“During the entire process with SCM Talent Group, we felt they were open to listening and ensuring they were on the right path towards finding the right candidates for our open position. From the introductory call to communication during the process, we felt they were very accommodating and open to all our feedback.  They were prompt and detailed with all candidate information and would assist in scheduling interviews in a timely manner.  Their follow up after interviews was prompt, and we felt we could be transparent with them regarding candidate feedback.”


Sheree Lauer, Associate Director of Recruiting/HR Department, SusieCakes Bakeries

“Given the market demand for Procurement professionals, I did some research on firms who I thought could help us. I reached out to SCM Talent Group and spoke with Emily who was very knowledge and easy to talk to. We had several meetings with PCM leadership to discuss salary, the market conditions and timeline. With Emily’s guidance, we convinced leadership to pivot and make our positions remote. After that change, Emily placed two highly qualified candidates in a very short time. We have been impressed with the communication, knowledge of the market and overall kindness of SCM Talent Group. I would highly recommend working with them on your PCM needs.”


Timothy Staley, Talent Acquisition Manager, AARP

“In my career, I have had the opportunity to work with several professional recruiters as both a candidate and client, and among those professionals Rodney Apple stands out. He displays the very best of what you expect and need as a candidate and business partner; knowledge of the business, a strong network and a commitment to get the job done. Finally, what distinguishes Rodney above all is his character, ethics and integrity, they are beyond reproach and I recommend him unconditionally.”


Vice President of Supply Chain, The Home Depot

“Supply Chain is one of the few areas at Berlin where we utilize outside search. We originally had a partner that we were/are very happy with, but that firm was at capacity, so we needed some more help. SCM Talent Group was a known entity to one of our HR Business Partners, so we set up a meeting with their Founder and Managing Partner. Right from the beginning, I knew we had another rock-solid partner. SCM Talent Group’s staff have been in the Supply Chain space for a very long time, so it was very easy for them to understand exactly what we were looking for. Our hiring managers have a great relationship with Jordan West in particular, who has been a joy to work with not only because he is smart and on the ball, but brings them great talent in the toughest market on record. I would highly recommend SCM Talent Group for any Supply Chain or Quality search needs! SCM Talent Group will be partners with Berlin for a very long time.”


Jill Perlstein, Director of Talent Management, Berlin Packaging

“I had the pleasure of working with Dallas Lovett from SCM Talent Group and am thrilled to have him in my network now. For many months, I was the only in-house Talent Acquisition Specialist, juggling a high requisition load in an unprecedented, hot market. With several niche demand planning roles, and a lengthy wish list of required skills from the hiring manager, I needed sophisticated help, fast!Right from the start, SCM Talent Group and Dallas were unique. The professional, succinct intake call with probing questions resulted in clear expectations and processes from the start. Dallas’ flexibility to meet with candidates was unmatched, as were his thoughtful assessments of the talent presented. Also noteworthy, was his desire to truly understand our company culture and mission. Market updates throughout the process were also helpful to the hiring team.I was able to focus on right-sizing other teams during a period of rapid growth, fully confident that Dallas and SCM Talent Group were excelling in providing the high caliber candidates needed. Another bonus – the discerning hiring manager quickly came to respect and request Dallas’ services! Recruiting firms are a dime a dozen, but true partnerships with a firm are rare – this is what you’ll enjoy with SCM Talent Group. They became an extension of our team and I highly recommend their services to any organization.”

“The process was seamless and very simple for both our company and the new hire. We truly enjoyed working with Jessica as she was very diligent, professional, and had great communication skills.  She was very open to all feedback and remained focused on our search. We were attempting to fill a very difficult role in a challenging market all while doing it confidentially. Our company felt it was best to connect with an agency who supported our search criteria and would be able to understand our challenges. We were able to fill our role after starting our search in April of 2022, and now have someone in role prior to the start of 2023 which will now allow us to operate more efficiently for our bakery locations.”

“I highly recommend working with SCM Talent Group, and especially Emily! I researched several supply chain recruiting firms before setting up an intro call and ultimately selecting to partner with SCM to help fill Procure4’s open positions.  I had the pleasure of working with the recruiter, Emily, and cannot recommend her enough!  She took the time to fully understand our business and the specific qualifications and qualities we were looking for in candidates to fill our open roles.  She is knowledgeable, dependable, and extremely responsive.  She consistently brought us qualified candidates and was always open to our feedback regarding her candidate submittals.  These candidates often made it through the first, second, and third round of our interview process – with 1 accepting an offer and already proving to be an asset to the team, despite only being here less than a month.  We look forward to working with SCM again in the future as our hiring needs arise.”

Bailey Hudgens, HR Coordinator, Procure4

I’ve had great experiences with SCM both as a candidate and a hiring manager. In comparison with other recruiting firms, SCM takes more time to understand the needs of both parties to ensure a good fit. The recruiter I’ve worked with (Emily) is great to work with and always communicates regularly to stay aligned on progress. I am now a part of the strongest team I’ve had in my career and SCM talent has played a large role in that!


Human Resources & Talent Acquisition Manager, Consumer Goods / Electronics Company

I have worked with Emily Unger and the team at SCM for the past year. SCM is the ultimate partner in recruiting strong procurement talent. They listen to the client and to the candidate and do a great job meeting expectations for all parties involved. They provide timely and meaningful feedback to the client about market conditions and other factors that influence the candidate’s interest and availability. I have complete trust in their recommendations and they have provided extremely talented individuals for very niche roles.

Rodney was able to find ample candidates across multiple levels and industry disciplines which created a diversified team balanced by similar cultural backgrounds.

Rodney is one of the most respected, highly experienced, and well-networked recruiters I know. His recruiting skills are top level and I consider him to be a rock-solid, “A-player”. Building expertise and deep knowledge in the supply chain recruiting function has given Rodney the ability to quickly network, source, evaluate, and bring to the table top talent for his clients, especially in very challenging environments. He’s successfully managed very high volume requisition loads and challenging projects while representing the entire supply chain function as a Talent Acquisition Partner from a strategic business partner perspective, all with impressive results. Rodney has a strong entrepreneurial focus and tenacity that allows him to effectively consult with clients and manage all recruiting efforts for the business units he supports, both at the corporate and field levels.

After joining Home Depot, Rodney became a partner as we worked to build out my team. I found him to be consistently pleasant, tackling all assignments with dedication and a smile. Besides being a joy to work with, Rodney is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. He successfully developed several candidate slates of potential professionals to join our company that resulted in me having one of the strongest teams I ever worked with during my corporate career.
