Who says you can’t make a lot of money as a recruiter with split placements?
Not Top Echelon Network members Ron Sunshine of Ron Sunshine Associates, LLC and Norma Wallis of LME Resources, LLC, that’s for sure. That’s because the two of them recently split the largest fee in the history of the Network! (It was also the Largest Split Fee of the Month for May, but really, that’s a secondary consideration.)
The amount of that fee: $95,000!
That blew past the previous record for the largest split placement fee in the Network: $72,500 by Mary Anne Buckley of Interstate Recruiters Corp and Richard Connors of Vista Technology. This is a record that might never be broken in Top Echelon.
Here’s what Ron had to say about the placement:
“I was contacted by the VP of human resources of one of my best clients. He told me that they were going to be looking for a VP of sales and that the president wanted to only work with a Detroit firm that has a track record of retained search with professionals at that level.
“I contacted Drea [Codispoti] and asked him who he would recommend and he gave me some names. I then contacted Norma, whose name was on that list. She said she was interested in doing the search and being the point person for my client.
“The rest is history.”
History, indeed. And to top it all off, this was Norma’s first placement as a member of Top Echelon Network. What a first placement it was!
Congratulations to Ron and Norma. For their accomplishment, they’ll receive a special award at the 2017 National Convention. That is, unless two other recruiters make a bigger split placement in the Network before the end of the year . . .
