Harald Suchanka
Vice President Sales & Operations

We worked with Leemor on the recruitment of a Managing Director position for our company in Israel. From Leemor and her team we received the best service with highest professional expertise, outstanding dedication and guidance.


Erik Steiner
Managing Director
Sonova Israel

Leemor and her excellent team worked with us to hire our Director of Finance as well as our Director of Human Resources following our company's acquisition by Sonova. Even though our requirements were extremely challenging, Leemor identified and presented several highly qualified candidates on every occasion, handheld us through the process and continuously exuded professionalism at the highest expected level. I could not have imagined a better structured process - and the final hiring decisions were superb in both cases. Much thanks for a job well done, we will definitely return for future hiring needs.


Andrew Bates
Vice President Human Resources, Southern & Eastern Europe
Pharmaceuticals Europe

I have been extremely impressed by the service provided by Machnai Weiss. Leemor & her team combine international standards of professionalism & confidentiality with a deep insight into and ability to attract high caliber candidates within the Israeli market. Customer care and candidate care are outstanding. I would recommend Machnai Weiss to any multi national company seeking to recruit a senior executive in Israel.


Pinny Chaviv

I worked with Leemor several times recruiting executive level employees. Leemor has the ability to become a team member during the recruiting process – she works with all constituencies (management, board, peers) to determine the optimal job description, manages the process in and out of the company, sets and meets time schedules and, most important, she does not hesitate to change course during the process if new data suggests so. In several occasions these qualities resulted in candidates that were not within the original scope of search. This, subsequently, resulted in a very good contribution to the company.


Einav Barkani
Vice President Human Resources EMIA &APAC
Teva Pharmaceutical Industries

Leemor is well connected, with creative thinking and ability to address issues that require international knowledge. Also, Leemor is very trustworthy and an expert in her field.


Sari Prais
Vice President Human Resources

Leemor’s professionalism, integrity and deep understanding of the company are what differentiate her from her peers.  Working with her is a pleasure because she combines honesty with a warm and winning manner.  This enables her not only to place the right candidates in the right company, but helps manage the process in a way where you know that the end result is the best one.  I would choose her again and highly recommend her.

Jody Bareket

Leemor is without a doubt one of the best in her field. I have had the rare pleasure to be on both ends of her professional expertise: I was a client and then, years later, a candidate. She guides both process and person with an expertise and warm personality that can't help but bring outstanding results for all involved. Leemor is both focused and flexible, dedicated to getting the best possible in the shortest amount of time. I give her the highest recommendation possible. She is one of the best there is.

[Jody was a client while in Comverse; In 2013 appointed Head of Global Internal Communications in Teva Pharmaceutical Industries]


Ruthie Zeltzer
Human Resources Director
Eastern Europe & Israel

We used Machnai-Weiss services throughout the last five years for a few senior positions in Israel, receiving best in class business needs understanding and professional services. Leemor brings passion and a great ability to capture both the business and the human aspects of the search, with optimal results for the business.


Ella Shechtman
Head of Human Resources at Sanofi

I worked with Leemor on talent sourcing processes in Genzyme. Leemor is highly professional, reliable and discreet. She works in a methodical manner and possesses strong talent sourcing abilities across markets. Leemor is committed to customers, actively working to understand and meet customer's expectations and needs. I can recommend Leemor for anyone looking for a talent sourcing professional for their business.
