WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2008 in Milwaukee, WI, Fusion Recruiters brings nearly 100 years of combined corporate recruitment and agency search experience across multiple functions and industries. Specializing in both Executive Search as well as HR Tools and Technologies, we do our best to optimize Recruitment and HR tools in partnership with our clients both local to the Upper Midwest as well as Nationwide.
The majority of our retained search work falls within all aspects of functional Human Resources and Marketing, but we also have recruiters who specialize within Sales, Accounting/Finance, Operations/Engineering, Procurement, and Legal. And while our President was fortunate enough to be named a Top 10 HR Recruiter nationally in 2016 (LinkedIn; G. Blomgren), Fusion Recruiters was also recently published as a Top Executive Retained Search Firm by the Milwaukee Business Journal (2017) - so we enjoy recruiting and working with talented leaders both locally and nationally!

ABOUT THE OWNER
With over 20 years of Human Resources and Talent Acquisition leadership across both leading agency and corporate environments (including GE Healthcare and Miller Brewing), I've been lucky enough to work with some incredibly talented HR Professionals and business leaders over the course of my career. Shortly after receiving my HR Degree from UW-Whitewater, I quickly realized how much I enjoyed recruiting - the people, the process, and the impact that talented hires made to both the company and the culture of of organizations I partnered with. Professionally speaking, there's nothing I enjoy more than knowing that we've been able to assist in significantly helping a client hire a top-talent candidate while also positively impacting that candidate's career and the well-being of their family.
A family-oriented individual myself (with two young boys and an incredible wife), they always find ways to both motivate and humor me. So culturally for Fusion, I look not only for talented recruiters who can successfully find that "gamechanger" or "needle-in-the-haystack" candidate, but that also bring the unique skill set of being driven, passionate, and collaborative leaders who aren't afraid to add the "human" element into Executive Search. Executive Search - like many other careers and disciplines - is a challenging field. Adding levity and being able to engage in candid, "real" conversations with executive candidates and clients is a must. And being a fan of the Packers doesn't hurt either...
Whether you're a potential client who may be curious about our services and how Fusion Recruiters can assist you, or if you're a candidate looking to learn more about Fusion Recruiters and our open positions - I'd be happy to connect, and look forward to networking with you.
