“I’ve worked with a large number of recruiters over the years with varying success. From my first phone conversation with Betsy, I knew right away that she was different. Betsy has a knack for matching the right candidate with the right opportunity and insures that it’s a great fit for both parties involved. She guided me seamlessly through the entire process and was there every step of the way from the first interview to the last. With Betsy’s help I was able to secure a rewarding position with a highly successful organization and I’m happy to say that I love my job! I would highly recommend Betsy to companies and candidates alike. Simply put…she’s the best in the business.”
“In search of a recruiter who specialized in the Sales arena to help us fill a management role, I was lucky enough to have found Betsy via my professional network and I am pleased that she is now part of that network! Betsy is a true professional and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She took the time for a personal visit and met with all the key players to gain true insight into the culture of our organization. From start to finish, she was thorough, diligent and left no stone unturned. I look forward working with her again in the future.”
Human Resources Generalist
“I will say, Betsy, that since you placed me years ago, I have worked with a few different recruiters, expecting all of those experiences to be like the one I had with you. Sadly, I was mistaken. Thank you for being so professional and so good at what you do.“
National Account Manager
“Betsy’s middle name is “Integrity.” When our company was in the process of hiring a sales professional, Betsy helped us to lay out the profile to guarantee success. Her no-nonsense approach went a long way in making sure that we found just the right person. After the hire, Betsy went above and beyond by calling me – several times – just to make sure our new sales leader had the tools to optimize her success. Betsy is a superior coach and an ethical, skilled professional.”

Human Resource Coordinator
“I have worked with Betsy for years and she has helped to place some very talented people in various sales organizations that I have been involved with over the last several years (Teleatlas, Rave Wireless). She always goes the extra mile to find great candidates and is keenly focused on meeting the spec and deadline. I would highly recommend her to those that are looking to mine superior talent to better their organization – Betsy delivers!”
Senior VP of Sales
“I worked with Betsy on a critical hire for Director of North American Sales. She did an excellent job of screening, prioritizing and closing our target candidate. I would definitely work with her again for open sales and marketing positions.”
Senior Vice President
“Betsy has a rigorous process for pre-qualifying candidates so that by the time they get to us we know they have strong qualifications for the job we are looking for. We tend to have a high percentage of the candidates she presents that we hire and thus we save time and build a better team of employees.”
Enterprise Center at Salem State University
“It was such a pleasure to work with Betsy and Sales and Marketing Search this year. I find Betsy to be unique in her field in that she truly listens and strives to learn as much as she can about the company, culture and need before she sends a single candidate through your door. I have wasted countless hours in the past working with other recruiters who would send me unqualified candidates, simply because they didn’t listen well and did not have the same level of professionalism and dedication that Betsy does. She focuses on quality over quantity and I can honestly say that each person she sent to us was qualified and a potential fit for our opening. We are extremely happy working with her and the results and would gladly recommend her services.”
Senior Vice President
Building Engines, Inc.
“I’ve had the opportunity to work with Betsy and her firm, Sales & Marketing Search on more than one occasion. Based upon her expertise and the stellar results, I will definitely be working with Betsy again. I highly recommend Betsy and Sales & Marketing Search.”
“I’ve known Betsy since the ’80’s. Betsy is an accomplished executive recruiter specializing in finding and placing sales candidates. She has been in business for a very long time and therefore has a network that is hard to match. She is personable, insightful, competent and honest. I recommend her without reservation.”

“Working with Betsy, I am able to avoid the typically labor-intensive process associated with hiring. Every candidate I’ve hired from Betsy proved to be a valuable team player and provided significant return on my recruiting fee investment.”
Medical Market Development Director
“I’ve worked with Betsy on several sales searches over the years; I consider her partnership a valued, integral part of my talent acquisition strategy for good sales people. Betsy has always maintained a real understanding of the marketplace, economics, and industry shifts that may (or may not) be impacting our ability to find the best possible talent at any given time. I appreciate her candor, professionalism and follow-through, knowing she operates with only the highest integrity. She represents candidates and client companies equally well.”
Senior Director-Recruiting and Operations
“I have hired Betsy a number of times for a variety of vertical markets. Betsy does a great job understanding the business challenges, culture and performance metrics up-front, so that she can do a search efficiently and effectively. I’ve had great success.”
Venture Capitalist/Management Consultant
“We had been attempting to fill a position in Minnesota for over 10 months. We had tried doing it ourselves but it was too time consuming and the recruiters we had used produced less-than-qualified results. After meeting with Betsy, she took the time to understand our business and (most importantly) our company. In a matter of weeks, Betsy had interviews set up with five very good candidates. In fact, if it weren’t for the fact that I was looking to fill just one position, I could have hired all five! She had great follow up each week and let me know exactly how we were doing in the search. The candidate we hired through Sales & Marketing is incredible and has already made a significant impact on both our employees and our customers. Anytime I have future recruiting needs, I will definitely utilize the services of Betsy and her team.”
“In the eighteen years we have been in business, we have utilized recruiters extensively. Since we started working with Betsy Harper, however, she has raised the bar significantly, both in terms of the results she produces for us and the way she handles the recruiting process. Betsy’s energy and her follow-through have always given us the sense that she is taking care of us and that we are a very high priority for her. She is extremely responsive, resourceful and ethical, and I feel that she always works in the best interest of both the prospective employee and the employer. This approach sets her apart from other firms and, in our case, has translated into excellent candidates who have become outstanding employees.”
Welsh Consulting, Inc.
“As I sit here wrapping up a successful search for two sales reps, I am overwhelmed by the ease of the entire Sales and Marketing Search process and I want to make sure you know the depth of my gratitude.
Here are some of the reasons for my satisfaction: You were a quick study in assessing our needs (and the few times when clarification was needed, you took my direct style in stride); you hit the ground running and quickly arranged interviews with good candidates; those candidates were well briefed, had appropriate expectations and good questions. We have completed this entire process in record time and I couldn’t possibly be more pleased.
When I think of the number of hours I would have had to invest in this process had I continued this search without the services of Sales and Marketing Search, I cringe. Not only would the search be incomplete, I doubt I would be half so enthusiastic about our prospects.”
The SBANE Educational Center
“Verndale is a growing business. While in most cases, we’ve been able to hire without the help of a recruiter, we understood that finding the right new business developer required a capable and conscientious partner — someone that could help us find the right person for the job as well as provide us guidance with the compensation structure. And as a small business, we knew that we couldn’t afford to make the wrong decision.
I’m delighted to say we found our partner in Betsy Harper and her firm Sales and Marketing Search. She was incredibly helpful to us throughout the entire process — tweaking the job description, discussing the compensation model, and most importantly, finding the ideal candidate. I can’t say enough about the quality of her work and the valuable role she’s played in helping us grow our business.”
