“"RPI has helped us at the most appropriate time when our company needed to enhance our technical management team. They did a global search, led by Paul Clayson. Their network and research team is extensive that they have provided us with a CTO in two months and they have delivered to us multiple executives including a Chief Procurement Officer, SVP & Head PMO, SVP Network Operations, SVP Network Build, VP Network Optimisation and VP Contract Management. The after sales service that they provide is highly personalised. They keep in touch with their successful placements and make sure that they are adjusting effectively into their new role and environment. I appreciate the partnership & support that they provide."”
