Award Winning Sales Recruiters

Our Values

Freedom and Flexibility

We trust in and empower our employees to work when and where they like. It takes a highly motivated and autonomous career professional to thrive in our environment. Our only non-negotiables are: achieving results, being ethical, keeping your word, and minimizing drama.

Deliver Value

To our clients, our candidates, and our employees. We always strive to exceed the expectations of everyone we touch.

Transparency and Accuracy

In our approach, our communication and our interactions with clients and candidates. We believe that over-selling and/or not setting proper expectations is a sure path to failure.

Family First

Although words like work ethic, determination, and achievement are core to our team and our company, family comes first.

Dig Deep

Often in the talent wars, it takes a second (or third) effort to attract and land the most talented candidates. Our clients’ goals are in jeopardy unless we consistently deliver top performers that produce results and stick long-term.

Teamwork and Collaboration

Our concept of teamwork extends beyond our team here at Sales Talent. It’s our mission to deliver superior results to our clients, and that requires a collaborative and mutually beneficial approach. Our long-term success is directly related to our clients’ long-term success.


In today’s marketplace, standing still is falling behind. We want to stay at the forefront of creating best practices and utilizing technology in sales recruitment and selection.
