It’s August! Which means that the “dog days” of summer are here . . . whatever that actually means. Anyway, it also means that we have our award winners for the month of July in Top Echelon Network, and we have a brand-new “Recruiter of the Month” recipient. In fact, this recruiter just recently ascended to the top spot in the Network. That’s right—not only is Russ Schutt, CSP of Progressive Executive, Inc. the “Recruiter of the Month,” he’s also currently the #1-ranked recruiter in the entire Network.
As always, we recognize recruiters for achievement in two categories every month and quarter. Those categories are “Recruiter of the Month” (as we’ve already mentioned) and “Highest Split Placement Fee of the Month.” Below are the winners of these awards for July. We’d like to congratulate the recruiters who earned them and thank them for their efforts. Remember, for more information about the placements and cash-in totals associated with these awards, please login to the Members’ Area and view the profiles and placement details of the recruiters involved.

Our criteria for these awards:
Top Echelon’s recruiting network is a split fee recruiting network. As such, we place an emphasis on split placements, and that emphasis constitutes the basis of our criteria for these awards. We determine the monthly and quarterly award winners based upon two factors, 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
In other words, the number of split placements that recruiters make is our first consideration. In the event of a tie, the cash-in total earned from those split placements is the deciding factor and serves to break the tie. Obviously, the recruiter with more cash-in dollars in the event of a tie is the recruiter who wins the award.
