Slone is a national search firm that, in summary, truly “gets it”. They have a deep understanding of and experience in our industry and have a vast network of truly outstanding talent in the space. I have had the pleasure of partnering with Leslie and her team on critical, senior level searches. Slone’s genuine passion, caring, and commitment to be truly a part of us, beyond a typical search firm’s surface level representation of the company, resulted in outstanding hires in unprecedented timeframes for such senior level roles.

Working with Slone Partners was a pleasure because of the high level of customer service their team modeled throughout the entire search. They quickly identified top-notch candidates and focused on whether each would be a good cultural fit for our company. With a principal/partner involved throughout the search, we always felt as if we were the only client. And, we heard from candidates for our search and others’ that their experience with Slone Partners was as positive as ours. This is critical from an employer’s standpoint.

Working with the Slone Partners team for the Laboratory Director position at Viome, Inc. was a rewarding experience. The firm’s consistent and relentless efforts helped ensure success with an extremely finite pool of qualified candidates in the US. Their professionalism, energy, pace, and flexibility was very much appreciated along the way. We were able to identify two candidates that would have made excellent additions to our team and unfortunately had to select only one which was very difficult. As a result, our leadership team is very happy with our new team member. I highly recommend Slone Partners’ and without hesitation would engage their service again.
