a recruiting team working for you

The Echo Edge works because of Echo founding partners’ distinctive skill sets — Amit is the culture king; Daren, the bird dog; Scott, the accountant and Nate, the dot-connector. Together, they’re the ultimate search team; the only team that could create this uniquely consultative approach rooted in their 70+ years of recruiting experience and just plain love of the business.  

After its founding serving the accounting and finance industry, Echo Search Group brings the Echo Edge to business operations with the talents of Calvin Fisher and Darren Kent. They bring Echo’s broad, team-boosted network and refined, laser-focused selection process to work across multiple industries.
