"I’ve known Ashley for more than a decade now. I've worked with a lot of recruiters over the years and can honestly say she is one of the most caring and resourceful people I’ve met. She truly loves what she does and it shows. She is a people person who is finely tuned to her client’s needs, quickly matching the perfect candidate with a company opportunity."

"For many years I've had the pleasure of working with Ashley and her staff as a client-employer and as a client-applicant. The professionalism, communication and knowledge in the talent sourcing arena can only be summed up as “superb!” In an era where many recruitment agencies are more interested in building a robust talent database, The Emery Company is more interested in actually speaking to candidates to learn more about their expertise and skills to pinpoint their career goals. On the client employer side, The Emery Company always conduct a thorough job analysis which enables them to source the right talent quickly; eliminating a myriad of unqualified resumes. They proactively communicate and follow up on all positions working in the best interest of their clients. The Emery Company really is a lighthouse that constantly searches across the sea of talent and is able to skillfully navigate people to their career destinations. They are the best-kept secret around!"

"Simply put, if I need top talent, my first contact is Ashley. Without fail, she presents candidates that are qualified, intelligent, articulate, and hit the ground running. Ashley makes the extra effort to completely understand the environment that the prospect is going to work in and the people that they will engage with so as to determine the right fit professionally as well as culturally. No one I have worked with in this profession produces the consistent excellent results that Ashley does, with a smile."

"Ashley and her team are true professionals. They take the time to personally work with each candidate in order to provide their customers in each of their hiring situations, with a number of insightful and valuable options. I would contact Ashley and her team again to utilize their expertise at my first opportunity."
Software Development Company
"I am pleased to recommend Ashley Preston of The Emery Company. Ashley and I have worked together over the past several years in different capacities. She and her team have been my preferred recruiter for General Administrative positions as well as Information Technology positions. Over this timeframe, Ashley and her team have provided candidates for various positions within PrimeSys.
Some of the positions Ashley has filled include Project Coordinators, Project Managers, ABAP SD/FI Consultants, Payments Candidates, Java and Oracle Financial Developers, etc.
When I have an open position, I turn to Ashley Preston first because I know she will present candidates to me that very specifically meet my position description. Emery carefully screens their candidates, ensuring that the ones presented match the position needs and our company culture.
I have such trust in Ashley, that I have recommended two of my personal friends who are seeking positions to Emery as well. An additional component of Emery's service that I would like to mention, is the personal face to face interaction and hand written letters that you receive when Emery interacts with their clients. They provide a personal touch which is not often found in the market.
I highly recommend Ashley Preston and Emery as a preferred vendor and feel confident that Emery will be an asset to any company by presenting highly qualified, valuable, contract, contract to hire and permanent employees."

Senior Vice President – Deployment Services at PrimeSys
"I worked with a member of the Emery team in both a supervisory and a peer capacity. I found her to be a can do person. Whatever task assigned to her, she finds a way to get it done in a timely and quality manner. She has a positive personality that is infectious to both peers and clients.
During hurricane Katrina she was a member of the recruiting team who recruited, interviewed and hired 1100 people in 9 days to populate our call center. In addition, she worked with me in the staffing of engineers to provide design engineering for FIOS implementations and cell site engineering and maintenance. Both recruiting and staffing efforts were time critical and required a diligent effort. She did an outstanding job in both areas.
I couldn't recommend her more highly."
SVP- Account Management
"I worked with a member of the Emery team for five years at Fujitsu Consulting. I was President and Gen. Manager responsible for all of sales and the delivery of the product which our customers bought. My customers were large Telecommunication Companies such as Verizon, AT&T, Bellsouth, etc.
During the time she worked with me on the Verizon Account I spent much of my time in South America building a very large Call Center in Costa Rica. I had her take over this customer and she succeeded in winning large contracts for FIOS implementations, overseeing the maintenance and engineering of cell sites and recruiting of engineers.
She would meet and sell to the Managers, Director, VP, and President level of the organization and I had very positive feedback from the customer with her professionalism and overall attitude in her approach and the quality of work she produced.
If I was to start another company, I would hire her tomorrow."
President, Fujitsu Consulting
"Ashley Preston is one of the most professional and the most personable account managers I have worked with. She puts a human spin on the recruitment process, treats you as an individual not a resume. She takes her time to meet you in person, to get to know you as a professional and as an individual. She holds your hand throughout the process, makes sure you have all your concerns and questions addressed and makes you feel comfortable all the way through. She is genuinely committed to delivering the highest quality of work to everybody she interacts with."

"I’ve worked with Ashley for almost fifteen years, as a VP at HP/Compaq in IT, with clients such as Lowe’s, and as CEO of a research company; she has always been my go-to for IT resources, Six-Sigma, Program Management, and even Marketing Support. The people she finds are sharply focused on our needs, and located within a very short window. I can’t recommend her more highly, and I look forward to using her for many more years, and recommending The Emery Company to my consulting clients too."
Managing Director -The Process Core Group
"I partnered with Ashley and her expert recruiting skills to help me build a new organization. What sets her skills apart from other recruiters is her uncanny ability to hear what is not stated. She was able to easily merge the job descriptions with cultural fit putting forth excellent candidates removing the difficulties of sourcing and hiring from my already over committed responsibilities. I highly recommend her services."
