I am a marketing research practitioner who has known Alex for many years and has worked with him in the capacity of both a hiring manager and as a candidate, with successful results in both scenarios. Madison Wells recruiters have an excellent understanding of marketing research and analytics and are very well-networked in these fields. In addition to being effective recruiters, and moreover highly ethical ones, the approach of Madison Wells recruiters suggests that they are interested not merely in completing the current engagement or getting the next one, but rather in building long-term trust-based business relationships.

Andrew, SVP Research & Insights, Technology Client Seattle

Alex is a strategic thinker and operator. Those skills, combined with his personable demeanor and energy are a very impressive package!

Anne, Exec. Vice President, Market Research Supplier Client New York

Alex and Beth are both very knowledgeable about the market research field, extremely responsive, and professional. They gave great advice throughout the interview process and helped place me in a position that was an excellent fit for my career goals.

Ashton, Candidate Chicago

Working with Madison Wells was a pleasure from start to finish. Early on in the process, Beth was a good listener and made sure it was a good fit for both parties involved. Throughout the remainder of the process she was extremely helpful, organized, transparent, and went above and beyond to provide valuable advice in a difficult career decision. Couldn’t be happier!

Austin, Candidate Los Angeles

Working with Alex was remarkable. He has a keen sense for great talent . He can deduce with great expertise a candidate’s strengths and how they can complement a business – and communicates it with honesty. I was also astounded by the amount of industry knowledge that Alex commanded. It’s a real treat to find someone who not only knows the field but the detailed differences in talent across the breadth of analytics, research, insight, and intelligence space. Hands down, a talent partner with deep expertise and a profound sense of integrity.

Chad, Chief Strategy Officer, Ad Agency Chicago

Madison Wells recruitment services were instrumental in helping me find a job that I love. Beth from Madison Wells found a fantastic role that suited my background and career goals and her friendliness and utmost professionalism helped me to prepare and negotiate myself into a position I could not have dreamt of prior. I am so thankful I was able to work with Madison Wells and I encourage anyone looking to make a positive career change to do the same.

Gerald, Candidate Chicago

Alex Bell and his team at Madison Wells contacted me in 2016 about an opportunity that fit my profile and interests. I appreciated his pragmatic and thoughtful approach to qualifying the mutual fit. I’ve been in Market Research 20 years working for several major firms and this is the best assignment of them all. Thanks again Alex and Beth!
