Some nice things customers have said...

Luke and I recently worked together at Sequence when he helped to place two key roles for us. Luke was a delight to work with from day one.
He was clearly very knowledgeable about the design landscape and was able to immediately give advice on guidance on the profile we were looking for.
He was conscientious in his approach and ensured his pipeline always represented a diverse set of  candidates.

I couldn't recommend Zest enough and look forward to working with them again soon.

I would strongly recommend Allen and the team at Zest based on a recent Product Director hire they delivered for us at General System. Blending deep tech knowledge/experience with strategic product management (in a completely new market segment) was the priority, which made the search particularly challenging and nuanced. Allen delivered! We're delighted with our new hire who is already making a big impact, and it wasn't by chance that we found him.

Thanks Allen for delivery on a challenging but critical brief!

Luke's been instrumental in helping me build and recruit Emitwise's design team from the ground up, and has consistently gone above and beyond. As well as sending me excellent, hand-picked candidates, Luke has given me great advice around recruitment practices and processes for product design.

He is receptive to feedback, able to adjust quickly to changing circumstances, and is an efficient talent partner, qualities that are vital if you're working with fast-growing startups.
