Andy was outstanding and amazing. He provided first class service and exceed my expectations. If you ever have the opportunity to work with Andy you can expect: consistent and timely communication, honest feedback, and over all a great experience. I highly recommend Andy because you aren't another individual seeking a job, you are his number one priority to not just find you a "job" but to find the right fit.
HR Business Partner
(recently placed by Maxwell)
I was introduced to Andy in January after starting a search on my own. I was immediately impressed with Andy's knowledge of the industry and available opportunities. Andy took the time to get know my background and what I was looking for in my next role. He was extremely responsive during the interview process and made sure that I was prepared before each interview. Andy balanced my personal and professional needs as well as the those from the prospective employer. With his help, I was able to accept an amazing opportunity that was the perfect next step in my career. I would recommend Andy to any HR professional looking for the right position in a second.
Head of Human Resources
Gracious Home, Inc. (New York)
After 8 great years at a company I loved and had great passion for, I was very skeptical and unsure about exploring the vast job market. In addition I was in the process of a significant move from Dallas to Boston with my family. Fortunately for me I aligned with Andy.
From the start I knew Andy’s commitment was different than what I have been accustom to. Andy made a significant investment in me; taking the time necessary to fully connect with my skills, recognize my interests, learn my values and not only understand my goals but help me build them by encapsulating my experiences.
Throughout the process Andy went out of his way to connect me to fitting organizations and opportunities regardless of whether or not they were his own clients.
Andy knew from the start Cumberland Gulf would be a great fit for me and I am thrilled to say he was absolutely right. I am now 3 months into my new role at an organization I love, in a position that is perfect for me, with challenge and great growth.
Andy was KEY in my achieving this growth opportunity. Andy is positive, honest, driven and professional. I highly recommend Andy to fill the toughest HR roles and find the perfect position you are looking for.
HR Business Partner
The Cumberland Gulf Group, Inc.
I have been running Human Resources and Staffing organizations for the past 20 years and have worked with the largest search firms in the business. I was recently on the other side of the table and needed help as a candidate. Most of my experience as a candidate has been frustrating with a lack of professionalism and follow up from agencies and companies. That is not the case with Andy Liberatos at Maxwell Solutions. He has been by far the best person I have worked with. I can't call him a recruiter because he has been more of a search partner. I could always count on him giving me an honest answer and feedback even if it wasn't what I wanted to hear. He kept me fully informed of the progress on the opportunity he had me engaged on and returned all my calls promptly. As a candidate the uncertainty of any interview process and your candidacy status can be very frustrating, all too often the candidate is left in the dark. With Andy I knew where I stood and he also represented the companies extremely well. I absolutely plan on working with him when I have an opening to fill.
Vice President, Global Human Resources
(formerly of Metratech Corporation)
I have had the opportunity to work with Andy as a candidate several times now. Andy is great to work with on so many levels - he gets to know you and your strengths and interests, he is thorough in evaluating the fit of a potential role and he is meticulous at preparing you for the interview process. He provides useful and thoughtful feedback and keeps you informed every step of the way. In my experience with Andy, he does not "sell" a job, but instead seems to really act as a partner throughout the process - looking to make the best match possible for both the candidate and the employer. I have continued to work with Andy time and time again because of that partnership, and trust that he represents me in the way that I would hope and expect with future employers. In my view, that trust is so important and rare when working with a recruiter, and Andy has proven it to me time and time again.
Amee Desjourdy, VP of Human Resources - Enel North America
known Andy for a number of years and he has always delivered
high caliber HR professionals. He really knows the business
and has been a trusted partner in staffing. I would certainly
recommend him and his firm to any company that has HR staffing
SVP of HR at Inventiv Health
I recently had the pleasure of working with Andy on my personal search and found him to be personable, candid, and insightful. It's clear that he takes pride in carefully matching candidates with employers to find the right "fit" and establishes a rare level of confidence and trust with both parties. I truly enjoyed working with Andy and have since recommended him to several friends and colleagues and plan to call upon him again in the future.

in today, Director of Talent Acquisition for Salient Surgical Technologies,
without Andy's keen ability to match Salient's goals and objectives with my
own skills and competencies.
Don Cummings, President, Aptus Search

company services when the need arises.

HR and Learning, Martha Stewart Living, Inc.
During my first conversation with Andy back in 2002, he told me his overall goal with all his clients was to formulate an on-going professional relationship. Since that initial meeting I can say that is definitely true! I have turned to Andy numerous times over the last 7 years (and initial placement) for filling HR needs in my organization as well as discussing my own career path and objectives. He knows the HR market very well and his opinions and professionalism are highly regarded and very appreciated. I highly recommend Andy as an HR partner and wish Maxwell Solutions all the best!

has a unique ability to balance the needs of his candidates

my career aspirations as well as the things that were most

me with opportunities I felt had been designed just for
Eckelkamp, Dr. of HR for BMC Software, Inc.
Andy is well grounded in all aspects of HR and able to translate that across a broad range of roles, levels and types of business. What makes him stand out is his understanding of the importance of “fit” in a successful placement. He’s well attuned to the style, strengths and interests of each candidate, and the needs, opportunities, and cultures of each client and works hard to make the right match resulting in long-term relationships in both categories. I strongly recommend Andy, and am happy to know he’s re-engaged in the Boston market.

and candidates. He is always professional and a pleasure to
Kathy Breslin, Head of
Andy and I have worked on 3 successful placements at my organization. He reached me through a cold call, so I was very skeptical of working with a new recruiter. Andy quickly won me over with the quality (not quantity) of candidates he presented. His ability to grasp the culture of our organization and the core competencies needed for the roles was spot on. His efficiency and resourcefulness surpassed my expectations. I would gladly work with him again.
Melissa Yeh, Former Head of HR , Altman Vilandrie
have worked with Andy in the past on my own job search for
a senior HR position, and I found him to be an extremely
dedicated and results-oriented professional. He has excellent
follow-up skills and maintains regular communications with
his clients to insure that expectations are being met by
all his clients. I enjoyed our interactions, and would welcome
the opportunity to again work with him as either a candidate
or hiring manager.

It was a true pleasure to work with Andy. I was referred to him as a passive candidate and found him to be an extremely dedicated and results-oriented professional. His excellent follow-up and communications skills made the process seamless. I would welcome the chance to use his services to build my team in my new role should the need arise.
Mag Goossens, VP of Recruiting for Viacom, Inc.

Steve Thomas, Sr. HR Business Partner, Dimension Data
I am pleased to extend and share my experience in using Maxwell Solutions maxellsolutionshr.com as one of our recruitment resources. We were looking for and needed a dynamic individual lead and drive change from the Head of Human Resources position; and elected to use a firm that is dedicated to the placement of human resource professionals. Andy Liberatos listened and then identified multiple excellent candidates. They were responsive, professional and worked with our organization to facilitate the selection process. The total level of services provided were excellent and comprehensive which allowed us to expedite the selection process.
– CIRTEC Medical Systems, Barry Smith, former President & CEO.
I have known Andy for over 10 years -- first as a candidate and then as a client. He placed me at a top tier private equity firm and provided guidance and clear commumication throughout every step of the process. This role was by far the best career experience for me following a long stint at Goldman Sachs. After dealing with many Wall Street search firms over the years, I now peg Andy as "THE" go-to person for a search. He is somone you want on your team and in working with him he simply "gets it". He has the recruiting instinct and saviness to pull together a strong match. Andy is an excellent communicator -- he listens and consistentely provides thoughtful feedback. He is honest, responsive and so very credible with his business. He has always delivered top quality candidates and does not just shuffle around resumes nor does he come across as a salesperson trying to close the deal. Andy understands the relationship component of this business and his client list speaks for itself -- he has fine-tuned his relationships across the market and his name is highly regarded. Andy is also on top of industry best practices and keeps a strong pulse on what is happening in the market.
Christina Coughlin, President, Coughlin & Associates
Andy is the first person I call when an HR search is on the horizon. I trust his opinion and he knows the competitive landscape. He runs an outstanding process and becomes a true extension of our Recruiting Team. I highly recommend Andy & Maxwell Solutions. – Chris Hanson, VP of HR for Epsilon, Inc.
In an industry like executive search, its rare to find a true partner that understands your business and has a high level of integrity - that's Andy Liberatos and Maxwell Solutions. To bring it to a very basic level - recruiting and executive search is all about cost effective results. When you get a set of profiles from Andy, you know they have been screened and selected precisely based on your technical requirements. But what really makes Andy's services extra special is that he has a deep understanding of the culture requirements of the position, because he has built a relationship with you and your company. For me this is most important.
My experience with working with Andy at FreshDirect, Zeta Interactive and now at Big Fuel has been extremely successful and I have no doubt that I will continue to use Andy in the future. He is and will always be an invaluable part of my executive search strategy.
Anthony L. Onesto, Chief Talent Officer, Razorfish
I met Andy 10 years ago when he helped fill my HR Director position at a medical communications company in Boston. I cannot say enough about his level of professionalism, diligence, knowledge of the field and relationship building skills. Andy takes the time to truly understand the position you are looking to fill as well the company culture. He asks the right questions and approaches the search in a true partnership fashion. I value his opinion and know he will always go the extra mile to successfully complete a search. As an HR Executive with 20+ years of experience, Andy is one of the few people I would call if I was searching for an HR opportunity or had an HR position to fill.

I have worked with Andy over the years both on the candidate side and client side and time again have found myself impressed by him. At a time when customer service, follow up and responsiveness have gone out the window, Andy has taken it to a new level of exceptional service. Andy has always, truly always, responds to me within a few hours if not sooner. This shows Andy’s dedication, commitment, and integrity to his work and the people he works with. I believe Andy cares about his candidates and his clients with equal passion to deliver excellence. Andy is honest and thorough in his feedback but in a way that is highly receptive, respected and useful. A true business partner! The caliber of candidates he works with are innovative, talented professionals in the HR craft. Andy is an expert of assessment, delivery and subsequent follow up.
