"Wes was very proactive with us. He noticed a general advertisement we had for a Portfolio Manager position and called to introduce us to a very strong candidate - one who we likely would never have found without his services. Wes is very straightforward, quick to respond and fair to deal with. I would recommend his services to any bank in Iowa in need of good lending candidates."
Pat D. - EVP, Senior Lending Officer
“I recently worked with Wes Schulte and Schulte & Associates regarding an addition to my Business Banking staff. Wes was extremely prepared when calling me to present information. He took the time to talk through exactly what I was looking for in a candidate as well as presented to me the positives of the candidate he was working with, and why that person would be a great fit for my sales team. Wes’s follow-up was professional and not at all over-bearing. When asked to follow-up with me on certain dates, he was responsive.
I really appreciated the fact that Wes took the time to analyze my needs as the hiring manager, and wasn’t just trying to push the candidate onto me. Wes was patient with my time line, and maintained a professional conversation with me throughout the process. I would absolutely utilize Schulte and Associates for new transactions and would be happy to refer them to my colleagues in the future.”
Stacia P. - VP, Business Banking Team Manager
"Wes approached me about a job opportunity he thought I would be perfect for and as it turned out he was right! I would not have found this opportunity without his services and most importantly this opportunity brought me closer to home, which meant more time to spend with my family. Wes always knows what his client needs are and incorporates that with career opportunities he presents to his potential candidate clientele, which keeps him one step ahead of his competition. I strongly recommend using Schulte & Associates for any future career move you might be planning in the financial industry”.
Mike H. - Commercial Portfolio Manager
“When I learned I would have to relocate from my position in Business Banking in Southwest Florida to St Louis, MO, I knew I would need the assistance of a recruiter. The economic environment was/is extremely challenging and I needed to land a Business Banking position in a market I had never worked in before. Wes and several other recruiters were recommended but very quickly I determined Wes was the only one I wanted working for me. He took my resume and enhanced the content and presentation. Then he set up four interviews and followed up with me after every interview and provided immediate feedback from every bank I met with.
It was only due to his persistence and follow up was I able to obtain a position. Wes truly cares about the people he is representing and will go to great lengths to help someone.”
Karen B. - VP, Business Banking Officer
“I thought Schulte & Associates was very helpful in finding a new employer. I felt that I was at an advantage going into the interview since I had been recommended by someone that that the employer trusted to help them find qualified individuals. It was also great that I could consult with you on questions and concerns I had about changing employers. Overall I would say you made switching employers go very smoothly and I greatly appreciated your service.”
Jeff K. - Mechanical Engineer
"Wes is thoughtful, considerate and professional. He is a superb executive search professional who represents his clients very well. I would recommend him to any financial services person seeking a new position."
