“Finding the top talent in our industry was a challenge for our company – until I met Paul Pompeo. Paul took the time to understand our company’s culture & DNA, and I had confidence in him and his team from day one. Paul’s determined, energetic, and thorough approach, coupled with his outstanding communication made every step of the recruitment process easy and stress-free. I would recommend The Pompeo Group for any company trying to find the ‘best of the best’ candidates in the industry.”
