“We gave Grant and his team a tough assignment. We chose IAR to help recruit a leadership role that was critical to continue or rapid pace of growth – they got our culture and found us the exact right fit. On top of that they were quick: We had been looking for months and they got it done in six weeks.”

Ted Weitzel, VP of Finance and Operations, G2 Crowd


My advice to other CEO’s is simple - If you are looking to bring in one of the big firms think again – at IAR the ‘A team’ pitches you and the ‘A team’ delivers - you get the best every step of the way.”


“I would highly recommend Grant and his team to other CEO’s looking to grow their executive team. They found us candidates that we would not have been able to reach and their process was extremely well managed. The experience from start to finish was a 10 out of 10!”

“I have worked with Grant for over five years, starting when he was the Head of Talent at InContext, where he recruited me to join as CEO. Most recently, Grant has been an adviser and executive search partner. From day one, I have been impressed by his ability to maneuver in a high pressure, fast paced environment, while focusing on getting the job done. There is a small margin of error when hiring at our stage of growth. For this reason, I continue to place my trust in Grant and the team at IAR.”
