Our Team

“I was contacted by Tom Berray of Cabot Consultants concerning an executive level position they were helping to source for a major client. During the entire process I found everyone at Cabot to be very forthright, highly communicative and exceptionally professional. In an era where the executive search process is often characterized by the lack of any sort of personal touch, I felt Tom and his team were as focused on me as a candidate as they were on the client they were serving.”

Steve Miranda, Managing Director, Cornell University Center for Advanced Human Resources Studies (CAHRS)
