For military candidates, the job search process can be more than challenging. Targeting the right job, expressing and transferring skills to civilian terms and acing the interview phase can be daunting. Meanwhile employers are concerned with finding the right candidate who can drive results and ultimately add value to the bottom line. With an extensive background in high-performance recruiting and a passion for assisting fellow veterans with achieving their goals, Brian Finnegan eases the employment process for both veterans and employers, yielding exceptional results and building long-lasting careers.

Brian joined Lucas Group in 2014 as Senior Partner in the Military Transition Division, placing high caliber military candidates in ideal civilian positions throughout the Atlanta metro area. As Senior Partner over the Military Division, he thrives in Lucas Group’s high-performance, professional, collegial culture that is based on a commitment to doing the right thing for each and every client and candidate. A career coach, consummate work and tireless advocate, Brian enjoys helping both his candidates and clients meet and exceed their career and business objectives. By carefully listening to both parties’ needs, he sets realistic career expectations, leverages candidate strengths in relation to employer needs and establishes clear lines of communication to make strategic, long-term placements that benefit both client and candidate.

Brian’s recruiting career began in 2000 with a major, military-focused job placement services company where he found his true calling as a recruiting leader. During his tenure, he quickly progressed to Regional Operations/Branch Manager in 2002 and won Sales Branch of the Year in 2009 during the worst year of the economic decline. His zeal for helping veterans stems from his distinguished military career that included serving as a US Army First Sergeant in post-Cold War Germany.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Brian and his family now call Atlanta home. They enjoy everything fitness-related including outdoor sports, weight lifting and community walks for charitable causes.
