" In my line of business, overblown promises and mediocre results are encountered daily. To find a service provider like Brian was a complete and very pleasant surprise. Brian's SCM industry expertise is stunning. He can talk shop on contracts, procurement, raw materials, logistics, and all supply chain matters. To say that this was a process would be an insult. It was an experience. Fun, enlightening and enjoyable! I was glad to meet Brian. I will use him for as long as he is around, and I suggest you give him a shot. His boasts prove true. Brian delivered 100%, just as he assured. "
- James W., SCMP
"Over the years that we worked together, his brand stayed consistent and he earned my business at each turn. Brian did not fill my day with calls and emails to reach his quotas because he doesn't have to work at that level. Whenever he reached out to me, it was always relevant to the task at hand. He knows when to take "no" for an answer. He is always professional, even when the outcome may not have been what he wanted. Brian has reduced fees when a candidate did not stay on for as long as expected, and has offered great discounts for loyalty. He is a true professional, very knowledgeable and accurate in what he delivers. He has filled a number of positions in various categories and is extremely particular about who he represents. He has done a great job for us!"
"Would every recruiter like to fill their own positions? Yes. Is it always possible? No. It was during one of those “no” times that I was contacted by Brian re: a possible candidate for a key leadership position that we had open.
It was refreshing to work with a professional recruiter who valued my time instead of trying to consume it. His focus, like mine, was presenting a “right fit” candidate, and he never sent any “maybe candidates.”
Throughout the entire process, his behavior resembled that of a member of our team as opposed to someone from the outside. I believe Brian’s rare ability to advocate for both the candidate and the organization he is presenting comes from desire to develop a deep client relationship, not just making a sale. A unique, capable and refreshingly different recruiter!"
"Brian knows logistics and supply chain. His knowledge of the SCM executive role is astounding."
-Mike S., SCM executive
"I fully endorse Brian Brandt. Brian knows logistics! His grasp of 3PL, contract logistics, freight forwarding, and ocean consolidation is beyond impressive."
-Joe L., Logistics consultant and publisher
"I approached Brian based on his knowledge of eCommerce and technology as it coupled well with manufacturing, retail and brick-and-mortar channels. Brian was a consultant of mine as my firm grew form 100% brick-and-mortar to 80% e-commerce. We grew form $2M to $10M in 5 years."
"He really teaches you how to be a detective and find the hidden people you cannot see on LinkedIn; how to play on LinkedIn; and how to go outside of it for more than just a connection, but rather a meaningful and productive approach to someone you really want to know you or help you. I used his services for my own online branding and job search as well. I am thrilled with the results. Brian is a star."
(Hired RFSC to help build an internal recruiting division, and for help with her own successful job search!)
"Brian really drove home his dedication to me as a client by giving unexpected extra time that custom needs necessitated."

THESE ARE DIRECT QUOTES TAKEN FROM WRITTEN TESTIMONIALS.
Brian is a breath of fresh air and so fun to work with. He is the perfect balance of vibrant humor and business.
I would not hesitate to use his services again.
Knowing his background, he is always able to come up with quick and accurate answers to any questions. He is also inspirational and on point with his advisements on any workplace or career topic. Brian is also fun to work with. He is direct, but if you go with that, he'll take you down the right road.
Brian is extremely devoted, reliable, loyal and beyond up-to-date in job search strategy trends and techniques. I could not recommend him more highly.
I really enjoyed working with Brian. He is concise, direct, and understands what it is about you that lets you stand out to a potential employer.
Brian is brilliant. I worked in a very complex situation far beyond that of my titles in my last two roles. Brian got it. Brian listens, and this might just be why he reads back to you what you always meant to say.
After having made 300+ attempts to get attention with no response whatsoever, I immediately got calls.
I utilized Brian's full suite of services, to include assisting me with my search. With each opportunity, I learned what the ideal approach would be. There are no black holes in his world. No mysteries. And lots of action as a result of following his tutorials. He writes a letter that reads like a masterpiece, and he can help you find the ideal way to represent yourself and to say just about anything. Also great with interview questions! You'd be doing yourself a great service. His industry experience should also be noted.
I got an experience of a lifetime. Brian was a ton of fun, and he was able to tell me things about myself after our initial chats that I hadn’t put a voice on just yet. This is a great talent. He went over these and more at the end of it all, which was a nice bonus. Along the way, I felt that I was communicating with a colleague based on his knowledge of logistics and supply chain.
I even got two job offers at once. My new logistics/transportation employer liked my resume so much that they've created an Operations Analyst position just for me.
Brian is not kidding when he says he knows your industry.
I was blown away. Absolutely blown away.
Brian came highly recommended within luxury goods and jewelry. With a strong sense of branding and channels, he understands that buying is more than purchasing and marketing is more than selling. His direct experience in jewelry manufacturing, cosmetics and fragrance accounts, and channel sales advanced our conversation and the final product to a breathtakingly accurate presentation of my background and current offering. Brian went above and beyond
Brian clearly confirmed his ability to translate military terminology into civilian workplace achievement. The process was arduous to the extent that he demonstrated great conscientiousness at making such translations accurate, which aided me in my successful search. In other words, employers in the private sector understood what I had done; understood my accomplishments; and knew where I would fit in an organization.
This guy knows finance and accounting. This guy knows sales. This guy knows automotive
Brian’s direct IT and strategy consultancy experiences sealed the deal and won the day. Once it was abundantly clear he understood the intricacies CRM, MAT and KM and how they fit into overall IT Strategy and Planning
I landed a senior VP role shortly after working with Brian. His materials were complimented, and I must say he nails it all the way on both finance and healthcare.
Brian came with highest recommendations form a very specific contact I trust immeasurably.
Highest recommendation for Brian's work, and the experience I had working with him...
With a powerful network myself, I believe Brian can find your doors, tell you when to knock, and what to say when they open. Brutally honest and formidable in his capacity, he will be your best friend as a careerist.
—talking with Brian is like talking to your boss about the next big deal or plan. Great guy! Great experience!
Brian really takes the time to understand a person. He listens intently and then accurately tells you your passions, desires, and where you want to be in his own language.
His rare background, intelligence and creativity combine with stunning verbal acuity. He also has a great personality. You will feel very connected to Brian, too.
Brian is relentless in his desire to help people move forward in their career growth and goals, and it is obvious that he genuinely cares when you speak to him. Another remarkable experience is how Brian has a way of reverse engineering what you tell him, and then processing it, and regurgitating a newly formed statement that will resonate with precision to the person in the seat looking to hire someone like you.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Brian on a few occasions, I can honestly say that working with Brian has led to exceptional results for me each and every time.
