Assistant Branch Manager - Direct Hire
Everything in life comes down to drive and competitiveness. Gordon Bowen was a multisport athlete in high school, won state championships in two different sports and eventually played ice hockey in college. Upon graduating, he decided to go into sales as that would best suit his competitive drive.
With a background in professional sports ticket sales, prior to Lucas Group, Gordon worked for the Houston Astros for two-and-a-half years. He rose very quickly within the company, becoming #2 in sales while also managing other initiatives and duties. In that time, he was able to win the monthly MVP award on eight different occasions. Because of his impressive track record with the Astros, Gordon was recruited to Lucas Group.
Gordon came to Lucas Group in 2016 as an Executive Search Consultant in the Manufacturing practice. Gordon sources leading manufacturing talent for top employers throughout the Houston area and the greater state of Texas as well as Louisiana, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado. By building strategic partnerships with his clients and candidates, he is able to make long-term matches that are grounded in mutual respect and trust. Gordon enjoys having the ability to connect with individuals and align their interests and causes together. Tenacious and hard-working, Gordon has made his mark at the firm, treating each placement as a unique opportunity to bridge together employers and candidates forming mutually-beneficial relationships. His competitive spirit is what drives him to find the best qualified candidate faster than the competition.
Gordon holds a B.S. in Exercise Science: Sports Management from Rutgers University. In his spare time, he coaches a youth travel hockey team, the Houston Wild, who won the state championship in 2015. Gordon loves investing his time in helping young hockey players the way that coaches helped him.
