Jim GentryPreviously, Jim was Vice President, Human Resources with APEX Analytix, a software and consulting firm in Greensboro, NC. He also spent 13 years in Corporate Human Resources with Sara Lee Branded Apparel and another six years with Kayser-Roth Corporation in manufacturing and retail HR roles.

Relationships are the cornerstone of doing business with Gentry Executive Search.  We’re proud of the fact that every partnership we currently enjoy initiated with a referral from a current client, former colleague or an informal alliance with another consulting firm. Once we become partners, our clients repeatedly return to us for help in fulfilling their staffing needs.

While respectful of your staffing processes, we bring a consultative approach to each search, sharing best practices developed over the years. We understand the time demands and pressures the hiring process puts on your organization and work hard to grasp the full dynamics of the open position before starting the search. From there, we present a slate of carefully-filtered, qualified candidates and provide a detailed career summary highlighting accomplishments, salary history and considerations that impact their candidacy.  We are responsive and communicative with our candidates and relay feedback promptly and courteously.
