Since the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby occurred this past Saturday, it’s only fitting that the April race for Top Echelon Network’s Recruiter of the Month honors came down to the wire.
And the winning recruiter is . . . Greg Downs of Downs Associates by a nose!
It also makes sense that the Kentucky Derby is held at Churchill Downs. Get it? Churchill DOWNS. Never mind.
Is there any way to weave current events into this blog post even more? Of course! This past Saturday was also May 4. How is that significant? Because it was “Star Wars Day.”
May the fourth be with you!
April was certainly with Greg Downs, as well as with the many other Network recruiters who nearly caught him at the finish line.
At Top Echelon Network, we recognize recruiters for both monthly and quarterly performance in four categories—Recruiter of the Month, Recruiter of the Quarter, Highest Split Placement Fee of the Month, and Highest Split Placement Fee of the Quarter.

Downs was one of many recruiters who made two split placements in the Network during the month of April. However, his overall cash-in total for those two placements was larger than anybody else’s total, earning him first place.
Other Preferred Member recruiters who made two split placements during the month of April included Amy Dunn of Technology Recruiting Solutions; Sean Napoles, CPC of Career Brokers, Inc.; Deb North of Deb North Consulting, LLC; John Peterson of Sun Recruiting, Inc., and Michael Stuck of Gables Search Group, Inc.

LARGEST SPLIT PLACEMENT FEE OF THE MONTH:
Kirby Butler, CPC of The Butlers Co. Insurance Recruiters and Mike McDonough of General Search and Recruitment
The position for this placement was Insurance/VP Commercial Lines. Butler was the job order recruiter, and McDonough was the candidate recruiter. The action that stimulated this split placement was listed as “Regular phone communication with a Top Echelon Network Preferred Member recruiter in my specialty area.”

Our criteria for these production awards:
Top Echelon Network determines the monthly and quarterly award winners based upon two things, 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, although Downs was tied with four other recruiters with two split placements apiece during the month of April, he won the award based upon his cash-in total for his two placements.
