  68. 68. “Carmichael Fisher is an extraordinary Executive Search company with the outstanding capability of being able to successfully complete any mandate we’ve given them.  They have an incredibly experienced team of Search Consultants one of which I have worked very closely during the past year It is a contentment to recommend to you my esteemed business partner, Carmichael Fisher in my capacity as Regional HR at SHUAA Capital. Carmichael Fisher have managed our account extremely well and they have proved to have excellent networks and search capabilities at the senior level in the Middle East Region. They are very dedicated and exceptionally skilled in managing their clients and candidates through the various processes.”<br /> <br />Zeina Kanan, Regional HR, SHUAA Capital PSC<br />
  69. 69. “I have worked with Andre Nasr on several retained mandates in which we were looking for senior individuals with very specific skill-set in the field of Operations and IT and these individuals were not easily identifiable in the market.  I have always been impressed by Andre’s professionalism, his energy level and his capability to find a choice of relevant candidates in terms of technical skill-set and most importantly in terms of attitude/personality which would fit perfectly within my organization. “ <br /> <br />Thierry Bardury, COO, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank<br />
  70. 70. “When I came back to Dubai to work this year I met with a number of other search firms regarding the 30 positions I had to recruit.  Carmichael Fisher was the only retainer based search firm I met; the others were contingency; they were focused solely on “getting the order and filling the order” as quickly as possible; they did not conduct reference checks; they in fact for the most part, did not even meet in person with the candidates and they did not conduct a search; they merely took resumes from their database and sent them via email to me.”<br />“Carmichael Fisher did an outstanding search for our legal counsel and completed the assignment within six weeks.  The second search was for our Credit Risk Officer; a difficult search as we had a very particular person in mind but didn’t know where he was or even if was working.  Our consultant was able to locate the gentleman and presented us with two other equally as qualified candidates as well; again in record time. Our next two searches were for Vice President, Operations.  Again we were quite particular; we wanted at least one woman; and we wanted a national; these people had to have in-depth credit card/call centre operations experience and if they had worked for GE Capital, all the <br />better.  Again Carmichael Fisher found some excellent candidates; and we hired an ex-GE capital employee (a woman) and a wonderful national man, with an excellent background in call centre operations.  <br /> <br />In all instances; one as a candidate myself, and three times as a client, Carmichael Fisher has <br />proven to be one of the best firms I’ve used; and in my previous jobs I have worked with Spencer Stuart, Korn Ferry, Caldwell Partners, and other large firms,  so I believe I’m qualified to make this statement.” <br /> <br />Jacueline Hammond – HRD Dubai First International, <br />A Dubai Holdings company.<br />Zeina Kanan, Regional HR, SHUAA Capital PSC<br />
