"The building industry is full of straight-shooters who will tell you what they think," explains Rikka Brandon of Building Gurus.

Brandon has been in recruiting in the building industry for more than seven years. "I got into an executive training program and learned to love Human Resources. I had to recruit 250 positions in four months and found I had a real talent for recruiting."
Rikka then moved on to doing national recruiting for Pella Windows for two years. Discovering she had a passion for the building industry, she decided to strike out on her own, constructing what would become an international recruiting organization from a small basement office. Within just a few years, the company moved into a suite of offices and began hiring additional recruiters. In the five years following its humble beginnings, Building Resources was redesigned into Building Gurus and has closed hundreds of searches.
"The building industry is like no other," said Brandon. "We have a lot of repeat clients and we've survived downturns in the industry and come out stronger. When the market gets light, you're not allowed the luxury of poor decisions, so we apply the lessons learned in the past."
Rikka Brandon and Erin Mayer, now partners in Building Gurus, have dovetailed their broad-spectrum talents and personalities into a cohesive unit.
Brandon is the visionary. "I have two things about me that are dangerous," she said. "I live five to ten years in the future and as soon as I'm near a goal, I change it."
Rikka described Erin in one word - reliable.
Brandon, 31, is surprised she found her niche so early in life, and in such a relatively obscure business. "There are fewer than 15 recruiting firms focused on the building products side," she said. "The building industry is extremely misunderstood and extremely complicated. I deal with intelligent people who are changing the face of the earth. They're sharp, progressive, and are not willing or able to settle for average."
Brandon knows the only way to stay alive in this business is to remain authentic.
"This is an awesome time for companies to top grade," advises Brandon. "There are a lot of great people on the market right now. The people we're currently recruiting are A-class."
Brandon uses one word to describe the mission of Building Gurus - passion. "For us, recruiting is like breathing, it's had to believe this is our job. We've built long-standing relationships, have many repeat clients and have clients we'd walk through fire for."
If Rikka Brandon is the kite, Erin is holding the string.
When Rikka hired Erin as her Director of Business Development in 2003, it took an instinctual leap of faith for Mayer to accept the challenge.
"Rikka had three clients at the time," said Mayer.
Both Mayer and Brandon hold the same philosophy when it comes to recruiting.
