“Jerry is a ‘must follow’ on LinkedIn”

More than thirty years of recruiting experience specializing in marketing, more than 20 of it as a leading Ecommerce Recruiter and Digital Marketing Recruiter. Featured speaker and presenter at more than 40 marketing-related conferences, webinars, and other top learning events.

Of course, I put your interests first. Of course, I leave no stone unturned. Of course, I won’t waste your time trying to cram square pegs into round roles. You would expect all of that and more from someone of my stature as a leading ecommerce recruiter and digital marketing recruiter.


So… what makes me different?


Experience. Pure and simple.


When you do the same thing every day for three decades, when you’ve placed more than 1,000 candidates, and when you achieve honors and nationwide recognition doing it, you get good. You get really good. And I do not delegate the all-important task of recruiting to partners, staffers or trainees. I make every single contact.


Share your successes.

Client List

My Recruiting Process is time-tested and highly defined.

I do not delegate the all-important tasks of recruiting, interviewing and negotiating to research associates or junior staffers. I personally make each and every contact throughout the entire recruiting process, leveraging my extensive experience, “high recognition” quotient, and nationwide cross-referenced contact network to locate, evaluate and help you hire top performers. This gives your search enormous credibility. You are being represented by a recruiter on the “A” team.

In most instances, I can have qualified candidates on your desk within just two weeks.

Here is very small sampling of my extensive library of articles, interviews, white papers, webinars and conference presentations:

My book, “Careers in Ecommerce and Digital Marketing,” has been endorsed by professors and other instructors at colleges throughout the U.S.

“Eight Qualities Employers Will Look For In Digital Marketers In 2014.” My article in MarketingProfs, where I have been a contributing author.

“Loyalty Marketing: Looking For More Than Required Skills in 2014.” I write in Loyalty360.

“From Cell Phone to Sell Phone: Hiring The Best Mobile Marketers.” A white paper I wrote published by the International Journal of Mobile Marketing.

My writings and interviews have appeared in many other leading publications in digital marketing, e-commerce, direct marketing, and CRM, among them AdAge which featured me in its top-selling research report, “Smart Marketing Using Big Data,” on how the growing demand for digital analytic talent is impacting recruiting.

I have participated in the “Report on Salary Surveys” by Bloomberg BNA, global business and financial information news leader.

“The State of Digital Media Marketing” conference, held at the University of Missouri, St. Louis. For several years I have joined a panel of distinguished digital marketing and e-commerce experts, authors, thought leaders and college instructors to examine the latest trends in global digital media and the impact on the educational curriculum. Check out the video of the first conference in 2013 (my segment starts at 47:30 into the program).
