Susan Butera, VP Marketing, Full Compass Systems
I had the pleasure of working with Ward Perrott and the team at Madison Executive Search as both a candidate and a client. As a candidate, Ward was attentive, informative, and understanding. He has a talent for aligning one’s skills and experiences with the needs of a company or position. As a client, Ward was equally attentive, informative, and understanding. He presented well-vetted candidates that met our experience and budget requirements. Ward and the employees at Madison Executive Search are a no-nonsense team that will tell it to you straight all while maintaining the highest level of professionalism. They have my recommendation all around.
Brad Ekiss, Director of Marketing, Valley Vet Supply
Ward Perrott recruited me for my current role as Director of Marketing for Valley Vet Supply and I highly recommend him based on his people, communication and follow up skills. Throughout the entire recruiting process, Ward was very professional, knowledgeable, informative and helpful. Best of all, Ward continually practiced the highest level of follow through of any recruiter I’ve worked with. Bottom line, it was a real pleasure working with Ward.
Jane Buck, Media Director, Custom Direct
Ward was great to work with. I truly appreciated that I could always reach him through the search process. I have recommended him often to both hiring companies and applicants and will gladly continue to do so. He learns the company, discusses the culture, plays devil’s advocate and follows through where necessary.
Ken Lane, Founder Hathaway & Lane Direct
I have had the pleasure of working with Ward and Madison Executive Search from both sides of the table over the past several years. The process of being placed was well-managed and well-executed with every “t” crossed and “i” dotted. Other recruiters have ultimately managed to waste my time, as well as that of the hiring company. Not Ward. In fact, many years later when I needed external assistance for a senior-level hire,Madison Executive Search presented quality candidates, did the necessary pre-screens and help me move my company to the next level
Craig Reynolds, President of Cigars International
Over the past 30 years, I have worked with many recruiters, as both a candidate and hiring manager. There is no one I would rather work with than Ward at Madison Executive Search in filling a multi-channel position. Not only is Ward extremely plugged in to the talent pool, but he knows and understands the industry and requirements of the job, usually better than the company doing the search. However, what I appreciate and admire most about Ward, even more than his extraordinary ability to find exactly the right person, is that he is ethical and truly cares about the people he is working with and for. Every assignment and candidate is the most important thing to Ward, and he makes you feel that way. The best praise I can give Ward is to say I trust him implicitly and will work with him every chance I get.
Larry Benjamin, Vice President Marketing & Merchandising, Valley Vet Supply
I appreciated the persistence and tenacity Ward displayed on a challenging search assignment that Madison Executive Search worked on for me. That kind of approach to successfully finding the “best fit” candidates is just what a top-notch recruiter should provide, and I believe Ward and Madison executive Search does just that.
Steve Jones, Principal, Analytics Direct & Former VP Marketing, USAA
I have worked with Ward on several projects over the years and I know him to have the highest level of core values in honesty, integrity and service. He is extremely talented in his ability to identify the right talent, and equally as important, the right fit for particular organizations needs. He is very well connected throughout the direct / “multichannel” marketing industry and I highly recommend his services for your organization.
Scott Koerner, COO, Rackup.com
I’ve worked with dozens of recruiters through the course of my career, both using recruiters to fill positions and being recruited. I put Ward and Madison Executive Search at the top of my list in terms of capability, responsiveness and knowledge of the industry. Filling multi-channel positions is particularly difficult given the unique skills that are required in that environment; Ward always comes through with great candidates and works diligently to ensure success. Without a doubt I will again be using Madison Executive Search when the need to fill a critical role arises.
Bob Warren, Former SVP-President, NEBS Direct Marketing
Ward Perrott is the most knowledgeable and well connected direct marketing search firm professional that I know. I value his assessments of opportunities, his perspective on management teams and cultures, as well as his insider knowledge of top multi-channel performers. He is someone whose counsel I seek out. He is also someone I trust implicitly and am pleased to recommend without reservation.
George Woodward, Former VP Marketing, Stylin’ Concepts
I have worked with Ward several times over the last few years, he did a successful search for me, filling a very difficult position, and I have worked with him as a candidate as well. Ward works hard to understand your needs and then to help you craft the position requirements so he can target and present quality candidates. In my opinion Ward is one of the best DM recruiters, I would use him again and I highly recommend him.”Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity.

We hired Madison Executive Search to recruit VP Marketing for us. Ward proved to be diligent, resourceful, well connected and very knowledgeable about the Direct Marketing industry. M.E.S. brought us several high caliber candidates in a short period of time which lead to a successful placement.
