Not a current client, but I have talked with prior clients when I’m interested in making a move. Keeping up good relationships definitely led me to an opportunity where he referred me to a fellow senior leader I didn’t know. Often times it goes the other way where ex clients call me up to gauge interest about making a jump to them.
