Client Endorsements

Brainworks has done a great job for us at Blue Point. Despite the fact that we typically recruit off-cycle, he has been able to find highly qualified candidates that fit our culture – all within tight timeframes. We have also benefitted from the fact that Brainworks is able to source unique candidates from firms and locations that we don’t get from other recruiters.
