Senior VP of Sales
Kristen is wonderful to work with. She is knowledgeable, responsive and hard working. She strives for a "win-win" outcome for all parties and is the ultimate professional. If you're looking at filling Executive leadership roles, Kristen can be counted on to deliver.
As a 30+ year HR professional, I have worked with many recruiting agencies over my career and can honestly say that Debi Apple and her team at Apple and Associates are some of the best to work with. I have personally worked with Debi for the past 9 years and have found her and her team to be very professional and extremely responsive in their job searches with our firm. Apple and Associates differentiates themselves by establishing a personal relationship with their partner companies in order to find “right fit” talent for the position. They not only concentrate on “what” the person brings to the job, but also “how” they will interact and fit into the organization. Additionally, Debi and her team strive to provide quality of candidates versus quantity. You can count on them to pre-screen appropriately and conduct professional references for you in order to help you make effective and efficient decisions. Therefore, I would highly recommend Apple and Associates for any organization that needs a professional recruiting team working on their behalf.

I would like to highly recommend Debi and her network of connections if you are in the market for a new job. She was a joy to work with and has an exceptional rate of success. Most impressive, is her ability to be so personable while maintaining a high level of professionalism. I met her as a recruiter, now we are good friends!

Human Resources Director
It has been my privilege to work with Joan during my tenure at Covidien. She is a true professional who takes the time to get to know the company culture and the details of each position for which she is recruiting. Joan works in a very organized style and never missed a deadline. She is very resourceful and I look forward to working with her again. Joan is a true treasure! Professional, creative, has a positive energy and never gives up! She is the whole package!
It has been a pleasure working with Joan during my most recent job search. From the beginning of the process, it was very clear that Joan's main objective was to insure the best match for me and the hiring organization. She took the time both to understand my career objectives as well as my full background. Her constant communication built a high level of trust, as I was always informed of how the process was progressing and the situation at the client. I would highly recommned Joan to both job seekers and organizations needing to find the right person to fit their needs.

Joan is a person to know in the medical device network. In the words of Malcom Gladwell she is a connector. She is diligent and a person with an acute practical intellect. worth knowing if looking to expand horizons
Debi goes beyond the superficial interactions of a typical recruiter and really strives to understand her client’s motivations and career goals so that she recommends the right job. She also has the industry knowledge and contacts to even be able to direct her clients to companies she does not represent – including companies she knows she would not get reimbursed from. With her knowledge, she provided wonderful information on which companies/positions were or were not desirable. I also interacted with several associates in Apple and Associates and had great experiences with them as well; which reflects upon how Debi has set (and managed to) an exceptional service level. While at the end of my search I had job offers from other recruiters, Debi continued to check on me and took the time to assist with salary negotiations.
I've known Debi for almost 20 years. She and her team have set the standard in recruiting top talent and doing so in a professional and expedient manner supporting the needs of her clients across the country.
