David Manns: Recruiter of the Week in Top Echelon

Any member of Top Echelon Network can be Recruiter of the Week in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog. You can be a newer member, which we’ve already proven. You can also be a more tenured member and be Recruiter of the Week.

It all comes down to performance and results.

David Manns of Access Staffing joined Top Echelon in October of 2008, which means he’ll soon be celebrating his 11th anniversary as a member. From 2007 to 2018, David made nine split placements in the Network.

However, this year, David has “caught fire,” making five splits already with three full months still to go.

David’s experience in Top Echelon is proof that you can enjoy more success in the Network at any time. Specifically, you can make more placements and you can receive a bigger return on your investment in Top Echelon Network.

So for his recent flurry of Network activity and his increased level of success, David Manns is Recruiter of the week in Top Echelon!

David Manns: the secret to his success

We wanted David to say a few words about the success that he’s enjoyed this year in TE. Thankfully, he agreed to do so.

“I’ve been a member of Top Echelon a long time. In the beginning couple years of joining Top Echelon, the technology seemed so impressive (overwhelming) in the sense that it would lead to [automatic] success and given that it took four years to find success, I learned the hard way that it’s relationships that are key. There is an art to having good partners, and at this stage of my career, I’m very selective in working legit job orders from importers who have good cooperation from companies and timely feedback. My focus is on exporting.

“My wife started our business in staffing in Ohio which developed into a search firm. I had to change my focus off clearance level defense recruiting to find success in the network after the 2008 election when the government made cutbacks. Today, I work a desk to export Engineers and Manufacturing Operations candidates.

“One thing partners may like to know is I enjoy professionally writing resumes. My wife Shannon is my business partner and has a hand in polishing them, but we mostly give the credit to God for the capability to write them and for success in making placements.

“Another thing partners may not know is my wife is an ace researcher! We removed her off TE years ago, and it helped organize her work behind the scenes.

“There are many other partners in Top Echelon that I haven’t met, including many new ones, and I wish there were buttons a lot of times to signal which pipelines are empty, and where importers are in their searches.”

So congratulations to David Manns for his production and success in the Network and for being named Recruiter of the Week!
