KMG Group Serves Recruitment Needs of Changing Metals Industry

(Branson, MO) – Increasing demand for metal products across multiple industries is prompting many companies to expand. Specializing in search and recruitment for the metals industry, KMF Group LLC recently launched to partner with clients, helping them recruit the talent they need to support this growth. Led by Managing Directors Kristy Jones and Landon North, KMF Group is an affiliate of MRINetwork®, one of largest executive search and recruitment organizations in the world. 

“Both Ms. Jones and Mr. North have experience in business ownership and management, along with the ability to develop strong client relationships,” says John McDonald, president of MRINetwork. “Their track record of outstanding customer service ensures that they will be a great asset both to our organization and to their clients and candidates.”

Prior to joining MRINetwork, Jones was ranked as the number one sales person in her region with Bluegreen Vacations Inc. Previously she was co-owner of a freight-dispatching company where she was recognized with numerous awards for sales, top customer service, and production. North was also co-owner of the freight-dispatching company, as well as the owner of a franchise with Nerium International.

“Emerging markets for the metals industry are driving growth at a time when many manufacturers that downsized during the recession are struggling to meet increased production levels,” says Jones. “As a result, the competition for qualified quality and process engineers, as well as operations managers, is intensifying at a rapid rate.”

With a focus on the smelting side of the metals industry, North is keenly aware of the new standards for environment-friendly, high-efficiency, copper smelting and converting technology. “In order to remain competitive and comply with regulatory issues, manufacturers have stepped up their hiring of quality and process engineers, creating greater demand for our services,” he says. 

Both Jones and North are dedicated to advancing the careers of the candidates they source and to placing the most qualified people in this vital and evolving industry.
