Trey Cameron of the Cameron Craig Group

Trey Cameron of the Cameron Craig Group

The last few months, the race for Recruiter of the Month honors in Top Echelon Network has been close.  That was NOT the case for the month of May.

That’s because Trey Cameron made eight split placements in the Network during the month.  The next closest recruiter (and there were many of them) made two split placements in May.  Those recruiters included Joe Cotter of J.D. Cotter Search, Inc.; Jane H. Ko, CPC of DHG Search Advisors, LLC; Veronica Snyder of Career Professionals, Inc.; and Steve Kohn of Affinity Executive Search.

Matt Scheihing of J. Miles Personnel Services and Joe Cotter of J.D. Cotter Search, Inc.

The position for this split placement was a Sr. Brand Manager.  Scheihing was the job order recruiter, and Cotter was the candidate recruiter.  The action that stimulated this split placement was listed as, “Regular communication with another Top Echelon Network recruiter.”

Top Echelon Network determines the monthly and quarterly award winners based upon two criteria, 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

This explains why, when multiple recruiters are tied with the same number of split placements during a given month or quarter, the recruiter with the largest “cash-in” total for their placements is deemed the winner.


Wait a minute . . . we thought Al Daum was “da bomb!”

Well, we apparently have a challenger in the form of longtime Preferred Member recruiter Joe Cotter of JD. Cotter Search, Inc.

Cotter started recruiting in 1970, and J.D. Cotter Search, Inc. joined Top Echelon Network in March of 2001. Since that time, Cotter has made 42 Network placements.

Daum, on the other hand, started recruiting in 1976. His firm, Alan N. Daum & Associates, joined Top Echelon Network in May of 1999. (Happy anniversary, Al!) In terms of production, Daum has made 61 Network placements during his Top Echelon career.

How about the state in which they live? They both live in Ohio? Darn, we can’t break the tie that way.

You know what? Joe Cotter and Al Daum are BOTH “the bomb” (or “da bomb”)! After all, who could possibly argue that they’re not?

Congratulations to everybody who made split placements this week!
