"We engaged Decision Associates in our search for Executive Director of Erie Center for Arts and Technology. We could not have had a more professional search for the most critical role in our organization. Everything throughout the process lined up better than we expected. The best part of the engagement with Decision Associates was the homework they used to prepare us for this hire. Decision Associates legitimized the search and we feel this attracted the best candidates for the role."
