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.

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.
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.
Jeremy Eskenazi is one of the few corporate staffing consultants who worked on the inside AND actually “gets it!” He is adept at making the complex seem simple and always delivers a valuable end product. He is truly an expert in employment practices. His vision and cutting edge ideas have helped my organization establish a highly competitive technical hiring process. Through process efficiencies and technology integration, we significantly improved our abilities to find top talent.

Jeremy ‘gets it’ on all levels. He is a powerful presenter to Recruiters as well as to recruiting leadership. His practical approach and knowledge base are invaluable in helping organizations design, implement and measure recruitment functions. I highly recommend Jeremy!
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.
We utilized Jeremy Eskenazi to evaluate and restructure our corporate staffing function and processes. Jeremy is not only a successful business partner, but a successful business “player” as well. By this I mean he delves into the issues with the organization and makes our challenges, his challenges. In addition, he creatively and strategically analyzes the gaps, using theory and practical processes which results in useful staffing tools and very real applications.
