What Clients are Saying

Since its inception, IMPACT Payments Recruiting has placed more than 3,400 professionals across the globe. Our clients span from start-ups just receiving seed funding to Fortune 100 organizations. Not only are we able to find the right person the first time, but our retention rate currently exceeds 94%. But don’t just take our word for it – listen to what our clients have to say…

We needed to hire some cornerstone employees for real-time payments to start our US operations. The IMPACT team quickly found and presented a number of qualified candidates and led me to two rock solid hires that were just what I required and good cultural fits. We could not have achieved quicker and better results without the IMPACT team’s industry knowledge, contacts, and recruiting expertise.

I highly recommend IMPACT from both the standpoint of being placed by them, as well as a working for a company that has utilized the IMPACT team. Professional, excellent monitoring of the placement and good follow-up (without being overbearing). I will definitely use IMPACT in the future.

The team at IMPACT Payments Recruiting has worked with us on a number of hires that have been critical to our firm’s explosive growth over this past year. From Vice Presidents to senior level Partner Sales Executives their team brought payment space expertise, multiple qualified and engaged candidates, and human resource expertise to every hire we sourced through them. The surprising value add was not only the strong candidates but that they enabled us to hone our own internal job requirements, expectations and job descriptions.
