Provide companies with a customized, contingency search for key talent


Mark Spino

Mark graduated from Benedictine High School in 1983, and graduated from Kent State University in 1989, with a BS in Secondary Education.  He taught school until 1994, then changed careers into the manufacturing sector. He changed careers again in 2000, to the recruiting field. He initially interviewed for a production manager position with one of the clients listed with the Rogers Group Search Firm, but ended up accepting a position as an executive recruiter with them instead.  From 2000 to 2016, Mark steadily progressed with the Rogers Group, leading the company in production five times, while building a good reputation with his clients and candidates.  Mark left the Rogers Group in April of 2016 to form Premier Search Consultants.

Jerry Baron

Jerry has been in the recruiting industry for over forty years.  Mark and Jerry worked together at the Rogers Group for 16 years, and developed a good friendship.  Jerry is semi-retired, working with a few key clients that he values greatly and has remained close with over the years.


The team at Premier Search Consultants has a commitment to honoring agreements.


We don’t waste the employers time, nor the candidates

We have an industry track record of filling 1 out of every 2 positions we set up interviews for. And of the positions we fill, we have a track record of needing only 2 candidates to be interviewed to get the right person. We don’t waste the employers time, nor the candidates. Our goal for service to employers is to offer a customized service, limiting the amount of time they need to spend reviewing resumes/interviewing candidates. And our goal for service to candidates is to present opportunities that are a great match for their background and are opportunities that are going to be of interest to them.
