What are people saying from atop the Pedestal?
We are an independently owned franchise office of Sanford Rose Associates. Kathy worked at our franchisor’s office as Senior Director of Operations. Our franchisor moved his office from Ohio to Georgia, so Kathy started The Pedestal Group since she has family in Ohio and wanted to stay there. Kathy is so highly respected by the independent office owners that we implored her to move with the company, but it was not to be.
I have also had the opportunity to use her services at The Pedestal Group. Our firm’s presence on the internet was nebulous, at best. We had moved our franchise office and had also changed our franchise name and contact information. A few days after Kathy fixed our online information, I was contacted by a hiring manager who had worked with me 9 years ago when we were operating out of our former office location.
It is very difficult for me to choose three out of the seven LinkedIn choices provided that best describe Kathy’s services. She is everything mentioned and more. I cannot say enough good things about her. – Edie Felker, Owner, Sanford Rose Associates – Del Mar

Kathy is one of the most customer focused support service providers I have had the pleasure to work with. Always has a great attitude even under some of the most challenging circumstances. Excellent on follow-up, you can expect her to get the task completed. – David Creeger, President, Sanford Rose Associates – Fairlawn
Kathy’s enthusiasm is contagious. She is fun, positive, hard-working, diligent and a phenomenal resource!! Kathy is one of the tip-top performers that I have worked with in the recruiting business. I highly recommend her & I look forward to any opportunity to work w/ Kathy again. The sole reason Kathy is no longer a colleague is due to geography…period. Two words: hire her! – Kevin Norgeot, Managing Director, Sanford Rose Associates – Boston South Shore
Embarking on a new business can be extremely stressful, but when I joined the Sanford Rose Associates network, Kathy’s broad knowledge, support and encouragement, and extensive array of skills helped make the transition easy. Whether I’ve needed as a talented technical resource, a strategic and analytical thinking, a tactical planner and doer, or simply a sounding board and cheerleader, Kathy has been the only resource I have needed in getting my business off to a strong an positive start. Kathy is truly a superstar!! – Roz Ben-Chitrit, Managing Director, Sanford Rose Associates – Southern Connecticut
I would happily recommend Kathy to just about anyone who would listen. She was instrumental in helping me to get my practice up and running and making sure our daily operations went smoothly. She has a deep knowledge of the Search industry as well as a good grasp of operating a small business. She would be a great resource for anyone in Executive Search form both an operational and IT aspect. – James Tolan, Managing Partner, Transgistics Talent Management
Kathy is the best “techie” I have ever worked with. While technically strong, she recognizes that supporting internal and external customers is key to everyone’s success. Kathy uses technology as a tool to help individuals and teams achieve their goals as well as enhancing the image of the company. Her business sense is exceptional and if we could bottle her enthusiasm it would fly off the shelves. If not for geographic constraints, I would have Kathy on my team today. – Doug Rogers, Executive Search Consultant, The Lucas Group
