Client Testimonials

Bill Cook
Executive Vice President of Sales at BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy
Stephen has been a trusted source over the last 15 years for finding
great candidates. He has filled many of my vacancies because he only
sends qualified candidates.


To Whom It May Concern:

This letter is in reference to Steve Hutton, Recruiter. I have been working with Steve for approximately seven months. He has assisted United Therapeutics (UT) assemble a new team for our Commercial Remodulin Clinical Sales division. I have had consistent communication with him during this time with him always promptly responding to my phone calls and emails. Steve takes the time to listen to our company needs and has always provided the highest level of customer service. The candidates he has selected for our interviews fit our company profile and priorities, versus forwarding candidates to us simply because he/she was looking for a job within our organization.

Steve has always assisted in the scheduling of interviews, relaying information to and from candidates, arranging travel accommodations and interfacing with several key individuals within UT. He is extremely professional, confidential and honest, displaying the utmost integrity and business acumen. I wouldn’t consider using another recruiter after developing a relationship with Steve and seeing such positive results from his work ethic and customer service. I have referred many colleagues within the Pulmonary Hypertension community to him as I value and trust his ability to pair an individual with the right company for consideration.

I recently have moved LungRx, a wholly-owned subsidiary of UT, and will have the need to construct a team of newly hired individuals that possess sales and a high level of clinical experience. I have already forwarded Steve’s name to our VP of Sales/Marketing so that he can assist us once again assemble a team of only the best to represent our company. I have no doubt that the caliber of candidates he will offer to us will match our needs, priorities and fit within our company culture.

I highly recommend Steve Hutton who in my opinion does not fit the general term “recruiter.” He has a way of establishing a long-term trusting business relationship where each of us truly succeeds in our overall objectives.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss what Steve can and has offered our team at United Therapeutics.

To Whom It May Concern:

Stephen Hutton assisted me with the hiring of 7 territories recently. He took time to understand my needs for the role, as well as for each territory. Then he quickly built a robust, diverse and highly qualified pool of candidates. Steve communicated with me consistently; he is very responsive both by email and phone. He has a great personality and served as a collaborative partner throughout the process. Due to his great ability to find highly qualified candidates, I was able to fill 6 of the 7 territories within 3 months! I highly recommend his services as a specialty recruiter and I plan to call him again when the need arises.

I recently worked with Steve Hutton as I was changing career direction. Steve was aware of good opportunities in my area and helpful in facilitating interviews. Because of Steve, I landed a solid job with an outstanding company and couldn’t be happier.

To whom it may Concern:

First I want to make an assurance to you that I am do not make it a
custom of endorsing service providers to our company. I, in the
preponderant of instances, regard relations of this kind as strictly
business and quid pro quo. Steve on the other hand is regarded as a
true member of our team and has vitally contributed to the progress
that our company has made over this past year.

I would judge the competency of a recruiter by the following criteria:

Access to the important key contributors in our field. The scope of
their or her sphere of influence and their ability to quickly contact
appropriate candidates. Understanding of the field and knowledge of the
critical influences and success factors of the positions that are being
recruited. Follow through and ability to close a deal.

Steve is outstanding at each of these components of search. I have been
amazed at how efficiently he has been able to turn around assignments
that he has been given. I am equally amazed by the fact that speed does
not compromise the quality of the candidates that he has presented.
Moreover Steve has not hesitated in helping us in areas that would not
result in his earning a fee. He has demonstrated a team spirit and real
interest in adding value to his client.

In the years that I have been involved in recruiting and in my dealings
with search professionals I have rarely been associated with such
professionalism and competency.

Throughout the past 20 years I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Hutton and the team at Employment Leaders. I have assigned them
recruiting initiatives focusing on national sales team development to senior level executive positions. They have consistently delivered the caliber of talent we sought in a professional and expeditious manner. I rate them among the most productive and effective recruiting firms in this space.

Steve: With the brand new year, I wanted to take time to say thanks so
much for all your help during my first few months at U.T. In my career
in the industry, I have had the occasion to work with numerous
recruiters. I must say that my experience with you as been
unique. Your ability to find candidates who fit the challenging profile
which we established has been impressive. You didn’t just settle with
one or two candidates – you consistently managed to find more. You were open to honest feedback when I crossed some off the list, and you went back to the well for even more. You provided assistance in scheduling interviews and maintained flexibility to reschedule throughout challenging travel plans. Most importantly, your candor and
professionalism has been thoroughly appreciated. I look forward to
working with you more inthe future.

Thanks again for all your assistance.

To Whom It May Concern:

I have been working with Steve Hutton at
Employment Leadersfor nearly ten years. I have always found him to be
an excellent source of high-qualitymedical sales candidates. Most
recently, I have been building a highlyspecialized team of twelve
clinical salespeople. Steve has placed over half ofthese positions.
He finds them, prepares them, and very importantly, qualifiesthem so
that I never interview someone who is not appropriate. I have
alwaysenjoyed working with Steve and would be happy to discuss his
attributes overthe phone.
