Jonathan Shelton joined The Lee Group in 2019 and serves as the staffing firm’s Business Development Manager in its Richmond office.
With many years of experience in sales, Shelton brings with him a relationship-driven business philosophy that translates perfectly to the staffing and executive search industry.
Though born in Hot Springs, AK, Shelton has called the Richmond area home since he was 3-years-old. He attended Virginia Commonwealth University where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business with a major in Real Estate.
For Shelton, The Lee Group difference means “serving our industry – both small and large companies – with a local touch. We treat everyone, no matter the industry, with the same respect and provide our clients with the best customer service and employee placement.”
On a typical day, Shelton will research his client list for the day and then visit companies in his assigned territory. He spends time setting up meetings with managers and human resource directors and focuses on creating and maintaining relationships within the local business community.
Making sure businesses have the right employees is important to Shelton because “having a good fit means everything.”
“Having a good job and matching the right people up to succeed is fulfilling,” he said.
Shelton particularly enjoys face-to-face interaction with people, creating relationships, and providing clients with solutions.
Outside of work, Shelton spends time with his wife Tori, daughter Kinsley and bulldog Sydney. He also loves to cook and is a big Michigan Wolverine fan. He follows their baseball, basketball, hockey and women’s softball teams, but his favorite sport is college football.
