“It gives me great pleasure to write the business reference for KE Select. I have worked with Kerry McMahon for 5+ years on all levels of recruitment for Beckman Coulter, including Senior Executive Search projects. Beckman Coulter is in the Diagnostics, Life Science sector, some of our positions can only be sourced from a very niche market. I have always found Kerry exceptional in sourcing the right candidates in every role that we have placed with her. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of KE Select.”

Pamela Youngman, HR Manager ANZ Beckman Coulter

“It is my absolute pleasure to give this recommendation, as I have truly valued KE Select as a Recruitment partner. Kerry is the most genuine recruiter I have ever worked with. Her ability to build great working relationships so quickly is no doubt the reason why Kerry is so successful in networking. Kerry makes it her business to understand her client's needs; with the view of sourcing quality candidates who not only exceed the KSC's for the role but more importantly have the personal attributes and outlook that we, as an organisation, deeply value. Her consideration of culture and team fit is also highly regarded. Thank you Kerry for your support over these last few years. Wishing you much continued success and happiness”

Denise Porter-Dewar, HR Business Partner Merck Life Science ANZ

“I have worked with Kerry across multiple organisations over the last 15 years and have always appreciated a number of aspects of how Kerry operates. She is urgent, she is accurate, she is a delight to deal with, she takes her time to understand what we are trying to find and then supplies candidates who are suitable to the role. If she is not sure she does not just forward the candidate but again takes the time to discuss any issues and resolve appropriately. The Life Science sector is somewhat niche with many idiosyncrasies and Kerry is a proven consistent judge of applicable talent saving us much wasted time. Over the years Kerry has proven to be flexible with her approach and her value proposition and this is much appreciated. I would have no hesitation recommending Kerry to others and plan to continue to use her services.”

Matt Banfield, Area Head of Sales – East Asia Pacific Eppendorf

“Kerry was a delight to work with. Highly motivated, direct, quick to understand the brief and responsive to feedback during our search for a clinical trials lead position at our Australian subsidiary. She worked efficiently and was quickly able to quickly shortlist some outstanding candidates, leaving us with a difficult choice on the last two - a good outcome for a search. I can recommend her without reservation!”

Matt Cooper, CEO Inflazome

“KE Select Executive came highly recommended by a fellow Senior Manager at Candela, which is how I came to first work with Kerry McMahon. Her consistent delivery of exceptional quality service paired with considered insights and recommendations has seen her become an integrated strategic business partner for Candela. Kerry and the team have since worked with Candela on many recruitment projects, including recruitment for Executive/Senior Management roles as well as roles within the Clinical, Marketing and Operations teams in Australia and New Zealand. Kerry has performed a remarkable job at every level of her service. She is quick to understand our needs, extremely dynamic and hard working. She is passionate and has the ability to deliver what is in the best interests of both Candela and her candidates. Kerry has played an instrumental part in helping us build a high performing team and we forsee our partnership continuing to only grow stronger in the future. ”

“KE Select has been highly responsive and resourceful in finding us great talent for both niche and hard to fill roles within our business to date. Finding great talent who are suitable for a highly regulated GMP business at times can be challenging and competitive. KE Select have been great as scientific recruitment specialists who understand our business and know the market and Thermo Fisher Scientific. Look forward to continuing our strong partnership. ”

Kym Baker, General Manager Patheon Biologics (Thermo Fisher Scientific)

“My experience with KE Select has been nothing short of extraordinary. From very on in the pandemic in 2020, KE Select were the single driving force in our ability to activate rapid response covid testing in community drive-through testing, emergency response testing in aged care, public housing and industry, as well as surge capacity in laboratory operations. During my time as Chief of Operations at SydPath the KE Select team were able to respond to the extremely dynamic nature of outbreaks, building entire teams within hours. All facets of advertising, screening, recruitment, and rostering was covered across multiple locations and disciplines, to the point that I could entirely rely on their team to oversee activity in these areas leaving me to manage high level operational matters. It was a true partnership, everything I threw at them was handled with utmost dedication, optimism and passion, transforming a stressful and exhausting period of time into an energizing and inspiring experience that I will never forget. The success of our entire covid-19 testing program is credited to the relationship our organizations shared. At the peak of the Delta outbreak in 2021 I left SydPath to take a senior operational role at Histopath, and wasted no time in bringing the KE Select team into our operations. Our community testing and laboratory requirements grew rapidly, with daily testing numbers rising from 18,000 per day to 80,000. Healthcare and laboratory workers were scarce during this time, which amplified further when Omicron hit in December. However every request for staff (no matter how outrageous) KE Select were able to keep pace with our rapid and demanding growth with unwavering sacrifice and dedication. There are many Health Services in regional and rural NSW communities that owe an enormous debt to KE Select for enabling us to provide these areas with industry leading service at the time they needed it the most. ”

Greg Granger, Director, Strategic Operations, Histopath Diagnostic Specialists

“Kerry and her team work tirelessly and professionally to provide additional staff for collections centres, logistics, stock management and laboratory testing. This rapid deployment and onboarding of staff during Covd-19 outbreak allowed us to provide surge testing and increase our testing capacity rapidly and efficiently. The entire KE select team were both professional and a pleasure to deal with. The level of service and innovation provided to what was a stressful situation was outstanding. No request was too difficult. The quick turn around times at providing staff made a difficult process straightforward and unproblematic. KE select through hard work and innovation allowed SydPath the ability to recruit and staff our whole laboratory and collections teams. ”
