Shaun HuffmanBranch Manager

Shaun Huffman, Branch Manager of our Springfield office, loves working with people and making deals happen. He also loves watching St. Louis Cardinals baseball, hunting, fishing, and traveling. Especially RV travel.

He’s been involved in the IT staffing industry since 2005, when he became a recruiter for a defense contracting company after seven years as a mechanic in the Air Force.

Boating across the Florida Straits to fish in the Bahamas, sky diving, and learning guitar are all on Shaun’s bucket list. For now, he enjoys time with his wife and two kids.

Jeff JohnsonRecruiting Manager

Being the second oldest of seven children, Recruiting Manager Jeff Johnson can handle anything. Jeff has lived in Central Illinois his entire life and grew up in a small town about an hour south of Springfield – he has enjoyed it for the most part, but could do without the winters.

He lives and dies with the Cubbies each and every season and would love to see the Cubs play in all 30 MLB stadiums. Jeff also dreams of visiting all 50 states and to get kicked out of a casino for winning too much money. When not in the office, he spends his time with his wife (Stephanie), stepson (Cooper), and his chocolate lab (Sammie). He enjoys playing softball, training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and working with cars.

A close family friend of Jeff’s worked at LRS from the early 1980s to the mid 1990s and always had great things to say about the company... so the ball started rolling from there. "My favorite thing about IT Staffing is at times my least favorite thing about IT Staffing:  It is unpredictable.  No 2 days are EVER the same."

Rachael SpencerTechnical Recruiter

Born and raised in Springfield, IL, Rachael Spencer would pass by LRS headquarters and dream of working here and play in the fountain. She officially joined as a Technical Recruiter in 2009 and has enjoyed helping people find work that makes them happy. Sadly, she still hasn’t played in the fountain.

Artist and active – Rachael enjoys painting, decorating/redecorating, crafting, working out with HIIT and yoga, and singing and dancing in her car therefore entertaining other commuters.

Seeing her kids live happy, wonderful lives well into old age is at the top of her bucket list. She would also love to travel the globe, with Greece as her first stop, and to own an Airstream.

Jake LohrenzAccount Executive

Jake Lohrenz, Account Executive, loves building and woodworking, so it’s no surprise that building a home in the mountains is on his bucket list. He loves being active, so you’ll find him coaching youth sports, boating, fishing, or playing golf.

Sometimes he just hangs out with the family.

Jake had graduated from our Associate Recruiter training program when the chance to transition to Account Executive opened up. "This opportunity fit my personality better as it is more face to face interaction and meeting directly with our clients to help them locate the best IT talent."

And that’s his favorite part about IT staffing. Jake gets to meet many clients, work on new challenges, and keep learning new things almost every day. He also gets to help people and organizations succeed, which he loves.
