The trip is awarded to our Top Producer AND a guest, who can be their spouse, close friend or kids…it’s our way to say thank you to those who have supported us and our people throughout the year as well.”
In their own words, Redfish Technology Top Producers on what it means to win the award:
Meredith Dean, Lead Recruiter: “Something that is important to me is being recognized for my hard work and achievements and Redfish’s Top Producer Award does just that. I love to travel internationally and our Top Producer Award has taken me to Hungary, Czech Republic, Iceland, Guatemala, and Ireland.”
Leah O’Flynn, Chief Revenue Officer: “In 2014 I won Top Producer and it was one of the highlights of my career for a few reasons. The main reason was that 2014 was my ‘A ha’ moment for recruiting. It took two years for me to really find my flow around technology, sales and strategy. It accumulated to me winning Top Producer – the secret was matching those skills with my work ethic. I look back now and it was more than a vacation because I took my childhood best friend and soon after we each got married and had kids. More than likely, it will be 10+ years before we can justify us running away together without family. I’m super thankful to Redfish for giving me these memories with Leah – yes, her name is Leah as well.”
Jon Piggins, Executive Recruiter: “Winning Top producer meant a lot to me because of all the hard work, help from my colleagues, late nights & weekends it took to make it happen. It was extra special because Redfish sent both of my daughters with me, which was such a nice way to let them see how hard work pays off & thank them for the sacrifices they made when I was putting in extra effort at work.”

Today, with increased outsourcing of manufacturing, the American workforce has increasingly become more service and value-added oriented. The gold collar workers may now represent 70% of the workforce. Read more »
