As an investor and board member of several animal health companies, I believe nothing is more important than finding top talent. I have worked with Stacy Pursell for many, many years for good reason. She is 100% professional, thorough, well connected and well informed. I have full faith in her dedication and diligence to complete the task in a high-quality fashion.

Dennis F. Steadman
Founder of Merial and Velcera and Member of Steadman Capital

Throughout my 15-year tenure in hiring veterinarians, I’ve come to realize how crucial it is to build solid, honest relationships rather than relying on trendy sales techniques. Connecting with trustworthy partners is key to seeing beyond the surface image that many big companies put up to attract candidates.
Stacy is one of those go-to people I trust. I affectionately call her the Vet Whisperer because she’s fantastic at bridging the gap between what vets want and what employers need. She’s been a huge asset to me, and I’m always quick to recommend her to both vets and HR professionals.

Hal Pyke PHR
Founding Team Member, Former Vice President of Petvet Care Centers

“At Henry Schein Animal Health we have worked with Stacy Pursell and her team on a consistent basis for a number of years because she is the best in our business. Well-connected and well informed. We could not have wished for a more responsive and thoughtful recruitment consultant partner who always met our needs at both middle management and executive levels.”

Peter McCarthy
Former COO North America at Argenta and Former President of Henry Schein Animal Health

“Stacy is a dedicated and hard-working professional whose organized approach to each placement yields optimal results. She has a long and proven track record of keeping both the client and the candidate up-to-date on the process and she also uses her extensive recruiting experience and resources to effectively select the right candidates to present for each position. Stacy is also an individual who consistently demonstrates exemplary integrity and discretion in all of her communications and interactions.”
 Dr. Albert Ahn
Animal Health Industry Executive and Veterinarian

“Stacy Pursell is well connected and delivers. She listens to specific needs for a position and is successful in meeting those needs.”

Bruce Truman, Companion Animal Health Industry Consultant

“In an industry that attracts those who hide behind a fragile patina of hubris and bravado, it’s rare to find the real deal. Stacy Pursell is a genuine bona fide top producer who is also one of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever known. I have met literally thousands of recruiters in my role as a coach and consultant/trainer to those in the industry. Stacy Pursell is one of the most impressive, and one who has earned not just my respect, but also my admiration. It’s rare to find someone with a clearly defined value system who is also adept at the nuance and achievement skills required to function as a high performing executive search consultant. It’s no surprise that she is one of the top billing recruiters in the industry. I highly recommend Stacy and her search work.“
Scott Love, High Stakes Headhunter and Author/Keynote Speaker

There is no recruiter more passionate or dedicated than Stacy Pursell of The VET Recruiter. It’s one thing to be talented. It’s another thing to work hard. It’s yet another to consistently provide tremendous amounts of value to others. But it’s something completely different when a person does all three things ALL of the time…and that is exactly what Stacy does. I have never met another recruiter who operates with as much of a sense of purpose and has as much energy and enthusiasm as Stacy. In addition, she genuinely cares about the candidates and clients with whom she works. She strives to make every situation a win-win situation for everybody involved, and she loves to solve problems and make other people’s lives better in the process. And on top of everything else, Stacy is a person of integrity and runs her business with a firm and unwavering commitment to the highest ethical standards. In short, she has been and continues to be a pillar within the Animal Health industry and Veterinary profession. If you’re seeking to reach your career potential, looking to find top talent for your organization, or both, then you MUST contact The VET Recruiter. It will be one of the most intelligent professional decisions you’ve ever made.

Matt Deutsch
Director of Marketing for Top Echelon

I met Stacy Pursell and The VET Recruiter through her reaching out to me for new career opportunity. While working with her, she assisted me to land the career changing opportunity that I had hoped to have at some point. I will say that Stacy’s professionalism and knowledge is what makes her successful at what she does. I am so happy that we met and that she assisted to be the Director of Conventions and Meetings for AVMA.

Michael Wilson
Director of Conventions and Meeting Planning for the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)

With Stacy’s help, I not only found a new role in industry, but thanks to her diligent work to create a good fit, I found a new and incredibly fulfilling career path that I had never imagined, that leverages my skills and passions in a way I hadn’t realized possible. I thank Stacy tremendously for opening my eyes to new possibilities and sending me on a path that has brought me the challenging and engaging work that I enjoy.

“Stacy has an excellent network within the industry and is extremely responsive to customer needs.”

Hubert Trentesaux
Former Head of Global Business Operations at Virbac

Stacy is not the average recruiter. Her dedication in making sure that everything goes well during all steps of the process, even months after the person is on the new job, is amazing. She communicates often with the parties involved, provides relevant information, and make sure every step of the process is smooth and efficient. I am planning to use her services whenever I need to recruit good animal health professionals.
