Tim Noble has a deep understanding of supply chain and business operations, which I’ve found rare with recruiters. His expertise in finding top talent quickly, interested in private equity, made a big difference in helping us achieve our objectives.
Tim helped us recruit a distribution vice president, Six Sigma systems executive, and 2 process engineers. I was impressed with Tim’s understanding of our business needs, the candidate’s responsibility, and the necessary skills to be successful. These candidates’ Lean/Six Sigma expertise made them leaders in the digital transformation our business would go through, which wouldn’t have been possible without Tim.
The candidates Tim placed were all promoted and/or had expanded responsibilities within 1-2 years. I’m confident Tim will continue to be a strong partner because of the research he does in supply chain trends like Industry 4.0’s impact on talent.
Tim Noble has been my ‘go-to-guy’ for the past 7 years whenever I’ve needed the very best ‘Lean/Six Sigma Ops leaders for my own team. I’ve also referred him to my COO and many others who are looking to add new leaders with the full suite of lean competencies, proven operations experience, and strategic leadership.
Since I started working with Tim and the Avery Point Group, I’ve put 12-15 lean leaders (Manager to Sr Director Level) onto my teams at critical times. The value they added to my company, my colleagues, and to my professional success is impossible to overestimate. Tim’s many years of hands-on LSS operations leadership is evident in how he vets candidates and advises my internal recruiters and HR partners along the way. He’s invested more than any other recruiting firm I’ve ever used in getting to know my company’s culture, strategy, and internal partners to ensure we get exactly the right fit.
He continues to be a great advisor on changes in industries and technologies affecting lean practitioners and my workforce overall. I’ve never gotten this level of expertise and commitment from anyone else claiming to understand my “talent needs.”
I have been hiring in the lean/six sigma/continuous improvement space for a decade, and what Tim Noble and Avery Point Group provide stands out in the recruiting space.
His work experience in the LSS space gives him an inside track to the different types of focus within the industry. He also does an amazing job capturing voice of customer (no surprise given his background) from the hiring manager and tailoring the search to find the right candidates.
Massively thankful for the wonderful partnership with Tim Noble and Avery Point Group!
In a more than challenging environment for new hires, now but especially during the pandemic, The Avery Point Group and particularly Tim Noble has come through for me personally and for my company in several occasions.
Tim has helped fill crucial positions for my organization, both in purely Manufacturing positions as well as support functions such as HR, Finance, Quality, etc.
I strongly recommend Tim Noble and the Avery Point Group.
Tim Noble worked with us to find an experienced Master Black Belt in the winter/spring of 2021. For context, the last one we recruited on our own took nearly a year to find, and the fit wasn’t quite right, so we ended up hiring a contractor as well.
Then we engaged Tim and the Avery Point Group. He listened very carefully to our needs. We talked a few times, and once he felt confident he knew what we wanted in a candidate, he went to work. He identified over 60 potential candidates and narrowed it down to 8 that we screened through HR. My team interviewed 5 candidates, and we found one that fit our needs perfectly and has been doing exceptionally well over the past nearly two years since he’s been with us.
I have already recommended Tim Noble and the Avery Point Group to my colleagues. You can’t go wrong if you need a CI expert!
Tim Noble and The Avery Point Group do an amazing job working with and for their clients. They develop a long-term relationships with their clients, do their due diligence in getting to know the company, the structure, and the people at the organization so they can match the best candidates for the roles. We have had numerous successful placements through this group. Highly recommend Tim and The Avery Point Group as a partner for your recruiting needs.
I recommend Tim Noble as a person with a great background and deep expertise in Lean, Six Sigma, and recruiting solutions. Tim is a multi-skilled perfectionist. He demonstrated his capability of adapting to new industries and working environments by succeeding on our search assignments when other recruiters had previously failed.
I had the good fortune to work with The Avery Point Group during my transition into the Private Manufacturing Sector. Tim Noble was with me every step of the way and guided the interview process with care and determination. Due to the leadership requirements of the position, both parties needed assurance that qualifications, scope, and skillsets were a perfect match. During the interview process, Tim worked tirelessly to foster a relationship between the leadership team and I, which made the transition seamless from day one. Switching careers from 10 years at a Fortune 500 Company to Privately held Manufacturing was not an easy move, considering the vast differences in business strategies and cultures. However, Tim was able to stitch together the small details while staying in sight of the end goal.
Shortly after onboarding, we consulted The Avery Point Group to fill another critical role within our team. Tim was faced with similar challenges, attempting to pull senior talent from a tight labor market in a Fortune 500 space. After months of perseverance and dialing in the recruitments, he succeeded. Our business is now primed for the next chapter of growth, and we couldn’t have done it without The Avery Point Group.
I have had the great pleasure of Tim Noble and his firm, The Avery Point Group finding the position perfect for me! Tim worked with both my employer and me to ensure the match was perfect. I have had great transformational success with my new company. I wouldn’t have found this great opportunity without Tim’s professional knowledge of continuous improvement and his leadership skills to negotiate the right offer!
I recommend Tim Noble and The Avery Point Group for any recruiting needs!
Tim Noble was instrumental in recruiting me for my current role as AVP of Productivity and Strategy. Tim’s is very knowledgeable regarding Lean Six Sigma roles and matching a candidate’s skills with an employer’s needs. I have worked in the field of continuous improvement for almost 40 years and many recruiters. I found it refreshing to work with a recruiter with a deep understanding of this field. I rate him #1 and highly recommend his services and The Avery Point Group.
I met Tim Noble several years ago when he helped place me in my first-ever healthcare industry role. Little did I know that this “random phone call” would change the trajectory of my career in ways that I couldn’t have imagined. Tim is well-known in the operational excellence industry and is highly regarded for his deep expertise and broad-reaching network.
What sets Tim apart from other recruiters is his keen ability to match client requirements and candidate skills/personality to ensure there is a mutual fit. I continue to stay in touch with Tim as he always makes himself available for questions, advice, and an occasional request for candidate marketing feedback. I highly recommend Tim Noble and The Avery Point Group as a “trusted advisor.”
Many thanks for Tim Noble’s great support in working with me to secure my role as Director of Global Sourcing with my new organization. His insights into the company, the pace, and the needs that they had were critical for me in making the move from Stanley Black & Decker Inc. to this smaller company successful and rewarding. His follow-up and communication were excellent and made the transition easy.
I wish Tim Noble and the Avery Point Group all the success in fulfilling others’ career dreams and desires. Your ability to match a candidate to a role is expectational. Thanks again for helping me make the step in the right direction in my career.
Tim Noble is one of the best recruiters I have ever worked with lots of knowledge about manufacturing industries. He is very thorough in everything he does and always open for discussion and feedback.
I never thought lean and Six Sigma methodologies along with value stream mapping can be used in the interview process, but I was thrilled with the level of conversation we had during the process, which not only helped me understand the role better, but I could check all my boxes of requirements as we moved forward. Overall, I am very happy to land my dream job and had a very smooth process from start to end.
I highly recommend Tim Noble and would be happy to work with again in the future.
Tim and the team at the Avery Point Group are focused on matching the individual with the organization’s culture. He took the time to understand my interests and goals along with my Lean experiences. The CI conversations with Tim were fluent because of his lean knowledge and his understanding of the value this approach can have with an organization. I would highly recommend the Avery Point Group to those CI professionals seeking new career opportunities.
Working with Tim was a fantastic experience from start to end. Tim and his company (The Avery Point Group) truly define professionalism and integrity in the recruiting industry. Tim always provided consistent and honest feedback when available and I would gladly work with him again in the future!
