  • Sally Preston, Founder, The Kids Food Company Limited

    I have known Kristina for over 20 years and although we are not in her specialist sector, we have used her skills to find a senior member of my management team on a number of occasions. Kristina showed herself to be adaptable and flexible to new sectors (we operate in Food and Retail). She was resourceful in finding a strong short list of candidates, and all we well briefed before I met them. Her style is purposeful and friendly – she takes time to understand the company culture and role dynamics to avoid sending unsuitable candidates to waste my time. Kristina understood this and was honest about suitability. She screened very effectively. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kristina Lushey irrespective of the sector you work in, as she has proven adaptability and professionalism.
