Lance and his team have done a great job placing highly qualified candidates with our company. They are able to network beyond our own company’s capabilities to hire top notch talent.  

To find a recruiter who cares about your business just as much as theirs, and is solely in the landscape industry, is hard to find here on the west coast.

We’ll continue to use CLS for many years to come.

It’s my absolute pleasure to recommend Christine Kratcoski and her Management Recruitment firm.

Christine and I have known each other professionally for a number of years and we have worked closely on several projects including my personal placement.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with Christine and her firm and have come to know her as a truly valuable asset in our industry. She is honest, dependable and incredibly hard-working. Beyond that, Christine is an impressive listener who is always focused on the details that are important to you as a candidate and as an employer.

Her knowledge of the “Green Industry” and expertise in matching the right candidate with the right opportunity was a defining element in my personal selection to utilize her services.

Along with her undeniable talent, Christine has always been an absolute joy to work with. Christine is a true professional, and always manages to foster positive discussions and bring the best candidates to the table.

Without a doubt, I confidently recommend Christine Kratcoski and her Management Recruitment firm.

Please feel free to contact me should you like to discuss the experience further. I’d be happy to expand on my recommendation.

I have had the pleasure of working with Christine for over the past 20 years plus.

Christine has been my “go to” placement agency/ recruiting partner and has made some impactful placements for our team while I was at ValleyCrest Companies.

Christine continues to work with us at the Harvest Group where she makes strategic placements with many of our members on a regular basis.

She is well versed in the landscape industry and truly understands what our industry needs in a qualified candidate.

She has become what I would call a “true partner” in this vital part of the business.

I would highly recommend Christine for your recruiting needs and to become your partner as well.

Any expectations I had were quickly surpassed. I came to realize I had a very talented advocate working and looking out for my best interest.

Having Christine Kratcoski acting on your behalf is the best career advice I can offer anyone.
