Lucas Group Hires Recruitment Leader O’Neill in Cincinnati
Lucas Group announced the appointment of Andrew O’Neill as the firm’s newest Managing Partner in the Accounting & Finance Division. A local leader in the Cincinnati recruiting market, Mr O’Neill is tasked with contributing to the firm’s continued success via the launch and growth of its Cincinnati A&F branch. He joins Sara Luther, Cincinnati Managing Partner for Lucas Group’s Human Resources Division, in expanding the firm’s business throughout the Ohio River Valley.
“Bringing Andrew onboard as part of our Cincinnati leadership team is reflective of Lucas Group’s commitment to helping businesses grow and succeed with knowledgeable, consultative and market-based solutions,” said Victor Palumbo, Area Manager for Lucas Group’s Accounting & Finance Division. “Our mission is to help companies solve real business challenges through the identification and delivery of top talent. We provide comprehensive, national reach blended with local expertise and market-specific insights to create effective, results-oriented talent matches.”
A longtime area professional, Mr O’Neill brings nearly a decade of demonstrated business experience and Cincinnati market knowledge to his role. Prior to joining Lucas Group, Mr O’Neill was Business Development Lead with Cincinnati-based Aquarius Professional Staffing. During his five-year tenure with the local firm, Mr 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. Mr 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.”
A graduate of Miami University in Oxford, OH, Mr O’Neill was an accomplished leader in the university’s Men’s Swimming and Diving team, where he earned four varsity letters and was twice tapped as an All Mid-American Conference second.
Mr O’Neill launched A&F branch operations in Cincinnati earlier this summer. Currently, the firm is renovating permanent office space on East 4th Street, and construction is scheduled for completion in early fall.
