During his five-year tenure with the local firm, O’Neill served as both a division leader and individual contributor. He held responsibilities for managing a team of Associate recruiters, leading strategies to penetrate new accounts and grow existing clients, developing training materials and instituting effective metrics-tracking processes. O’Neill’s business experience also includes sales and account management positions in commercial insurance and transportation.

“Andrew’s impressive combination of market knowledge, recruitment experience, leadership capabilities and professional acumen solidifies him as an ideal leader to launch our Cincinnati A&F operations and help guide our company in delivering results throughout the region,” said Palumbo. “We welcome Andrew to Lucas Group and look forward to his continued success.”
