Cogent Staffing has become our go to source for staffing needs in virtually all departments.  From management to sales to operations Andrew and his team consistently brings us qualified candidates.  Over the years, Andrew Kaufman has taken the time to become familiar with our corporate culture which allows him to bring candidates who are not only technically skilled but also likely to thrive in our organization.

ROY T. President

I retained Cogent Staffing Solutions to help me hire accounting staff at my company and they did a great job. They identified candidates that were uniquely qualified - candidates that were not actively searching and who didn't have resumes posted on the job boards. They provided detailed, concise backgrounds on each of the candidates and managed the interviewing process efficiently. They were great with feedback and follow-up.

IVAN R. Director

I have known Andrew Kaufman (the Principal) for 16 years. He is one of the best resources a person or business could utilize. When I first met him, I was the CFO of a fast-growing business in Maryland. Andrew saved me by helping me hire 10 team members in my accounting department – all very high-quality individuals. Andrew is extremely professional and knowledgeable of both the industry and community. He always delivers.

GLEN P. Chief Financial Officer

It is rare that you come across a recruiter like Andrew Kaufman at Cogent Staffing Solutions. Andrew has been recruiting for our company for over 15 years. He not only finds the person with the right skillset, he finds the person that will fit the company’s culture. With every recruit for us, Andrew has knocked it out the park. Fifty percent of our current management staff has been from Andrew’s handy work. Andrew is a big part of our success.

MARINA C. Human Resources Manager

Andrew Kaufman (the Principal) is a dedicated professional who is able to clearly understand the needs of both the client and the candidate.
