I like referring John recruiting leads because he has placed quality candidates with my clients. I have a high degree of confidence that he will find quality candidates that will enhance my clients’ business and help in their success.  The 18-month guarantee is a bonus.  John makes it very easy to refer clients to FRS.

John takes an in depth look at his client; gets to know who they are as an organization, as people and that has enabled him to be a powerful resource for our organization.  His professionalism and integrity is exceptional.

CEO, Universal Surveillance Systems


John has helped us with multiple positions through the years.  On one particular search, we decided after 8 months that the candidate was not the ideal fit.  John had provided us with his 18-month guarantee.  He came back in and completed a second search at no cost to J&W.  The replacement candidate has been a great addition to our company.  John not only offers a great guarantee, but stands behind it.  We wouldn’t think of using another search firm for our accounting needs.

President, J&W Lumber


We have turned to John for two very critical roles within our organization and he really delivered for us.  John has a very structured process that enables him to deliver high caliber candidates that not only fit the technical aspects of the job, but also the cultural requirements as well.  John explains what he’s going to do and then he goes out and gets it done.

Dana Kemp

President, Masonry Concepts, Inc



We brought John in on a search that was proving to be very difficult.  He spent the time to really understand the inner workings of the position and the impact that it would have on us organizationally.  It’s no surprise that we hired an ideal fit for our company.  John delivered as promised.

Debbie Chelberg

Director of Human Resources, Ortho Organizers Inc


John Van Deusen is our go-to resource for retained search services for Chief Financial Officers, Controllers or Senior Finance executives.  He may be the most connected person in that space.  He knows more CFOs and Controllers than anyone else.  He does a thorough job, matching his clients’ needs with the ideal candidate.  Often he presents multiple options for a position with the only downside being the need to make a decision on several high-quality candidates.

John takes into account company culture.  He never over-sells a position and he has one of the most expansive guarantees in any area of retained search.  We have referred John into our clients on numerous occasions and he has delivered.  His success enhances our relationship with our clients and makes us look like geniuses.
