Earlier this year, we chronicled the milestones of Top Echelon Network members Trey Cameron of the Cameron Craig Group and Steve Kohn of Affinity Executive Search.

Trey has earned $8 million cash-in since becoming a TE recruiter, and Steve recently reached the $3 million plateau.

But what about those Network recruiters who recently passed the $1 million mark?

I’m so glad you asked!

Dan Simmons of Continental Search & Outplacement, Inc.

Since joining the Network in 1996, Dan has earned close to $1.4 million in the Network. Not only that, but he’s also made 195 TE placements during that time, meaning that he is hot on the heels of another impressive milestone. Dan’s total includes nearly $63K in contract placement fees.

Maria Hemminger of MJ Recruiters, LLC

MJ Recruiters recently celebrated its 15th anniversary in Top Echelon Network. Maria and the recruiters in her office have been a collective juggernaut during that time, as Maria has made 162 TE placements with a cash-in total of $1.2 million. Maria’s total includes nearly $18K in contract placement fees.

Jim Strickland of BioSource Recruiters

Jim, another veteran of the Network, has also been a prolific producer in Top Echelon. He’s made 157 placements totaling $1,084,156 in fees. Jim has also found the value in making contract placements, as over $90K of his total is the result of contract fees.

David M. Sgro, CPC of True North Consultants, LLC

Dave, a fixture at Top Echelon’s recruiter networking events down through the years, has also found value in making both split placements and contract placements. He’s made a total of 388 placements in TE for a total of $1,040,161. Nearly $80K of that total consists of contract fees.

Larry Ploscowe of EXEK Recruiters, Ltd.

Larry has been a direct hire placement machine since joining Top Echelon Network. Like the other recruiters on this list, he is in an elite group of members who have made at least 100 placements and billed at least $1 million through the Network. Larry eclipsed the $1 million mark earlier this year.

In addition to the recruiters above, there is a handful of members who are extremely close to reaching the $1 million mark. They include:

  • David Wood of The David Wood Company ($995,712)
  • Al Katz of First Search, Inc. ($983,900)
  • Pat McCombs, CPC of KB Search Team, LLC ($976,318)
  • Donna Carroll of Systems Personnel ($953,021)
  • Al Daum of Alan N. Daum & Associates ($933,154)

So congratulations to everybody who recently joined the $1 Million Club in Top Echelon Network, and we’re rooting for those recruiters who are close to reaching that plateau!

Bob Marshall of TBMG International has been in the recruiting profession for close to 40 years. There is not much, if anything, that he has not seen. And in this training video from the Top Echelon Expert Recruiter Coaching Series, Bob’s vast experience, and expertise will be at the disposal of those who watch the video.

During this special webinar session, we presented a list of the general steps in the recruiting process. Attendees then voted on which three pieces of the process about which they’d like to hear Bob’s thoughts and for which they received his scripts. Bob Marshall is famous for his expert recruiting scripts for all situations, and this is your chance to glean from his extensive knowledge and use it to close more deals and make more placements.

With the New Year just around the corner, this is a great time to arm yourself with more scripts for 2021. So watch the training video for “Script This! Scripts to Help You Master the Recruiting Process”!
