I can’t say enough about the work Patino Associates has delivered! We engaged them just under eight months ago, and they’ve already placed three people at our company. Given our process and high bar for talent, this is unprecedented. We worked most closely with Jessica Bayer, and she is a phenomenal partner and advisor. She listened to what we wanted and quickly learned our culture and company. Jessica is resilient, tenacious, agile and moves quickly, and one of the best retained executive recruiters I have ever worked with. Hire them today!
Partnering with Patino Associates has been a positive and rewarding experiencing for sourcing the best talent to meet our strategic objectives. Michael and Jessica have been instrumental on providing us expert guidance on the market as well as leveraging their tremendous network of top talent.
I really enjoyed the process of working with Mike and his team from Patino Associates to help source some incredible senior communications talent. Mike took the time to really get to know the intricacies of our search needs and was incredibly supportive and strategic through the process from sourcing to closing. His team’s network of top flight talent made a huge difference in ensuring that we landed the type of talented leader that would match our needs and help push our communications strategy to a new level. I would highly recommend him and his team to future potential clients.
The Patino team blew us away. The care and attention to detail throughout the process was obvious and the caliber of candidates was unparalleled. We experienced nothing short of platinum client service and found and hired our top candidate quickly and effectively. They were more than just recruiters, they were advisors and partners. This is the team you hire when the stakes are high and you need results.
It’s a word more important than ever these days. It is our core competency that is foundational in our work. It is also the core of the contract that we make with our clients, our candidates and the community of communicators at large.
We thoughtfully assess candidates and we share our candid insights with both clients and candidates. We provide sincere and transparent feedback because we are invested in our clients’ success and our candidates’ careers.
Patino Associates and its’ partners are committed to “making communications better.” In a time where world-class strategic communications is essential, we are devoted to building better capabilities, better teams, and most importantly, better leaders.
Our principals possess a combined 35 years of experience recruiting communications executives. We know the landscape of talent and have built deeper relationships with outstanding executives by listening, not just selling an opportunity.
As a result, Patino Associates successfully completed 95% of our searches last year and have a 93% success rate over the last five years, compared with ESIX’s reported industry average of ~60%.
