Client Testimonials

“I have had the pleasure of utilizing Ron and his firm though out my 26 years in Information Technology in the DFW area. I have employed both full time employees and contractors from Ron. The FTEs that were hired through Ron at my current employer are still with us after ten years. I think you find that Ron and his team are very ethical and provide you with valuable resources in an almost immediate timeframe due to his vast knowledge and network of professionals in our Metroplex. Ron takes great pride in understanding your needs and ensuring the match is rewarding for both parties.”
Jim H. Davis III, Senior Vice President Global Networks, Fidelity Investments


“Over my IT career, I have worked with many executive recruiting firms. However, yours stands out as one of the finest. Your ability to respond to Levi’s demanding staffing requirements, by far, out performs other firms that I have engaged. Another attribute is the quality and in-depth experience your candidates have. Their technical ability and IT knowledge is far superior to the candidates submitted by other recruiting firms. I also appreciate your price competitiveness and ongoing support of the candidates that you deliver. Thank you for making this part of a difficult process simple.”
Ron Koehler, previously Director: Global Server/Storage Technologies, Levi Strauss & Company

He always finds a number of qualified candidates in a timely manner. I’m confident that every candidate that Ron presents to me is qualified, sincere and understands the position. They have all passed his very thorough screening prior to him ever presenting them to me. When my employment situation put me on the market, Ron represented me to some of the finest employers in the D/FW area. He is highly respected by these companies due to his professional ethics, excellent results and superior knowledge of these clients and their business.

He was the first recruiter that I had ever personally used, and is the only one that I will ever use.

I have hired many of Ron’s candidates and all of them have turned out to be excellent employees. Furthermore I have found out that all of them have the same respect and appreciation for Ron as I do. I highly recommend usage of his services and establishing a long term relationship with him.”
Elliot Weitzman, previously SVP Technology at MBNA


“I’ve used Performance Recruiters for over 15 years and have always relied on the quality of candidates presented by them. Performance knows the market and has a proven track record of ethics and professionalism which keeps me going back to them when my requisitions open up. I’ve used other recruiting firms but none have delivered with the reliability and quality like Performance.”
Tony Ulichnie, previously VP at Fidelity Investments


“Ron Ritchey is the most professional and ethical person that I worked with in this field. In all my experiences with him, he presented clear understanding of my recruiting needs and provided me the right candidates with requested skill sets. During the process he continued to follow up with me to make sure all goes by my expectation. I really enjoyed with him and will continue to work him for my future recruiting needs. I have been recommending Ron to others when I see the opportunity. Ron, I much appreciated all your work helping me finding the strong people for my team. ”
Fereshteh Abadi, Database Manager, Rent-A-Center, Inc.


“Ron Ritchey of Performance Recruiters is one of the most knowledgeable IT recruiters that I’ve dealt with. He’s not only knowledgeable of the IT job market in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, but he understands the IT profession. I’ve found this to be absolutely invaluable because I didn’t have to explain every facet of what I do and what my skill sets are, like so many recruiters who are just sales reps selling the product of the month. In addition this means that his clients will have a greater respect for him as well. Also, Ron proved that he was like a bulldog with a bone in working with his client on my behalf. He kept me up to date on the status of the process and always kept me in the loop. There’s no doubt that if I’m in the job market again I definitely want Ron Ritchey working for me!”
Chuck Walton, Senior Database Architect, Rent-A-Center, Inc.

“I have known Ron for several years and when he was presented with an opportunity that he felt would be a good fit for me; he called me to discuss the position. We met in person and Ron was very knowledgeable about the company and the duties of the job, which gave me the comfort level that I needed in order to pursue a change. He remained engaged throughout my interview process, and provided encouragement and positive feedback through phone calls and email. I believe that Ron’s reputation and experience were instrumental in helping me to get the interview and eventually the job. It was a pleasure to work with someone as committed and sincere as Ron. I would welcome the opportunity to work with him in the future and recommend him highly.”

“I have worked with Ron Ritchey for over 10 years in various recruiting and placement opportunities. From the staffing perspective, he has a network of solid candidates and responds only with well qualified candidates, which match the opportunity. All of the resources that I have hired from Ron always exceeded my expectations. Recently, I partnered with Performance Recruiters in an opportunity for myself. Again, Ron networked directly with the hiring manager. In just a short time, he matched me with a solid employer in the DFW area.”
Larry Pennington, Director, IT Operations, Heartland Payment Systems


“Ron Ritchey at Performance Recruiters found me an employer that fit my requirements. The Employer wanted very specific skills that I have and without his personal knowledge of those skills I wouldn’t have gotten an interview. His relationship with the employer enabled me to get past some of the general questions and get to the job/skills that they wanted to hear about. Considering the hiring process of the company, Ron did a great job working around the obstacles.”
Cory Pitt, San Engineer, XTO Energy


“Ron was very professional and ethical in his approach and he was always ready to answer questions. He kept me informed during every step of the process. He kept the lines of communication between the candidate and the client. I would definitely recommend his services as a recruiter and would not hesitate to work with him in the future.”
Rama Raguraman, Database Analyst, Citi


“To start with – Ron Ritchey is great to work with and he gave me a new leash of life in my career in Dallas. Before moving in to Dallas, I was in Detroit, Michigan, my family and I were so desperate to move down to the southern region because of personal reasons. Ron and I had a discussion for a particular assignment, and he submitted my profile for that position. Through the whole hiring process, he always followed up with the client and updated me with the status. I never felt like I was working with a company in a different state. Ron never behaved like a middle-man company, but treats you like his very own brother. Now, if I any of my friends looking for a job, I first ask them to check with Ron. If you are looking for a change and contacted Ron, I would say you are at the right hands.”
Kannan Seerangan, UNIX Administrator, Aviall Corporation


“I am very happy to share my experience that I had working with Ron because it was great and I feel like I really hit a home run with my new position! From the first meeting that I had with Ron Ritchey he immediately separated himself from others recruiters that I have worked with in the past. Ron understands how IT Infrastructure works and the skills that are necessary at each position which clearly separates him from other recruiters. Ron also provided me with a clear picture of each position that he presented to me. This was the most important point that made the job hunting experience enjoyable working with Ron personally. Any software program can match skill sets, but it is a real art to match job functions to a person’s skill set. Through the entire process Ron communicated all company feedback honestly, timely and made sure that my interest in the company’s position was the fit that I was looking for. My job hunting experience was very positive, and I recommend Performance Recruiters, Inc. to any IT professionals looking for a new position. If I ever need to look for another position Performance Recruiters, Inc. will be the only person that I call.”
David Duncan, Storage Administrator, XTO Energy


“Ron Ritchey made sure he understood my qualifications and the type of position I was looking for before submitting job postings for my review. He took my personal and professional requirements into consideration before submitting my application. He spent time informing me on the company, who would be interviewing me and what to expect. He negotiated my placement and looked after my interests. He followed up with me and with the company throughout the entire process. Ron Ritchey is a true professional.”
Karen Solarte, Oracle Database Analyst, Neiman Marcus


Ron Ritchey is a top-notch recruiter. In working with Ron, I found him to be open, candid, and thorough. His knowledge of the company and position was detailed and he provided me with the insight and knowledge I needed to effectively interview and make decisions. Ron was in constant communication with myself and the company. His follow through was efficient. He represented my interests and the interests of the company in balance for a win-win outcome. I have recommended Ron to several of my colleagues, and I would recommend Ron to anyone seeking a job, or to anyone seeking qualified candidates to fill a position.”
William Farmer, Director, Experian Decision Analytics


“Ron Ritchey is by far the best recruiter I have worked with in my 20 years in the IT industry. He is professional, honest, and is truly interested in finding the correct fit for both the company and the individual. I was very impressed with the manner in which he balanced my personal interests and the interests of his client (now my employer). Finding that balance is a skill that most recruiters have not learned. In my particular job search, he knew the client and their environment very well, and was very knowledgeable about the duties of the position. He stayed in constant communication throughout the process, and was prompt in returning calls and answering any questions that came up. My job search resulted in a successful result, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Hopefully, I won’t need Ron’s services for quite some time, but if I do find myself in that position, the first phone call I make will be to Ron. Whether you are an individual looking for a job, or a company looking to fill a position, I highly recommend that you give Ron the opportunity to assist you. I can guarantee that you will be happy with the service you receive.”
Paul Anderson, EDI Specialist, Transplace


“I’d like to share the experience that I had working with Ron Ritchey as my professional recruiter. During this process, it was as if Ron became a part of my family. We were in constant communication about the job and the expectations of the company that I was placed with. Ron gave me a history of the company and I was impressed with the relationship that he had with them which made me comfortable in making my decision to go there. He was totally honest about the whole process and didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear. He simply stuck with the facts. I have had contact with recruiters before and right off the bat I knew that they didn’t have my best interest in their sights. So when Ron and I talked a few times, I felt comfortable with his personality and trusted him with my career path. I like my new job and I’m satisfied with the services that I obtained from Ron. I would definitely use his services again.”
Charlie Jones, LAN/WAN Engineer, Aviall Corporation

He was not only very versed with the client requirements but also negotiated the best for me with the client. Throughout the whole process he was constantly in touch with me and displayed very high integrity. I was very impressed by Ron’s professional ethics and honest…Overall he acted like a really good friend…I would highly recommend him to all my friends and also be delighted to deal with him again. I wish him all the best!”

Gary Samek, Capacity Planner, Dell Perot Systems Corporation

It seems he has very good relationships with many clients in the Metroplex and has a clear understanding of their positions. He guided and responded at every level at all stages of processing. One should notice his professionalism, creditability during entire process. He always is reachable, available 7 days in week and responded to my calls even after business hours.

I’m extremely satisfied with the approach; services rendered and have no hesitation to recommend him for anyone seeking a position in Dallas Metroplex.”
Sreekumar Siddula, Sr. Application EDI/EAI Engineer, Levi Strauss & Company

Diaz Johnson, DB2 Systems Programmer, Citi


“Ron Ritchey was a total pleasure to work with when I was searching for my career advancing position. He kept in touch daily on the position, even met me near the DFW airport after I flew in for my interview to put a final touch on things He very much represented the opportunity to me in a clear, factual and representative format. Ron managed the client relationship of my potential employer in a very professional, up front and forthright manner, while all the time looking out for my best interests to what I was seeking for my next position. Ron is very credible, represented me in an honest and fair fashion and provided an outstanding service to me.

Robert Sutton, IT Security Architect, Dell Perot Systems Corporation


“I am taking the time to express my gratitude for your expert representation. Beyond just assessment of my skills and experience with respect to current openings, you took the time to accurately weigh their various prevailing corporate cultures, climate, and stability. When a mutual fit had been found, you negotiated on my behalf and managed to secure an excellent total compensation package for me. Six months down the line both the company and the people are exactly as you represented them. I am enjoying the job immensely. After your expert representation of me from the employee perspective, your experience and contacts here in the Metroplex came through for us on the employer side of the table. Integrity, quality, and delivery are clearly your hallmarks. I can (and have) recommend you to my IT peers and business acquaintances without hesitation or reservation.”
Gregory B. King, Certified IBM AIX/HACMP Support Professional, Aviall Corporation


“After dealing with several recruiters, it was truly refreshing to meet and work with Ron. He’s a good example of what integrity and excellent customer service is. He did not treat me like just another number and even when, through some is communication on the part of another company, it did not appear that Ron would be receiving a fee for placing me, he continued to provide assistance and update me regarding the position. I’m impressed with his courtesy and professionalism. I plan to work with Ron again in the future. Thanks again.”
Todd Keith, Security Manager


Ron Ritchey worked very hard in helping me find my job and was integral in placing me in the highest pay scale I have had in my career so far. Communications between me and the hiring company were very prompt and superior. His vast network of people and companies is truly amazing and spans a very long period. I have since recommended his services to several people I have worked with in the past, because doing business with him is second to none.”
Lee Morris, Telecom Engineer, Federal Home Loan Bank


“I was looking for a job after 10 years and was getting frustrated with calls from so many recruiters. All those recruiters want me to say “YES”, so that they can submit my resume “ASAP”! But when I got a call from Ron’s company, it was different. He took his time getting all my details, met me in person, and explained not just the job, but also about job environment. Ron made absolute sure that I have a complete understanding of this job. In short, the whole process; from first phone call to last phone call “You got the JOB!”, Ron showed professionalism, honesty and dedication.”
