"Perry is a very committed and driven partner and it was a pleasure to know him and work with him at X0pa Ai. He has strong industry knowledge and especially a strong understanding of the recruiting landscape. It was a pleasure to know and work with Perry!"


“One of those rare partners you wish everyone could be - one of the very best that you want to use exclusively and selfishly. Perry and his team opened up avenues to Europe, Asia, and also the Australian markets that have allowed us to do business in markets we couldn't possibly have even dreamt about until we crossed paths a year ago. Not only were we introduced to new markets but new industries as well, …..  and made time to educate me and my team on the correct approach and strategies and at the same time provide motivation and good guidance in equal measure.” 

"I had the pleasure of engaging Perry in an executive search. He fully understood our business and the profile we were looking for to take our business to the next step and present the best-in-market. I would recommend Perry for his professionalism and execution, and for representing our organization at the highest level."

"Highly dedicated, energetic, and effective professionals very instrumental in driving business results and influencing others in the process. I am extremely impressed by the contemporary approach and deep industry perspectives brought to the table during our various discussions. ….always on the lookout for creative out-of-the-box solutions….. drawing on a wealth of business successes and endeavors over many years of experience and market cycles. Perry’s valuable insights in my view are critical to the success of a client's organization during these turbulent times.”

"I have been a candidate of Perry Barrow once and I previously worked with him when I was hiring myself for previous teams and was duly impressed both times with Perry's professional recruitment acumen, advice and follow-up. In a professional services business where follow-up and client engagement matters Perry was outstanding. I highly recommend Perry to future candidates and employers alike"
