Executive Senior Partner - Contract Placement
A talented Executive Senior Partner for Lucas Group’s Accounting and Finance Contract Division in Atlanta, Brian Rains thrives on the competitive nature of the recruiting business. For him the keys to success lie in process and consistency–having a plan and carrying it out, but being flexible when the occasion calls for it. Brian’s persistence and consistent strategizing of his next move ensure he’s always prepared. With a finance degree from the University of Tennessee, Brian places importance on educating himself about his clients and their sensitivities in order to wholly understand their needs.
Prior to joining Lucas Group in 2011, Brian worked in the mortgage industry for 16 years lending him a credibility that proves he’s more than just a recruiting vendor. In fact, when he decided it was time for a career change Brian originally turned to Lucas Group as a part of his job search. But rather than placing him with another employer the company recognized his valuable financial services experience and soon offered him a position. Since then Brian has channeled his finance knowledge, skills, and commitment to exceptional customer service into a successful career at Lucas Group.
Brian is committed to working with a broad range of industry to find the perfect fit for each position, whether it’s at staff level or a CFO. It takes more than charisma and “smooth talking” to be an effective executive recruiter. Brian strives to cultivate a solid and diverse base of clients to work with regularly, and is diligent about taking the time to facilitate and grow his business relationships. As an expert multitasker he’s able to juggle varying priorities, and through his focus on process and relationship building, Brian garners great satisfaction as both his client’s and his own professional goals are realized.
Brian is reliable and available. His three children keep him busy when he’s not at the office and whether he’s coaching his son’s baseball team or participating in endurance activities like mountain and road cycling, his focus on process and repetition always shines through. Additionally, while in college Brian was a place kicker for the University of Tennessee football team, a skill he also maintained through continuous reps. If he weren’t a recruiter he would apply his same professional strategies to helping others as a sports trainer or coach. Because no matter what field Brian is in, his formula ensures proven results.
