Wes Ashworth is Vice President, Executive Search at Lee Group Search, specializing in partnering with companies nationwide with mission-critical recruiting initiatives to find the talent they need to grow and scale their business operations.
He enjoys working with and has garnered great success in, among other industries, Manufacturing, Logistics and Distribution.
Wes joined the firm in 2014, and has continued to find success through his strong belief in doing the right thing, caring about people and fostering close relationships with both the company and the candidate.
His proven process to align talent to grow businesses starts with taking the time to deeply understand what a business needs, the culture they’ve created for their team members and what type of candidate will help them grow. It stretches into getting that same level of understanding from the candidate. This work goes beyond a traditional meet and greet or interview. It’s more than a job description and more than a resume.
For Wes, getting the perfect fit is the name of the game. Finding the candidate that fits the company and the company that fits the candidate are both critical. Only with a carefully evaluated fit will a candidate be positioned for success and find fulfillment from their job. In turn, companies benefit from an engaged employee who is a top performer over the long term.
Wes’ laser focus on fit and long-term success has served him well. Recalling a client who turned to Lee Group Search with a job opening that several other agencies could not fill after more than six months of searching for candidates, Wes took the time to learn about the company and get up to speed on the nuances of the specific job requirements and culture of the organization. Within a few weeks, he was able to fill the position with the right candidate who went on to be successful with the company. Today, Wes counts the company as one of his most loyal clients.
When he’s not matching candidates with positions, Wes enjoys spending quality time with his family and being around the water – piloting his kayak, catching a fish, or simply relaxing at the beach.
