  • Jackie was extremely professional and did a great job in a remarkably short period of time. We had excellent candidates to review and we were well prepared for the interviews.

    The process was excellent: the interview materials were well organized; draft questions were helpful to the process; and decision-making process was conducive to making a selection.

    The organizational and candidate profile was excellent: the requirements of the position were clear, the interview process was clear as was the overall quality of document.

    Jackie Eder-Van Hook was extremely professional and did a great job in a remarkably short period of time. We had excellent candidates to review and we were well prepared for the interviews. She is very knowledgeable about executive search, associations and nonprofits. I felt respected, listened to, and that my time was used effectively.

    Not much could have been improved. It was well done.

  • Mr. Van Hook, This is just a brief note to let you know how much I appreciate the job that John did during the CEO transition period. After being selected as the new CEO, John provided me with internal reports and analyses that were extremely helpful in my getting up to speed. Because John had checked the typical CEO boxes and had sent me informational documents and emails, I did not have to spend much time reviewing items like D&O insurance but instead was able to immediately begin work on the business strategy and growth planning. Today, my eleventh day, I feel as though I am at least two months ahead of schedule. John also has a pleasurable personality and was enjoyable to work with during the transition.

  • Jackie, I wanted to let you know how much I as an individual (and as the figurative spokesman for the WPS) appreciate your involvement and assistance over the last 5 months. Your style and expertise, however one might label your gifts, were perfect for helping us with the transition we faced. You have probably heard it before but I don't know what we would have done without you. Thank you and I hope your next assignment is just a tad bit easier.

  • Jackie conducted the search for the Executive Director slot for the Marine Technology Society. Her work with the MTS Board in helping them identify their needs and the guidance she provided to the search committee throughout the process were excellent. Not only was Jackie skilled at developing an excellent candidate pool, she used her organizational development training to help the organization to stay focused and make conscience decisions regarding the future of the MTS. Jackie partnered with senior volunteer and staff leadership to make the search a very productive exercise on a number of different levels including selecting and hiring a candidate who was an exceptional fit for the organization. She also worked with MTS to assure the best possible environment for the introduction and orientation of the new Executive Director to establish the scenario for a successful long-term relationship between the organization and their new executive.
