Client and Candidate Testimonials

Clients said:

As chairman of the search committee, I especially appreciated the professional expertise you brought to the search. You are to be especially congratulated on your ability to steer the process to a successful conclusion without upsetting any of the hospital’s search committee. Your process in presenting the applicants to the search committee was very efficient yet thorough. The videos were very helpful.

Board Chair of southeast client hospital CEO search

I want to thank you for the outstanding job you did in recruiting our Director of Marketing and Public Relations. The position had been open for a year before you took over the search and within a few months we had a great slate of candidates. We especially appreciated the opportunity to use the “VIDEOVIEW” tool that you provide, which made selecting candidates for on-site interviews so much more efficient.

Thank you for assisting the medical center and filling the need for a Vice President for Patient Care Services. All of our dealings were professional, and your expertise was evident from my initial contact with you. Our process moved efficiently, and the result has been most satisfactory. The use of Videoview® was a differentiating factor in our decision to utilize the NUTTER GROUP. It proved to be a tool that assisted us greatly in the screening process and contributed to the efficiency of the overall search.

The service that the NUTTER GROUP provided our retirement community as we searched for a CEO is greatly appreciated. I look back upon the search process as essentially positive, yielding several excellent candidates, any one of who probably would have served the Community very well. I especially appreciated Videoview® and the savings this technique provided to the entire search process.

Board Chair and Province Coordinator for Southern faith-based continuing care retirement community CEO search

I am writing to give you a sort of a retrospective of our recruiting efforts and your assistance in those efforts. Simply put, we could never have done anywhere near as thorough a job as we did without your assistance. We have been very pleased with our new president, and in retrospect we felt you brought to us a strong group of candidates. I, personally, found you to be very efficient, timely in your response to all of our requests, and very easy to work with.

Search Committee Chair for Midwest faith-based continuing care retirement community CEO search

We retained the Nutter Group and the leadership of Roger Nutter to find a VP for Nursing to replace a retiring executive. Nutter has a methodical, well-organized process, and is very efficient. Midway through the process, I was impressed enough with his approach and his network to ask him to help us find a Medical Director for our new health center project. This was a critical hire for the organization. He took that on without breaking stride on the initial engagement. We’ve filled both jobs with excellent people. Over a period of about seven months, he helped us fill two very important positions. We found his fees to be competitive and probably a value compared with the other retained firms we’ve used or considered. I would definitely use him again.

CEO for freestanding Midwest community hospital

I would like to thank you for the quick and efficient way you came in and evaluated our needs, and then quickly presented eight quality candidates to us. Your Videoview® interview system was a great help. It was much easier to evaluate a candidate with it, than a written resume only would have been. Your system allowed us to pick four individuals for on-site interviews. The selection of highly qualified people made it possible for us to fill our vacant Chief Executive Officer position in under ninety days, something I didn’t think would be possible. I won’t hesitate to use your group in the future and would highly recommend your group to anyone doing an executive search.

Board Chair for rural community hospital CEO search

I would like to thank you for two recent management placements you have made for our medical center. You placed our new Vice President of Patient Services, recruited by your firm from a large hospital in Florida. I know this was a very hard search and you brought us some excellent candidates from which to choose. In her first two weeks, she has already done some fantastic work. In addition, you placed our new Director of our School of Radiology. You recruited her from Arkansas and she is wonderful. She is currently working closely with the university to combine our two-year Radiology Technology program with a bachelors program. This will be very beneficial to the medical center. I know this was a very hard search because we tried several months on our own to recruit for it and were unsuccessful. We look forward to working with you in the future.

Candidates said:

It is true: In the situations where I've inquired about a role, there have been very few firms who have had the courtesy to provide any type of feedback. I understand the volume of work that type of follow-through requires, and I appreciate your willingness to carve out time from your schedule to do so. It speaks much about you and your firm. Thank you once again, Roger.
