I am fortunate to have found my niche: finding, screening, vetting, and winning-over the “diamond in the rough placements” for my clients. Solving problems is my forte. Drawing from my US Navy background as an Aerographer (searching for submarines), my attention to detail is second to none.

What fuels me is showcasing candidates who will grow a company’s business, allowing them to scale operations. My approach and focus are on the long-term strategy, supplementing corporate human resources and closing the deal. I work with a sense of urgency, maintain integrity, and am genuinely enthusiastic about each placement and have developed a reputation of being “the one who finds the unicorns.”

I am Emmanuel Penson-Gravel, Senior Executive Recruiter for the Lincoln Group.

Recently, while in Abu Dhabi, I gained experiences in global recruiting strategies and was involved in all stages of the recruitment cycle, serving international clients with an emphasis on reducing time to hire and increasing offer acceptance rates.

Earlier in my career as Senior Executive Search Consultant for the Lucas Group, I ran both sides of the recruiting desk (client and business operations). From day one, I hit the ground running, placing my first candidate in five days. And as a Senior Staffing Manager for Robert Half, I gained critical experience in finding and placing over 1,000 people per year ranging from C-Suite individuals to administrative staff.

In each setting, I personalized the search, as the placement satisfied my candidate’s unique career goals (promotions, pay raises, better benefits, flexible schedules, acquisition of a dream home, or allowing parents the ability to put their kids through college). I am all about finding the right fit while humanizing the job placement process, such as when I was challenged to find a rare IT screening request with stringent qualifications. I culled from over 5,000 candidates down to one, using one-to-one communication beyond the initial contact.

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I am becoming a car enthusiast, recently acquiring a 2017 BMW 650i, as well as enjoying most outdoor sports and online video gaming opportunities.
