  • I wanted to take a moment to let you know what an excellent job you have done helping me by recruiting skilled talent. Having worked with three other recruiting firms and having no success, I was becoming weary with the process. You clearly have an extraordinary skill set for finding qualified talent in the Financial Services industry. The energy and enthusiasm you employed in the recruitment effort supported my goals beautifully. I am appreciative of not only the level of talent provided for my hiring search, but also the attention to detail in vetting the candidates and the follow-up after their interviews. I couldn’t be more pleased with your services.

  • I have enjoyed working with Michael at ThinkingAhead. When we first connected early in 2017, we had no hiring needs. When the need arose a few months later and I contacted Michael, he immediately began asking good questions to thoroughly understand our business and our needs for the position we sought to fill. Understanding our business and our culture were key to finding good candidates for Legacy, not just names to throw our way. We had clear and frank conversations about our expectations and about potential candidates that have resulted in a hire that we hope to be a great fit for the person hired, for Legacy, and ultimately for the clients that we will serve together.

    - Managing Director RIA
  • Having spoken to many recruiters over the years, it is usually clear within a couple of minutes if a recruiter understands financial advisors or not. Michael gets it. From the initial phone call to the closing agreement, it was a smooth and painless process. Whether someone is looking to hire high quality individuals or they are looking to make a move to another organization, I highly recommend working with Michael for your needs.

  • I had an occasion recently to work with Michael Glover of Thinkingahead. Michael identified 2 great candidates for us to consider within a very short period of time. We’ve been very happy with the candidate that we selected and if we should need assistance again with locating the right talent for one of our open positions I would contact Michael again. I can state without hesitation that I would recommend Thinkingahead and specifically Michael Glover to assist you with your hiring needs.
