  • "My experience with Lisa for the past few years has been outstanding.  The key in her business is how to understand the corporate and personal needs of the customers and she probably does that better than anyone I have encountered in her field.  Lisa’s professionalism is impeccable and her knowledge of the banking industry provides you with an insightful analysis of what is required for the particular position. I look forward to continuing to work with FPC in the future”

    "Lisa Gaeta was absolutely wonderful to work with. Her passion for matching the right job and organizational culture with the right individual was evident from the very start. Prior to meeting Lisa, having been in HR for many years, including executive level positions, I felt confident I could handle my own job search. After three unsuccessful months and countless job applications, I was fortunate to make Lisa’s acquaintance. From our initial conversation to our celebratory lunch only a few weeks later, it felt like I knew Lisa for years. Her ability to quickly and accurately assess who I was as a person and as a professional was uncanny.  Lisa is one of those rare professionals who successfully balance both the heart and the head. I was, and remain impressed with her passionate dedication to both the job seeker and the organization -- to place the best fit rather than to merely place a person in a job. Without hesitation, I highly recommend Lisa to job-seekers and organizations alike. “
  • "I just wanted to write a short note to thank you for everything you have done for me over the last couple of months. My experience with Finance Placements & Consulting was truly a delightful experience in working with an executive search firm. I was so impressed by the professional approach and the sensitivity to the difficulty of such an important matter in one’s life. Lisa you were always so encouraging and extremely informative about your client each time we spoke. Your professionalism, tips and suggestions were right on and the negotiating part of our discussion was most helpful, the final terms for my position as Senior Vice President exceeded my initial expectations. All of this is because you took the time and made the effort beyond just another transaction for you. The Chandler family cannot thank you enough for being a part of this process with me, and I would strongly recommend your company going forward.”

  • "Our company suddenly was without a Chief Financial Officer, and there was no time to conduct any type of succession planning or detailed job search using our internal human resources department. One call to Finance Placements and Consulting, Inc. literally saved our company. Lisa Gaeta provided our company with the perfect CFO candidate within ten days of contact. Lisa’s ability to understand our unique needs, and to immediately match these needs to a qualified applicant proved invaluable. We hired the candidate and both he and our company have excelled. I would recommend the services of Lisa Gaeta and Finance Placements and Consulting to any company looking for top notch professionals. “

    "As a former market president of a large southeastern financial institution I have worked extensively with Lisa in recruiting key positions with that company. Lisa continually filled our executive level requirements and needs in an extremely prompt and professional manner. Her ability to locate the best talent is unmatched. I will continue to work with Finance Placements & Consulting as long as I am in the financial services industry.“
  • "CUBC is a rapidly expanding national organization and we need highly qualified talent across the country to grow with us. Finance Placements & Consulting has done a fine job filling this gap. Our experience with FPC has been in two key areas, our Chief Lending and Chief Financial Officer. FPC took the time to truly understand the positions, the culture of CUBC, interpersonal style and our future growth path. FPC hit the nail on the head with the talent that was hired and CUBC has experienced immediate positive impact to our business. FPC is an exceptional partner when it comes to locating our talent.“

    "Working with Finance Placements & Consulting, Inc. is a true testimonial on how executive placement firms should operate. Their team does a phenomenal job of understanding the specific needs of their clients, both locally and nationally. They take the time to meet with the management team, in person, to learn and understand the clients’ culture and long term goals. This understanding allows them to recommend only the most qualified candidates. I don’t know how they are able to consistently find top talent in such a competitive marketplace, but they are always my first call when executive needs arise for me, my organizations, and my clients. “
  • "From start to finish, Finance Placements & Consulting, Inc. (FPC) is a professional organization that assisted and met my every need along the path when I decided to change firms. I was so impressed by the speed of response to my initial contact, the professionalism and market knowledge of their consultants and the pro-active partnership approach employed by FPC. In particular, Lisa Gaeta was encouraging and informative about the client’s hiring preferences, my expectations, my interviewing feedback, post-interviewing procedures, and even tips on proper negotiating etiquette for salary and perks during final offer terms for my current position as a Chief Financial Officer – an opportunity that has far exceeded my initial expectations “
