Our referrals to Kevin and staff have always been rewarded with honest, knowledgable and cost-effective service.
Kevin is an excellent manager who provides those new to the recruiting industry with training, techniques, and strategies to be an effective and efficient recruiter. Not only did I learn how to be an effective recruiter in a short amount of time but I also learned the banking industry in this same amount of time. Through Kevin's dedication and true desire to see me succeed, I was able to successfully learn not only how to be a recruiter but a banking recruiter. Thank you Kevin.
Kevin has an extensive and impressive background in placement - finance, banking, information technology and general management. His style is one of a mentor, motivator and solicitor of input and feedback. He is very good at summarizing salient and key points and is a very quick study with understanding client needs. He is very adept at building and nurturing relationships. He has a way of imparting his perspective in a very effective manner. I find him to be one of the most professional and interesting people I have met - I consider him to be a coach/mentor of mine.
I've known Kevin for many years, and have always been extremely impressed at his knowledge and instincts as a business leader. Kevin knows how to get the heart of complex business environments, and relationships, to create winning outcomes for his companies and partner companies. And I have to add Kevin's integrity, and willingness to go beyond "just business" has always been a part of who he is.
Kevin is an experienced and professional provider in assisting me with recruitment efforts in the banking and financial services industry. He is very responsive and always goes the extra mile to provide the best possible service and or candidates.
Kevin is also extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of Human Resources and has provided good counsel in this area as well.
I would highly recommend Kevin for your staffing or HR information needs.
Honesty, loyalty, a straight-shooter, these are personal characteristics that may be rarer these days but are still highly valued. Kevin O'Malley represents the best of these values. I would add the discipline and willingness to take on unpopular but necessary projects when others are not demonstrating leadership and seeing them through to the end.
Kevin was a HUGE help in turning around my failing manufacturing business. Two years later, rather than bankruptcy, his logical business plan, focused leadership, and superior knowledge of business helped me sell my business profitably to a Korean company. Kevin devised a strategic plan to reorganize (and re-energize) the current employees, focus on cash flow and margin, and ultimately, convert the company from a failing manufacturing business into a saleable distribution company.
With his leadership, our company was able to exit the industry with grace, repay our vendors, and finally get some profit!
Kevin was a great mentor to me in the beginning of my Recruiting career. He always offered great insight on the "Psyche of a Candidate". He took the time to take me under his wings, and taught me the importance of building relationships; not only with the client but the candidate also. 10 years later, I still call him from time to time to pick his brain and as always he offers some of the most innovative ideas. Working for Kevin was one of the best experiences of my career, and I owe alot of my success to him.
There are so few people in this world who can compete with Kevin O'Malley when it comes to understanding people. I have personally learned so much from this man that still to this day I will connect with him quickly for advice or to just hear his professional approach/candor. He is very special to anyone seeking any banking advice from looking for talent to finding the correct new spot for yourself. There is simply nobody better that I know working in the banking recruiting field.
