About Us

Candidate Testimonials

"I found Jack and his group at Probus to be very knowledgeable, thorough and helpful in my placement as CFO. His approach to serving his client's needs best was to help me understand my own needs and how the position was a good match for them. I recommend Jack and his team to any high-tech finance professional seeking to make a change."

Rick Van Hoesen
EVP Finance and CFO, Epocrates

"I have had the opportunity to work with Jack both as a candidate and as a client. Both experiences were excellent. Jack keeps the process clear and simple, he identifies and matches candidates to opportunities very well and deals only in the facts. There is no hyperbole. This allows you to move through the process efficiently and with no surprises."

Jim Mackaness
CFO, Iridex

"Jack McNeal and the entire Probus team were valuable in both my search as a candidate and in providing high caliber candidates to Pagemill Partners. The team is an excellent resource for high level finance and technology referrals. They have great experience and contacts and they provide exceptional support to hiring managers and candidates throughout the entire executive placement cycle. I consider them to be an important partner and it's a real pleasure to work with them."

Ellen Evlanova

"As a candidate, I have found Jack to possess an uncanny ability to identify and present opportunities that match my specific work objectives. He always takes the time to understand my needs and is able to clearly articulate the requirements of the position and details of the hiring firm. In addition, Jack is an excellent resource providing accurate and honest information regarding the job market, compensation, and industry environment. For nearly 20 years, Jack has been a trusted resource that I've replied upon during all of my job search campaigns."

Doug Rainforth
Operations Controller, Hansen Medical

"I have worked with the Probus team as both a candidate and a client and have been impressed by their thoroughness and attention to detail. I found them to be very helpful in my placement as CFO at JasperSoft and with their counseling on several occasions during my first year on the job. Subsequently, I had the pleasure of hiring my controller through Probus and was equally satisfied. I recommend them highly."
