Tim Schumm

Founder, President

Tim Schumm spent 10 years within the Recruiting Industry at a nationally recognized firm in roles with progressive responsibility ranging from Recruiting, Local Sales, National Sales, & Operations Leadership. Becoming a top sales producer nationally for 3 consecutive years before being promoted into leadership, Tim eventually lead Chicagoland Sales & Recruiting Operations for 2 of the firms largest branches, where he provided day to day oversight over 70+ Sales, Recruiting, and Administrative employees.

From 2016-2018, Tim built a consulting practice focused on growth consulting to over 20+ SMB clients as well as growth phase, venture backed technology companies.

Based on his time in the recruiting industry as well as consulting to SMB clientele, Tim spotted a need to provide an alternative solution to the traditional recruiting model, which stuck clients with exorbitant fees, and undedicated support that often left both sides feeling at odds with each other.

Through his time in consulting to organizations between $5m – $100m, this need was more apparent due to smaller recruiting budgets and clients that lacked resources & expertise trying to accomplish the recruiting function on their own. Thus, Lucas James Talent Partners was born to provide exceptional service in a unique, consultative, dedicated, variable, and cost-effective model.
