From the Client’s Perspective: 

“I have known Ms. Ann Trotter, in her capacity as a Search Consultant with Kaye/Bassman, International for approximately three and a half years.  As a Regional Health Informatics and Information Management Director with Community Health Systems, supporting 30 hospitals, I have worked with her frequently to place HIM Directors and Coding Managers in those facilities as turnover has occurred.  I have consistently found Ms. Trotter to be professional in all of her dealings with me and the hospitals that I support.”

“I have worked as an HIM Director and a Regional HIIM Director for greater than 20 years and have dealt with many recruitment and staffing companies.  Ann Trotter has consistently done the most thorough pre-screening of the candidates presented to me, based on the deliverables I want to see in a candidate, of any recruitment/staffing consultant I have worked with.  I have found that I can rely on her to present more and better qualified candidates than anyone else.  On occasion I’ve had several critical positions, all needing to be filled at the same time.  In working with Ann, I have felt that I had a partner who shared my sense of urgency in the search process.  She has never tried to ‘sell a candidate’ just to fill an order.  I have always been able to rely on her to provide a candid assessment of a candidate’s strengths and weaknesses, with her only bias being to ensure that I was able to make an objective hiring decision.  Whenever I have positions to fill, and choose to open those opportunities outside of the company, I always turn to Ann first.  Whenever my peers seek a contact to help them in locating good candidates for their open positions, I never hesitate to recommend Ann.  She is the best I’ve worked with.”

“The University of Texas – Dell Medical School embarked on an aggressive timeline to secure the Department Chair for Obstetrics and Gynecology.  We assessed several firms and selected Kaye/Bassman International Corporation based on their background and experience in academics. KBIC did a good job interviewing key stakeholders throughout the institution, community, and hospital so that a true portrayal of the new medical school could be presented to potential candidates.  They were able to accommodate our expedited 120 day timeframe while still conducting a nationwide search to ensure that the selected candidate met our specific needs.  Eric ensured that each interview was well coordinated and that the confidentiality of each candidate was held in the highest regard. Throughout the process, Eric kept the lines of communication open with each candidate as well as myself and helped facilitate the process to meet our aggressive selection deadline.

Eric Dickerson and the rest of the Kaye/Bassman team provided exceptional service and I am very pleased by the outcome of the search.  I would highly recommend Kaye/Bassman International Corporation for any critical and/or time sensitive search you may have.”

Testimonials – From the Candidate Perspective:


“I always enjoy a conversation with Ann Trotter, and I thank her for the kind words.  Even more so, I appreciate her straight-forwardness.  About 95% of the calls I get are a waste of time; not just my time, but the callers time, as well, so Ann is surely a rare breed!”
