Galo Rodriguez – President & CEO of The Village For Families and Children
I am happy to recommend Thomas Byrne Associates for any financial and accounting searches. We retained Tom on our CFO search due to his acumen and approach, vast connections, operating reputation and history of success. Over a decade ago, Tom completed our previous CFO search. In that search, we landed a hugely successful professional who won CFO of the Year in our marketplace. Now a new CFO joins our team and Tom made sure of his culture fit, skills inventory, market reputation and ability to advance our CFO function. Tom and his team are a pleasure to work with. They are professional, timely, honest and open in all communications and able to assist at any point along the search cycle. Thank you to Tom Byrne and his team.
Jonathon Dussault – Chief Financial Officer @ Evolution1
I have had the pleasure of working with Tom Byrne and his team of experienced professionals for almost 15 years. It has been a true partnership. I’ve worked with the team throughout my career as a direct hire candidate, a direct hire employer customer, a consumer of temporary placement services, and payroll transfer services. In each case, Tom and his team have exceeded expectations and aligned me and my team with quality professionals. This has been instrumental to building a high-class, extremely talented finance organization poised for growth and success. Tom and his team have earned my respect and will continue to deserve the service opportunities that will come their way as my organization continues to grow.
Steven J Sigal – Chief Financial Officer at Connecticut Health Insurance Exchange d/b/a Access Health CT
I have worked with Tom several times in my career to assist in finding the right candidate for positions in my organization. Each time Tom found a superior candidate for the position whatever the requirements were. He is easy to talk with and have discussions with about qualifications and in every instance he found multiple superior candidates with those qualifications. Tom most recently delivered a top flight Controller for my current organization. Tom is always ready to work with you under any circumstances.
Thurman Justice, CPA – Chief Financial Officer at Senior Whole Health
I’ve worked with Tom for over a decade to fill a wide range of roles from temporary positions to key strategic leadership hires. Tom has consistently demonstrated a superior ability to understand my business and the critical skills and competencies required for candidates to be successful. Tom takes the time to gain a clear understanding of my business and organization to ensure both the client and candidate are appropriately matched. I believe Tom is a unique partner who invests his time, gives candid advice and provides a level of service unmatched in this space.
I also use Tom as a personal advisor whom I trust; I value his perspective and valuable experience. I would strongly recommend Tom. He provides high-quality and focused service that yields the right candidates (not just resume flow). Or if you are looking for a career opportunity Tom has the experience and knowledge of the market to help guide you to your next big challenge.
Robert Hughes – Healthcare Financial Executive
I have known Tom for over twenty years and found him to be one of the most diligent and focused recruiters that I have ever worked with. Tom was an instrumental adviser in the design, formation and launch of CIGNA’s Financial Development Program; a leadership development program for high potential financial talent. He then went on to be the “go to” recruiter for sourcing and recruiting financial talent to CIGNA. More than any other recruiter that I have ever worked with, Tom has been effective at defining his target market and then focusing solely on that niche without getting distracted. His success in placing high potential accounting and financial professionals is unparalleled in the market. It is that focus, coupled with unquestioned integrity that has made Tom such a trusted adviser to me over the years.
Jeff Goddard – COO, Head of Business Operations Meritain Health (an Aetna Company) at Aetna
I’ve worked with Tom for about 15 years (both in hiring support and in my own placement.) Tom is a trusted colleague and adviser who I know I can count on for high quality results. I highly recommend Tom and his team.
