Christine Appleton was relentless in our search for our Director E-Commerce. We had a very specific list of needs and a rather large list of "wants". Christine took our entire wish list and brought forth candidates that were knowledgeable in E-Commerce as well as in retail. We were able to put out an offer and fill this difficult position, thanks in most to Christine's dedication, persistence and strong networking skills.
