Co-Founder and Sr. Recruiter
Just like anyone else in this business, recruiting found me. I was fortunate to learn from one of the best in the business, John Peterson, and he and I have now forged a partnership together going on 17 years now. This business is challenging in a number of ways, but one of the things I’m convinced of is that working hard and doing the right thing pays off in the end. I’m grateful for the flexibility this job affords me because it affords me a work/life balance I would not have in most other jobs.
Short interview with Adam Krueger:
What is the most unusual place you have ever been? I would have to say that most unusual/interesting place I have ever been in the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. There is a very large Mayan pyramid there, and at that at the time I went (early 2000s) you could climb on in, which I think has since been banned. It is very well-preserved and I believe it is one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. If you ever find yourself in Cancun or in Playa Del Carmen, it it well-worth the day-trip to go and see it.
What do you like to read? I can find a way to like almost anything, as long as it’s well-written. When left to my own choices, I typically veer towards non-fiction, and I particularly enjoy history. I seem to go through cycles; sometimes I like non-fiction, sometimes I like theology, sometimes I just like a good story...one author I discovered within the past few years is Cormac McCarthy. I was part of a book club and we read "All the Pretty Horses" and found myself really enjoying his writing style and the way he brings things to life.
What are your greatest achievements in life so far? Over 15 years of marriage to my wife Leslie, our growing family (3 kids), and starting Sun Recruiting with John.
If you couldn’t be a recruiter, what other occupation would you do? I would love to work in the front-office for my favorite baseball team, the Minnesota Twins. That would be a dream job. Another one I tried to get into once upon a time was being a detective, though in hindsight I am grateful that did not work out.
What quality do you admire most in others? The people I admire the most are those people that you meet or get to know that make you want to be a better person. I also admire consistency of character - when I am able to observe someone in a number of different settings and they are consistent, that tells me something about them.
