“With Stacy’s help, I not only found a new role in industry, but thanks to her diligent work to create a good fit, I found a new and incredibly fulfilling career path that I had never imagined, that leverages my skills and passions in a way I hadn’t realized possible. I thank Stacy tremendously for opening my eyes to new possibilities and sending me on a path that has brought me the challenging and engaging work that I enjoy.”

In an industry that attracts those who hide behind a fragile patina of hubris and bravado, it’s rare to find the real deal. Stacy Pursell is a genuine bona fide top producer who is also one of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever known. I have met literally thousands of recruiters in my role as a coach and consultant/trainer to those in the industry. Stacy Pursell is one of the most impressive, and one who has earned not just my respect, but also my admiration. It’s rare to find someone with a clearly defined value system who is also adept at the nuance and achievement skills required to function as a high performing executive search consultant. It’s no surprise that she is one of the top billing recruiters in the industry. I highly recommend Stacy and her search work.

Stacy has presented several great candidates for open positions within my company. She helped me get my position with *******. I have had experience from both sides with Stacy’s performance, as a candidate, and as a hiring manager. She’s very open, and is familiar with the attributes we are looking for with each position, and presents only those candidates that have the qualities and skills needed. She’s realistic about each applicant and doesn’t gloss over issues. I’m very comfortable working with Stacy.

 Stacy worked with me to find a new position in the animal health industry. She was extremely professional and personable, and I enjoyed working with her very much. She helped me find a position that was very different from anything that I had done before, but yet still fit my skill set and interests. She worked with me to make sure that the position I accepted was the right choice for me, and helped me to get a great salary and benefits package. I would use her again without a doubt.

Stacy recruited me to join Pfizer Animal Health, now Zoetis. She was exceedingly easy to work with and answered my questions diligently. I would highly recommend her for recruiting in the animal genetics and health arena.

Stacy did an excellent job helping me to find and apply for my current position. She was very organized and prompt and provided me with many useful tips on interviewing. I don’t think I would have gotten this job without her.

Stacy is unique among the recruiters with whom I have worked. She successfully holds both the interest of the company and that of the candidate in her mind at all times. The result is the right candidate for the right job. Even more important, Stacy is extremely professional and passionate about her work. She is always striving to serve her client in the most effective manner possible. Stacy is conscientious about her work and is very protective of the confidences entrusted to her. Stacy is hard working. Many times I have had discussions with her at night or on weekends as my travel schedule prevented calls during regular business hours. Each time, she handled the conversation in a patient manner with a full discussion of the topic. I heartily recommend Stacy as a recruiter on behalf of a company or as an advocate for a job seeker. You will find her unsurpassed in the veterinary industry.

Stacy has an intimate knowledge of the animal health industry and is well connected in all areas. She provides candidates with the requisite talent and qualifications and works well within company hiring guidelines. I certainly recommend her highly.

Stacy is not the average recruiter. Her dedication in making sure that everything goes well during all steps of the process, even months after the person is on the new job, is amazing. She communicates often with the parties involved, provides relevant information, and make sure every step of the process is smooth and efficient. I am planning to use her services whenever I need to recruit good animal health professionals.

Stacy Pursell is by far the most professional, tech savvy, polished, enthusiastic and connected recruiter-matchmaker within the animal healthcare industry. Her networking/relationship management skills are second-to-none and she genuinely cares about her clients. Pursell is a hard working, persistent and highly skilled professional sales closer. Stacy sells HOPE, and she does is with a vibrant, positive attitude! She is committed to ongoing excellence, and if-and-when I need to hire people, I will give her a call immediately!

Stacy is a highly skilled and accomplished recruiter. Stacy is well connected and has worked with both the largest companies to small start ups. Stacy is easy to work with and maintains the highest standards of professionalism as well as confidentiality.

I’ve known Stacy since I began in veterinary industry and her reputation is stellar. I trust her implicitly and know that she is 100% discreet and ethical. I’ve never had to use her services personally, however if I needed a job, she’s the first one I’d call. I’ve seen many friends and colleagues get great jobs because of her, and I know the companies where they work are equally happy with the placements . Stacy is definitely someone on my speed dial!!

Stacy is well connected and delivers. She listens to specific needs for a position and is successful in meeting those needs.

Stacy has provided well-qualified candidate pools for a variety of hard-to-fill positions for us at Schering-Plough Animal Health. She has a great understanding of the Animal Health business, and [obviously] has a great reputation among the candidates in that industry. Stacy has a unique blend of “Hunter” instincts and Account Management capabilities. Stacy has outstanding skills in both interacting with Candidates & Hiring Manager and [most importantly!] with her in-house Corporate Recruiting partner. I would strongly recommend that candidates and companies from the Animal Health industry and allied industries get to know Stacy Pursell!

Stacy is one of those people who always brightens your day! She is undoubtedly one of the most optimistic people I know as well as a talented communicator and relationship builder. While Director of Recruitment at Pet’s Choice I worked closely with Stacy and found her to be a responsive, client-focused service provider. She’s trustworthy, professional, and always follows through on her commitments.

Stacy is a true professional and an extremely talented recruiter. She is the go to person for the Veterinary world when it comes to recruiting. I have worked with and known Stacy for over 12 years at both MRI and at the Pursell Group. Stacy truly cares about her clients and candidates and that goes a long way in the recruiting process for all parties concerned. If you need any level of talent in the veterinary world Stacy is the person you want on your side to bring the search to a successful close.

Stacy has an excellent network within the industry and is extremely responsive to customer needs.

Stacy Pursell was recommended to me by another recruiter. I was told that she was “the person” in veterinary recruiting. This statement couldn’t have been more correct. Stacy is very efficient and professional. She takes the time to find out exactly what you are looking for and keeps you informed on every move she makes on your behalf. Her website, The Pursell Group, is very informative – offering helpful tips for telephone interviews, face to face interviews, available openings, etc. She makes it a point to contact the veterinarian that she is representing and the potential employer before and after the interview for feedback.
I have been very pleased with the help that Stacy has provided me and would recommend her to any veterinarian interested in changing their circumstances – whether it be in private practice or industry.
