I met François Lebailly earlier in my career, when setting up and carrying out a massive recruitment drive for assistant managers.
Through his ability to listen and his sense of realism, the recruitment system put together by François proved a resounding success, and delivered applicants and recruits who met our specifications.
I greatly appreciated his follow-up and good communication, his ethics and professional rigour, and the quality of the relationship he established with his client; not forgetting his good sense of humour and his openness of spirit.
Afterwards, we stayed in contact and I had the pleasure to work with François again when using his FL Executive Search operation to recruit a senior manager.
An important factor in our collaboration was the transparency and confidence that he demonstrated in his ability to take on the assignment and deliver successful results. He has an excellent ability to listen, which allowed him to select candidates who were well matched to the brief and who were compatible with the values and culture of the company.
I also appreciate the quality of our discussions on topics away from the recruitment assignment, on trends and innovations in human resources and the development of talent.
I will most certainly collaborate with FL Executive Search again in the future, an excellent and sympathetic winning team!
