Our experience with Jeff and Marquee Search was phenomenal – seamless, efficient, and most importantly, effective. Jeff took the time, even before the engagement, to get to know our organization, both in terms of culture and strategic objectives, and had a well formulated point of view on the kinds of candidates to target. Once the engagement formally kicked off, he was more than consultative – we truly interacted as if he were one of us, a part of our team, and that’s a tribute and credit to the energy, enthusiasm, and diligence he brought to the process. The result was a compelling pool of candidates that met all of our criteria, which enabled us to pick the individual that was truly the best fit.

Jeff Yocom and Marquee Search understand how to turn a job search into a partnership. Jeff takes the time to deep dive into your company’s culture, values, and needs. His search will be conducted with the highest level of professional integrity and the pipeline of talent he presents will be top notch. I truly value his advice and have come to him prior to creating a position to understand the marketplace. Thank you Jeff for all you have done for the San Jose Earthquakes!

Jared Shawlee, Chief Operating Officer - San Jose Earthquakes

I had the pleasure of working with Jeff Yocom to fill the key role of VP of Corporate Partnerships for The Oakland Raiders. His personal commitment to the search was evident from day one. Jeff spent a lot of time and energy upfront to get to know me, the team and the organization at large. He didn’t hand me a predetermined “list” of candidates he was going to contact for the role. He asked a lot about the organization’s new structure and worked hard to identify and vet each candidate and their references before he brought them to our attention. The result was a solid list of strong candidates and high quality interviews that made our decision a lot tougher than we had hoped, but we know we found a great fit for years to come.

Mark Shearer, Oakland Raiders

Jeff has been a fantastic resource over the past few years. Jeff truly takes the time to learn about our company and team culture, as well as the requirements of the position we are hiring for. I can always count on Jeff to deliver candidates who are the perfect fit – we actually hired the top 2 candidates from our most recent search! Marquee Search provides a valuable service to the sports industry and I highly recommend Jeff to anyone in need of executive search services.

Erin Vagley, VP of Administration Seattle Sounders FC

We had an awesome experience working with Jeff Yocom of Marquee Search for our hire of a new Director of Major Gifts. I hired another firm for a previous search, and the experience utilizing Jeff’s services was night and day better. He provided great analysis of candidates, coaching, and top of the line prospects. His communication was excellent throughout the search process. We hired a very qualified individual. I will DEFINITELY utilize Jeff for any needed hires in the future!

Debbie Hesse, Executive Director USA Swimming Foundation

I have known Jeff Yocom for several years and have worked with him on multiple occasions in the sports and entertainment business, both when hiring as a sales manager and more recently when I was recruited for my current position with the Green Bay Packers. During my many interactions with him, Jeff has always impressed me with his consummate professionalism.

During the fall of 2014, Jeff reached out to gauge my interest in the Director of Sales position with the Green Bay Packers. I soon committed myself to the interview process and Jeff could not have been more helpful throughout. He made himself available at every turn for questions, advice and coaching. We were operating from different time zones but it didn't matter if I needed something early in the morning or late at night, Jeff was always there to offer counsel.

The opportunity Jeff presented to me was a great fit and I accepted the position in late December 2014 to lead the Packers’ sponsorship sales team. The experience has been rewarding and fulfilling, while offering new challenges and opportunities for career growth. Now that we've had the chance to settle into the Green Bay community, I believe we've found an ideal long term home for our family.

I strongly recommend Jeff Yocom and Marquee Search for your recruitment needs, whether you're looking for a job in the sports and entertainment business or hiring his firm to represent your search.

Chad Watson, Director of Sales and Business Development, Green Bay Packers

Jeff set the standard of what to expect in working with an executive search company. Marquee Search was thorough, responsive and brought us an incredibly talented candidate pool for our Communications & PR Director position. When hiring a position, you always hope to have a tough decision among a field of great candidates and that’s exactly what happened. I sleep well at night knowing he brought us not only the best candidates, but all of them were thoroughly vetted for their experience and their motivations. I won’t hesitate to work with Jeff and Marquee Search again in the future.

Matt Farrell, USA Swimming

The Packers have been approached by several firms, but we have consistently chosen to work with Jeff because of the quality candidates he presents.

Tim Connolly, Formerly Green Bay Packers

Jeff’s tenacity, follow-up, and network created through years of experience in our industry, as well his professional approach, confidentiality and integrity, made him a real asset through the start-up of our organization. He truly identified individuals who we would have been hard pressed to find on our own. Truly a valuable service and a real asset to our efforts, and someone I recommend highly.

Alan Ledford, MountainStar Sports Group

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jeff on several occasions during my tenure in the sports industry. His attention to detail, sincere interest in meeting our needs, and the level of professionalism with which he consistently displays has allowed him to continuously exceed expectations. Jeff is one of the best at what he does, and an individual that I know will always go above and beyond when called on. He’s a talent and a great asset to the sports industry.

Ryan Barefoot, Denver Broncos

Jeff adds great value to any search process. He always delivered strong candidates we never would have identified on our own. When we worked with Jeff, we always ended up with an exceptional candidate who came on board and made an immediate impact.

Brendan Donohue, formerly Atlanta Hawks

Marquee Search has played a critical role in helping us to grow our live events team. Our first search with Jeff Yocom was eighteen months ago, and we have subsequently hired three more candidates that Jeff has brought to us since then. He’s taken the time to understand our business and our culture and has therefore brought to us the right kind of candidate for each position. Jeff hit the mark on every project – bringing us top tier talent that has helped Townsquare grow our entertainment footprint.

Dhruv Prasad, Townsquare Media Group

I recently worked with Jeff Yocom to complete a search for a Corporate Partnerships role that we had been looking to fill. It was a pleasure working with Jeff throughout the process. He quickly understood the type of person we were looking for, both from a skillset and personality perspective, and it was clear he had the experience and contacts to fill the role in a timely manner. Jeff had a communication style that I appreciated, keeping me up to date, while also allowing me to stay focused on the other priorities on my end. We filled the role fairly quickly, and we are incredibly happy with the candidate we chose. We will happily turn to Jeff again as soon as we have another opening to fill.

Jamey Sunshine, Formerly Lagardère Unlimited

Thanks to Jeff Yocom and Marquee Search, Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) has timely filled the Executive Director positions as we expanded into new business territories during the past few months. Jeff not only understands PCA business model, but more importantly he understands PCA mission that necessitates the type of leaders required for the Executive Director positions. Jeff produces quality candidates and as an extension of PCA, Jeff represents PCA well and handles the candidates with care. It's been a pleasure working with Jeff and Marquee Search.

Heana Simpson, Positive Coaching Alliance

Jeff has always been at the top of the list when it came to finding the best candidates in the sports and entertainment world. I have hired his candidates into Sr. Director and Director roles all across the country while at Live Nation Entertainment, and also worked with him on the other side of the table when he placed me in my current role overseeing the Entertainment & Hospitality business at Intersport in Chicago. He has a fantastic rolodex of candidates, is always very thorough in getting to know exactly what is important for each search, and is a great communicator with both the candidates and the companies that are searching for them. He will continue to be my first phone call whenever I have an open senior or mid-level position that needs to be filled with the best candidate.
