One of our more popular Pinnacle features is back!  And that’s “‘Comments’ and Compliments,” in which we publish some of the comments that Preferred Member recruiters submit with their Completed Placement Forms.

It’s a New Year . . . so we have new recruiters and new comments.  One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is that we’re still not disclosing the amount of the fee earned with these split placements.  For that information, login to the Members’ Area and view the profiles and placement details of the recruiters involved.  Please and thank-you.

Last week in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog, we published the names of the Top Ten Recruiters in Top Echelon Network for 2010.  The number-one Top Producer, of course, was Sean Napoles of Career Brokers, Inc.  This week, we’re continuing our series of articles regarding 2010 awards with our Regional Award winners.

For the purposes of this award, we break the country up into nine different regions, and the Regional Awards are based upon the Frequent Placer Program (FPP) points that Preferred Members earn over the course of the calendar year.  Members can earn FPP points in a variety of ways, starting with making split placements.  They can also earn them for telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, and meeting other Preferred Members in person.

Top-Producing RecruitersBelow are the winners of five of the nine regions within Top Echelon Network in 2010.  The top five recruiters in each region are listed, along with the number of FPP points that they earned.  The top recruiter in each region will receive an award at the 2011 National Convention in May.
