Client Partner at CMK Select
I have had the pleasure of knowing Ed since 2005. Since that time I have seen Ed grow sales teams and recruiters to dramatic success in a very challenging staffing market place. Ed is a very strong and confident leader and truly has the best interest of his team and company on top of mind with all of his decisions. He leads his team from the front and is very strong at building client relationships. Ed has a very rare combination of technical and sales skills which allows him to help his team understand the challenges of the IT Staffing marketplace and his leadership is obvious in his interaction with upper management and his team.
Associate Account Executive, PR
Staci and I were introduced through a mutual, professional friend in July of 2016. I had worked with a number of different staffing agencies, and was beginning to think I’d never find a job as a new grad.
Most staffing agencies don’t take the time to get to know your needs personally past the first meeting, and tend to leave you circling the pool with other “candidates”. Staci from the moment I met her was encouraging, motivating, and HONEST. Staci gave me the one on one guidance I needed and walked me through every stop of the interview process, and through accepting my first job offer.
Whether it was 6 a.m. or 10 p.m., Staci never left me in the dark and kept me up to date on my status as a candidate. I didn’t have to wait days or weeks to hear back from her. She did an amazing job of making me feel competent and qualified, despite being a new graduate.
Needless to say, I would recommend Staci and Be Group, to employers and candidates on the hunt. My employer who hired me through Staci still talks highly of her experience. She knows what she’s doing. Staci has been there, done that, owned companies, worked in the field, and now works to pair job seekers with the right employers.
Bottom line, what makes Staci and Be Group stand out is genuineness. I hope I’ll never have to job seek again, but if I do, Staci will be my first call.
CEO at Herspiegel Consulting
Having known Ed for nearly 20 years, I am pleased to write this recommendation on his behalf. During the time that I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ed, I’ve always been extremely impressed by his exceptional management and leadership capabilities coupled with his unusual blend of hard work, professionalism and character. I’ve had the unique vantage point of having been both a co-worker and competitor, and with this perspective I’ve had the opportunity to see firsthand Ed’s commitment and dedication to satisfying the needs of his clients, his co-workers and his consultants. Perhaps most impressive is that with the dramatic changes that our industry has undergone during the past 20 years, Ed’s strategy and style have evolved and adapted to meet the new and unique challenges we now face.
Marketing Communications Associate at Safeguard Scientifics
Staci’s drive and enthusiasm is contagious. During my tenure at Slice Communications, she was the “people’s champ” — a compassionate leader with a work ethic everyone wanted to match. At Be Group, Staci has officially become a successful serial entrepreneur. Her intricate knowledge of the region’s business community puts her well above the competition. There’s a reason the Philadelphia Business Journal recognized her talent and influence in 2016.
Founder / CEO – Savvy Hires
Ed is a great leader and manager. I’ve learned a lot from Ed – most notable is him helping me become a more strategic thinker, and a better manager. He always tasks me with figuring out “what am I trying to solve” and fully defining the problem – he’s able to step back, look at a situation from 30,000 ft, and then dig in to the details to figure out which area we need to tackle first. In doing these exercises, Ed is never “telling” me the answer or how to think, but helping me naturally arrive at the conclusion through my own thought process, guiding me throughout the way. His style has helped me grow, and tackle situations/ problems in a more strategic way. One of Ed’s greatest strengths is creating loyalty amongst those around him. In the time we worked together, he created a culture of transparency, trust and support that is incredibly important in any organization.

She is approachable and generous with her time, knowledge and an amazing career mentor.

Enterprise Sales Director at Pure Storage
I had the pleasure of working with Staci on both the candidate and hiring sides of her business during a recent career search and subsequent staff buildout. Unlike many “recruiters”, where placements are just paychecks, Staci takes a strong personal interest in her clients unlike any other I’ve encountered.
In my situation, Staci took the time to fully understand my needs while being a great cheerleader throughout the entire journey…she was absolutely interested in my well being – regardless if I ended up taking the role that she was representing to me or not. Staci is a well connected networking queen, who possesses a rare combination of endless positive energy, intelligence, and care not found in her world (or most others for that matter!)
I highly recommend Staci for both employer and candidate engagements – all who come to know Staci ultimately become friends with her, and I am pleased to know and work with her.

I had the pleasure of being managed directly by Staci when she was my boss at Slice Communications. Her enthusiasm was contagious and she provided me with the tools I needed to be successful as a public relations account manager. Since our work together at Slice, Staci has continued to play a vital role in my professional career by serving as my mentor and trusted advisor. One of her biggest strengths is connecting people and fostering lasting relationships that are mutually beneficial for each organization. You can tell how passionate Staci is about her work from the first meeting.

I worked with Staci while job hunting for the position that I am currently in, and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.

She is incredibly passionate about her work and definitely looks out for her clients. I would absolutely recommend friends and colleagues to Staci if they’re looking for work, and have even done so on several occasions.

I first met Staci when I engaged Slice Communications to provide PR services for eMaint. From the first meeting, it was apparent that Staci brought skill, energy, and enthusiasm to the table. Over the course of the next several years, I also came to observe that Staci is very well connected in the Philly business scene. When I learned that Staci was forming Be Group, I knew that she would be a great resource for sourcing talent. To date, we have placed several positions through Be Group and have been extremely satisfied. To sum it up, Staci is a consummate professional who has an amazing entrepreneurial spirit and a wonderful way about her – I highly recommend her and Be Group.>

At Slice she helped us move GlobalFit forward and most recently at BE Group she facilitated the filling of a much need open position. You can count on her professionalism and great attitude.

No matter what she takes on she brings a combination of the two and delivers great results. You can go forward with certainty that retaining Staci is a win for you and your business.
