I have been lucky to have retained Mike Ruiz in multiple organizations since 2007. Mike has worked tirelessly to fill roles from supervisory to senior leader role in multiple business areas and industries across the US. Mike has made recruiting so much easier by his understanding of the market and ready database of quality candidates. Mike is a recruiter that stays in contact with his candidates making the experience as quality for them as it is for the employer – his reputation is widely known in the industry. I have been both a candidate and a client of Mike and I keep my resume with him even when not looking as I trust him to find a role with my best interests in mind.
With that, Mike understands culture and the “fit” of a candidate which goes well beyond skills, experience and compensation. From many sources Mike finds a way to understand the culture of your organization and find a match with candidates and vice versa to ensure that no one’s time is wasted. Often the #2 candidate that Mike refers is later hired for a vacancy without a wider search – he is that “on target”.
If you have not tried the services that Mike Ruiz offers I would suggest that you trial a role in your organization as I am confident he will meet your expectations

I am writing a recommendation of Michael Ruiz and on his organizations' behalf in regards to their competency in performing search both domestically and internationally in a permanent placement capacity. Several years ago I was running staffing for a division of Honeywell International, specifically the specialty materials division which emcompassed 40 plants globally and over $5 Billion in annual revenue. Michael and his team successfully completed both domestic and international recruiting assignments including the recruitment and placement of a candidate out of Italy and placed in Honeywell's offices in Seelze, Germany at the compensation level of $145,000 + 20% Target bonus. I was pleased with Michael's ability to execute that work and have maintained a networking relationship with him over the last 7 years.
It has been our pleasure, since 2007, to work with Global Talent Solutions (GTS) as a strategic retained search partner to fill some of our most critical positions. These positions have ranged from executives at the Vice President Level down to engineers/supervisors on the production floor. On every occasion, Global Talent Solutions has delivered exceptionally qualified candidates even on our most challenging positions and holds a very favorable project/placement ratio with us. We are looking forward to a continued partnership and endorse Global Talent Solutions as a valued search/recruitment vendor.
As the Corporate Project Engineering Manager at ICI Paints (an Akzo Nobel company) I have worked with Mike Ruiz on many of our “tough to fill” positions. GTS has worked closely with ICI Paints on specialized hard to fill technical and management positions. Mike has always presented multiple top quality high caliber candidates for each position. ICI Paints has a strong corporate culture developed over 86 years of producing a variety of chemicals and specialized surface coatings. It is important to select candidates that are a cultural fit and that can pass a rigorous background check and hiring process. Global Talent Solutions has worked with ICI Paints as true business partners to pre-qualify candidates to enter our hiring process. The candidates that GTS pre screened moved through the ICI Paints hiring process much faster than candidates presented by other agencies. The skill and speed of Global Talent Solutions has reduced hiring costs and time to fill positions.
Over the past two years Cytec Industries Inc. has worked directly with Mike and Global Talent Solutions (GTS) on an ongoing retained basis in efforts to fill our most critical positions. On every occasion, he has provided a level of service which I would consider to be above and beyond the industry standard. Every organization has a culture that is unique. Different people fit well in different situations. GTS goes the extra mile to make sure that each candidate is not only exceptionally qualified for the position but is also a compatible fit with our corporate culture. Every individual that Mike has placed with Cytec Industries Inc. has fit in well, performed admirably, and has grown professionally and personally. Mike and GTS have proven that they place a high value on building strong client relationships and strive to provide the very best pre-screened candidates.
Mike did a great job listening to my needs and finding not one but several very good candidates to choose from. After six months I am thrilled with the candidate we chose.
For over three years I have worked directly with Global Talent Solutions both as a client/hiring authority and as a candidate. Having been on both sides of recruitment process with you gives me a unique perspective on your business process, search methodology, and overall organizational structure. On every occasion, Global Talent Solutions has exceeded my expectations! It’s a comfort to know that when we have “critical fill” openings, I have a professional team of search experts in my corner. When it comes to identifying, recruiting and on boarding the best possible candidates, you clearly set the standard high in the search industry. Thank you for a consistent “job well done”!
I had the pleasure of working with Michael as he recruited me to join GE Aviation. He always kept me informed and listened to my questions as he walked me through the process. Michael was extremely helpful throughout the entire recruiting phase and could anticipate my concerns before I brought them up. Michael's a very hard working individual and I'm glad I was able to work with him.
Michael is a highly talented recruiter who is very attuned to the needs of his clients. I found that he was very involved from start to finish of the recruiting process and offered several excellent tips that helped me to better prepare for my interview. He offered very insightful and timely advice that served me well and I was very grateful for the time and effort he put into ensuring that I was well prepared. His advice was not limited to the interview process alone. He also offered up valuable tips, videos and examples of on how to resign without burning any bridges with my previous employer. I would highly recommend Michael to anybody that is seeking to find new and exciting opportunities. With Michael in your corner, you can't go wrong. He is very thorough, extremely approachable and does a great job of helping build your confidence. He will do everything he can to ensure that you have the best possible chance of being successful. And most importantly, Michael will continue to be a resource that you can depend on for the rest of your career. He is, without a doubt, the best recruiter that I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with.
GTS provided me the lead for my last position. During the entire interview/hiring process, they always made themselves available for any and all questions I had. They are highly proficient, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend their services to anyone looking to make a career move or trying to fill an open position within their company.
Mike is a very experienced Recruiter! He is very detailed and worked by my side through the entire process. If you looking for a great recruiter with access to tons of desirable positions, then Mike is your guy!
