- J.P., Principal & Practice Leader
As a CEO, when I'm making an important hire, I need honest feedback, I need it promptly, and I need someone who actually understands how the hire impacts my company's goals. Murdoch Mason has always delivered on each of these requirements and more importantly has earned my trust time and again. The search partner both advises me and challenges me about our personnel, firm culture, and growth strategy. If we were large enough to afford him, he'd be in my C suite already. Needless to say, I highly recommend Murdoch Mason Executive Search Group.
- A.V., Chief Executive Officer
Aaron provided expert and insightful guidance during every phase of my transition from management consulting to a newly created Senior Vice President role at a recent client. I sought his advice in developing the business case for the role, defining position responsibilities and goals, interviewing with executive leadership, negotiating salary, and managing a potentially contentious transition away from my previous employer. Aaron's support directly contributed to me capturing a senior executive position with significantly higher responsibilities and compensation, while maintaining close professional relationships with all parties involved.

Aaron has been the primary source of guidance, strategy, advice, execution and networking as I looked to transition from a long career in capital markets to a new leadership role at a large international company. His expertise in handling the approach to connecting with key personnel in my network and executives in target companies has been the primary reason I got in the door at my top three firms. His strategy for developing a natural path and uncovering possibilities was an invaluable part of my search as I positioned myself for the jobs I wanted. His generous and personal guidance provided me with the confidence to go after top positions with a tactful demeanor that filled my lunch and coffee calendar for six weeks straight. I never would have launched such an effective search without consulting Aaron for approach e-mails, cover letters, my great resume and my LinkedIn profile. All received compliments from colleagues, friends and hiring managers. It was a big boost to have Aaron by my side. There is an effective way to make a change: it is all in the approach, preparation and presentation. And Aaron is the expert.

I've witnessed his creative transformation of a stagnant, tactical department to a strategic, integral (and respected) business unit. I count myself fortunate to say I'm part of Aaron's leadership tree and consider him not only a tremendous resource, but also a friend.
