See what people are saying about Vertical Elevation.

I had the opportunity to work with Carol on two important engagements for my business.  Neither were cookie-cutter searches. Carol was able to go deep, and understood the nuances of our requirements and our culture, as deep insure-tech specialists leading a vertical market niche.  She was also a strong advocate for our proposition, leading to successful outcomes.  It was a pleasure working with her!”

I have personally worked with Carol for over two decades. As a result of her many successful years in the business of people, Carol’s abilities in skills development, talent identification, recruiting and business planning are unparalleled. Carol’s insights have helped me build highly effective organizations.

Craig Harper

Former CEO & Board Member, Cherwell Software

It has always been a challenge finding real estate brokers who are dedicated to our mission, to our clients, and not their own. What Vertical Elevation has done is put a process in place where I can identify, benchmark, qualify, and hire my talent so that I know I’m bringing the best people in house and I can contribute to their success when they are on board.

Mark Trenka

Broker/Owner, Century 21 Trenka Real Estate

I have been in the software industry in various sales roles for over 30 years. Through that time I have had countless interviews. It wasn’t until Carol took the time with me and went through my entire background that I realized what my priorities were. Carol has always been an asset to me while making career decisions, but the Vantage Point Process really got me to think about what my next career move should be.

Robert Swymer

Area VP of Sales, Field Southeast, Splunk

I engaged Carol to assist me in career planning. She has a very structured approach/process that ultimately results in determining, for her client, the right position, the right industry, and the right company that would provide the most challenge, personal fulfillment and success. Carol is extremely capable, assertive, punctual and disciplined. I would highly recommend her to assist those in their career planning. I wish I had hired her much earlier in my career.

Mike Shingler

Director of Finance, AirSign, Inc.

Carol has a unique talent in helping to bring out the best in people she works with. She takes the time to understand candidates’ strengths and how to prepare them to be effective in job interview situations. Her experience is invaluable to candidates. I would recommend her highly.

John Calamia

President, Oak Point Consulting

Carol’s capability & network to source top-end, quota achieving sales execs from either enterprise software development companies or consulting services teams is her value to any sales group. She recruited for our selective sales team with Saba Software. As one of our best recruiters, her hires were ‘anchor’ sales execs. She can hit the ground running and not miss a beat.

Rebecca Munguia

Founder, Amaven, Inc.

I highly recommend Vertical Elevation to anyone who is serious about discovering and making the right career choice and company fit. They are extremely thorough, and I was amazed at the questions Carol asked and how deeply she went into my background. I have worked with recruiters in the past and felt like I was going through a fast food restaurant but with Vertical Elevation it was just the opposite. They took the time to not only understand my background but also offer advice and feedback in re-working my resume to give the best possible image. I think for anyone that wants to work with a truly professional company, Vertical Elevation is the obvious choice.
