It has been a pleasure to work with Caio as a Consultant in various searches for the company. He delivers a high quality service, and was always able to interpret our needs the right way, achieving excellent results for critical roles. I highlight his great communication towards his client and candidates, speed of response and ability to adapt to different profiles.

Antonio Nielsen. HR Manager, Philip Morris International.

I met Caio for the first time as a candidate when he contacted me for a search. Later on I had the chance to work with him as a client, and he showed an intrinsic ability to understand our needs as clients and speak the same business language. He could deliver in a very "hot" IT market without overlooking our budget restraints.
