Brian founded Shamrock Recruiting in May 2010. He has been recruiting for fifteen years, and has worked in the Denver/Boulder market since 2004. In 2012, Brian relocated to San Diego to open Shamrock’s second office. Prior to Shamrock, Brian spent six years with a national firm. He managed the permanent placement function for the Denver office, and a team of recruiters with a wide range of expertise and experience level. The team was consistently ranked first nationally. Of seventy recruiters throughout the country, Brian ranked in the top three each year of his employment, and was the top national biller in 2007 and 2008.
Brian began his recruiting career with a boutique, cross disciplinary recruiting agency in Manhattan. During an exciting and volatile period in NYC history, this early stage firm specialized in the Technology, Startup, Dotcom and Media Agency sectors. Brian joined with no experience, but driven to succeed and surrounded by an exceptional team of recruiters, he quickly became a top producer and Vice President.
Brian left NYC in 2002 to pursue business opportunities in Panama. This venture brought him to Boulder, where he eventually returned to recruiting. He graduated from Colgate University with a double major in English Literature and Fine Arts. He was a member of the intercollegiate Rugby team.
Brian is motivated by his wife and three young children. He and his family are excited to explore their new home city of San Diego.
Jason joined Shamrock Recruiting in March 2012. He serves as Regional Manager of Shamrock’s Colorado business, and is tasked with hiring and managing a small team of recrui
Jason and Brian had previously worked together at a large, national agency. Jason began his tenure with that firm as an Account Manager, but quickly displayed the talents to manage a full recruiting desk. Brian lobbied for him to join the Recruiting team, and Jason quickly became a top producing member of the team. Over the next year, he developed a number of very successful client relationships and was the company’s top national biller for most of 2009.
As the Economy slowed, Jason transitioned out of the recruiting industry in 2010. He served as regional Sales Manager for PDC Pharmacy, a small LTC pharmacy. He enjoyed unprecedented success with PDC, and rapidly developed the company’s presence in the Western states, but the recruiting industry (and Brian) was calling on him to return.
Jason earned his MBA, with an emphasis on Accounting & Finance, from the Keller Graduate School of Management. He earned his Bachelor’s degree at Penn State, and moved to Colorado in 2005. His wife, two children, and the desire to build an exceptional recruiting firm get Jason out of bed every morning.
