“Christine is a real professional at her craft. She gets right to work and gets the job done. Creative targets. Insightful assessments. Very thorough, communicative and organized to make the process easy for everyone involved. We hired 5 A-players in less than a month. A huge success.”

Doug Donovan, CEO/Co-Founder at Interplay Learning

“Christine helped Azuga fill a critical Head of Product role. What stood out was how quickly she was able to develop a deep understanding of the industry, the Azuga culture and how the role would impact the business. She presented an all-star panel of highly qualified candidates expeditiously, guided the search with a sustained cadence, and worked collaboratively with me to achieve a successful result. I wouldn’t hesitate to call her again for critical, time sensitive searches.”

Michael Osborne, CEO & President at SmarterHQ

“Christine has been incredibly helpful in our search for top talent to join our fast-growing team. Not only does she bring top candidates to review for several open positions, it’s like she’s part of the team. She gets to know your business intimately to ensure she’s finding people who will be the best fit for your org. We’ve had Christine run several searches for a variety of positions, and every search we have several highly qualified candidates to consider bringing on board. Highly recommend!”

Kara Holthaus, VP Client Services at SmarterHQ

“Christine was invaluable in helping us find a senior marketing leader for Vyopta. She managed a very tight process, was incredibly responsive to me and the team, and her ability to find qualified candidates was very impressive. Most of all I valued her counsel and guidance as we worked together to find the best person for our team. I strongly recommend Christine for anyone looking for help finding marketing talent.”

Ivan Montoya

Ivan Montoya, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Vyopta

“I’ve been in the tech industry in Austin for over 30 years and I’ve hired hundreds of people. Back in the day, I used to be the one running through the resumes and doing initial cold calls to prospects to determine who we should bring in for next steps. When I first worked for a company that had an internal recruiter, it got better, but not by much. A lot of the internal recruiters I worked with really had no knowledge of tech to determine who was a good fit or not.

I recently worked with Christine for the first time and all I can say is wow. I have never had a more seamless hiring experience in my career. Christine is amazing at understanding the job profile and finding candidates that best match that profile. I didn’t look at one resume that wasn’t qualified for the positions we hired. Next, she’s great at doing the primary interview looking for communication skills and culture fit. Finally, she owns the whole process, driving the conversations, keeping candidates engaged, and driving out the final offer.

I look forward to working with her more as we grow.”

Chris Chauvin, Vice President of Engineering at SmarterHQ

“Christine, you’re a super-star. Best recruiter we’ve ever met, and we’ll always be grateful.”

Andy Sernovitz, CEO of GasPedal &, Author of “Word of Mouth Marketing: How Smart Companies Get People Talking”

“Christine and her group, Austin Search Partners, is first class in customer satisfaction and goes well beyond the call to get great candidates sourced and placed in a timely manner. She is an excellent communicator and provides the level of detail necessary to remain aligned in our recruiting efforts. I would recommend her services every day of the week.”

“I have had the opportunity to work with Christine on two different occasions. She is very focused, energetic, and all about getting the job done quickly and effectively. She works to understand the right profile we are looking for and then goes after the very best and delivers them! She does a great job and does not disappoint. Getting the right people on board in a timely manner is very important to our business and she does a outstanding job.”

Barry Clark

Barry Clark, EVP Sales & Marketing at SmarterHQ

“Christine is an incredibly high-energy, super smart recruiter who knows how to deliver exceptional candidates.

When she first was hired at SmarterHQ, she worked with me immediately to hire a data scientist. What I appreciated so much about Christine’s approach is that she dove into understanding what I wanted and needed, beyond what I was able to articulate by doing her research and asking great questions. She managed the entire process professionally and efficiently, all the way to our successful hire.

Next hire? No problem. It will be easy.”

Dean Abbott

“After many many years in this business, I can still definitively say
that Christine is one of the best recruiters I know. She works with
the highest level of professionalism, speed and care. In her
research, she leaves no stone unturned. In her recruiting, she is
relentless until the job is done. She is top of my ‘go-to’ list!”

“I’ve never worked with a recruiter better than Christine. She is literally one of the smartest people I’ve ever worked with, and understood and acted on my needs as a hiring manager. Christine’s attention to detail is bar none and because of her I was able to hire my ‘dream team’. I’ve worked with many recruiters in my day and she is the absolute best when it comes to hiring top performers. The entire process of working with Christine’s hiring searches were flawless from initial communication to negotiation. She is the best, period. I hope to work with her again in the future.”

Lindsey Boggs

Lindsey Boggs, Keynote Speaker & Published Writer | Sales Director at Medallia

“Christine is among the most prolific recruiters I have ever met. She’s a natural networker and works at the speed of light. I’ve never seen a recruiter penetrate a new market so quickly. She has a good eye for talent and is undaunted by the complexities or nuances of a search. Christine is a superb choice when the uniqueness of the search calls for deep and broad market penetration, or fast time-to-market.”

Richard Lear

“I really enjoyed working with Christine at Austin Search Partners. Her process, persistence, and energy are like no other recruiter we’ve used.”

Kevin Neuse, VP Corporate Development at GasPedal

“Christine is one of the most efficient, thorough and proactive recruiters I’ve had the pleasure of working with during my professional career. Her raw instinct and ability to attract the most talented people in our industry is second to none. Christine’s passion for her job and commitment to the people she works with is always on display. I’m lucky to have the opportunity to work with such a well-rounded, optimistic and hardworking recruiter!”

Taylor Ring

Taylor Ring, Senior Director, Services Consulting at Torchlite Marketing

“Christine is highly competent and accommodating from the initiation of the search until the position is filled. My company is constantly innovating, which means that new employees have to be capable of learning skills that are not only new to them but new to the market altogether. Christine is excellent at targeting candidates whose technical and professional skills could provide a foundation on which I can build, and whose personalities are well-suited to working in a fast-paced environment where learning on the job is an expectation. What really sets Christine apart is her willingness to listen to the qualities I need for my team and to work with me to find someone who is both qualified and a good fit. She’s been incredibly responsive to any inquires or requests that I’ve had, and provides a simple yet complete process for finding, interviewing, and hiring the right talent. I can’t recommend her enough.”
