“Michael has been a core partner of mine for over five years in helping to build quality teams in various business models. Rather than running down his list of candidates, Michael takes time to understand the needs of the employer and the positions to be filled. He knows his market very well and his hands on approach helps facilitate the hiring process. Key business partners like Michael allow me to focus my efforts in other areas. When a position opens up, Michael gets the call…”

John Tellenbach, SVP Western Region – Comerica Bank                             


“Michael has always provided candidates that suited the opportunity. He knows his candidates well and is accurate in his descriptions of the candidates strengths and weaknesses.  I will continue to use his services.”

Nick Zappia, EVP – The Private Bank of California                                    


“Michael is one of the few recruiters I have ever met or worked with that consistently stays in touch with AND understands the value of his people. He followed up with me every 6 months for a few years and then one day he had an opportunity that was a perfect fit for me.

He has continued to touch base with me and maintain an interest in my career. His prior experience in the banking industry allows him to really get the “big picture” for what a company is looking for in the banking and finance industry.

I routinely refer Michael to my other banking peers as I know he will work with them to further their goals with a professional and personal approach.”

 Matt Olsen, Vice President, Treasury Management – Boston Private  Bank  


“When I asked my banker of over twenty years, who is the go to person for someone contemplating a career in banking it was fortunate that he referred me to Michael Caponnetto. Michael gave his time thoughtfully with game changing recommendations to my resume. More importantly, Michael added value to my proposition by analyzing my core competencies and advising how they would be best presented to a hiring manager. His honest and direct approach is priceless in efficient work practices and time. He has a talent to precede problems and provide solutions that reflects his deep knowledge of the banking world with an ability to communicate clearly the nuances of a competitive job market, something of a rarity today. I highly recommend Michael to any executive seeking representation in the banking or financial field.”

Joseph Mackin, Real Estate Executive                                                                         


“Michael contacted me and we have been friends since. Michael has a tenacity in getting the job done in the shortest amount of time. He is thorough and extremely clever. Michael has the ability to get you the answers that no one else seems to be able too. If I have an idea or a concern I contact Michael to get his valuable opinion. Michael is someone that you want on your side.Thanks for everything!!”
