Chris Jordan

Chris JordanBranch Manager, Chicago, Illinois

Chris Jordan, Branch Manager in Chicago, has 10 years of experience in the technology staffing industry. He began his career working for a large international, global staffing firm in which he started off as a Account Executive. Throughout his career, he has won numerous company awards by taking pride in building strong relationships and understanding his client’s point-of-view. His greatest joy comes from growing new markets and loves the challenge of introducing the LRS story to Chicago. Chris has groomed and trained over a dozen Account Managers and Recruiters during his tenure. He is actively involved with IC STARS and SIM Chicago.

As an avid runner and golfer, it only makes sense that his bucket list consists of playing Augusta National, running the Boston Marathon, and traveling to Europe. He is also a guitar junkie (often playing at open mic nights) and enjoys hanging out with his family including his twin boys, Colton and Lucas, and wife, Maria.

Chris says his favorite part about IT Staffing is "every win helps a person advance their career and helps a customer build their technology platform."

Eric Wolf

Eric WolfTechnical Recruiter

Springfield, Illinois native Eric Wolf made the move north to join the Chicago team as technical recruiter. Although he grew up near LRS headquarters, the job sort of fell into his lap after getting a call from his friend and colleague Reid.

“My favorite part about working in IT staffing is the cool people you talk to along the way and getting to help someone find a job they are excited and happy to do.”

Eric isn’t one you want to mess with – one of his hobbies includes training in kickboxing and jiujitsu. He also enjoys listening to music, hanging out with friends and family, eating Italian food, and playing Xbox. His bucket list? Going on a cruise, traveling to Australia, and to be on Joe Rogan’s podcast.

Brandon Reed

Brandon ReedTechnical Recruiter

Technical Recruiter Brandon Reed has lived in Batavia, IL his whole life until making his way to downtown Chicago recently. Prior to joining LRS, Brandon attended Illinois State University where he studied Communications.

Brandon’s hobbies include going out to eat (although he’s no Bobby Flay), watching or playing sports, hanging out with his dogs, and attending concerts/festivals.

With a love for sports and Chicago, his bucket list is topped with seeing a Chicago sports team (preferably the Bears) win a Championship in person and party with the city. The list also includes seeing a concert at Red Rocks in Denver and traveling to Europe to take in some new sights.

“I didn’t necessarily know what I wanted to do right out of college. I knew I loved helping people and have always had a pretty good handle on customer service. There was something about the thought of building and maintaining lasting relationships that seemed intriguing to me. My friend had gotten a job with LRS and I heard really good things about it from her, so I applied and fortunately was given the opportunity. I’m very thankful for everything LRS has done for me and they really treat their employees well. My favorite part about the job is being able to talk to people from different walks of life everyday and making lasting connections.”
