Client Testimonial

I am very satisfied with The Newburgh Group approach to recruiting, really enjoyed how we worked together so well to find the right candidate for us, and even more excited about our results. 

President and CEO – Community Bank, Ohio

Brandon determined our needs and culture, worked to find the right candidate and confirmed the solution was correct. Clearly, he cares about finding a lasting solution for the bank as well as the candidate. I would certainly recommend him and look forward to working with him in the future.

President – Community Bank

When we started our search for a qualified candidate to assist me in our bank’s Credit Administration function, I contacted The Newburgh Group to find a seasoned credit person.

President and CEO – Regional Bank

The Newburgh Group recruited me for consideration and ultimately acceptance as a region president for a regional banking company. I subsequently engaged this firm to recruit key people for several critical positions that I needed filled. They diligently located and recruited quality staff for me. With former bankers included on its staff, this company was able to communicate in banking terms with potential candidates.


The Newburgh Group is a true professional organization and does not leave details to chance. They have excellent follow-up and only present me with candidates that have been thoroughly vetted. Their knowledge of our industry separates them from their peer group.

Human Resources Specialist

The level of service from The Newburgh Group has been excellent. We have several agencies we use, and they have by far succeeded our expectations, always providing quality candidates, prompt response and great follow up, very quick response when we are ready to make an offer and we need additional information from candidate(s).


The Newburgh Group helped solve our Human Resource needs very quickly. All the dealings that I have had with The Newburgh Group were handled very professionally and confidentially. Our bank President and I are more than satisfied with the services that we have received from this firm and rest assured that if we need a recruiting search in the future, we will contact The Newburgh Group again.

Community President – Regional Bank

I have worked with The Newburgh Group on a few searches. Each time I felt very comfortable with their knowledge of my expectations for the position. They brought me candidates that really met those expectations. I have been pleased with their responsiveness and thoroughness.

Senior Vice President – Community Banking

In our companies quest to grow our business through quality individuals it is imperative we have a strong relationship with our professional partners. The Newburgh Group is a partner we trust and takes time to work on each specific request in a very timely and focused manner. I would recommend their services for your recruiting needs.


I found The Newburgh Group to be professional and very effective in locating and identifying solid bankers for me. I would recommend them to any financial services firm needing to fill important positions in a professional and efficient manner.

Human Resources Manager

The Newburgh Group is deliberate in their process. They are very customer focused, professional and operate with the highest integrity. They take time to understand the position requirement and the necessary interpersonal skills. Candidates are well qualified, so we don't waste time looking at people who do not fit.

Senior Credit Officer – Large Community Bank

I thought the search and screening of potential candidates was very thorough. The profile that lists the candidate’s strengths, matched abilities, and possible weaknesses in the candidate's background for the potential position, was very helpful. The overall verbal and candid discussion summarizing the candidate was also very helpful to me prior to interviewing the candidate. I thought The Newburgh Group did a great job in finding and selecting potential candidates for our position. I enjoyed working with you."

Candidate Testimonial


From the first time that I spoke with The Newburgh Group I could tell that they were very detailed oriented, and they kept me in the loop from every step of the way. If I had to say anything, I would say that my Account Executive treated me as if I were his best friend (even family). I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new position.


The Account Executive with whom I worked was very knowledgeable, helped walk me through the process, and checked in with me throughout. By finding and contacting me, they made a match that ended up having a huge positive impact on my career and life. They also saved me what could have been a time-consuming and stressful job hunt. Dual-career situations, in which both partners are specialized, are hard to navigate. They helped turn what could have been a "trailing spouse" situation into an amazing opportunity for me. I could not be more excited about my new job.

Retail Director – Regional Bank

Brandon Cooper at The Newburgh Group recognized an opportunity that met my skills and experience and quickly reached out to me. Even though I was not searching for a new job, he sold me on at least giving it some consideration. He was extremely professional throughout the interview and hiring process by staying in constant communication and working diligently toward a compensation package that worked for me and my new employer. Within a matter of a few short weeks, I have a wonderful new job that was not only an advancement from my prior position but provides even more opportunities down the road to grow as a banker and a leader.

Senior Vice President – IT and Bank Operations

I would like to thank The Newburgh Group for placing me in my "dream" job. They contacted me about 18 months ago about a position near Louisville. Normally, I wouldn’t consider making a move from my hometown, but just the "right words" were said to make me listen. The job has been more than I had ever hoped for. My new position has given me so many new opportunities, use of my skills and the pleasure of meeting many new friends. I have been surrounded with very talented peers and a support system from my manager, the President & CEO, the members of my staff and the Board. This would never have been possible without the persistence and exceptional courtesies shown by The Newburgh Group. Thanks again!!

Commercial Loan Officer – Regional Bank

In my many years of banking, I have been in contact and worked with many recruiters. Most seem to be in it for themselves and the next paycheck; however, The Newburgh Group was focused on the fit and the needs of both the individual and the client. A big key to success is surrounding yourself with successful people and finding a position that fits with your personal path to success. The Newburgh Group took it upon themselves to find that fit without jeopardizing the future of either party. I am sure the employees at The Newburgh Group look forward to their paychecks; however, they focus more on the personal relationship rather than the dollar value of the sale.

President and CEO – Community Bank

The Newburgh Group worked very hard with me and the prospective bank. Instead of concentrating on just filling a position, Mr. Cooper spent a lot of time making sure the bank and I were a good fit. By putting in this extra effort, Mr. Cooper ended up with two very satisfied parties. If I have a position to fill in the future I would not hesitate to seek his services.

Senior Vice President – Community Bank

I just want to say how pleased I was with The Newburgh Group relative to your role in my placement in a Senior Vice President position with this community bank. You responded quickly to my original cover letter and resume submission in early February. I was impressed that you had done your homework, were equipped to directly discuss my past experiences, and followed up promptly with me, requesting a detailed profile. Though the recruitment timeframe was somewhat lengthy due to client considerations, you "rolled with the punches," stayed in contact with me, and were able to maintain control of the process. Thanks for your help in making this career match. I value the relationship and hope we can remain in touch in the future.

Director of Business Development – Community Bank

I would like to thank you for all that you did to make this career move possible. It was a real pleasure working with you throughout the employment process. I have already shared with many people how you connected me with this job and I will continue to tell others how you were able to match my skills with the perfect position. It's amazing how a brief conversation over a year ago has led to this wonderful opportunity for me. I could be a testimonial to the fact that you just never know what will lead to success. Again, thanks for all you did for me.
