“CLM is a highly effective exec search firm. The relationship that I experienced with Jack Cahill is very rewarding in every sense. He is combining seniority with an incredible networking capability. He is utilizing his outstanding network within the automotive industry to match the clients needs with appropriate candidates and vice versa. During the search period he provided very valid feedback on my own strengths and weaknesses and conveyed very clear targets of his client. Jack and I kept close contact after the hiring process. He fully understands the industry needs and developments trends on automated driving and is always fun to talk to.His responses on candidate searches are quick and to the point.”

Executive Vice President Europe - Veoneer

“Callum, when it comes to executive search, is a real pro. He recommended me to a CEO position - later when I was in charge, he supported me by filling different positions. Callum always delivered on time and he had the right and fitting candidates. I was very happy with his service and performance and can highly recommend him. If I would have a need to fill a position - talking with Callum is going to be my priority.“

Partner Automotive - WP Board Services

“I was sure about my intuition that to start our projects with CLM wouldn’t be a mistake. In my opinion, you understand exactly what our needs are all about and what profiles and level of interaction we desire. I also understand it's not always easy to follow our way of thinking or read small but important details beyond the lines but during our projects we started together, you proved high quality work in a timely fashion. I like your ability to anticipate major milestones and set the routine that gives me the opportunity to be regularly updated, to track the progress and align next steps. Based on my time working with you in the area of Sales and Finance, I appreciate your job you’ve done for AL/Marelli NAFTA and that you’re helping me to develop our leadership team here.”

Marcela Brozova
NAFTA Human Resources Manager – Marelli

“I have recently closed an open position, thanks to the job done by Taylor and CLM. The process was done in a very short time frame which was a key point on that search on top of having the right skill, of course. It has been possible thanks to the high level of professionalism, and very good knowledge of the Automotive Central-Eastern Europe market. By a good and detailed questioning, Taylor has fully understood our need and he was able to quickly provide a short-list. Thanks to Taylor and the team, we have the right person in the right place in a short time.”

David Sincholle
Vice President (Operations East) - SNOP - Group FSD

“I’ve had the pleasure to partner with CLM on a number of crucial researches and I couldn’t recommend them more. Their customer focused approach is impressive, together with their flexibility and ability to interpret needs translating them into quick and effective actions to find the perfect fit. Their full understanding of what “business critical” means in the automotive market, their reaction time, care and accountability really make the difference. Again, strongly recommended!”

Francesca Varetto
VP Global Human Resources, EH&S and Communications - Varroc Lighting Systems

“Taylor is a great professional, very dedicated, available and ethical. Always delivers more than requested. I have been working with him to fill highly top complex positions in an extremely heated market and in a short space of time. The answer is always very fast and accurate. Thank you very much Taylor for your professionalism and seriousness.”

Emerson Everaldo
HR Director North America - Sodecia

Taylor is very well connected and is therefore able to provide a wide range of opportunities. He sees the full potential of a candidate, above and beyond the mere facts of the CV. With his expertise in Supply Chain Management and Digitilization he proved to be the “Go-To-Guy'' for a future oriented placement. He has been a reliable partner through the full recruitment and strives to achieve the best possible match in between candidate and company.”

Christoph Rochelmeyer
Director Supply Chain Management - Magna Powertrain

“I have been a client of Callum’s for the past 5 years. He is one of the most reliable, talented and results oriented Executive Search professionals. He is consistently finding top quality candidates and he has the ability to understand the "soft side" and make sure the individuals are a great match with the company culture and values. I always appreciate his speed, reactivity and high energy level. There is no doubt in my mind that he truly cares about my organization’s success. Thank you Callum for your support in helping me always build the Best Team!”

Stephane Vedie
President & CEO - Varroc Lighting Systems

“A few months ago I was contacted by Taylor regarding a position that I will be starting on Monday. Based on the very positive experience I had throughout this search, I would like to thank Taylor and also to provide a brief recommendation for the great support he provided throughout the entire process. He had an extremely professional approach, very transparent and helpful with any information requests or questions that I had – and for the thorough investigation of both sides to ensure that there would be a very good match – not only in terms of the job description and skillset, but also in terms of the personal approach to leadership and business. He and his team seamlessly organized meetings – both online and face to face - with several representatives from the company, even with the additional complications given by having the decision-makers across the ocean, in the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak, and he was continuously in touch and readily available throughout the entire process. It went very well indeed”

Arthur Wicker
Vice President & Managing Director Europe - HDT Automotive Solutions

"Working with Jack and the CLM team was a real pleasure. Jack was very helpful during the whole interview process and was always well prepared. At the time I was looking for a new role, I was interfacing with other companies personally, without a recruitment professional. The difference in quality of conversations and level of discussion was really night and day, compared to the interviewing I was doing on my own. Jack was able to help me secure an interview time with the CEO which was critical. Ultimately, Jack and the CLM team aided my placement at a very exciting, international role. I would work with Jack again and highly recommend working with CLM for any recruitment needs."

Frank Bertini
Senior Manager - HESAI Technologies

“I have worked with Jack on several occasions, both as a hiring manager, and most recently when I decided to make a career change myself. Jack and his team at CLM are well connected within the global Automotive space, excellent at matching the experience of candidates with the requirements of the role, and aggressive in their follow through and communication. Jack's preparation and coaching prior to interviews left me very well prepared, and his recruiting experience and advice was invaluable when deciding amongst multiple offers. I highly recommend Jack, Callum O'Brien, and the team at CLM for your search needs, and will continue to partner with them moving forward for my talent needs.”

Gregory Papp
Director Sales & Marketing - Marelli

“Taylor is a dedicated manager who looks for the best solution for staffing management functions in the automotive. He is very supportive and understands the customer needs and matches the ideal candidate. I would recommend Taylor without any hesitation.”
