”

Dan Roach • Board of Directors

“Brian Back quickly became my number one choice for Executive Recruitment after the first time working with him.  His focus on story is what leads to a successful match.  Brian is authentically curious when asking questions of both the organization and the candidate – ensuring that he truly understands the “DNA” of each.  He isn’t interested in simply filling a role, he is motivated by valuing what really matters to the company and honoring what makes a person thrive.  These attributes make Brian great at what he does!”

Angie Robinson • VP Human Resources

“Harry Urschel is a true professional, with integrity & ethics as his foundation. Harry is well networked, knows this market very well and is well respected.”

Ron Conroy, CEO

“We are interviewing high level people and everyone that has commented, said that Brian Back is like no other recruiter they have worked with and that his approach is the way it ought to be done. Seriously dude you are killing this recruitment business.”

Roy Snell • CEO

“The value that Harry brings to his clients and candidates is his ability to make the right fit for both. Harry doesn’t just take orders and fill positions. He understands his specialty in recruiting and takes the necessary time to understand his client’s needs and the candidate’s abilities and objectives. This is why he has repeat business and referrals. He will provide you with the resource that you need, every time.”

Mark Buchstaber, Director

“A few years ago Goodin Company hired a new CFO/Treasurer. HansenBack took the time to interview our team to determine the best fit personality to work with our Company. They provided us with excellent candidates. The final choice was very difficult because they all were very good and would have fit in. After 3+ years we and our CFO are very happy with our choice and I know will be for many years to come.”

Greg Skagerberg, CEO/Chairman

“Brian Back is without a doubt the best recruiter I have ever worked with. He was extremely thorough and patient throughout the entire process, always keeping me informed. From the initial screening process all the way up to the hire, Brian was meticulous in his preparations, always focused on finding the best fit for the organization, while taking the time to explore my strengths and weaknesses as a candidate. He then did a remarkable job of preparing me for my interviews with each member of the search committee, resulting in efficient yet comfortable conversations. I highly recommend Brian to any employer embarking on a search.”

Gerry Zack, Incoming CEO

“Harry has filled multiple roles on my team over the years and it’s always been a great experience. He makes sure to fully understand my objectives, the organization, and the candidates he brings to the table. He has enabled me to make some great hires and I recommend him highly.”

Joe Jansen, Director

“Integrity, leadership, and industry expertise are the hallmarks of any successful professional. Having them all in one package, as Harry does, is exceptional.”

Kevin Vick, COO

“I first met Brian four years ago as a candidate and subsequently worked with him as a client. Both experiences were extremely positive. As a candidate, I found him to be extremely knowledgeable of the client and its culture, exceptionally responsive and insightful. As a client, I found Brian to be very thorough, timely and wholly committed to finding the best fit for our positions.”
