"Consistent, reliable, results. Tom Williams and Martha Smiles of Williams & Company delivered this and more. We trusted them to understand and communicate our unique mission, challenges and opportunities and to find and evaluate top candidates. We partnered with them on several searches and the outcomes were timely and consistently excellent. They found great candidates and helped us make great hires. Our new staff members are a perfect fit for High Point University. They have helped the enrollment team reach unparalleled levels of enrollment growth while enhancing the academic profile of applied and enrolled students. Being a smaller search firm allows Williams & Company to be nimble in their approach to each search and the specific needs of an institution. They are well-connected in the field of enrollment and bring practical, common sense, ethical solutions to an organization’s hiring needs."
