  • We could not have had a better start with PartnerWise. From the first touch point, John listened closely to our needs and took a lot of time to deeply understand our brand. His knowledge of the industry is unmatched which enabled Maurten to find the best possible candidate. Additionally, I was impressed by the great communication and follow-up’s from his end. This enabled us to backfill the vacant position in a very short time while dedicating our internal resources to the daily business. Without hesitation I would recommend PartnerWise and John for anyone looking to recruit within the sports performance world.
