"April has been the backbone of my Retention Marketing department for so many years. I can honestly say she is a key factor to the success of my department by helping us quickly find and place the right candidates for our demanding and ever changing needs. Her expertise ranges from sourcing and recruiting to on-boarding and even employee retention. She does such a great job building relationships with her internal clients and the candidates. Beyond recruiting, just about everyone also leans on April for her HR General Manager expertise. Her attention to detail and proactive follow through has topped every other recruiter I’ve ever tried to use throughout my 20 years of experience. She would be a tremendous asset to any organization and comes with my highest recommendation." Kerrie Gabler

"Working with April has been great - she is dedicated, experienced, and worked very closely with my teams and I to understand our talents needs and delivered fantastic candidates to meet. Her rapid uptake of the complex needs and dynamics of our space was great - and she helped us land some really great new hires. April is that amazing balance of consummate professional, coach, and delightful partner - that delivered." Glenn Bulycz

"April is incredibly fun to have around and passionate about her work. The groups our team recruits for are complex and matrixed. Many of the hiring teams are spread out between different offices, so strong communication and relationship-building is key to being successful here. She picked up on things quickly and really helped with the heavy load our team was carrying. I hope to work with her again soon and cannot recommend her enough to those who are looking for someone to help build teams in fast-paced organizations." Liz Palacios

"I have had the pleasure of working with April for several years at DIRECTV (now AT&T). She helped us find top talent in Los Angeles and across the country. Her innovative approach to recruiting is complemented by her eloquence in dealing with many personalities. She easily connects with candidates and immediately gains their trust. She is more than a recruiter. Her responsibilities at DIRECTV extended into HR capacities as well. She integrated well with incumbent HR employees and contractors alike. April is a team player. She works closely with hiring managers to understand unique aspects of the positions for which she has been retained. She ensures successful placement by understanding the business and environment in which the candidates will participate. April is the best recruiter with whom I have ever worked. She helped grow my Sales & Marketing department and became a trusted adviser to candidates and managers alike."

"April Malovani is an experienced and, more importantly, successful recruiting partner. I emphasize “partner" as April truly works to understand the business need for each position she seeks to fill, ensuring that only those candidates that meet or exceed your requirements end up on your desk. April looks for both the explicit and soft skills each candidate possesses prior to passing them on to her clients, leading to an interview-to-hire ratio that is best-in-class. I've worked with many internal and external recruiters, and April has been the most successful and reliable source for the many years we worked together at DIRECTV."

"I can’t say enough good things about April. She is by far the best recruiter I have ever worked with. She takes the time to understand what you are looking for and sources excellent candidates. She is extremely professional, empathetic, can connect with people easily on a personal level and communicates clearly. I very much enjoyed working with her and hope that our paths will cross again."

"April is an excellent recruiter. When sourcing, she finds unicorns. My favorite part about working with April is that she doesn’t take no for an answer. Typically speaking, excellent-talent in the tech field are already well positioned. This doesn’t stop April from helping your company hire these well positioned candidates and have them come work for you instead. Through listening and then prodding her extensive network, she gets the job done and fills the the impossible to fill slots. She’s a pleasure to work with and she’ll easily juxtaposes technical necessities with cultural fits." Devin Levy

"April is the most proactive recruiter I've had the opportunity to work with. While working together, she managed the entire recruiting process from posting the JD to filtering applicants, and sourcing candidates externally. Additionally, she's extremely diligent and understands the type of candidate the hiring manager does and does not want to speak with, promptly reaching out and scheduling interviews, and managing next steps. I look forward to working with April again and would recommend her without reservation." Blair Lambert

"
I have been doing HR for many years, but April immediately impressed me by her personality and knowledge. She was just amazing and you can just feel her passion for her work when she speaks with you. She does not only recruit, but she cares about the candidate and the organization she is working for. When she contacted me, I felt like we were already good friends as I felt a common bond with her. She is also very personable. I would highly recommend her to any organization and if you want to hire the very best then she is definitely the right person!"

"April is beyond OUTSTANDING. She has so many recommendations, it's hard to add to them. Short version: She was able to recruit, hire at a rate of one new hire per month for approximately 15 months. During this time, we restructured the company and rewrote job descriptions and more for all. These were highly educated, competent professionals that needed to do outstanding work and fit into a small company with an existing culture. She handled this responsibility in an incomparable manner. I would hire her AGAIN - IN A MINUTE!!!" Glenn Hogue

"I had the fortunate opportunity to report to April at Discus Dental. Her knowledge of HR was uncanny, and I've been Recruiting for 8+ years. There wasn't a question she couldn't answer.  From a professional perspective, she is such a great ambassador of what HR should be in any organization, not just to say this as a "recommendation" but as fact, April was one of the most pleasant, friendly and warm individuals I've EVER worked with in HR.  She's not only very good at what she does, she's an awesome, warm, dynamic individual." Don Gee

"April is one of the smartest, sharpest HR people I've known in my career. She's very good at identifying what an organization needs and delivering it cost and time effectively. If I have an HR question or need some suggestions for employee recruiting, she's the first person on my phone call list."

"April was extremely instrumental in helping me launch and build a company.  Her tenacity, work ethic, knowledge and sheer determination was a critical component to our success.  Her expertise in employee law, employee relations, benefits and recruiting was unmatched.  And, she did it all with such style and grace.  April was also key in developing the kind of corporate culture that I wanted.  She was extremely strategic in establishing goals early on so everyone knew what was expected.  April is an outstanding team member who would be an asset to any company.  They would be lucky to have her."

"April Tamuty was an invaluable member of the IWIN executive management team as Vice President of Human Resources & Administration.  She set-up IWIN's HR/Admin department from scratch and managed the company's rapid growth from 35 to more than 125 employees over a six-month period.  She did so in a manner that allowed other senior management of the company to focus on their respective functions without being distracted by the normal personnel challenges accompanying rapid organizational growth.  IWIN was successfully sold for nearly $100 million shortly thereafter.  If I ever had to do it again, my first recruiting call would be April."
Michael P. Beck
Director & Chief Financial Officer
IWIN Corporation


"April Tamuty is one of the most influential people that I have met since graduating from college.  Following closely under her wings as the Human Resource Coordinator at Iwin.com, I learned that being part of the HR team required the ability and the expertise to “wear different hats”.  With April’s past experience and knowledge in the different areas of HR, she was able to establish Iwin.com’s entire HR department as well as putting together many different social events and programs for the employees. At Iwin’s peak, April was able to grow the Iwin team from 35 to almost 150 employees in a very short period of time.  And through the hustle and bustle of it all along with the growth and changes of the Internet industry, April always amazed me.  She always made time to listen, to say “hi” to each employee by name, and to make sure that everyone was treated equally.  Working with April has definitely changed my life.  She has not only been a teacher and a mentor to me, but also an honest and trusting friend as well."
Cat Velante
Human Resources Coordinator
IWIN Corporation


"I contracted April Tamuty to develop and build our company's entire HR Department from scratch before we hired a single person, and it was one of the best decisions we ever made.  She was essentially our third employee and although she only worked with us part-time, her ability to execute and attention to detail enabled her to surpass all of our expectations.  She was a critical factor in allowing our company to be so successful and ultimately selling the company for $10.8M and joining the Vivendi Universal family.  Our staff grew from two people to thirty and April made it an enjoyable experience.  HR is one of those departments that often get over looked when you are building a company and if you are successful, you realize how invaluable it is to have someone make sure you have followed the appropriate guidelines and can answer the tough questions.  I'll be calling April on my next project!"

"Over the course of the 6 months I have known April, she has served as an invaluable resource to 1GlobalPlace for all facets of our corporate development.  She is extremely adept at attracting potential employees and was very talented at presenting the company in a professional manner in first round interviews.  She skillfully negotiated various contracts with professional recruiters, movers and health care providers.  And finally, she is very knowledgeable in the area of HR structure and was very helpful in setting up the proper paperwork controls and compliance procedures at 1GlobalPlace.  She is a consummate professional and I would recommend her services to any company in need of Human Resources consulting."

"April Tamuty took on the position of Human Resources Manager of the Einstein/Noah Bagel Corporation and transformed the department from a hit-and-miss operation to a model of organization and efficiency, which is exactly how I would describe April's overall performance.  Her ability to identify and recruit the right people is incredible.  From the beginning of her time at ENBC she filled positions faster and with higher quality people than her peers.  This speaks to April's diligence, her creativity, and the warm personal manner that she used to attract only the top people to ENBC.  I hope that the praise of her skills does not overshadow the warm sense of humor and the personal touch that April brings to her job."
Tom Rickard
Director of Operations
Einstein/Noah Bagel Corporation


"April Tamuty is a total professional.  She sets high standards for herself and every task or assignment she takes on.  As a business owner, it is rare to find an employee that treats a business as though it were his or her own.  April is that rare person."

"April was fluent with every aspect of HR, and required little supervision to get the job done.  While she eagerly took charge and drove projects to conclusion, she was always willing to entertain new ideas and participate constructively in brainstorm meetings.  April put a high priority to creating additional communication lines with employees, which improved morale and contributed to building a positive work environment.  She was very proactive in coming up with useful concepts to make the startup environment more fun, while maintaining professionalism.  April was well qualified for her job.  The team trusted her to get the job done and she was well like by her peers.  I can highly recommend April for any position in human resources."
