Ron Watroba of Reach Management and I enjoy a professional relationship that dates back to the time he approached me to fill a Director level position with his client Quantm, now Trimble Navigation. Following our initial discussion I was immediately impressed by Ron's professionalism and the level of client related detail he was able to offer. I must say his obvious passion certainly contributed to us enjoying several conversations, before I committed to the selection process.
Being a highly technical and specialized field, I found that Ron was able to readily and purposefully respond to my most detailed of questions and I was later to learn that he spent considerable time investigating and getting to understand Quantm's business model, before commencing with his own search. Consequently, our dialogue proved to be both smooth and constructive.
Several times during the selection process it appeared that the client was stalling on the appointment. When questioned, Ron was able to put my mind at ease by being able to bring considerable insight to the discussion table. His follow up was always timely and I was kept reliably informed with updates and the prevailing status.
My tenure with Quantm/Trimble approached 15 years and I remain thankful for the day that Ron approached me to consider that specific career change. If the reader is seeking the consummate professional Headhunter, Ron Watroba of Reach Management is a class above.
