Wes Ashworth is Executive Search Consultant at The Lee Group, specializing in recruiting manufacturing professionals nationwide for the Plastics, Packaging, Chemical, Elastomer, and Printing industries.
Since joining the firm in 2014, Wes has been a strong believer in The Lee Group difference, which focuses on caring. Wes takes the valuable time needed to get to know clients and their unique needs on a deeper level, as well as build trusted relationships with candidates filling those needs. Unlike some who might take job descriptions and line up resumes based on skills alone, Wes goes the extra mile to find the optimal fit – ensuring satisfaction and productivity for both parties.
For Wes, fit is the name of the game. Finding the candidate that fits the company and the company that fits the candidate are both critical. Only with a carefully evaluated fit will a candidate be positioned for success and enjoy their job. In turn, the company will benefit from an engaged employee who is a top performer over the long term.
Wes’ laser focus on fit and long-term success has served him well. He recalls a manufacturing client who turned to The Lee Group with job openings that several other agencies could not fill after more than six months of searching for candidates. Wes and team took the time to learn about the company and get up to speed on the nuances of the specific job requirement. Within a few weeks, he was able to fill the position with an outstanding candidate. And today, Wes counts the company as one of his most loyal clients.
When he’s not matching candidates with positions, Wes enjoys spending quality time with his family and being around the water – piloting his kayak, catching a fish, or simply relaxing at the beach.
