The 3 Main Challenges
Our Clients Face Finding Building Products Leaders
We Can Help You Find
THE PEOPLE THAT
DRIVE TOP LINE SALES GROWTH
AND IMPROVE BOTTOM LINE PROFITABILITY
Few things are more important to the success of your business than getting key hires right.
Engaged search provides the expertise and high-end service level of retained search, with a strong pay-for-performance aspect.
Our fee structure includes a flat engagement fee to start the search, but the vast majority of our fee isn’t earned until your new hire starts. We understand that working with an executive recruiter is an investment and we’ve designed our 4-stage Recruiting Blueprint search process to ensure you get a strong return on your investment.
Of course, we also offer a guarantee. Yet, we prefer to get it right the first time, which is why our last replacement was over a decade ago.
You can learn more about each of the 4 stages of The Recruiting Blueprint below, but the best way to learn if we’re worth the investment is to book a no-obligation Discovery Session to learn if Building Gurus is the right recruiting partner for you.

Our 4-Stage Search Process
The Recruiting Blueprint
Scope + Specs
Our search process starts with a kick-off call to help us understand your business and culture. Then we dig into the opportunity. We can even use a patented job benchmarking process to set you up for success.
Design + Deliver
We combine your ideal hire profile and our expert-level knowledge of recruiting for top sales reps, managers and leaders in building products to design your customized recruiting strategy that delivers best-in-class sales, leaders, and executives.
Vet + Validate
With your Ideal Hire Profile at the heart of our search, we’ll identify and review hundreds of people, conduct in-depth interviews and ultimately present the top 1% of the market so you can choose with confidence.
Welcome + Warranty
This is when the focus shifts from recruiting to retaining. We rarely get it wrong (in fact, it’s been over a decade), but if we do you’re covered by our guarantee. When they start, we don't stop. We keep in touch for a full year after they start.
THE BUILDING GURUS Difference
You’re probably wondering how we can deliver candidates that your in-house or current recruiting partner hasn’t been able to. Hiring great talent is a key part of your business, but it’s the reason we’re in business. We invest in tools, technology, and resources to ensure we’ve always got the best “inventory” of talent at our fingertips. Building world-class best practices and an employer brand that gets and keeps the attention of A-players is key to our success. When you hire us, you immediately benefit from the years we’ve spent building our brand and relationships with sales, managers, and leaders in the building products industry.
Here are just a few strategies we use to ensure we can deliver best-in-class building products sales, manager, and executive level talent fast:
Building Gurus is
✔︎ Woman-owned (state-certified, if you're into that sort of thing)
✔︎ Xennial-owned (that means we’re fluent in Gen Z, Millennial, Gen X, and Baby Boomer. We know you’re into that sort of thing…)
✔︎ We’re digital natives (that means we barely remember life before the internet…)
But our founder also grew up on a farm in North Dakota and raised chickens, pigs, cows, and horses in a big red barn.
So if you want a firm that pairs Midwest honesty and work ethic with cutting-edge technology to help you find and hire the best sales, management and executive talent for your “must-get-right” openings, we’re the firm for you.
