Another Network recruiter visited the new Top Echelon headquarters in Canton, Ohio recently, and it was none other than Charter Member Steve Brody of Executive Resource Systems!

Brody is among the recruiters who joined the Network during its first year of existence in 1988.  Since joining, he’s made a total of 99 placements in Top Echelon Network.  (No pressure, Steve . . . but 100 is a pretty big milestone.)

Anyway, we want to thank Brody for visiting us, especially since his firm is located in California!  Oh, and for being a Preferred Member recruiter for the past 25 years.  That, too.

A WHIRLWIND TOUR: Steve Brody is pictured with Top Echelon President Mark Demaree (left) and Membership Development Coordinator Drea Codispoti.  If the clouds in the distance look ominous, it’s because they are . . . a tornado warning was in effect for Canton when this photo was taken.

IN FOR THE LONG ‘HAUL’: Steve Brody shakes hands with Top Echelon Network founder Mike Kappel, the person responsible for “recruiting” Brody into the Network.  Behind them on the wall is the original U-Haul blanked that Kappel used to shield his office area while making cold calls in the basement of a factory building in 1988 . . . the first Top Echelon headquarters!

If you’re a Network recruiter and you find yourself in the Canton area, we’d love for you to visit!  Just give us a call at 330.455.1433, and we’ll set it up . . . including the photo op!

As always, don’t forget to visit our Facebook Fan Page.  (Oh, and “like” us, too.  We’d certainly appreciate it.)

At Top Echelon , we’re big fans of continuous training and development.  That’s one of the reasons we offer a free recruiter training webinar every month.

Indiana Search and Staffing Association LogoHowever, we also like to promote industry events in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog, and that includes the 2013 Indiana Search and Staffing Association (ISSA) Conference, which is scheduled for Thursday, May 16, at The Pyramids in Indianapolis, Ind.

The keynote speaker for the event is Bob Marshall of TBMG International.  Marshall is presenting two sessions during the conference.

The first session, to be held in the morning, is called “Your Desk as a Manufacturing Plant.”  The second session, slated for the afternoon, is titled “Establishing Elegant Rapport Through Elegant Communication.”

(Marshall is also one of three speakers at the 2013 Top Echelon Network National Convention in April.  However, his session at the National Convention is different than the ones he’s presenting at the ISSA Conference.)

The full-day ISSA program is designed for all recruiters, staffing professionals, human resource professionals and sales professionals.  The main conference includes continental breakfast and lunch provided by Monster.

The cost of attending the ISSA Conference is $99 for members and $129 for non-members.  For registration information, contact Jennifer Fahlsing at (800) 658-0824 or via email at
