The Largest Network Split Fee in January: $50K

Surf Search is at it again!

After claiming part of four of the 10 largest split placements in Top Echelon Network in 2020, the TE agency has started the year with a bang. Specifically, the agency is part of the Largest Split Fee Award in the Network for the month of January!

As you can see below, Debbie Winkelbauer of Surf Search split a $50K placement fee with Shelli Saunders of GoRecruitMe to take the top spot.

Top Echelon determines the monthly and quarterly winners of its Network split fee recruiting awards in four distinct categories:

1.) Recruiter of the Month
2.) Largest Split Fee of the Month
3.) Recruiter of the Quarter
4.) Largest Split Fee of the Quarter

We only announce the winners of these awards in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog. We do so usually (but not always) in the issue following the conclusion of each month and/or quarter.

So congratulations to Debbie and Shelli for making this placement and for earning the Largest Split Fee of the Month Award . . . and congratulations to everybody on list below for making some BIG placement fees during January!
