The longer Top Echelon Network exists . . . the fewer Charter Members there are. That’s just one of the unfortunate consequences of longevity. However, there’s one Charter Member who’s still going strong in the Network, and that Preferred Member recruiter is Steve Brody of Executive Resource Systems.
Brody has been an extremely consistent producer in Top Echelon Network since he joined back at the very beginning—March 8, 1988. During his 20-plus years in the Network, Brody has now made a total of 93 placements, with five of those placements occurring this year.
In addition, three of his placements for 2011 were made recently, which is the reason that Brody is the “Recruiter of the Month” for the month of October. That’s just one of the two award winners we’re announcing in this Pinnacle Newsletter Blog post (actually, one of three, since the other award includes a pair of recruiters).

Brody was one of two recruiters who made three Network split placements during the month of October. However, he edged out Trey Cameron of the Cameron Craig Group based upon his cash-in total for those split placements.
Among the Preferred Member recruiters who made two split placements apiece during the month of October were Bob Small of Carroll Technology Services, Inc. and David M. Sgro of True North Consultants, Inc. (In fact, the two spit placements that Small and Sgro made were with each other!)

This rather large fee was earned by placing a Director of Quality Resources.
The action causing this placement was listed as “Regular phone communication with another Top Echelon Network Preferred Member recruiter in my specialty area.”

Our criteria for these awards:
Top Echelon Network is a split placement 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.
