Tony McKenna, Director Ingredients & China, Saputo Dairy Australia, formerly Chief Executive Officer BODCO

“I worked with Karin for 15 months in my role as CEO Bodco from April 2017 to July 2018.

BODCO was a start-up company and Karin was contracted to establish the companies HR policies and practices, work with the management team to develop recruitment practices, develop on-boarding processes, develop KPI’s with senior staff and commence the performance and development review process.

Establishing a new company has many challenges and particularly within the HR function. Karin showed her expertise and strong interpersonal skills through the many highs and lows the company and staff went through between March 2016 and June 2018.

I was very grateful of Karin’s ability to work strategically on one hand and also to get along and encourage fragile staff members on the other hand. She has very well developed all round HR capability and can lead and contribute effectively at the senior management level.

I would certainly recommend her to any without hesitation.”

Steve Smith, General Manager, The Westervelt Company

“Greg has handled the recruitment for The Westervelt Company for over ten years, and during that time, the company has diversified and grown steadily.  The only consistent thing has been the ongoing change!  The simplest way to describe the relationship, is that Greg operates as if he is an everyday part of the team.

He understands our business and when we need his services, and fits in seamlessly.  It is a relationship based on mutual trust and common understanding.  The communications between us are always open, honest and direct, which is refreshing and ensures that we save both time and potential frustration.   It is fantastic to have this resource available as required, particularly as Greg makes the recruitment process as painless as possible.

He understands what we need, and does the hard work behind the scenes, which makes it easier to stay focused on organisational priorities, rather than being dragged in to the detail of the process.  I have total confidence in Greg and his team, and greatly enjoy the interaction that we have and would have absolutely no reservation in recommending him to other companies.”

 

Bernie Crosby, Managing Director, Prolife Foods Ltd

“Prolife Foods’ obsession about growth, competitive advantage and service fulfillment is underwritten by the importance of people. Well structured strategy, well executed by outstanding people has been a tradition of our company and, for this to occur, empowered, capable people are the underlying enabling component. I, and other Executives, have used the expertise of Greg Tims in a variety of ways – from Executive recruitment where his ability to fit the person with the right attributes (values, personality and capability wise) is outstanding – to other initiatives including developing the values and behavioural model, Executive mentoring, strategic pay policy development and as a sounding board over the myriad of people issues that constitute business today. Without hesitation I recommend Greg and his Associates for their service, professionalism, judgement and understanding of our style, values and needs.”

David Downey, Chief Executive Officer of Perry Metal Protection and Aqualine

“I have known Greg for many years, and in that time he has ensured that only the right people with the right attitude have been successful in being appointed. Greg has an uncanny eye for talent and intuition for organisational fit, which has translated into tangible results.

Not only has Greg taken the time to understand our business and its culture today, but he makes placements based on both the capability for continuous improvement and cultural improvement that we want for tomorrow. As our HR business partner, when senior vacancies arise, Greg allows us to remain focused on the business while he and his team facilitate a robust selection process.

I find Greg and his team professional and easy to deal with, all the while relying on Greg’s expertise to deliver a seamless process and a high calibre placement each and every time.”

Richard Coventry, Chief Executive, Perry Group Limited

“The Perry Group is a privately owned business based in the Waikato with a strong culture of community and corporate responsibility that is central in the day to day business practices throughout the Group.

We began working with Greg Tims over three years ago to assist us in recruiting a high level management role at Head Office, and more recently a part time position.  From the start, Greg really took the time to understand our culture and business needs and approached the recruitment process with these needs in mind.  This in-depth understanding of our business really enabled us to recruit the people with the right cultural and capability fit.

Greg is always very professional and utilises his recruitment expertise to ensure a great result every time.”

Owen Embling, Managing Director, Convex Plastics

“In our business, as I think is the case for most organisations, solid relationships are the cornerstone of successful businesses. At Convex, we value  integrity and tenacity as two of the most important attributes when dealing with people. It is for this reason I find dealing with Greg and his business an absolute pleasure. Greg has never failed to exceed my expectations, his professionalism and business ethics have never been questioned, and his results have been exceptional.

I personally look forward to dealing with Greg with any of my recruitment programs and would recommend his business unequivocally”.

Alan Walters, Chief Executive, Timpack Industries

“Timpack has used Greg Tims for over 10 years as our trusted advisor on HR and recruitment matters. Greg understands our business intimately, and from this position, he is able to assist us to find good people who will not only fit with our culture, but also strengthen the Timpack team. Greg’s extensive HR knowledge and experience also gives him the ability to provide outstanding professional advice and service. I would recommend Greg unreservedly”.

Gregg Brown, Managing Director, Aber Holdings Ltd

“In 2006, I made a conscious decision to further improve our company’s performance with managing and developing staff. I was introduced to Greg and his team as our company was in a growth phase and recruiting. Our initial engagement was simply a placement for a new position. From that seemingly innocuously start, our relationship with Greg Tims and Associates has grown where today we can truly say he is a critical business partner of our business.

Greg has worked closely with myself on the development of our company’s cultural and organisational plan, consults with me on our HR strategy and undertakes all our recruitment. Greg and his team have a strong relationship with my Executives and works with them on a wide variety of matters from recruitment to personal development & training to strategic pay reviews. Greg’s approach to every job is totally professional and done in a efficient and reliable manner. Underpinning the quality of his delivery is the level of understanding he has of our culture and business, which ultimately ensures we recruit the right people to achieve both ours and their respective goals.

In summary, I simply believe Greg Tims & Associates are at the top of their field in Hamilton.”

Ian Palmer, Chief Operating Officer, Regal Group

“The Regal Group is a family owned business built on a shared vision and core values. It is imperative that the people we employ fit the values and vision for the business. We have used Karin Adams from Greg Tims and Associates for our recent recruitments, job evaluation/descriptions and remuneration reviews. We have been very happy with her understanding of our requirements, the services delivered, and the quality of applicants she has put forward. Karin simplifies the often complex world of HR and makes the processes for us easy and enjoyable. I would have no hesitation in recommending Karin to others.”

Gavin Ion, Chief Executive, Waikato District Council

Over the past twelve years I have worked with Greg Tims on a variety of human resource related matters. I continue to be impressed by Greg’s professionalism, perception, fairness and delivery of results on time, every time.
