Testimonials from Sr. Resources placed at Textron Defense Systems – Bell Helicopter while engaged at CapGemini

November 6, 2007

“Ron Krönen brings a unique perspective, a seasoned repertoire, and a laser focus on results and the ability to bridge the needs of candidate and employer to a successful conclusion. The work Ron did for me in recruiting for our account Textron, upwards of six (6) senior technology specialists over the past two months, was nothing short of miraculous. I have the highest regards for Ron as a person and as a professional and would highly recommend him to anyone requiring his services; especially those with impossible needs with little time for execution. Ron is the master.”

With gratitude and respect,

“I’ve worked with a lot of recruiters during my 13 year tenure as an SAP Basis Consultant – some good, some average, some not so good. I have to admit, I was skeptical at first when I received a call from Ron, indicating an interest in my extensive SAP Basis background. I thought, okay, here we go again – another recruiter trying to convince me that I should be represented only by him, and that he could deliver the exact position I was looking for. I have to admit, I was very pleasantly surprised at what was to follow with his client CapGemini and the project at Textron.

There was something very different about the way Ron and I began establishing dialogue. For one, when he said he would market me in such a way that would bring my skills to the forefront, he meant it. When he said he would “get back to me” or “call me” at a particular time, he did. He wasn’t just giving me lip service, he followed through – even at times he was on vacation – to ensure that an open channel of communication was always maintained.

This is the first testimonial I have ever written for a recruiter, and for good reason. None have ever come close to the honesty, commitment and hard work that Ron has shown me. He sets the bar for others in this industry to follow. Most will never come close to the high standards that Ron exhibits in his profession. Why, because most don’t get it. Ron gets it. He is not only the man who has placed me on a very successful engagement with Cap Gemini, he has become my friend. Thank you Ron – for not forgetting one of the very most important aspects that you bring to your profession – a very caring, personable and humanistic approach to your clients.”

“Attention of Ron Krönen

Recruitment Manager

Kanbay CapGemini

Hi Ron,

Just an email to let you know that I really enjoyed working with you in the recruitment process.

You have always responded quickly to any question, this has and made the whole process go nice and smooth.

I must have had more than 50 calls from all kind of recruiters, but very few (if any) as professional as you.

From the moment, you called to see if I was interested in a position you had with Kanbay CapGemini for a project underway at Textron, until I accepted the offer, you have made things happen quick and kept me informed about all the steps in the process, so that I had a good idea of where we were and what to expect.

I must say the whole experience was pleasant and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know.

Kanbay now called CapGemini seems all you said it was, and everyone has been very nice and friendly to me. I am looking forward to my first day and the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship with them.

Thanks again for all you did.”

This letter is a letter of recommendation for Mr. Ron Krönen.

I have worked with many recruiters over the years, and hands down Ron is the best one I have ever worked with. He has in-depth knowledge of SAP, is honest, and really delivers.

Throughout the hiring process he was upfront and prompt with me.

Ron’s attention to detail and work ethic set him apart from all recruiters.

I am excited to start at CapGemini, and work on-site at Textron! thank you for the great experience.”

Some additional testimonials from Deloitte and IBM

From the desk of Matt Hilleary/Deloitte Touché

“When I am asked to describe Ron Kronen, a couple of words come to mind that I feel describe him very well: tenacious, respectful and damn-good recruiter. He has built an impressive career using those three skills to ensure the service he provides each client is at a level far surpassing expectations. I have worked with Ron and continue to work with Ron knowing that I still have much to learn and working with the best will help make me better. He pushes to build the relationship with both the candidate and the client and everyone knows that he is looking out for each person’s best interest.

Ron is very adept at finding the candidate that not only can do the required work, but is also a cultural fit for the company. He knows that it is not worth making a placement just to make a dollar; it is about building the long term relationships that last throughout a person’s career.”

From Managing Director of SAP Global Recruiting Practice at IBM

“Ron Kronen is one the Top Recruiters in the country; he is always professional and courteous.

Ron truly has a “heart” for people which I believe is his key to success. His knowledge of the SAP recruiting industry makes him a valuable asset. While working with Ron at IBM, Ron was always able to provide excellent candidates, no skill set was too difficult for him. The most unique thing about him is the late night e-mails or the early morning e-mails. Ron is the epitome of a great recruiter who never sleeps and always give 110%.”
