Laven & Loeb, Inc. takes the time to get to know you and your business to ensure they are identifying people who are the right fit for the position. Ava Laven is a good friend and phenomenal executive recruiter who has helped me rebuild our leadership team, in addition to successfully identifying for us an excellent candidate to fill an open Board Seat position."

She conducted thorough reference checks and always presented candidates that were within salary range. With a work force of over 25,000 employees and many positions available, Ava could always be counted on to quickly fill a difficult position."

- Talent Acquisition Manager - Insurance Company - (Confidential Client)

" Over the last 4+ years, the partnership with Laven & Loeb has enabled us to hire over 15 new executives across all lines of our business. They are a small, nimble firm that very quickly learned our company culture and has been able to interest a wide range of diverse talent for the executive opportunities that we have had. They listen to our business requirements and honor our compensation structure in a way that creates mutually beneficial searches for both our company and the candidates we are talking to. They stay focused and engaged all the way through the searches, even for those that we have needed to change and restart, without losing patience or trying to force candidates on us just to fill the position. We appreciate all the talent they have engaged on our behalf and look forward to future opportunities."

- Angie Fyfe, EVP Enterprise Services - Apria Healthcare

" I have worked with Ava in two very different companies - different industries, cultures, needs, etc. In both situations, she was able to grasp our business model, organizational needs, and company culture in a very short period of time to deliver high quality candidates for our consideration. I have hired several of her candidates in the past and some have been promoted to even greater roles within the organization. Ava is extremely customer-focused, results-oriented, and adept at understanding your individualized needs and delivering against those requirements. I would highly recommend her to any organization who is quickly looking to fill key roles with exceptional talent."

" I have worked with Laven & Loeb for at least 15 years. They have been my go to partner for securing hard to fill executive positions across the globe.  What always amazes me is how in tune they are to my organization and specific leadership needs. Without fail, they have quickly identified several appropriate candidates and have been able to capture both skill and culture fit. I have used them in at least four different organizations and the results have always been exceptional. In my current organization, they have successfully placed at least five leaders who sit at top levels of the organization. All candidates exhibit strong tenure, ethics, and ability. The relationship with Laven & Loeb is truly a partnership. Even when I have tried to use other vendors, I return to Laven & Loeb because I can depend on them without reservation. They are a loyal and committed partner.”
