Chief Financial Officer – Privately Held Dairy Producer in California

"Rachel was very passionate about seeing that my needs were met along the way and pushed hard for success for me. I strongly recommend her for any other candidate looking to grow their career in the near future!"

"I've worked with other recruiters in the past who only seem interested in presenting as many candidates as possible in the hope that something sticks. Rachel spent a lot of time discussing our profile, culture, objectives and specific job descriptions and then recruited accordingly."

"Great recruiting process. Rachel and her team were very thorough and had excellent communication throughout the process. I am loving the new role they helped me land. I would highly recommend them to anybody that's looking or hiring!"

"I felt well represented and both parties needs were met. I am very happy with my decision and Anna’s care for my needs. I would recommend her to anyone looking to be well informed and represented in their job search."

"3P Partners brings competence to the table with a mix of a very positive attitude and an extremely friendly approach. I had the chance to work with Rachel. She is very organized and has an extremely efficient follow-up system. From last-minute tips to good-luck emails, she remained active during the entire recruitment process. I will recommend her for any future collaboration."

"I have interviewed and hired hundreds of people over the last twenty years and obviously worked with many recruitment companies. However there have only been a handful of occasions that I came across very bright individuals and rather brilliant firms. "

"From the first day that 3P Partners contacted me to secure my next job, Anna Nicholson and Madeleine Quinn have been nothing but professional. The amount of time they have spent to get to know me and my aspirations, their absolute transparency of the clients' requirements and by being simply good humans, is beyond admirable."

"Both Rachel and Madeleine Quinn at 3P Partners are top Executive Recruiters whom understand the dynamics and operations of how to staff top notch talent and high caliber personnel within an organization. Their knowledge base and skill competency in preparing candidates for interviews is well coached for success. Remarkable and outstanding."
