Prior to working with MetalJobs Network, John had a successful career in sales. Since joining the MJN team, John has played a crucial role in bringing on new clients and has recently become a Managing Partner. John’s time is spent between working with clients on open searches and business development opportunities with new clients.
His goal each day is to partner with companies where he and his team’s resources and industry knowledge can quickly solve hiring challenges. He knows that he is most effective when he keeps the needs of his clients and candidates front and center. His team is focused on three areas that make them successful. First, they are highly niched, working only on positions with service centers and mills/metal producers where direct industry experience is needed. Next, they work quickly. By employing a full-time staff of researchers and recruiters John is able to find qualified candidates expeditiously when there is a pressing need. Finally, they search thoroughly to gather any and all candidates that might be a fit. Their goal is to find 3-5 highly qualified candidates for each search they work on. The best candidates are often passive and John’s team finds and attracts them by dedicating much of their time to cold calling and developing relationships.
John has four young children who take up nearly all of his “free” time but he enjoys reading, watching movies, hunting, and catching the occasional rock concert.
