Michael Smithson is Recruiter of the Week in TE!

Today is Mother’s Day. It’s also the Network anniversary of recruiting agency Fred W. Smithson.

Why is that significant? Because Michael Smithson, CPC is the Executive Vice President of both Fred W. Smithson and JobCareers.

And Michael is the Recruiter of the Week in Top Echelon’s recruiting network!

There are three main reasons why Michael is the Recruiter of the Week:

  1. His agency is celebrating its 25th anniversary as a member of the Network today.
  2. His agency is on two nationally recognized lists that were recently published.
  3. Michael has made three split placements in Top Echelon Network already this year.

We recently announced that Network agency Affinity Executive Search is ranked on two lists published by Forbes magazine. Those lists are “America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms” and “America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms.” Affinity is ranked #43 and #75 on those lists, respectively.

Fred W. Smithson, meanwhile, is ranked #218 on the list of “America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms” and #90 on the list of “America’s Best Executive Recruiting Firms.”

Ironically, one of the three TE splits that Michael has made this year was with Steve Kohn, the President of Affinity Executive Search.

We asked Michael to say a few words about his time as a member of Top Echelon Network. As you can see below, he focused on his split recruiting partners and the tremendous experience that he’s enjoyed. And of course, he mentioned his recent split with Kohn.

“It has been a great ride with TE throughout the years. I have greatly enjoyed the partnerships, camaraderie, stories, and all-around great people that can be found in the Network. Though quiet for a few years, I have increased my importing/exporting activities and have been on both sides of the job recruiter and candidate recruiter list this year. I look forward to continue the trend throughout the remainder of this year and beyond. And to have made a split with Steve Kohn, I feel complete. Muchas gracias!”

Congratulations to Michael Smithson on his agency’s Network anniversary, being on two Forbes lists, and for being named Recruiter of the Week!
