CORE VENTURES STORY
In 2010 Blake Frye started Core Leadership, a program designed to mentor and develop c-level business leaders. As he listened to the various challenges his participants were facing at their companies a reoccurring theme bubbled to the service. The most prominent pain point for each of them was an inability to source, vet, and retain talent.
With a background in headhunting, Blake offered to help these leaders by building a non-contingent recruiting model. His innovative approach to recruiting played a major role in the growth of the clients he was servicing. Thus, the recruiting arm of Core Leadership was born.
With the leadership development work blossoming and the recruiting arm continuing to produce Blake decided it was time to separate the two businesses. In 2015 he approached Matt Thomas about taking the reigns on the recruiting side. In 2016 Core Ventures spun off of Core Leadership to focus primarily on staffing and recruiting.
Today Core Ventures serves companies across industries and across the country. We believe that our flat fee recruiting model is a necessary disruption to an industry that has long gouged clients with exorbitant fees. Our service and performance are second to none. We love our clients and are privileged to come alongside them in finding great people to grow their business.
