Jim Reilly was the person who interviewed me for my position at Venture Marketing Group. His energy and enthusiasm was contagious and I immediately felt like I had to work there! Jim has been on the most inspirational Sales Directors I have had the pleasure of working for; his sales training was invaluable and has helped me throughout my career. Jim is truly one of the most motivating, supporting and creative sales directors and I am very pleased to have been able to work with him.

Jim Reilly, was the only reason I joined Venture Marketing Group. His energy and enthusiasm was immense, during the interview process.
Jim has the ability to make every one like him, therefore making it easy for clients to trust him. Jim really is a in every sense a great sales Director, motivating all staff at all times even in difficult markets.
Personally speaking I would like to work for Jim again as he manages to bring the best out of people who work for him.
Peter Cleverton Sales Manager, Monster
I have recruited sales and marketing people for Jim Reilly for ten years and his transformation from the exhibition industry to the digital space has been remarkable. As anyone who has met or worked with him will testify, he brings a unique blend of commercial nous, sincerity and humour to business. Whether he's strategising, leading a sales team from the front or making astute hires there's a constant theme of intuition, honesty and downright hard work. I may be mistaken, but everyone seems to like and respect him (even the ones he's had to chastise or let go!).
Rob Case Director, Tomka Ltd
I have worked with Jim on many recruitment projects over the years and have always found him to be the consummate professional and a pleasure to deal with.
He has an excellent attention to detail and an ability to get the most out of an interviewee through a very thorough but relaxed interviewing style that enables him to probe a candidate's history where others would struggle.
I have no doubt in recommending Jim for any senior role within the Sales arena.
