Surprise, There’s a New Recruiter of the Month!


Lloyd E. Shoemaker of TriVista Professional Placement Services was our very first Recruiter of the Week.

And now he’s the Recruiter of the Month!

Top ProducersThat’s right, Shoemaker dethroned Trey Cameron of the Cameron Craig Group for the award, although it was a close race.  In fact, there were quite a few Top Echelon Network recruiters involved in that race.

Speaking of awards, with the end of the year rapidly approaching, we’ll soon be announcing our awards for 2013, including Recruiter of the Year, Top-Producing Firm of the Year, and our various regional winners.

So keep an eye out for those announcements in The Pinnacle after the first of the year.  Before then?  Keep an eye out for Early Bird Registration for the 2014 National Convention!


At Top Echelon Network, we recognize recruiters for both monthly and quarterly performance in four categories—Recruiter of the Month, Recruiter of the Quarter, Largest Split Fee of the Month, and Largest Split Fee of the Quarter.

For more information about the recruiter awards listed below, login to the Members’ Area and view the profiles and placement details of the Network recruiters who won them.

Network Recruiter Lloyd ShoemakerLloyd E. Shoemaker of TriVista Professional Placement Services

Shoemaker was one of a number of Network recruiters who made two split placements in Top Echelon during the month of November.  However, his “cash-in” total for those two was more than anybody else, so he’s this month’s winner.

Among the other Network recruiters who made two splits in November were Greg Downs of Downs Associates, Matt Scheihing of J. Miles Personnel Services, Cameron, and Paul Johnson of Paul Johnson & Associates.

The position for this split placement was a Chief Financial Officer.  Lear was the job order recruiter, and Pelayo was the candidate recruiter.  The action that stimulated this split placement was listed as, “Regular communication with another Top Echelon Network recruiter.”

Top Echelon Network determines the monthly and quarterly award winners based upon two criteria, which are listed below in order of importance:

1.) The number of split placements made
2.) The amount of cash-in dollars earned as a result of those split placements

This explains why, when multiple recruiters are tied with the same number of split placements during a given month or quarter, the recruiter with the largest “cash-in” total for their placements is deemed the winner.
