Current CEO: Greg Peay
The Bradsby Group is a recruitment firm based in Denver, CO. It was founded by Greg Peay in 2004. There is also a branch that has been operating in Houston, TX, since 2007.
There is a total of about 60 Account Executives or Executive Recruiter positions at the current time. The company’s primary markets are divided into different divisions, which are comprised of executive search functions in the Accounting/Finance, Telecom, Oil/Gas, Information Technology, Financial Services, Construction, Legal and Supply Chain industries.
The Denver branch of the operation has been recognized as the city’s #1 staffing agency by the Denver Business Journal.
Working at Bradsby will appeal to highly motivated sales-oriented self-starters with the stamina to engage in heavy phone contact with potential candidates and contacts who may know of potential candidates for the company’s recruitment markets.
It will also be necessary to persuade companies seeking executives of the benefits of turning this function over to the Bradsby Group.
As might be anticipated, there will be heavy amounts of rejection involved in this job description, so sufficient self-esteem to deal with this aspect of the position will prove a valuable personal trait.
The ability to effectively plan activities and apply those plans efficiently is also a key aspect of Bradsby Group careers.
While previous recruitment experience will be an asset to candidates applying to Bradsby, many of the same skills that pertain to other sales fields will transfer to this position.
A highly competitive atmosphere will be a key aspect of the Bradsby Group culture. This competition is both internal, between teams of recruiters that are evaluated on revenues generated in their respective specialties, and external from many other recruitment firms in this industry where geographical location offers no significant advantages.
The company website further defines the culture at Bradsby as being committed to excellence in recruiting, since a repeat client from a major corporation can generate considerable revenues. The Denver branch takes pride in things unique to Colorado, and has a special affinity for the Colorado Rockies Baseball Team.
They consider themselves an employee-owned company, so some prominent Bradsby benefits include an un-capped commission structure that rewards high performance, three annual vacation incentives for goal achievers, ongoing support and career development, and perhaps most importantly, an Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP) that vests 100% after only six years.
The company is also generous with time off, closing Friday afternoons at 4 PM. and giving recruiters a half day off on the Fridays preceding Monday holidays.
