Human Resources Executive (SVP, EVP), Formerly with Allergan, Broadcom and
“As an HR executive at two Fortune 500 companies, I made it a point to partner with outside resources that I completely trust to help achieve business objectives. Bill Sewell and Bob Williams are staffing professionals with whom I have worked regularly since 1997. To ensure a competitive edge, I restructured the staffing model at two large corporations hiring 1000+ employees per year. Key to the change were centralizing talent acquisition, adding a sourcing team to fill the pipeline for the most difficult to fill jobs and upgrading the quality of the full cycle recruiters. Williams and Sewell quickly provided the entire sourcing team with highly effective contract recruiters followed later by experienced full cycle recruiters to enhance our team efforts as hiring accelerated. They were an important contributor to the improvement of overall staffing metrics. The executive team’s opinion of Staffing dramatically improved in a short period of time. Bob and Bill both have experience leading large scale high tech staffing teams. This experience has been critical to their ability to understand the issues, collaborate on strategies, manage key relationships and hire the best recruiters to meet the needs. They have supported me in multiple industries: defense electronics, information technology, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals and medical devices. They have been a trusted, valuable resource for many years. It has been a pleasure working with them.”
I engaged Williams & Sewell to supply my current company, Mitek Systems, with both recruiting and HR support. They have provided highly competent senior HR and recruitment professionals who deliver quickly and efficiently. They blend well with our team and their cost is reasonable. Having earned my trust the hard way over many years, I continue to return to Williams & Sewell for assistance as needed and gladly recommend them to other firms.”

Williams & Sewell has been a key business partner to the Broadcom Staffing team since 2004. We depend on them to provide us with contract sourcing recruiters and full cycle contract recruiters to support technical and non-technical recruiting worldwide. Their recruiters have done a great job on very challenging assignments supporting the high volume hiring needs for engineering, management, sales, marketing, information technology and G&A. Over the years, contract recruiters from Williams & Sewell have greatly contributed to reducing cost per hire and time to hire, while providing high quality candidates. We intend to continue our relationship with Williams & Sewell for similar or expanded HR services.
In 1999, DENSO became Williams & Sewell first client and began to rapidly expand its CDMA handset development team in support of a contract with a major wireless carrier. Williams & Sewell was brought in to manage the entire recruiting function. Their team of contract technical recruiters was instrumental to the creation of a world class engineering team that delivered several successful products to market.
