"During my tenure at KCI I worked with Kip and The Denson Group on numerous search assignments within the Medical Device industry. On each of the assignments Kip produced well qualified candidates many of whom were hired by KCI. Her success was is no doubt due to her deep knowledge of the industry, well established relationships with a large number of candidates and a solid understanding of the hiring process from both the candidate and employer perspective. In addition, I found her a pleasure to work with and a true professional with the highest integrity. I recommend her without hesitation to any employer seeking third party assistance with searches in the medical device or related industries."

I have worked with The Denson Group over the past four years in placing sales and engineering professionals. We have utilized his services to search for and eventually hire five key employees with very detailed and specific job descriptions. These positions have typically been hard to fill in the past due to the combination of the extremely specific technical and sales skill required. They have done a wonderful job in screening all potential candidates before presenting them to me for review. I can honestly say that all the candidates presented met most of the outlined conditions and were qualified enough to take to the next level.
The Denson Group definitely has a grasp for the entire medical industry. They work extremely hard in not only the search of candidates, but on the logistics after the search is complete (i.e. helping with offer letter logistics, reference checks, relocation possibilities, etc.) I highly recommend their services for anyone in search of sales and technical individuals in the medical device arena.
Bruce A. Nichols, Vice President, Sales - Interventional Products
"As the fastest growing cochlear implant manufacturer in the world, we are constantly searching for individuals who will play a key role in our plans for the future. The Denson Group has been instrumental in our successful pursuit of these strong leaders."

Advanced Bionics Corporation
"It is my pleasure to give a recommendation for The Denson Group. I have used the services of this company for approximately 2 years. During that time, I have received more qualified applicants and made more successful job fills through The Denson Group than all of our other recruiters combined. The Denson Group is a pleasure to work with. They are a class act. They have great knowledge about the industry and the types of positions we seek to fill. They have a keen insight into the types of applicants that can succeed with our company. They keep their knowledge up to date and form excellent relationships with the hiring managers. Again, it is my pleasure to recommend The Denson Group."
Dawn Hitt-Wilken, H.R. Manager - Sulzer Orthopedics (Acquired by Zimmer)
"The Denson Group are outstanding recruiters. They are very knowledgeable in their field and instill trust in both their client companies and their client customers. They have demonstrated abilities in partnering with an organization and their attention to detail is unsurpassed. The Denson Group exemplify professionalism and ethics to a degree seldom seen in this industry. In an industry where many take the low road trying to earn a quick buck, The Denson Group stand in stark contrast by taking the high road seeking a real "fit" for both the company and the candidate."
David Jayne, H.R. Manager
"The Denson Group has filled key positions within our organization by listening to our employment needs, in-depth screening and thorough reference checking of potential candidates.
