“Dan Rossetti is the quintessential Recruiting Professional to work with!

I had the utmost pleasure of working with Dan filling a Director position here in Daytona Beach, Florida with Americrown/ISC. Through clearly listening and understanding his client’s needs, he articulately described all details of what the position responsibility encompassed, which made it very easy for me to conceptualize how well my skills and experience matched with the potential employer’s needs.

Since being hired, it has been just a fantastic, symbiotic match between my employer and I, and I believe that we are both reaping the rewards of a great work relationship. It really made a normally uncertain transition process from one employer to another, into a stress-free, pleasant experience for my family and I. I would strongly recommend him for any future employment opportunities that you may have. He is a stellar individual that handles all sides in the hiring process with respect, care, and financial concern.

What more can I say about him? … I can’t think of anything other than… THANK YOU Dan!”

“A job well done Dan. When I was first contacted about the opportunity with INDYCAR, I was quite happy with running my own law practice and had no plans to seek look for a new opportunity. However, the way you took a personal interest in the process and worked with me and INDYCAR to create a professional solution that fit both of our needs was outstanding. That personal touch and your desire and willingness to communicate openly made me very comfortable as we worked through the details.”

"Dan, thank you so much for your help and guidance throughout the process of searching for my next challenge. Timing is everything – when I initially reached out to you to see what opportunities were available, you immediately sent me the Senior Director, Partnership Activation posting for UFC. I think it was a version of my resume! While I was not an existing fan of MMA and UFC, your insight into the sport, the UFC and the enthusiasm around the new structure of the Global Partnerships Department, was a huge selling point. Your guidance during the interview process was greatly appreciated and your candid discussions about my personal growth sets you apart from others. I am thrilled to be a part of such an explosive and growing property – just where I wanted to be!"

His work is thorough and wide ranging to help find the best talent avaliable. I highly recommend him and his services to anyone who is looking for the next star on their staff.”

Dan was extremely helpful in making sure I was fully prepared. Along with his vast knowledge of what it takes to work in all areas of sports, he was excellent in making sure every little detail was covered. He even called me the day before my interview to prep and make sure I was ready. I can honestly say I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t meet Dan.

From the initial introductions, to interviews and reference checks, through compensation negotiations and relocation, Dan was vital in making sure all parties involved were happy with the outcome.
