Testimonials

“Hiring the right talent is the most critical part of running a business. Hiring the right people to get you the best people is the critical first step. Kathy and her team at Harris Allied have been an extension of our recruiting team since they were first formed. They take the time to understand our people and our individual search requirements. They target their recruiting and send us candidates that have been thoroughly vetted against both our specific requirements and our culture. They are a pleasure to work with and certainly one of the best recruiting companies we have ever worked with. ” 

Seth Merrin, Founder & CEO, Liquidnet

“I have had a business relationship with Kathy/HarrisAllied for some time now. Originally, it was for recruiting financial technologists. She was able to get some of the best technologists in front of me very quickly. I recently started a biomedical technology company, and very quickly needed an expert in Microsoft Azure. Kathy visited my offices with her colleague, explained her whole evaluation process, and within a day was able to provide me with a great candidate who I hired on the spot after an interview. I strongly recommend HarrisAllied without any reservation for companies that are interested in recruiting truly amazing individuals. ”

“Kathy and I worked together at Liquidnet for three years. During this time our paths crossed in several areas: first, in her recruiting function, she was instrumental in helping me successfully build my team. She was the first person I asked to meet with a candidate; she knew both Liquidnet's and my requirements, and she was first rate at assessing great talent. Second, Kathy was a key player in the Internal Communications area; she understood the messaging, and more important, how best to deliver the message in a fluid, dynamic environment. She is a strategic thinker who can execute tactically. She created several forums for delivering and receiving feedback, and she was able to take that data and build on it, so that there was a consistent and forward thinking approach in play. Lastly, our teams worked together on several projects and she was always a pleasure to work with; accountable, responsible, creative and fun. She's a great partner and I look forward to our professional paths crossing again soon.”

“Kathy Harris is an unusual talent - she combines meticulous organization and studious focus with a real passion for performance. She has a remarkable grasp of all aspects of the businesses she supports and is very much participant and contributor to the decision making processes around her. As far as domain expertise goes, she's a most curious HR professional as she really 'gets' the inter-relations between finance and technology and the people who make up the field. This might be because of her assiduous professionalism or it may be that she's just at an advantage working in the family business. Either way, I know that Kathy can contribute serious energy and intellect to any business or process and I look forward to collaborating with her in the future.” 

Tito Ingargiola, Quantitative Developer, Liquidnet

Kathy provided a full service, job profiling, talent searches, talent identification, comprehensive candidate attribution, and post placement services (training, discussion forums). I highly recommend Kathy, and value her contribution.”
