Carol Cone, Managing Director, Business and Social Purpose, Edelman
TruthfullyI am not a great fan of search firms and I have worked with large and small. Ellen Weinreb absolutely changed my mind in this regard. She was a true partner from the beginning to the end of the process. She was attentive to every aspect of the work and did things that I would not have expected: offering a large, varied and fascinating slate of candidates, calls at any hour, all days of the week, working through challenges and opportunities of all kinds, and sweating the small stuff that can break the wooing process and ultimately, the hire. She brought an intimacy to the process for both sides of the search that could only come from an owner, operated, specialist firm.
I am now a total Ellen Weinreb super fan! She is extraordinary.

We had budget to hire 3 staff but were daunted by the work a search requires. We retained Weinreb Group. Ellen jumped right in and identified our 3 new staff within 2 weeks! Ellen is extremely fast and knowledgeable. We were very impressed with the number and quality of candidates presented. Hiring a specialty recruiter is well worth it.
Susan Conti, SVP, Human Resources, Vi-Jon
Wehired Sustainability Recruiting to recruit for key management positions within our organization. As a talent expert – Ellen Weinreb is a consummate professional who does her homework. I have appreciated the personal care she brings to ensuring that both the process and the outcome meet expectations. She never just walks away after completing a search – but continues to ensure that the client and candidate fit continues even after the position is filled. Sustainability Recruiting is consistent in delivering on their promises and is absolutely reliable. I have found them to provide excellent value and would highly recommend Ellen and the Sustainability Recruiting team as an excellent source for today’s top talent.

Ellenprovided Sears Holdings with valuable advice and assistance as we searched for two positions for our Global Compliance department. She has a great network of people in and out of the CSR industry.

Ellentakes a unique approach to her work as a recruiter. She is truly a broker trying to find the right fit for the employer and the potential employee based on the recognition that it is not just about getting someone in a position, but helping the organization find someone who is going to be successful in a role for the long term. She sees the world much more broadly than most and this extends to how she evaluates opportunities. Because she approaches her clients as partners rather than transactions, she is able to uncover opportunities and solutions that extend well beyond the narrow confines of a search.
