The perfect 12
Unlike other matchmaking firms, Perfect 12 Introductions is a boutique “hands-on” matchmaking and personal
recruiting firm. It is Perfect 12 founder Simona Fusco’s personal philosophy that every relationship begins with trust – and your relationship with us is no different. In fact, Simona insists on meeting with each client
individually and only takes on a certain number of clientele each year to allow her the time to personally meet and get acquainted with each client.
"I had been with a few matchmakers before I joined Perfect 12. What convinced me to join Perfect 12 was the fact that the Founder herself matched me. With my previous experiences I was typically shoved off to some assistant or junior matchmaker that had no clue about what she was doing. Never met with the owner or CEO herself like I did at Perfect 12. Furthermore, privacy is of the utmost importance to me. I didn’t want my information to be handed around from one person to another even if it’s just within the agency. Simona personally took care of me. I consider her my confidante, not just my matchmaker. Thank you Simona!"
