The Jacob Group Partners with Sales Consultants of Dallas to Expand Business Capabilities

Merging of key recruiters, business units and other resources strengthen industry focus and practice groups. 

(McKinney, TX) – Executive search firm, The Jacob Group, announced that it is expanding its capabilities through a strategic agreement with retiring, long-time owners of Sales Consultants of Dallas (SC Dallas), Anita and Mark Rednick. Key recruiters, business units, databases and other important resources from Sales Consultants of Dallas are merging into a well-positioned Jacob Group. Both firms are affiliates of MRINetwork®, one of the largest executive search and recruitment organizations in the world.

“For more than two decades, we have been pursuing our mission of providing our clients with the best possible talent, and this move will boost our ability to meet their demands,” says Don Jacob, CEO of The Jacob Group. “As the economy rebounds, employers want star players to help them move their businesses forward.”

The Jacob Group specializes in the food and beverage, restaurant, retail, hospitality, energy and defense, insurance and life sciences industries. With the addition of SC Dallas recruitment professionals, Brian Gilbert and Mary Ellen Karnes, the restaurant and hospitality practice at The Jacob Group now includes expertise in the travel and leisure sector. Additionally, they have added strength to the human resources and manufacturing practice groups.

“Our practice groups are strategically built with a balance of strong industry or functional background and years of recruiting experience in each specialty,” says Jacob. “These new team members deepen and strengthen our industry focus and allow us to accelerate the steady growth we have enjoyed even through the economic downturn.”

“In the next decade, business leaders will be challenged to find talent with the education, background, and business acumen they need to impact results,” Jacob observes. Recruiters will become increasingly important in helping employers locate key talent because of their long-standing relationships with these candidates. This is extremely important as recent data shows that the job market in the executive and managerial sector is largely candidate-driven. ‘A’ players in this sector are interviewing multiple companies and have several offers to consider, forcing employers to streamline the hiring process to lure key talent away from competitors. The new business units and resources that we have gained from SC Dallas ensure that we will be prepared to help our clients overcome these challenges and fill key leadership roles.”
