What People are Saying

“I have never enjoyed working with a consultant more than Bob Benson. His insights, instincts and wealth of knowledge about our industry are unsurpassed by anyone I have worked with in over 30 years. Bob was invaluable in leading us through a major national and international global strategy and repositioning project, playing a pivotal role in guiding our firm through rapid revenue growth and geographical expansion. It has been hugely successful and we could not have done it without him. His knowledge, contacts, and grasp of the major business issues were keys to our success.”
Judith von Seldeneck, Chairman and CEO, Diversified Search

“Bob is one of the most knowledgeable and sensible students of the executive search profession of anyone I know. He made a huge contribution to building our firm, not only in the U.S., but also in Brussels and Germany, where he led practices during formative stages in their development. He was highly effective as a member of our Board of Directors as well. Bob establishes an extraordinary trust level because he is adept at balancing people leadership in a professional services organization while simultaneously understanding and taking into account the client’s perspective.”
Dayton Ogden, Managing Director, CEO Succession Practice, and former Chairman and CEO, Spencer Stuart

“Bob Benson is a brilliant strategist, tactician and trusted advisor who has helped refine our unique positioning in the marketplace. Operationally, his encyclopedic knowledge of what does and does not work in search has simplified decision-making and next steps. As a classic entrepreneur, I came to our first meeting brimming with ideas. There is a sorting out that happens when you talk to Bob. He has helped eliminate the noise to get to the heart of our core differentiation in the marketplace. The insight is priceless.”

"I have worked with Bob for a number of years and have always been impressed with his ability to work comfortably in cross-border situations. His cultural sensitivity, coupled with his understanding of specialty practices, served him well when he was working in Europe. He was integral in building several local practices into robust, profitable and integrated international businesses."
Manolo Marquez, Chairman and CEO, Hudson Highland Group

“I’ve known Bob Benson since we were management colleagues at one of the ‘big firms.’ He is a professional of utmost integrity and someone who has the soundest judgment I know regarding what it takes for a firm to thrive in the Executive Search profession. He has been a counselor to me with respect to my own firm and, most recently, in the combination of my firm with another. I look forward to continuing to get Bob’s ideas and solutions!”
