Rowe Henderson of Rowe Henderson & Associates and Ken Nunley of firm name here are veterans of the recruiting profession and also long-time members of Top Echelon’s split network.

Ken started recruiting in 1994, and he joined the Network in March of 2002. Rowe started recruiting in 1999, and he joined the Network in 2004.

Both have enjoyed success within Top Echelon Network. Ken has made 45 Network placements, with Rowe adding 40 placements.

Their most recent placement, though, is one that warrants special attention. That’s because it’s the largest placement fee that either of them have earned in TE. In fact, the fee could end up being one of the top 10 placement fees in the Network for all of 2020.

Only time will tell if that’s the case. In the meantime, Rowe emailed the Top Echelon offices with news and details regarding the split placement:

“I guess I got so excited that I landed my largest placement in TE today, I had to let someone know!

“I was the job order recruiter for a Plant Director position with a large HVAC company, and Ken Nunley was the supplier of the candidate. After almost a week of negotiation and discussions, the candidate accepted an offer today for $205,000 base salary plus many other incentives! I call this offer package the ‘offer of the century.’ The recruiting fee is 25% which equates to $51,250.

“Since joining Top Echelon on May 5, 2004, I have always enjoyed the relationships, but I’ve never approached this large of a placement.”

This proves that once again, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been a recruiter or how long you’ve been a member of the Network. You can made a huge split placement fee with another TE recruiter at any time. And it could be the first split you’ve made with that recruiter.

Which was exactly the case in this situation. Rowe and Ken went from never making a split placement together in over 15 years to splitting a fee totaling $51,250.

So congratulations to Rowe and Ken for the success they’ve enjoyed as Top Echelon Network members, especially this particular placement!

“This candidate negotiated for a week, almost rejecting the original offer, but then the company offered him the ‘package of the century’! Then the candidate’s spouse decided she did not want to relocate. So I talked with the candidate over a whole weekend to encourage both he and his spouse to visit the area just to confirm that their concerns were correct or that the area was not so bad after all. Thank goodness they discovered that the area was surprisingly nice and moved forward with accepting the offer!”

Fee Percentage—25%

(Editor’s note: This is the first Network split placement that Rowe and Ken have made together in Top Echelon.)

We recently released the new Network Jobs feature in our split network, and it’s proven to be quite the game changer. It has affected multiple areas of the Network software (for the better), and one of those areas is the poll question area.

Typically, we’ve posted a poll question in the Top Echelon Network Members’ Area every week. We usually posted a new poll question on Monday. Once Network recruiters participated in a particular poll, they could then see the results as other members cast their votes.

However, our poll question area now resides in the legacy version of the software. Eventually, the legacy version is going away. What will happen to our poll questions once that happens? They’ll be resurrected in some form eventually.

But let’s not focus on that right now. Instead, let’s focus on the recent poll questions listed below, which are all about the Benjamins!
