Gary Sawin

Director of Human Resources, Carleton-Willard Village, Bedford, MA

"We had the pleasure of working with ZurickDavis’ Jeff [Zegas] and Ellen [Mahoney] on an important search here at Carleton-Willard Village. Our CEO Barbara Doyle and I found them to be very professional, timely and confidential. They presented several strong candidates in a short timeframe, one of whom we hired. We are very pleased with who we hired, and would absolutely use ZurickDavis again."

Andrew Gerber

CEO, Silver Hill Hospital, New Canaan, CT

“It is really incredible how you were “in it” with us and stuck with our ups and downs even in the dark days when we didn’t know if we would find the right person! It does not surprise me that you get the highest reviews of any search firm I have ever heard of. You’re a pure pleasure to work with and set a standard of customer service not just for search firms, but for any company at all!”

Danny Rosett

Board Member and Chair of the CEO Search Committee, Los Angeles Jewish Home

"At Los Angeles Jewish Home, we recently completed our search to replace our long time CEO, who had enjoyed an amazing 24-year tenure at the helm. The circumstances called for a very inclusive and comprehensive search process, and we were very fortunate to have ZurickDavis guide the way. Jeff Zegas and his team worked extensively with the Committee and brought an impressive group of final candidates for our consideration. Jeff was also instrumental in the negotiation process and provided very sound advice throughout. We couldn't have chosen a better partner for this important assignment."

Rob Gibson

Search Committee Chair, Community Health Centers of Burlington VT

"Little did we know the when we engaged ZurickDavis for the CEO search at the Community Health Centers of Burlington the journey that lay ahead of us, but we had the right partners to lead us; we hired a CEO during the Coronavirus pandemic! Shortly after beginning the search, ZDinterim placed a highly competent Interim CEO with us and turned their attention to the permanent search. ZurickDavis has a very effective process that they've honed through many engagements. Lida's insight into the human psyche and Jeff's counsel and guidance led us to a great candidate."

Grace Napolitan and Amy Polmon

Vice President, Administration and Director, Human Resources and Organizational Services at Connecticut Hospital Association, Wallingford, CT

"We worked with ZurickDavis to find a Senior Director of our ChimeData division, a position that required vast technical experience, a unique skill set, and strong leadership skills.  It was a very difficult position to fill, and we experienced some roadblocks along the way – but Jeff and his staff were focused, resilient, and tenacious. They listened to our feedback, adapted as needed, and capitalized on their knowledge of the market, great research team, and broad network. They stayed the course, and helped us find a candidate who engaged quickly in our culture. We appreciated their efforts AND results!"
