Read what people are saying about Classic Executive Recruiting the Boutique Executive Recruitment Specialist active across the consumer, industrial, manufacturing, medical, engineering and construction sectors since 1995.

I first met Graham at Classic Executive back in 2007, when he recruited me to the role of HR Manager at Daikin Australia. He immediately put me at ease, and it was like we were having a friendly conversation, rather than a formal job interview. And one of the big things I liked about Graham was that he was 100% down to earth, and completely honest about the role he was recruiting me for.

Since taking over the HR role, I’ve used Graham’s recruitment services on a number of occasions…and every time he’s been honest, down to earth and has always delivered to us a positive result. I really value how Graham knows how to find and recruit good people at many different levels…from Senior Executives, to HR positions and Sales People.

And unlike some other recruiters I’ve dealt with, Graham never oversells or exaggerates. He tells it like it is, and I really appreciate that.

Graham is also very reasonable and flexible in both his recruitment fees and ‘how’ we use his services. He is a pleasure to deal with, and he’s been a terrific asset to our organization over the past 16 years that I’ve worked with him. With his flexibility and down to earth approach, Graham makes my life a lot easier, whenever I’m hiring people. So if you’re looking for an easy way to hire good people, I can highly recommend using the services of Graham Nielsen at Classic Executive Recruiting.

Mark Ryder

Managing Director, South East Asia, IDEX Corporation

I’ve known Graham since 2005, when I was applying for a position that he had available. After finding out more about me, he explained that he had another role that would be a much better fit for me. I’m delighted to report that the role he recommended I consider was an excellent match for my background and skills.

Over the years since I first met Graham, I’ve used his services to recruit great Technical Sales people in the Chemicals Industry. One thing I really like about Graham is that he has a huge amount of knowledge about this industry,..so he knows exactly the type of people we want to recruit, and what these people will be expected to do. He has a wonderful instinct for recruiting technical sales people who are terrific in terms of knowledge and skills, and who are also a great fit to our business at the same time.

I really like how Graham is very “Old School” in everything he does…he’s very careful, punctual and reliable. He gives good old fashioned real service, quite different to some other consultants who want to rush the recruitment process. So if you’re looking to hire highly skilled technical sales people who will fit nicely into your business and make a significant contribution, I highly recommend you use Graham.
