Andrew Weeden, UK Partner, iTMC Group, CEO iTMC Globalless

“Steve came into a organization (EMEA Theatre) and very quickly turned around an underachieveing recruitment effort. Not only were high quality candidates identified, but were quickly put through the process and ultimatley hired. These results have in turn positioned the EMEA Sales efforts to attain all revenue goals and accelerate at a pace which is consistent with the overall market growth - 35% annualized!! Without this effort from Steve and the team he has assembled, both the success of the EMEA theatre as well as the growth of Polycom would not be consistent with Board and market expectations. Steve is results driven, quality minded and expert in the field of Staffing.” March 6, 2008

Tom Magas, Senior Director, WW Field Sales & Operations - Polycom

"Steve has led the EMEA recruitment team for Polycom for over a year now, and has done all I have asked of him. Management time has been freed up by the focus that he and the team have provided on sourcing, screening and interviewing. Our sourcing profile has changed from agency-dominated to mainly direct. Steve and the team have coped well with volume recruitment requirements in a complex, pan-EMEA environment. This has entailed working closely with hiring managers, understanding the requirements of any given role and being sensitive to the various cultures across EMEA. And Steve himself brings a lot of drive, energy and passion to the recruitment task.” May 8, 2008

Marc Weeden, EMEA HR Director, Polycom

"Getting high quality talent over the past four years for the specialized technical support area was difficult, but with the assistance of Steven Biggs' teams, our needs were met with professional, experienced people."

Caesar Snee - Former Director, Technical Services - 3Com Corporation

I have worked with Steve as both a client of his recruitment services and as a candidate for a senior position. I found the approach taken by Steve at biggSolutions to be somewhat unique in that the personal level of attention and detail was exceptional.

As a client I felt that Steve worked very hard to fully understand our business needs and provide a tailored service. This resulted in not only ensuring we found the right people, but also saved time.

I would recommend biggSolutions if you are looking for a 'partner approach' to recruitment.

Stuart Hudson - Sales Director, Amulet Hotkey

"....one of our first tasks was to construct a network operations center in San Francisco and locate experienced people to staff this critical portion of our company. Steven's team was able to assist us in this effort by referring extremely high quality candidates with the right combination of skills, experience and ambition to be successful in a startup environment. He stood out from the rest of the recruiting companies by first realizing the urgency of getting our operations started, and secondly by taking the initiative to understand our business and technology needs in order to refer the most appropriate candidates possible. He was consistently responsive to our changing needs as we expanded the company.."

Tim Ryan - Former Manager, Network Deployment - Yipes Communications

"Two Enterprise companies and two network/communications companies have been challenging in the technical recruiting areas, however, over the past 6 years, Steven Biggs has provided, the companies I have been engaged with, over 100 quality consultants and over 40 quality hires! I think he has the best Technical Recruiting teams in the Valley, bar none!.

“Steve and I have worked on projects with Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 comapnies, as well as financial institutions, credit agengies, government and start-ups. Steve has managed to assit me in building the right teams now for 8 1/2 years and is a trusted source. Steve and his team were able to help me recruit top talent, while @ Cisco Systems, Lucent Technologies, Digital Island and more. I have utilized over 50 of Steve's consultants and hired almost all of them. 10 years later I still have two of those employees with me in my current company."

Sarah A. Lynn - CEO & President - SeyMoor Technologies, Inc.

"In the past 4 years of hiring technical personnel, Steven Biggs has provided the best recruiting services for my organization. As the hiring manager at Mellon Capital Management, I found Steven to be very effective in responding to the most challenging technical positions with good quality and well-screened candidates. I strongly recommend Steven's services to managers seeking a recruiting service that understands technology and someone they can depend on to meet their hiring needs."

C.E. - Former Vice President, Information Systems - Mellon Capital Management

"I have worked with Steve Biggs for over three years, in two companies, as he helped me build multiple teams with diverse job requirements. He has consistently provided superior service and great attention to detail. Most recruiting companies manage to get you a star recruit, ever so often. Steve's consistency in continually providing high quality candidates quickly, dependably and accurately are crucial elements that make him a star recruiter."

Barak Engel - Director of Security Operations - WebEx Communications

"Working with Steve's recruiters on my own job placement was a real pleasure! My resume made it to the decision makers rather than an HR computer doing keyword searches on a thousand other resumes. Their team helped me format my resume for positive results, discovered positions which matched my skills and when I found the position which interested me, they coordinated the interviews and worked with me through salary & final negotiations."

Senior Operations Manger - Enterprise Company

"Steve is able to find the perfect match for a company. He translates business and company requirements into a job description. He then finds candidates via his extensive network.

In each case, I found Steve to be extremely reliable and perceptive to both the needs of the company and the management he was recruiting for. Steve has never failed to place a candidate. His network and industry knowledge are his main assets and I noticed that candidates get back to him to let him manage their careers.” November 8, 2006
