“Sally recruited me into a fantastic career. She has also found excellent talent for my team, with the exact chemistry, skills and industry we required. The process is highly professional, efficient and effective. I have not found another recruitment agency that provides the personal, attention to detail and follow through of Pedley-Richard.”


Greg Fitzgerald SVP Marketing Sourcefire


“Sally Pedley takes the time to understand the needs of the business and only provides the high caliber candidates. She saves time for managers, keeps everyone informed and provides excellent customer service!”


Nancy Capezzuti Director Human Resources


“Deborah and Sally have developed a uniquely rich network of professionals, not only in the Austin area, but across the country. They create true partnerships with both their clients and their candidates, adding a level of trust that’s critical in the staffing process. I am always impressed by the caliber of talent they employ.”


Lisa Novak Director of Human Resources RenewData


“The toughest and most important decisions in organizations are often hiring decisions. We needed to add the right sales people quickly to support our sales growth. Pedley-Richard helped make those decisions easy by bringing highly targeted and qualified candidates to the table that we could not have sourced directly from the marketplace.”


Jason Howard VP of Sales Formaspace


“Sally and Deborah are appreciated for their amazing response time, sharp focus on our hiring objectives, personal service, and on-target candidates. I’ve known them both for years and am delighted with their direction to helping build world-class teams. Thanks Pedley-Richard!”


Dave Thomas VP Engineering Trustwave


“Pedley-Richard has been a great source of high caliber candidates and has provided superior customer service for Austin Ventures and our portfolio companies.”


Jeff Browning Recruiting Partner Austin Ventures


“I have worked with Pedley-Richard as an employer using their services and as a personal employment resource. They are extremely knowledgeable of the employment landscape, well connected and very, very professional. The fact that they have “weathered the storm” in the staffing industry speaks volumes about their business acumen!”


Lorene Phillips Director Human Resources – Envision Software


“We needed to staff a number of engineering positions in a fairly short amount of time so I turned to Pedley-Richard along with several other recruiting firms. Both in terms of personal attention, follow up and high quality of candidates, Pedley-Richard was by far the leader of the pack! They put in the time and effort to understand our needs up front. The combination of their industry knowledge, their recruiting approach of identifying, pre-screening and just being a part of the entire process topped off by their ability to find highly qualified candidates quickly, allowed us to hire the talent we needed at competitive fee rates. Pedley-Richard has consistently delivered the most value for our money and they will continue to be my top choice for staffing needs.”


Kathy Smith Sr. Director Human Resources – CoVi Technologies, Inc.


“We called Deb Richard when we needed to fill a critical Systems Manager position in less than 4 weeks. We knew we couldn’t possibly tap the right resources, and do all the screening and interviewing on top of our already overwhelmed responsibilities. Deb not only found just the right person, but she also did it even faster than we dreamed possible. Deb was a delightful, supportive consultant throughout the whole process.”


Sally Ward Former COO, EDS and VP of Operations – Resources for Living


“I have really enjoyed the professional relationship coupled with the going the extra mile attitude your firm has shown. You have certainly put the customer first in our case and I would highly recommend your firm.”


Mark Putney Chairman, Acting President and CEO – Nline Corporation


“Pedley-Richard has assisted me on a number of occasions with difficult searches. In my first business relationship with them, I challenged them to find resources for my company throughout the Southeastern US. Within an exceptionally brief period of time I had selected a full team of 6 HR professionals, all of whom were outstanding contributors. I have since used their considerable experience in an advisory capacity and been equally fulfilled.”


Steve Gibbs Vignette Corporation


“We have used Pedley-Richard over the last year for two important senior position searches for our organization. Lee Hartig was our assigned recruiter and did a superb job in handling our needs. They listened to what we needed, made an effort to really get to know our company, acted quickly to bring us qualified candidates and were really interested in finding the right fit for our organization. Their professional and personalized assistance gave us a way to make a smooth and easy transition with our new team members. I would have no hesitation in using their services again or recommending them to other companies.”


Arno Pitzen President, Heraeus Quartz America, LLC


“I’ve worked with Pedley-Richard for more than 13 years and have had nothing but great experiences with them. They have high integrity and have always done a very thorough job of assessing specific position and team needs, especially at the executive level . They’ve always focused on finding a superior quality fit rather than quantity. They obviously have excellent research, selection and screening processes which result in a very efficient hiring experience. They are also a real pleasure to work with.”


Rich Giandana VP Human Resources, Renew Data Corp


“Strategic, intuitive, gracious, results…these are the terms I use to describe Pedley-Richard. If you are looking for a unique and valued relationship with a recruiting firm call Pedley-Richard. Work with them once– you will work with them again… Promise! ”
