Senior Manager, Human Resources, Environmental Health Company

"I cannot thank Michael and the rest of the staff of Mackey & Guasco enough. I first met with Michael in January of this year, and he was both professionally and sincerely invested in helping me find a position from the start. It wasn't long before Mike had helped placed me in a position I enjoyed. Mike also frequently checked in on me, making sure that I still found the job fulfilling. I would still be using his services if not for my upcoming move. You cannot find a better recruiter than Michael Mazzabufi."

Service Support Specialist, Chemical Corporation

"Luisa is well connected in the HR field in Fairfield County. She does an excellent job of representing her clients and candidates. Luisa helped me land a position with Diageo by getting me to focus and refine my skills and resume when returning to the workforce. Because of the position at Diageo, I was able to springboard into my current position at Hewitt Associates."

Senior Compensation Analyst, Consulting Firm

"Lu is an astute humanistic manager who truly understands the intricacies in the job market today. She intuitively understands the needs of both employer and the job seeker. Lu gained my respect as she creatively assessed my unique circumstances and background. As a newcomer to Fairfield County, I appreciated the collaborative way that she worked with me."

Project Coordinator, Manufacturing Firm

"I moved back to CT and I registered with Mackey & Guasco. I came in to meet them and was impressed by their friendliness and professionalism. They found me a contract position within a couple of weeks!! They were a lifesaver and became my friends for life."

Payroll Tax Manager, Industrial Manufacturer

"Lu is one of the best in the business. I have worked both for her as an employee and with her as a client -- both experiences have been invaluable to me. Lu creates an environment within Mackey and Guasco that is cooperative, professional and productive yet she's a manager and mentor that never loses touch with the human side of caring for her own."

Recruiter, Global Food & Beverage Company

"I know Lu over ten years and have had the pleasure of working with her as both a client and a candidate. She takes the time to really understand your goals and priorities before making recommendations. She has excellent judgement and is one of the most professional people in the Human Resources placement industry. If you are going to go to only one source for your HR recruiting needs it should be Lu Guasco."
