“I have used the recruitment services of W. Brown Creative Partners (WBCP) several times over a period of years and have enthusiastically referred her to others.  Over my 30 year career in executive positions in health care and health philanthropy, I have had the occasion to use many, many recruitment firms – large and small – and have never experienced the success offered by Wendi.

Wendi embodies a special combination of directness, common sense and efficiency coupled with creative flair that makes her a joy to work with and a great success in life and business. She offers detailed and thorough research and is tireless about ensuring that all details are accomplished with perfection. It takes great skill, intuition and common sense to successfully recruit and place staff in varied kinds of organizations. Because Wendi listens well, is attentive to what each organization needs, very smart and very responsible, I have seen wonderful results.”

“The County of Santa Barbara has worked successfully with W. Brown Creative Partners since 2005 in a variety of capacities, but most frequently to lead high-profile recruitments or those for hard-to-fill positions.  Wendi Brown listens to the needs of her customers, tailors recruitments to best meet those needs, and attracts quality candidates into the process.

In addition, she understands public sector recruiting requirements and tailors creative solutions within those confines.  Throughout each recruitment, Wendi keeps her customers informed and keeps candidates engaged.  Many department heads request Wendi’s services and provide consistently positive feedback about their experience working with her.

We have successfully used WBCP to find excellent candidates for our hard-to-fill and executive management positions. The flexibility, creativity and resourcefulness of WBCP’s staff have helped us find the ideal people to fill these important vacancies.”

“I have been working with Wendi for the past two years as a consultant for human services executives. It is one of my passions and what makes it most rewarding is that it is also a passion with Wendi. She pays attention to both vision and detail – a rare combination in the business.

Her highest compliments come from satisfied customers, many of whom I personally know. They tell me that she is a person of creativity, integrity and innovation and they will use her for a long time. Personally she is my most highly regarded mentor in human resources I expect to enjoy a working relationship with her for the rest of my professional career.”

James Rydingsword, Director at San Benito County Health and Human Service Agency, CA

“I have been hiring and managing people for over 35 years (most of it in high tech in Silicon Valley) and Wendi Brown is by far the best recruiter I have ever worked with!

Wendi took on a huge and extremely difficult recruitment for us with a very limited national pool of qualified applicants. Her results were amazing—she is tenacious, professional, and insightful.”

Wendi Brown is excellent at communicating and listening—she makes sure that she understands all the essential job requirements and company preferences before she brings qualified applicants to us who can both do the job as well as fit within our culture. Her results are amazing.”

Dianne Gee, Human Resources and IT Manager, Dogs for the Deaf, OR

“I have had the pleasure of working with Wendi Brown and the WBCP team on various projects over the past few years. One project that I would highlight in particular was the Spanish translation of an educational curriculum as a component of our awarded grant. After a competitive bid process, Wendi was able to provide that delicate balance of offering a full spectrum of translation services in a very cost effective manner.

The translation process for the curriculum entailed communication between me, as our agency point of contact, and the translation service provided through WBCP. Wendi smoothly facilitated the process to which not only did we meet our production deadline for the project, but stayed well within budget. I highly recommend Wendi Brown for her full spectrum of translation services!”

Cynthia Alvarez, Support Services, First 5 San Mateo County, CA

Wendi’s priority was to find the best candidates for the position and  ensure that application materials were an accurate reflection of the skills and experience that made the candidate a good fit for the organization.
