TYPICAL P&L RESPONSIBILITY
I’ve worked with many executive headhunters over the years – some not so great, and some spectacular ones. Beau Billington and team fall into the latter. After only one meeting reviewing our needs for our very niche, executive role, Beau submitted several qualified candidates that hit the mark in all key areas; in fact, the quality and fit were so spot on, it made my hiring decision that much harder deciding which candidate to select. We ultimately ended up with a fantastic hire who is meeting and exceeding all expectations. Beyond the superior quality and fit of the slate of candidates, Beau was extremely professional, provided superior candidate overviews, and his follow through and responsiveness was top notch – everything you want in an executive headhunter. Highly recommend!
“You level of professionalism, responsiveness, and engagement is far superior to the other firms I am actively engaged with. I rarely have to send you an email to check in and never have to chase you down.”
The quality and candidate flow has been perfect and easy to manage. Far better than anything I have ever received internally, good job.

“We first engaged with The Free Agent about 2 years ago. They have established themselves as trusted advisors to our business and to me personally, often extending beyond talent placement to talking through strategic initiatives. I have interacted with many other firms in the space and The Free Agent is the best, I highly recommend them.
“Working with The Free Agent has been an excellent experience. They take time to understand your business, so they can identify candidates that not only deliver, but also align with your culture and business values. Unlike other firms we’ve worked with, The Free Agent screens and fully vets candidates before recommending them.”
I can’t thank you enough for connecting us with (Name Omitted). He has helped me so much with big picture stuff and blind spots that I have. I am very grateful.
There are plenty of smart people who can get the job done–but The Free Agent finds the ones who make tackling our challenges enjoyable and positive, and everyone is better for it.
“I have worked with Beau for several years now, as both a candidate and a hiring manager, and his dedication and attention to detail and skill set is unmatched. In the recruiting and talent acquisition space you will not find a better partner than Beau.”
“I wanted to let you know, you have done an incredible job staying in contact, staying involved, and helping to drive the discussion and engagement with both the client and me. You are running laps around the competition in the executive search space. “
