Nothing is as rare or as valuable than a recruiter who gets your company culture and represents it. Over and over again, Chris brought us high level candidates who were impressed with their interactions with him. "I usually don't respond to recruiters" was something we heard over and over again from the people we interviewed. Candidates came prepared, understood the company culture were trying to build, and were already impressed with us through their interactions with Chris. Chris helped us over and over again fill positions that were open for months. He is personable, professional, flexible and imminently accessible. I could not recommend him more, and consider myself very lucky to have had his help in building my team.

We focus on companies that are trying to make a difference in the world, and we find the people that can help them do it.

At Berkner Group we have four specific area of focus. This allows us to develop a very specific network of candidates and a true understanding of our client industries, all of whom are making the world a better place.


I have worked with Chris on a few talent search projects, and he has always helped us in finding the right people. Chris not only understands the required technical skills of the engineers, but he truly helps in team building. He put a lot of effort into finding the right engineers for our latest project, and I think he did a fabulous job there, in a very short time. I strongly recommend Chris, and will continue working with him on future projects.
