Joel Schneider, President, Liberty Technology Advisors, Inc.

Lorena has proven over and over to be a valuable and trusted resource for Liberty Technology Advisors.

Jerry Gore, CIO, CrossCom National:

While building a new IT department, I needed candidates with specific multiple skill sets. Even more challenging, they needed to align with our clearly-defined culture. Lorena took the time to understand our needs and our culture, screening countless candidates and delivering the talent I needed to build a high-performance team.

Tim Wolkober, Former VP Finance/CFO, The Morton Arboretum:

Lorena’s strengths emanate from her professional management experience, her specialization in technology recruitment, and her keen awareness of the importance of a proper fit for both the employee and the employer. Lorena interviewed me to understand not only our organization’s technical needs but also our organization’s culture, or personality, to ensure a successful fit for both the candidates and the Arboretum. The professionals that she matched with the Arboretum have become long-term employees. I highly recommend Lorena and LMB Associates.
