Executive Search Consultant - Direct Hire
No one is more familiar with Lucas Group than Garrett Jacks. A former candidate and client turned employee, he truly has a well-rounded perspective of executive recruiting that he offers to his clients.
A former U.S. Navy Submarine Officer, Garrett joined Lucas Group in 2019 as an Executive Search Consultant in the military transition practice. He enjoys working with transitioning military veterans – talented men and women leaders who can truly help shape Corporate America. Garrett understands the unbelievable work ethic, discipline, passion and relentless drive to succeed that military candidates possess, and he works with leading employers throughout the U.S. to address their hiring needs with these exceptional veterans.
After graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy with a B.S. in Oceanography in 2009, Garrett spent five years as a Navy Submarine Officer on the U.S.S. Florida. Upon leaving the military, he contacted Lucas Group to help with his transition from active duty. He accepted a position as an Executive Partner with a real estate startup company in Tallahassee, Florida. The company quickly grew from four employees to nearly 30, and along the way, Garrett and his team enlisted the experts at Lucas Group to help them hire some of their leadership talent. In early 2019, Garrett and his wife welcomed their third child into the world and wanted to move back to Texas to be closer to family. He again contacted Lucas Group, but this time, he joined the Lucas Group team. Garrett’s military background and experience as a candidate and client allow him to source ideal talent for mid-tier to Fortune 500 corporations.
Garrett stays busy with three young children, but he always makes time to watch his favorite football team—the Dallas Cowboys. He also enjoys playing golf when time allows.
