Our clients define our success


"Great candidates don’t look at job boards, LI jobs or review companies because they aren’t looking and don't have the time."

CA / Automic

" “The team at KEY MAN Search understand DevOps and the complex, Enterprise sales skills we require. Time and time again this team delivers experienced and proven Enterprise Reps for my team.  When I can get a high degree of qualified candidates, my onboarding is shortened, which means quicker producing reps and more revenue for my organization, thus resulting in higher employee satisfaction.   In 12 yrs. of Sales leadership, Doug’s team provides the most consistent, exceptional candidates, as compared to other search firms.”


Joel Carabello, Vice President Automic Software (July 2017)
