Candidate Testimonials


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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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.
