The Top Placement Fees in TE for 2018

We have a repeat winner in terms of the Largest Split Fee of the Year in Top Echelon Network! (Actually, we have repeat winners, since it was a split placement.)

Those repeat winners are Shree Kumar of Max Populi, LLC and Darcy Morgan of GoRecruitMe. As you can see below, they split a fee of $68,200. That was the largest of all placement fees in our split network during 2018.

Shree and Darcy also split the biggest fee in TE in 2017. That fee was nearly identical to the one below—$68,224. And in perhaps another coincidence, the job title was the same for both placements: Neurosurgery Senior Advisor.

Huge TE placement fees

The fact we have repeat winners is just one of a few interesting aspects regarding the list. Other interesting aspects include the following:

  • The top five placement fees were all $60,000 or more. Last year, only the top three were $60,000 or more.
  • The fee of $56,250 was apparently the “magic number,” as three sets of split recruiting partners scored fees of that size.
  • There is a healthy mix of newer TE members are more tenured ones. Once again, this is proof that you don’t have to be in the Network for a long time to make big placement fees.

So congratulations to everybody who were part of our top 10 placement fees for 2018! Here’s to bigger fees this year!
