Client Partner Testimonial

sws“I have had the pleasure of working with Traci both at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and more recently at The Family Coppola.  In both cases I found her to be a consummate business partner who is particularly skilled at ascertaining the nuances of company culture and the intricacies of the roles she is recruiting for. Being a gifted communicator and interviewer, Traci works hard to insure that her candidates are well prepared for their interviews and are a good “fit” for the company. Put simply, I have found Traci to be both highly professional and a great joy to work with, and I highly recommend her for your next recruiting effort.” Steve Spadarotto, CEO – Far Niente Wine Estates

Her experience and knowledge in the accounting and financial job sector brings results when finding top notch talent that will fit your needs.

“How does one even begin to describe the joy that is working with Traci? I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Traci in 2004 while recruiting for Restoration Hardware. Traci is an incredible business partner who really knows her stuff. Beyond being knowledgeable of accounting and finance, she goes to great efforts to understand company culture and team dynamics in order to place candidates that will be successful in their roles. Traci has incredible follow through and will never give up on even the toughest of searches. After leaving RH and joining companies outside of Traci’s market, she continues to be an incredible resource. And on top of all that, she will make you laugh until you fall out of your chair. And we all need that once in a while. “
