Chief Technology Officer
World leading Maritime Logistics and Transportation conglomerate
Spartan headhunted me for my current role and completely changed my mind from past experiences with headhunters and recruiters. The Spartan team are clearly experienced professionals working at senior levels. Stathi was very diligent and ensured that I was kept informed through the entire process, which is usually the most stressful and frustrating aspect of the recruitment process. I can not think of a more diligent, honest, and responsible recruiter than Stathi. I would gladly recommend him and the Spartan team and feel confident that those who work with them will share my opinion. In a nutshell, Stathi and the Spartan team are excellent professionals and offer best in class services.

We have used Stathi on a number of occasions and we have always found him to be a very valuable resource – well connected and with a good understanding of the requirements. We would have no hesitation in recommending Stathi for executive searches in the maritime finance arena.
Investment Banking M&A
I was contacted by Andrew in 2013 for an opportunity in the investment banking sector and I was immediately impressed by his approach and knowledge about the market. Also impressive was his deep understanding of the nature of the work I had from my career which is very rarely met in recruiters. Throughout the project, he was always available, understanding the necessity to step up to fill in the gaps, either in timing or communication lags. The successful implementation of our project was in great part work of Andrew, who even after closing the deal, continued to contact me in order to assist me to properly close any loose ends with my former employer in a proper manner. I am happy to have met him & enjoyed greatly working with him. He really has created value to my career.

No doubt he’s one of the top recruiters in the market.
