An Executive Recruiter has the unique privilege of changing lives. Nothing impacts a company’s success or failure more than its talent. As an IT professional, working with top companies and technology can shape your career, and matching top-level talent with leading companies is David Burleson’s business.

David came to Lucas Group with an impressive 18-year track record in Executive Search. With the ability to fill the most complex IT roles, David has gained a reputation of being the “go to” recruiter for the most challenging search assignments. As a Senior Executive Search Consultant in Lucas Group’s Tampa IT practice group, he works with leading employers to identify and source the game-changing technology professionals who will shape their future.

Before Lucas Group, David spent nearly ten years working in the Information Technology vertical and nine years working on “C-suite” and health care executive search. With more than 18 years of industry experience, he has thrived in large, publicly-traded recruiting firms as well as small, boutique executive search organizations. Throughout his extensive tenure, David has been recognized as top recruiter countless times and received numerous awards for his performance. David’s experience working in recruiting firms of all sizes and his unparalleled industry knowledge have allowed him to establish himself as a “must know” in executive search.

Unlike many recruiters, David sought out a career in executive search. A voracious learner who is highly invested in his recruiting career, David spends his free time reading, listening to podcasts and studying technology to stay abreast of the continued evolution of IT and how that impacts his client and candidate partners.
