What people are saying

I have known Doug Lucas for several years as a very effective talent recruiter. Most recently, he did a terrific job sourcing and identifying qualified candidates for a business development position in the New York City / Tri-State market, where previously we had experienced failed hires. Doug assisted me in identifying the qualities and skills we desired; pre-screened applicants before presenting; and helped negotiate our offer with the preferred candidate. He knew where to look for the right skills and found us a valued team member!

I engaged Mr. Lucas and Pinnacle to conduct a search for a successor to me. In short, I could not be happier with Mr. Lucas’ performance.

ActivAdmin publishes elearning tools and a software platform for administrators of building automation systems. The market is often overlooked, but is growing rapidly. The successful candidate requires ability to navigate a technology-based product, technical people that serves a market populated by non-technical people bound to slow-to-change processes. There are qualified people, but they are not easily identified.

Pinnacle identified a very large number of candidates, who for various reasons, either were not desirable or chose to not take the position. Mr. Lucas conducted periodic meetings with me to discuss specific candidates and the general process. He adjusted and I adjusted for about a year. He was consistently engaged and professional.

Finally, he found the ideal candidate. Despite the difficulty and the extended engagement, Mr. Lucas succeeded and has my respect and support. I intend to use him in the future and I surely refer others from time to time.

Doug more than proved his ability to find excellent candidates and match them to the right "homes" in sales, executive management and support positions as well as operations managers and VPs for many different client environments. I would recommend him highly to both corporate and job seeking clients.
