"My experience with Cowan International has been as a candidate in a few of their international searches. My many dealings with both Jane and Edda have consistently been timely, courteous and professional. They have good mandates, with good corporations in areas and industries where Cowan has sound expertise. I was always provided with a clear picture of the search, the profile of their client, the industry, the location and the ideal candidate sought. Inherent difficulties with timing, the nature of their mandate or my candidacy as such were explained frankly and without the posturing that is too often common. Interviews were thorough, challenging and rigorous to the credit of their client. References were actually called and my candidacy was discussed with them intelligently. Their feedback -good or bad- was timely, to the point and frank, such a rare occurrence with too many executive search firms. I would not hesitate to recommend Cowan for consideration, including, at the first opportunity, to my own organization."
