"I found the manner by which the search was conducted by Bill to be both professional and within our time and budget parameters. The Burgess Group provided us with a candidate slate that was representative, diverse, and met ourspecifications and expectations. The successful candidate for the position was required to have a strong managerial civil engineering background, capable of supervising several engineering divisions within the bureau. All of the proposed candidates that I selected and interviewed for the position pesented, met and exceeded the job specifications we required."

"Before and after the retirement of my predecessor in 2007, The Burgess Group conducted two (3) three mid-level searches for the Media Arts and Culture Unit (MAC) of the Ford Foundation of which I am now the Director. In 1994, the practice was first engaged by the Foundation to source, identify, evaluate and present candidates for a Program Offcer. The candidate The Burgess Group presented rose through the ranks and was so successful here at Ford that when he retired, the Director of MAC, took his suggestion to rehire The Burgess Group to recruit his successor. The Burgess Group's President, Wiliam H. (Bill) Burgess, III conducted our searches. His familiarity with the Foundation and its operations and Bill's quick comprehension of the reorganzed Unit's requirements and new set of priorities, made him the right selection in getting the best qualified candidates to our Search Committee for consideration. Bill and his staff fully understood and appreciated our needs and the successful candidates he placed are still with Ford and providing the expertise we definitely needed to expand MAC's programs."

"Mr. William H. Burgess, III, President, is an exceptional leader who partners with Queens Library to understand our business and staffing needs to fill a role.  Mr. Burgess and his associates invest time and effort to ensure they understand the organization and position requirements from the relevant stakeholders in order to refer highly qualified candidates, optimizing the time of the Queens Library staff.  The Burgess Group participated in two recent searches for Queens Library in the past seven months.  Our new Controller was a candidate of Mr. Burgess and his associates and Mr. Burgess participated in our CFO search.  We were pleased with the caliber of candidates Mr. Burgess and his team provided for both searches.  Each candidate was capable of bringing value to our roles.

Mr. Burgess’ background and experiences ideally suit him to identify and present unique, highly qualified talent for senior leadership positions, particularly in Finance."
