Lucas Group Opens Manufacturing Branch In Denver

19 November 2018

Leader in executive recruiting expanding opportunities for professionals in Mountain West

 ATLANTA, Ga. (November 19, 2018) – Lucas Group, ranked third on Forbes’ Best Professional Recruiting Firms list for 2018, has opened a manufacturing branch within its Denver office.

With a clear focus on finding candidates with the skills necessary to drive results in a rapidly changing landscape, Lucas Group is expanding its network of recruiters that locate and place the most talented individuals in manufacturing, supply chain, logistics and engineering. Led by Charlie Wilgus, General Manager of the Manufacturing practice group, the division has excelled in finding candidates with proven leadership experience across all functions within a supply chain to include procurement, plant management, quality, distribution and more.

“As we continue evolving to meet the changing needs of the manufacturing industry, it is also critical that we adapt to geographic trends,” said Wilgus. “Between the exploding popularity of Colorado as a destination for talent and the growth in opportunities on the West Coast, it seemed like a natural progression to have a dedicated manufacturing branch in our Denver office.”

The Denver manufacturing branch will be overseen by Nick Tucker, who joins Lucas Group as a Managing Partner with an accomplished career as an E-5 Sergeant and Amphibious Assault Crew Chief in the U.S. Marine Corps, as well as more than 12 years of experience in various producer and manager roles within staffing and recruiting companies. A Northern Colorado native, Tucker previously co-founded two companies that specialized in contract staffing and direct hires, Velocity Energy Partners, Inc. and Echo Mountain Resources.

“Nick brings an incredibly diverse background to our company and is well-suited to direct our new team in Denver,” said Wilgus. “Between the leadership skills he acquired as a Marine and his success as a proven producer and leader in this industry, we are lucky to have him at Lucas Group.  We are excited to see this new Denver manufacturing team grow and take shape under his guidance.”
