Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 05, 2014
Lucas Group today announced the appointment of David Lively as the new Managing Partner for the firm’s Human Resources Practice Group in Atlanta. A graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and Captain in the Army through three tours in Iraq, Lively worked in military recruiting prior to joining Lucas Group.
“David is the embodiment of the valuable skills veteran officers can bring to the world of business,” said Aram Lulla, General Manager of Lucas Group’s Human Resources Practice Group. “He has distinguished himself as a professional with exceptional leadership talent and has demonstrated an ability to truly listen and quickly act upon what he learns. David has the capability to make a profound, positive impact on our Atlanta office,” said Lulla.
Lively brings a diverse and results-oriented background to his new position. Previously a branch manager for a military transition firm, he combines highly regarded leadership skills with strong professional capabilities and business acumen. Responsible for the development and execution of his team’s overall operations, Lively achieved both financial and organizational success in his previous role, increasing revenue by 70 percent and doubling operations over a two-year period.
His military career is equally impressive. Upon graduation from West Point, Lively served as a Cavalry Officer in the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division, deploying to Iraq for a total of 38 months across three separate deployments and earning two Bronze Star Medals. He led organizations ranging in size from a 12-man Iraqi Army advisor team in Baghdad up to a 100+ soldier Reconnaissance Troop in northwestern Iraq along the Syrian border.
“David brings a high level of professionalism and integrity to every opportunity,” said Lulla. “He will be an excellent resource to clients and candidates alike, and his strong leadership skills will be central to expanding our Atlanta HR practice with talented, high-achieving Associates. We welcome David to our management team and look forward to his success.”
