Leadership Model

Developed with neuroscientist Dr. Robert Cooper, the inception of the Y Scouts Leadership Model is still the proven model used today.

Hiring on Purpose

We don’t do placements. We align leaders and work. Placement is a cold top-down approach, focusing on resumes and filling empty seats. By hiring on purpose, we take the broken vertical model and flip it on its side, creating horizontal alignment between leader and company. We bridge the gap between business’ purpose and a leader’s passions and strengths. It is purposeful and methodical and driven by empathy. It’s why we exist.

Over the course of Sammy’s career, he has worked in general practice senior management level executive search, has managed entry-level talent acquisition strategy and execution within the big-4, and led talent acquisition at a SaaS startup supporting the cannabis sector. He is passionate about developing high-performing recruiters, creating recruiting structures, and finding the right “purple unicorn” for clients.

Sammy was born and raised in Alabama, Roll Tide! He has a B.S and M.S. in accounting from the University of Kansas, Rock Chalk Jayhawk! His professional career took off in Chicago where he explored and ate his way through the city for 7 years before moving to Denver with his fiance Danielle and their dog, Bartholomew (Miniature Schnauzer).

During his free time, Sammy loves traveling the world and exploring the outdoors as much as possible via hiking, camping, road-tripping, and snowboarding.
