"Occasionally you'll run into someone who is extraordinary, not just in what they do, but in who they are. Shane is one of the rare few I've met who generates financial, relational and emotional equities on many levels in every circumstance. He is truly a great man and I wouldn't hesitate to put him in front of anyone I know, for any reason, at any time."

Frank Tirelli

CEO and Board Director

“Shane Mincer is a unique talent. Not only would I classify him as a real subject matter expert in the professional services industry, especially CPAs and attorneys, but he is also clearly a trusted business advisor to many senior executives in that industry. I dealt extensively with Shane when I was with Deloitte US on the West Coast, he was my main source of high-level talent. When I return to the US after spending 10 years with Deloitte Italy, Shane was one of the first professionals I contacted to discuss ideas around my next steps in the marketplace. In summation he has been a trusted advisor to me both in terms of talent acquisition but also as a sounding board for my career moves.”

Kent Wisner

Vice President, Global Tax at Alvogen

"Shane represented me in my search for a new position at a global law firm. He uncovered opportunities that I would not have known about, and was a true business partner in the search and decision making about my next professional step. He was diligent, professional, knowledgeable, relentless, persistent, and responsive during the process which covered several months. In the end, he connected me with an opportunity I would have missed without his help, and has helped me make the move to my next set of challenges and opportunity with good sense and good humor. I highly recommend Shane."
