GM Europe - The Athlete’s Foot
“The approach of John was very professional. He led a very structured and well-challenging process, which allowed myself to get a clear understanding and feeling of the opportunity from all aspects and view points. John is very available when needed, completely reliable as per any agreement or appointment and pleasantly fast in response to anything that comes up. I experience him as a real business partner, that is valuing all stakeholders in the process.
Next to all the serious and professional topics we had on the table, the humour and fun was always a great part of it. Recommended? Clearly 'yes'.”
HRD - Patagonia
"I started working with John over a year ago, retaining his executive search services for some of our key senior hires for Patagonia Europe; which he delivered on with great success. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with him. He is a true professional; knowledgeable and highly ethical. His knowledge of our industry, approach to the market and focus on customer service is faultless. John is committed to finding you the right person, he is also a great sounding board on all things HR. What I like about working with John is his flexibility, practical approach to conducting a search and his engaging style in dealing with all levels of stakeholders.
I would highly recommend John and his team at Fusion to any HRD within the outdoors/sportswear industry looking for a truly professional, customer services oriented, experienced search firm."

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Grishma as a candidate looking for my current position. I’ve been impressed by her professionalism and her wealth of contacts in the apparel and retail industry. I appreciate her dedication in making sure that everything goes well during all steps of the process, even months after I was on the new job. Grishma communicates often with the parties involved, provides relevant information, and make sure every step of the process is smooth and efficient. She’s trustworthy, professional, and always follows through on her commitments.”
Global MD - Catherine Deane
“Grishma assisted in my recruitment for the role of Managing Director at Catherine Deane. The whole process from start to finish was extremely well managed not only from the candidate point of view, but as I later learned, also from the client (Catherine's) perspective. Grishma’s qualified insight and knowledge of the sector impresses and instils within the client/candidate a real air of confidence and trust. A much valued source of support in the decision-making process. With Grishma’s highly personable and empathetic nature the combined approach is the perfect mix of professionalism, expertise and open flowing communication ... in other words, recruitment at the highest standard - made pleasurable!”
