"Jerome and the hunton lewis France (formerly known as Hartmann & Lotz France) team are highly recommended for recruitment in the cloud computing market in France. In late 2009 I needed to build a brand new European sales and pre-sales technical specialist team for the new cloud computing division of our company. This project needed to be executed: (i) by targeting and approaching specialist "passive" industry hi-performers, (ii) be conducted very confidentially and finally (iii) be completed in record time as the new team had to be in place within three months. They fully understood my requirements, followed the process I setup very closely whilst handling the pressure well at all times. Most importantly they delivered!"
