I wanted to reach out and let you know how impressed we have been with Mary Chambers. Last year she sourced a COO for us that has been an amazing addition to our team. She also worked extremely hard to find a Marketing Director by request of our Vice President. Even though the company went a different direction, it was not due to the candidate pool Mary provided -they simply decided not to fill the role. Before that decision was made however, Mary came through with a strong selection with terrific backgrounds. When we pulled back from hiring, Mary never made us feel badly. She merely said she would be there if we needed her.

We are currently looking to hire a National Sales Director. It was a no brainer to reach out to Mary for assistance. I also had to share with her that I am leaving the company. Although I will be handing off unfinished work to colleagues, Mary worked so quickly to get multiple options to us that there will be very little left to transition. We are simply waiting for the owners to select whom they wish to interview.

Aside from the actual delivery of service, you should know that Mary has a way about her that is so customer centric. She follows up without appearing pushy and truly seeks to understand our needs. I am grateful for her and will carry her contact to future endeavors as a result. Please know that she represents Kinsa well. The company is both impressed and grateful for all that Mary has done and we thought you should know.

Thank you.

I would like to recognize the quality of service provided by Karen Engelman. She is very responsive, detail oriented and provides professional service with personal touch. My experience with Karen could not have been better. I will recommend Kinsa Group as a provider of quality candidates to others in the industry.

Karen, I’ve got to give you a lot of credit.  This is the second “major” placement you have worked for us.  The Director of Plant Operations is working out fantastically and I have every confidence that our new hire as Quality Director will as well.  Thanks for all your help, it’s always a pleasure to work with your group.


CEO – Dairy Industry – SD

I’m writing to let you know that I was blown away in my dealings with Karen, as she truly is an example for all to follow in terms of her proactive and detailed communication, as well as her ability to expedite things as I was in a tough situation with another offer on the table.


I really haven’t had a great experience in using recruiting firms as a hiring manager or as someone seeking new opportunities, but this experience is the way it should be!  


I believe what separates you from others is the personal touch, after all you reached out to me, Karen kept me apprised and worked really hard to expedite things and even called me on her day off – Karen is an example for all to follow in my opinion!


I will be sure to share my enthusiasm for Kinsa Group to my network and if I ever need to fill a role with specific professional skills, I’ll be sure to turn to Kinsa Group! Thanks again!

Kinsa Group really sets up perspective job applicants for success during the career hunting process. You should have pride that this is very unique from other recruiting companies I have worked for in the past!

Deciding whether or not to change jobs is undoubtedly one of the larger life decisions an individual can make. Having an individual there to guide and coach you through the process can be invaluable. I am genuinely grateful to have had Karen from Kinsa Group initialize, organize and ultimately help to finalize my transition to my next career opportunity. Her thoughtful and transparent approach allowed me to better navigate this naturally stressful time. 

Thanks again,

Procurement Manager, OR

Thank you again for everything!  Pete has been a great addition to our team!  As for how  Kinsa Group did, GREAT!!!  I had put a lot of trust into Kinsa Group with a quick, quick turnaround task with little more than having used Kinsa Group for a brief search last year.  The quick response I received with that made me reach out to you for our new Bakery Controller.  I was not disappointed in any aspect of the search from your great partnership and communication, to the quality and quantity of candidates.  Kinsa Group gets top ratings from me! You’ve been a pleasure to work with.

Director, Human Resources – IL

Dave Rothe is a consummate professional.

His easy, gentle manner, thoughtful skills and excellent vetting of candidates made our search easy. There were a few candidates that could have worked with the team. That said, the Vice President of Operations hired is the right choice for where our company is now and we are thrilled!

Director – Cannabis Confections – CA

I’ve worked with other recruiters before and none of them made me feel like I had a real chance at getting a better job.  Karen was able to articulate exactly what the employer was looking for and I believe that insight enabled me to get the job.  I was a little nervous going into the telephone and in-person interviews but Karen helped me prepare and my confidence improved throughout the process.  Karen connected me with a great job with a great salary!

Thanks Karen and Kinsa Group!
