Client Reviews

“Rob Negron of Selby Jennings is one of the strongest recruiters we've worked with. Rob has repeatedly identified senior and junior bankers that were a perfect fit for us that weren't on the radar of other recruiting firms. As M&A focused investment bankers, we are constantly trying to move our deals forward which requires untiring tenacity, exceptional client service, high attention to detail and patience. These characteristics are challenging to find in potential candidates and, in our experience, very difficult to find among recruiters. Rob stands out from the rest and Selby Jennings has been a pleasure to work with. We have directly recommended Rob to a number of other firms and will continue to do so. “ 

- Doug Stowe – Jordan Edmiston Group

“I've used many recruiters over the years, so I have perspective on what makes a good recruiter. Alex is a pro!
He invested the time to truly understand the type of candidate we needed; the demands of the position, the culture of the company, and the experience and general qualifications required to succeed.
Alex was consultative in his approach to presenting candidates. He offered what he saw as pros and cons. He explained how candidates compared to others in the marketplace and why he was endorsing candidates.
As candidates progressed through our interview and selection process, I felt Alex was part of our team. He helped us decide when to proceed, or not. 
He kept us informed on his firm's candidate sourcing process, advised us on industry nuances (we are a US company, recruiting in the UK), and helped us compare and contrast candidate's qualifications.
We're delighted with the sales professional he helped us hire and will definitely use Alex and Selby Jennings for our next hire.”

“Jeff and his team have quickly become my company's "Go-To" firm for quantitative, highly-skilled roles. Jeff's ability to gain trust with his clients and candidates is one of the primary reasons he consistently delivers top talent to our teams. He quickly picks up on our priorities and is diligent in evaluating the skill set of candidates and how well their values align with our company's culture. We recently hired an experienced Trader through Jeff and his background exceeded our expectations both technically and behaviorally. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Jeff and his team and highly recommend him to those looking to develop a relationship with a competent, adaptable and communicative professional.”

“I recently worked with Gary (April 2017-June 2017) as I was looking to transition to a new employer and after our initial conversation he presented me with an opportunity that matched everything that I was seeking. Through the entire process Gary was professional, transparent, managed expectations (both from my side and the employers side). and was incredibly helpful. He provided very valuable and meaningful insight and was always available to discuss any questions or concerns that I had. I have had the chance to speak with a number of recruiters / staffing professionals and Gary distinguishes himself by truly valuing his relationships and works tirelessly to satisfy all parties in the process. I highly recommend Gary to anyone who is seeking new employment opportunities in finance.”
