What Our Clients Are Saying

Kira Lafond

I can’t praise the work of Spano Pratt enough. I was recently part of a search committee for a non-profit board I am on. I can say with 100% certainty that we would not have ended up with such an amazing leader for our organization if we had not contracted with Spano Pratt. Rose did an thorough analysis of our needs and walked us through every single step. Her vast network of potential leaders gave us a wonderful slate to choose from and her professional persistence kept us on task and kept the details covered.

I had the pleasure of working with Rose as she helped our non-profit organization search for a new CEO. She worked well with the board for which I serve, kept us on task and on time, and most imporatantly brought forth multiple quality candidates and facilitated the selection process. I would highly recommend working with Rose.
