Riviera Advisors came in as our project manager on a sizable implementation that required analysis of process, workflows, technology review and the like. They teamed with our business partners and vendors to ensure timely execution. Riviera managed the project and later identified a consultant to step in as interim Senior Director of Talent Acquisition to ensure we didn’t miss a beat. Riviera was instrumental in assisting us with our search to fill the position and would call upon Riviera Advisors again in a heartbeat.
Riviera Advisors has an intense drive to help organizations and people become the best at what they do. With a keen eye for talent, they ensure that strategic business initiatives are created and supported by the right people. They do not employ a one-size-fits-all approach, as she builds relationships with their clients to understand their unique needs and has the creativity to find new ways to solve old problems. They also have the intensity and passion to see their ideas through to fruition, as they are relentless once a key goal has been identified.
Jeremy is by far the best in the business. Jeremy has designed the talent strategy and related processes at two global companies for me. Jeremy’s work has assisted both companies in saving millions of dollars but more importantly getting the right employees and keeping them. I would strongly recommend Jeremy or his company to any organization who wants to attract and retain the best people.
With Jeremy’s amazing insight and robust experience from which he both draws from and is anxious to share, he provided my team with new insights which allowed them to think beyond our traditional recruiting strategy and achieve breakthrough results in hiring. These breakthroughs include better candidate quality and reduced cycle time through proactive recruiting research and a significant refinement of our consultative services.

In addition to a high level of need fueled by 20%+ annual growth, we have a diverse set of recruiting needs at James Hardie International; including scientists, engineers, sales, manufacturing line, and functional support staff. Jeremy Eskenazi helped us design and successfully and quickly build out our recruiting processes and team. As a result we’ve been able to respond to the intense staffing needs quickly and over a sustained period of time. Eskenazi’s technical skills and knowledge, creativity and ease to work with make him our first choice for staffing consulting needs.

I find Riviera to be very talented individuals, with a strong sense of clearly wanting to understand the client’s needs and wants.

I also find them to be great communicators, providing clear and concise communication to the client. Their work ethic, creativity in producing results, and their understanding of being fully ‘accountable’ makes them an asset to any client. They clearly has the ability to assist a client in achieving their initiative.
Never in our experience of working with consultants, have we worked with anyone as quick and competent as Riviera Advisors. Their ability to pick up the fine details of our business was nothing short of miraculous. We would hire them again and again.
No matter how experienced an HR professional, there is always a time when you need to do a reality check on your HR Staffing environment. Riviera Advisors enabled Availability Services to gather that information. Further that information was key to establishing a plan to enable “Staffing & Selection” to become an even better partner to our Hiring Managers. Most importantly, they shared our sense of urgency to keep the project on task. Their sense of urgency has been there throughout the process. I told them “You’ve been my HR Life Raft”.
