Client Testimonials

Our success speaks for itself.

“We have called upon the expertise of Horizon Executive Services twice over the past couple years to support Global’s growth through an expanded presence in Europe.  Fiona has been invaluable to our efforts not only in identifying highly-qualified candidates for our unique business development position, but in providing input on the marketplace and assistance on setting up a new office in Ireland.  Horizon brings a focused and professional approach that is tailored to the specific needs of their clients that compliments their deep industry and market knowledge to achieve a successful result.  I is always a pleasure to work with Fiona and Murrae and I would recommend their services to any potential client.”


Ken Moninski, CEO Global Aircraft Services Inc.

“It is my pleasure to recommend Horizon Executive Search, and Murrae Ross-Eskell in particular, for their work in search and placement at a variety of levels within the aviation (and related) industry.  As the former Head of HR for both a regional airline and a commercial aircraft leasing firm, I have had the pleasure of working with her for 4 years now, across two very different organizations, and have always been amazed at her ability to find the hidden gem of talent that is the optimal fit for the organization.

Horizon’s business focused approach allows the client the ability to stay as involved in the process as time and energy allow, without slowing the process.  In the last placement Murrae did for me, a Head of IT based in the United States, competing priorities made it difficult to interact regularly with the search team. However, based on the solid brief Horizon developed for the role with my input, Murrae and her team lost no time in finding me the perfect candidate within the pre-arranged time frame, and at the target compensation level – making the interview and offer process clean and the onboarding of the new executive quite easy.

If you are looking for a search firm who works as a partner, not as one who tells you what you can and cannot do, then Murrae and the team at Horizon Executive Search are the perfect match.  I look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.”

Kevin Horan, Senior Vice President, Seabury Human Capital

“Having used Horizon to manage the search for candidates for two new positions in the last six months, we are very pleased with the outcome, both in terms of the quality of candidates that were presented but also with the total package provided, the service is professional, discreet and tailored to meet the requirements we presented. I would have no hesitation in working with either Fiona or  Murrae again and would strongly recommend their services to others.”

Michael Moore – CFO & Head of Commercial Operations, Aergo Capital Ltd

“We have been thrilled to recently work with Fiona on a project to fill a key vacancy in our rapidly growing team. Horizon were able to deliver a top quality candidate in a very short time-frame. The process from first contact to contract signature was very well managed, both from our perspective and from that of the candidate. Fiona has an excellent sense for what individuals will fit into established teams and we have benefited greatly from her expertise. Horizon is thoroughly recommended – they always are at the top of their game.”

Dan Roberts – Chief Legal Counsel, Lobo Leasing

“Murrae has been retained by Menzies Aviation on various occasions to fill a senior role in Eastern Europe and for a major start up operation for Menzies Aviation in South Africa. We worked as partners to fill these important roles and during the process she was professional, communicated regularly and did as she promised whilst also being flexible in her fees and approach. Murrae was focused, supportive, candid, extremely professional and nothing was too much trouble. It was a pleasure to work with her and given another opportunity I would hope to work with her again in the future”

Forsyth Black, Managing Director, Menzies Logistics – Formerly SVP Africa & India, Menzies Aviation plc, South Africa

“Murrae provided excellent advice and guidance during a challenging period. She was also instrumental in identifying and delivering a timely personnel solution, which allowed the development of a strong, knowledgeable team.  I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to other potential clients.”
