"Chris is a pleasant surprise. We kept in touch in 2012. He found me through the blog I keep on the internet when he was researching about Brazil. On occasion we talked a lot about the emerging markets and the impact of regulatory movements in Europe, more specifically on Solvency II. Besides being quite updated on the themes of nature actuarial he proved a deep knowledge of emerging markets. His interest in Brazil, China and Latin America is surprising, fact that gives credibility to the work he performs. I appreciate your recommendation."

“Christian has a tremendous ability to spot, assess and build relationships with top innovation talent. Creative in his approach, he stands out by being the most personable and genuine executive search professional I have ever come across. His approach to connecting talent with opportunity is tailored, and one has a real sense he knows the industry and its people. If that were not enough, Christian has a  supreme professional ethic which I most thoroughly appreciate.”​

“Late last year I worked with Christian Shanahan to start building RGA Asia’s new innovation team based in HK.  Christian was instrumental in helping me and others understand the type of person needed in innovation. Christian was also very clear in his 

communication and recommendations.  He is in it for the long term.  

The last point is Christian was quite creative himself.  He helped us design the best interview day I’ve ever been a part of.  It involved presentations, 1-1 interviews, and a group project.”​

"This is not your everyday Recruitment Company. They go out of their way to understand the client needs and provide solutions. They do not recommend what they want you to have but provide you with what you need. They are the epitome of professionalism, courtesy and reliability. I would have no hesitation in recommending Shanahan for your business needs. Christian himself is a personable, dependable individual and if you can't get on with him, then you can't get on with anyone."
