Client Testimonials

“We had a number of incredible firms bid, but ultimately it was the demonstrated history of working with our community and TS Talent Solutions’ commitment to client service that compelled us to select the firm. Ryder and the team at TS Talent Solutions were the perfect partners for the City Council. They generated an incredible pool of talent for us to consider and ultimately positioned us to make a choice that won unanimous approval. It is clear that Ryder and his team know local government and have a keen understanding of local government, but equally important is that they really took the time to hear each council member about their concerns and hopes for the next City Manager.”
