About the brand
Rockstar Recruiting was born out of necessity and was the vision of Mark Venters. After a successful career in Industrial Sales and Recruiting, Mark opened his first recruiting firm, Venters Recruits. He and his team built a loyal client base in the Industrial and Construction sectors focusing on Sales and Sr. Management positions. Their goal was simple, with every client they took on, help them grow their business. Mark knew that for Venters Recruits to be successful, they needed a laser focus on their niche, whenever they were asked to take on a search out side of their niche the answer was always ““We are an Industrial and Construction Recruiting Specialist firm…not a Generalist.”
The problem was that many of his clients said that they desperately needed Skilled Trades People and not having them was preventing them from growing. Mark wanted to help but didn’t want to dilute the focus at Venters Recruits, the solution was to create Rockstar Recruiting.
Mark brought together a team of recruiters that had experience and expertise with Skilled Trades Recruiting. They formed 3 separate divisions (Rockstar HVAC, Rockstar Millwrights and Rockstar Mechanics) with dedicated staff for each division.
Rockstar has taken off faster than anyone could have imagined but we retain the same goal that got us started, helping our clients grow their business. We believe in Partnerships over Pressure and are here for the long term, not just the next deal.
