“I have been working with ACTSearch for over 10 years. We continue to use their executive and technical search services, because John Kratz becomes an extension of our team, spending the time to get us through the hiring process. The successes I have experienced in my career are partly due to John and his firms ability to get us the key strategic hires on time.”
President of Olea Systems Inc
"ACTSearch is one of the very few search firms focused on recruitment in the Wireless Sector. I have had John’s support in building technology teams at SiRF, WirelessHome, and Truespan. John has recruited Engineering Managers for me in Software and RF, Product, Systems and Chip Architects, and Senior RFIC & ASIC Engineers. ACT has been integral to the success of SiRF and WirelessHome, and will be integral to the success of TrueSpan."

"I have known and worked with John Kratz and ACTSearch from the early 1990’s. The attributes I appreciate about John and his firm are his straight forward and professional approach in conducting business. He always tries to understand customers’ requirements and needs beyond the job descriptions. He has broad knowledge of the wireless markets and the people that make it move and found me the right people with the right skills without flooding me with “garbage” resumes. His professional and friendly approach always impressed me even in tough situations."

"ACTSearch is truly a different type of search firm. The principals at ACTSearch really know and understand their technical space. This is a real advantage in working with them – both from the hiring and search standpoints. I have used them since 1995, first as a systems engineer and then as a hiring manager. They understand all the key facets of a wireless communications business and can assist in finding positions for engineers as well as those in marketing, program management, quality and manufacturing. It is rare to find this type of breadth under one roof. I would work with them again in a heartbeat."
President, LiveSmart Technology
"John is one of my favorite recruiting resources and is one of the first calls I make when I have a tough-to-fill position. He understands our needs and the market; has strong, long-term relationships with potential candidates; and makes great matches. He works well with HR and hiring managers alike, and within whatever system is required of his clients. After a career of working with hundreds of third-party recruiters, I'd put John near the very top of the best all-time recruiters with whom I've ever worked."
Former Director of Human Resources, Impinj, Inc.
"John has been finding me high caliber wireless engineers for over 15 years. ACTSearch has always put in the extra effort to clearly understand my needs. Over and over they have demonstrated the ability to rapidly uncover and recruit uniquely qualified candidates. They are an absolute pleasure to work with."
