Our new Commercial Lender has worked out very well. We had a very productive and beneficial relationship with Greg throughout this process.

Rob did a great job for us. I enjoyed working with him and the end result was a fantastic Construction Lender in Carol. Well done!

Zac is an outstanding recruiter and has been an excellent partner. We have used him to recruit for several high level/executive positions over the last few years (including myself) and he has brought us top quality talent consistently. He is helpful, attentive, and extremely responsive. Anytime we have a senior level position available in our organization, he is my first call.

I enjoyed working with Steve. He brought the right amount of advocacy for the candidate and respect for our process internally. It was a long courtship with Jason. Steve was very helpful along the way.

I have found Rob to be extremely professional and a recruiter who strives to meet our needs to the fullest potential. He listens well and acts on what he has heard to the best of our interests. He is fair and I believe that he acts on behalf of both his client, the potential job candidate, and the organization seeking his service. I work with several recruiters and he happens to be my favorite. York and Associates overall is also my favorite recruiting team, as I have had the experience of getting nothing other than great service from them.

Kudos to both the firm and Rob and we will continue to give both an opportunity to serve First Chatham Bank.

My experiences with Steve Yakubik and with York & Associates have been positive.

Initially, I worked with Steve on a banking position with another institution. While the company decided to go with another candidate, Steve kept in touch with me.

He was responsible for initiating the interview process with Franklin Synergy Bank.

I have worked with a number of recruiters during my career and my experience with Steve has been, by far, the best I have encountered. He is adept at aligning skills and experience with the open job position. He takes an interest in the candidate to ensure there is a good fit for both the employer and the candidate.

Above all, Steve made sure to maintain contact with me and to effectively communicate any changes to the process or my status.

I had a great experience with Ryan. Ryan was very thorough and seemed to genuinely take an interest in me and my goals for finding a new position. He was very responsive and worked swiftly to find and book several conversations with various banks to find the right fit. His connections with various banks in Tulsa were impressive and he was sensitive to my meeting time availability. Ryan was able to find a very good fit for me at Bank of Commerce and he was not pushy or defensive when another opportunity was offered to me in the 11th hour. The other opportunity was something that I had instigated before I engaged Ryan and it was a very good opportunity as well. He took the time to talk with me about the pros and cons of both positions and ultimately I believe I made the right decision going with BOC. Ryan was the consummate professional and I have recommended him to a very good friend of mine because I know he will do all he can to help him. I will also continue to send any colleagues his way if they need his services going forward. I first want to thank Ryan for his hard work and thank York & Associates for allowing him the freedom and resources to perform his services.

I only have good things to say. Rob listened to my needs for a job and he was significant in matching me with Colony Bank. He was always available if I needed him during the process. Thanks for the new start back home.

Carol Stone


Paul provided an informative initial conversation with appropriate discussion and follow up. I had not been looking to make an employment change but with opportunity and strong effort on Paul’s behalf I am very pleased that I made the change and am glad Paul was able to be part of the process. Should I hear of any opportunities that will be beneficial to your group I will gladly pass them on.

Jeff Altmiller


Working with Ryan was an absolute great experience. Not only is he professional, but very friendly and personable; it felt as if we had been friends for years. Once we set the parameters on what I was looking for, Ryan did a fantastic and quick job of setting up interviews and was always available to take my calls. It is obvious he is well connected in the banking industry and loves his job. I would recommend Ryan and York & Associates to any banker in need of a recruiter.

I had a wonderful experience with Harlow in the recruiting process this year. He was very responsive to any needs/concerns that I had during the process and I would strongly recommend him and your firm to anyone looking to make a change. Harlow and York & Associates went above and beyond to make sure the process went smoothly.

Kevin Zgonc


My overall experience with York & Associates has been top-notch and unrivaled when compared to other recruiting agencies that I have worked with in the past. Harlow invested a significant amount of time learning about my background and career aspirations, and was always available and eager to answer questions, facilitate discussions, manage interviews, and in general to advocate on my behalf with banks. His advocacy, initiative, and support resulted in several interviews with area banks, all of which generated productive dialogue and networking opportunities. Harlow has gone far above and beyond my expectations for a recruiter, managing substantially all parts of the job search process which made it easy for me to interview and succeed. He has my highest recommendation to anyone who may be considering his services in the future.

Thank you again for everything and please send my best to Harlow and others at York & Associates.
