Derrick Suehs EdD

Assistant Vice President, Quality and Outcome Management

I’m very pleased that I made the call to M3 Partnership & Placement. There was good chemistry. They seemed very interested in me, and you want someone on your side to help. I felt that M3 would represent me. With the larger companies I had worked with, I became a number, whereas with M3 the relationship is on a much more personal level.

If other people in a similar situation as mine asked me about the process and what placement service I went through, I would tell them there were several – but ultimately I chose the one that was on my side. M3 is interested in you, they help coach you, and they have discipline and compassion. I was very happy with the decision I made, and they helped prepare me for my new position. They helped me understand what the organization I had joined was like, and what they were looking for. Afterward, they followed up
with me to see how everything was going.

I just can’t emphasize the emotional commitment they have to you. For them, it isn’t just a business transaction. The feeling of being cared for and helped during that time of uncertainty was, for me, very important. If I ever found myself in need of employment, they’d be the first organization I’d call. And, I’m sure they’d say, “We’re so glad you called. We’re here for you.” They really work for you.

The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties, Inc.

We chose M3 Placement & Partnership upon the recommendation of some of our board members who had worked with Mary Malone previously, and because they are local. We are the Community Foundation, so we try to do everything as locally as we can, when we can. Everything a national search company would have been able to afford us, she was able to address and access.

Mary Malone and her team were very thorough. They stayed in touch, and walked us through the process from start to finish. They didn’t overwhelm us with checkpoints, but kept in touch with us the right amount to keep us engaged and informed. It was a very fluid process.

You have to have a lot of trust in the search firm you choose to screen candidates. M3 was careful and
thoughtful, and very timely in not just their response but also in information sharing. They treat people
well and are respectful. The personal touch M3 provided was important to us.

Amy Dewan

Director of Human Resources
Resource Center for Independent Living (RCIL)

M3 has assisted RCIL with the recruitment of our COO and Director of Training, and is currently helping to recruit a Director of Quality and Compliance. Mary Malone and Paige have also conducted informative supervisor workshops for RCIL with regards to effective interview practices.

M3 has made the recruitment process a pleasant experience for RCIL. They take the pressure away from our agency. Their resources allow them to match the ideal candidates with our roles. Mary Malone and her team go above and beyond in providing superior customer service to their clients and applicants. From the signing of the contract to the multiple follow-ups with placed individuals and clients, their sincere and first-class services make them unique.

We would highly recommend M3 because beyond having excellent qualifications and performance in placement and consulting, they genuinely care about the people they work with. The M3 team takes the time to listen to the needs of their clients to ensure a full understanding of what is important and to meet their clients’ goals.

Cathy Cucharale

Chief Operating Officer and Chief Compliance Officer
M. Griffith Investment Services, Inc.

Our firm has worked with M3 Placement & Partnership for many years. Their staff is very professional and attentive to our needs. We have found that they take the time to learn about the position we are trying to fill and recommend to us only the candidates that meet our qualifications.

I have worked with all of the team members of M3. They are always very professional and responsive to our needs. M3 takes the time, up front, to learn about your company, your culture, and your open position to make sure they ‘know’ you so that they can pair you with the right candidate. This saves me time with interviewing so that I am not wasting time with candidates that are just not the right fit.

With M3’s help, we have had great success with finding quality candidates to join our team
