About Melissa Martinet
There are peak performers, super stars, and then the unbelievably successful diamonds in the rough. What does that diamond look like? Perfectly transparent, exquisite, brilliant, flawless, and organic perhaps?
I am Melissa Martinet and I bring to the Lincoln Group over 20 years of human capital management experience in the Denver Market and will be serving as a Managing Director.
A master at fostering win-win solutions, my diverse experiences provide a deep level of understanding of multiple markets, saving Human Resource teams’ valuable time. I do my homework, listen, and learn about my client company’s needs and wants, and am passionate at finding a right fit for all parties.
It all began in 1995 at CORESTAFF Services as an Account Executive. I set my personal bar high, practiced self-discipline, and established a consistent work routine, generating over $1MM in new business in my rookie year. I rose into leadership as a Selling Branch Manager and was subsequently recognized as Regional Branch of the Year for 1998 and 1999.
I joined forces with Ultimate Staffing (Roth Staffing) Services in 2004 as a Major Account Executive and Area Sales Manager. Within six months, I was awarded Partner status as I continued to blaze new trails by opening new offices while remaining at the top of the leader board.
However, I am more than just a top 5% Sales Executive who builds from scratch, my career also includes leadership roles such as being the President of Rainmaker Resources, Inc.; an Executive Recruiter for AllSearch Professional Staffing; the Selling Branch Manager for Advantage Staffing; Market Manager for StaffMark; and Division Director for Accounting Principals/Ajilon. There is no secret to my success. In up or down markets, I value relationships.
I earned my BA in Sociology from the University of Colorado and recently was the Chair of the Business Retention Task Force for Adams County Economic Development Council.
My memberships have included SHRM, Denver Workforce Investment Board and CU Alumni Association.
On a personal level, when pressed for three words that describe me: I share that I am Fun, Fierce, and Loyal. When not at work I can be found enjoying time with family & friends, attending music festivals, exotic trips, sipping a good bourbon and spending time in the outdoors (hiking, golfing, skiing & biking). As a 5th generation Colorado Native, I enjoy spending time at my family’s ranch in southern Colorado.
Staying connected to the community, I volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House and Colorado Pet Pantry.
“Melissa is very sales driven, effective at communicating results, a valuable team leader, and a great fit professionally!”
“Melissa is a leader, a person that sets the bar high for her colleagues, she is a true mentor to her staff, a trusted colleague and a pleasure to work with. Melissa has a drive for success, and she does not stop until she meets the goal. She is excellent with her customers and her sales ability is outstanding. She is absolutely amazing at forming lasting relationships.”
“Melissa was absolutely wonderful to work with. I learned so much from her. Melissa showed me what I was doing right and how to make it better. She made recommendations on my presentations of candidates to clients and increased my placements by 50%. I could send Melissa to any one of my clients and she was able to build a rapport immediately … Together we were able to increase revenue during an economic downturn.”
“Melissa works very hard to achieve and excel at her tasks. Melissa provided my company with excellent service and exceeded my expectations.”
“I’ve worked with many sales reps but only a very few whom I would hire again. Melissa is someone I would hire again in a second if I had something available. I would take her work ethic over experience any day. She works to make her customers successful as well as herself.”
“I’ve utilized Melissa’s services for several years now and have always been impressed with her professionalism and efficiency in providing great candidates for my postings. She makes you feel like a top priority and strives to fill the openings quickly and with well qualified candidates.”
“I can truly say she is an amazing boss, person, and mentor. As my manager, she always encouraged and motivated others to succeed and was very enjoyable to work with. Since the day I met her, she was always super positive, supportive, and personable. I have always admired her professionalism and ability to connect with others. Melissa is a wonderful leader and coach. She thrives working in a team-oriented environment. She continuously provided guidance and feedback to her teams and individually. Melissa was a pleasure to work with and will be an asset to any company.”
“Melissa, you are the best recruiter I have ever worked with. I have never felt more supported. You literally called me every day and walked me through the entire process on finding a new job, preparing for the interviews, debriefing me, and the resignation process, which can be a daunting experience when you have been with the same company for 13 years.”
“No matter how it turns out I have truly enjoyed working with you and Amanda. By far, the most responsive and helpful recruiters I have ever worked with, and I’ve worked with them all including Korn Ferry and you are both hands down my favorite!”
“Melissa, you are really good at what you do. You are the best recruiter I have ever worked with! Thank you”
“Melissa you are my favorite recruiter!”
“No one has ever prepared me for a job interview or how to succeed in a role like Lincoln Group has. I love working with you!”
“The best part of putting me in front of your client to interview was working with you, Melissa! I was blown away at how different Lincoln Group is from other search firms. I will definitely use Lincoln Group in the future to staff for my departments!”
“I felt like we bonded after our first conversation, felt welcomed and safe. “I had such a wonderful experience with Melissa Martinet. I have spoken to other recruiters, and we just had surface conversations. Since my first conversation with Melissa, I knew she was “hearing” me, and understood my professional career path. She kept me up to date on employment opportunities, and quickly arranged for me to interview. She paired me with a great new employer. I highly recommend Melissa Martinet and Lincoln Group for your recruiting needs.”
