We'd been looking to fill a senior creative role for quite some time. Of course to save on those nasty headhunter costs, we decided to use our own resources for the search. The search was fruitless. Then I spoke to Sally on the phone one day and told her of our dilemma and she immediately said "Oh Darling!! I've got the perfect person!!!". And she wasn't wrong. She put us in touch with Wendy Mace and within about a week, the deal was done. Wendy is an absolute superstar and has made a significant impact on our business. We love her.
The moral of this story is: When you want good people, don't f@$k around with your own Rolodex, just call Sally.
