Our Founder

As the founder and managing principal at Liukkonen Recruiting/Consultants, my philosophy is simple: we place great people with great companies. My goal is for employees to stay engaged and challenged and for companies to build stronger, more productive teams.

I started my own recruiting company because I wanted every step of the hiring and search process to be personable and efficient. And I wanted the results to stick.

LCR melds the experience and capability of a large recruiting company with the hands-on attention of a small business, as it has for 30 years. Our recruiters are active listeners, driven communicators and savvy networkers.

In an era when many recruitment services use a plug-and-play model, treating candidates like commodities, we value a deep understanding of our clients’ needs through conversation, person-to-person connections and an engaged, proactive process.

We partner with companies—start-ups to Fortune 100s, local to global—to fill permanent and temporary positions, including interim executives. To help our clients identify growth areas and improve performance, we also provide management training, organizational development and employee enrichment seminars. And we help people give back  by donating a portion of our fee to the community or cause of their choice.
