Dave Walters is an Executive Search Consultant with Lee Group Search, specializing in recruiting for companies in various industries, understanding first and foremost how to match culture and company needs with candidate qualifications.
Dave joined Lee Group Search in 1987, following serving as an officer in the U.S. Army and then in the private sector as a Human Resources Generalist and a Labor Relations Manager for a consumer foods company.
He is motivated each day to help align talent, grow businesses and change people’s lives.
He appreciates greatly that work, career and professional endeavors have impact well beyond the work day and that the right job, the right employees, can have an impact on the health and wellbeing of people’s families and lives.
Dave sees his role being as much about placing employees in jobs and helping companies recruit team members as he does consulting with candidates to make the best, most informed decisions about their careers.
He helps guide candidates through thinking about what they want to get out of a job, where they want to live, what they want their life to be like and how professional endeavors can make that all a reality.
On the flip side, the same is true for companies. Employees – the right ones – can help grow a company and help it reach its business objectives and goals, which ultimately trickle down into other areas of life.
He’s built his career of successful recruitment on the belief that when companies and candidates view him as a strategic partner to their success, and are willing to think and work creatively and as a team, successful job placements can be completed.
His process is backed by diligence, persistence, honesty and integrity.
While Dave has always considered himself a generalist, able to help companies in any industry find the people they need to succeed, he does enjoy and has great experience working with manufacturers in the automotive, plastics, aerospace, consumer goods, supply chain and distribution, and food and beverage industries.
When Dave isn’t recruiting, he enjoys coaching football, mentoring young men, fishing, minor car restoration and yard work. Yes, yard work!
