We’ve worn your shoes. As sales and marketing professionals and leaders at private and publicly traded companies, we’ve experienced the many challenges in growing, maintaining and turning around sales organizations. After years of learning the hard knocks, hitting revenue targets and building networks of dedicated professionals, we decided to share our knowledge with other like-minded business and sales leaders as sales and marketing recruiters.
In 2007, we incorporated Lucas Select and immediately went to work creating powerful relationships within small, medium and large companies throughout North America. We deliver highly effective recruiting and contracting staffing services. As entrepreneurs, we understand the importance of building a team right with the first and every hire. It’s not only important it’s crucial.
That’s why we engage at all stages of business growth from envisioning the business model to sales strategy development to attacking the market, through market expansion, recession, acquisition, and re-invigoration. We connect outstanding sales and marketing professionals with innovative companies focused on selling technology-based products and services.
Unlike typical staffing agencies, all of our recruiters have carried the bag before. Our recruiters know sales and what it takes to be successful in sales. Using our extensive network of proven candidates throughout North America, our recruiters search for candidates that match your culture, sales process, and skill requirements.
Our recruiters are extensively trained on our proprietary recruiting methods keeping abreast of current sourcing, screening, interviewing and referencing methods.
As a candidate, we always get your approval before submitting your qualifications to a client.
We ensure that a company maintains a sustained growth model that is supported by talent recruitment at scale, balanced by on-going people development, aligned with your Company’s core values. At the end of the day, we measure ourselves by your success. Your sales goals become our goals.
