Client Testimonials

“During my time as the CEO of the start-up company Veramaris where we grew our team from two to fifty colleagues, Alexander was successful in supporting Veramaris human resource team to identify global talents, conduct initial pre-screening interviews, recommend a shortlist of candidates, and then support with final interviews and renumeration packages. Alexander supports the entire process diligently and is persistent in his follow-up with all parties to move towards completion of the job task with the best possible candidate. I recommend Alexander to support you in your recruitment of talented individuals for various functional roles throughout a dynamic organisation.”

Karim Kurmaly (DSM-Firmenich)

Director Smart Protein

“As a company we embarked on a very critical search that was pivotal to the transformation of our organisation.  Alexander took the time to really listen, work with us on specific role detail, and also provided us some early one-on-one screening interviews to determine the type of candidate profile we were looking for. This approach allowed us to move quickly and gave us the exact candidate for the role. The experience was 5-star and I will definitely use AKP Resources for future hiring needs.”

Amy Yoder (QC Supply)

His network enables us to get in contact with many very interesting prospects, ranging from talented graduates to senior management. At the same time, he is dedicated to facilitating a candidate experience which aligns with our company brand and purpose."

Sif Rishoej (BioMar)

Vice President People, Purpose, Communication

"As Director of Product Development & Innovation at a global feed additive producer, I have worked closely with Alexander Kennedy for a few years when we were recruiting additional technical staff. I especially appreciated Alexander's approach: He takes plenty of time understanding the expectations of the company for a potential new employee and the team this employee should fit in. Only when being fully informed does he start the search, with a clear focus on proposing suitable candidates to match. In our situation, Alexander succeeded doing so in all cases."

Jan Dirk van der Klis (Herbonis)

Compared to many others in his field, the candidate pool he identifies is not only on target regarding the job function but they also have a strong motivational fit. I look forward to the next project with him.”

Candidate Testimonials

"Alexander demonstrated a high level of professionalism during the entire recruitment process and demonstrates a clear understanding of the sectors he works across. He is mindful to find the right fit for the role - ensuring subject matter expertise, values, and purpose are aligned. Throughout the recruitment process he provided clear, timely communication and follow-up. I would highly recommend Alexander to those recruiting and those seeking their next professional move."

Lindsay Pollock (BioMar)

Global Sourcing Sustainability Lead

“Alexander has a great intuition in matching the employer’s search for capable candidates and the employee’s search for great career opportunities. From our first contact on, he was very hands-on arranging online and offline interviews with Alltech, following-up the conversations and at the same time being very discrete and confidential. These are all great trademarks for a capable head-hunter. The fact that he’s specialized in the agricultural industry is naturally a big plus. Anyone who’s looking for new career opportunities or suitable candidates should definitely contact Alexander. Thank you again, Alexander, for the great introduction to the next chapter in my career.”

Hai Xia Zhu 朱海霞 (Alltech)

Alexander has knowledge about the sector and understands well what is required to get all involved over the goal line. I can strongly recommend Alexander.”

Jesper Clausen (Aller Aqua)

Group Director, Research & Development

“Alexander stood out from the very beginning of my hiring process. He is very familiar with the business environment and therefore asks the right questions. He has the ability to identify and extract the candidate’s values and find a match with the position requirements and company culture. His professionalism was present during the entire process, which was conducted in a transparent, ethical, and structured way.”

George Josef (DSM-Firmenich)

“Alexander brought me more than one opportunity that was relevant to my skill set.  He was very helpful in helping me weigh the pros and cons of each opportunity. When I decided which job was the best fit for me he really helped me with the process over and beyond what other recruiters have done in the past.
