Testimonials

Rey Spadoni

CEO, Community VNA, Attleboro, MA

"Our organization is going through a number of key strategic corporate-level changes, and so finding the right leadership is an essential ingredient to our future success. We recently completed a search with ZurickDavis to fill a new senior level executive position. Jeff Zegas, Lida Junghans and Gina Mazza were sensitive to and knowledgeable about the issues we’re facing as we evolve forward and require a new voice at the senior leadership level. The ZurickDavis team was responsive, flexible, and insightful about our industry and unique needs and it was a relief to not have to educate them at project launch. Instead, we were able to advance the search in a highly efficient manner, working collaboratively and in lock step together. The ZurickDavis search team members were our partners, and I would not hesitate calling upon them again in the future or recommending them to industry colleagues."

Trish Bayless

Director, Human Resources, Eskaton Properties Inc, Carmichael, CA

"We recently engaged ZurickDavis to help us recruit an Executive Director for one of our Bay Area CCRCs. This facility was new to Eskaton, and our CEO Todd Murch and I wanted to be thorough in our selection process. We certainly came to the right firm. Not only were Jeff and Ellen wonderful to work with, we were very impressed with their search process. It included interviewing our internal stakeholders before they even started to consider candidates to ensure they had a complete picture of what we needed. We found this extra step to be invaluable not only for them in their search, but also to give a voice to and get buy-in from those interested parties. In a short time, we received several solid candidates and found our perfect candidate among them. Throughout the process, we had regular meetings with Jeff and Ellen to check in. After our candidate was hired, they did several post-hire check-ins with us as well as the new hire. We were very pleased with the process and its outcome, and would recommend ZurickDavis."

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 that 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."
