What our Clients say
Having spent the better part of a year and a half trying to hire talent through conventional means, without success, we turned to Chris Spradlin of the Spradlin Group. Within weeks we had multiple candidates to interview that had been thoroughly interviewed… multiple times before they made their way to our team…we made a best in class hire. So pleased were we with Chris’s services, we have engaged him again to fill another position. Chris and the SSG team is awesome.“
Mark Krittenbrink, PresidentKrittenbrink Architecture LLC.
Working with Chris was an awesome experience. He learned about our needs, listened to us, asked the right questions, and provided appropriate needed feedback and consultation along the way. He helped us fill one role in our church with a super high capacity leader. We’ll use him again and I’d encourage your church to use him when possible.“

K. Todd Storch, Former CEOKindrid
As a pastor of a growing church, getting the right staff on my team is imperative! It’s also very challenging to keep the wheels turning and find the perfect staff member at the same time. The Chris Spradlin Search Group made the process a joy. They took all of the guesswork out of it and they were amazing to work with. I will never hire staff outside of using their process again. It has been a big success. I highly recommend Chris and his staff for your hiring needs.“
Jeff Lovew, Lead Teaching PastorAlive Church
I wanted to personally thank you and your team for the impeccable job that Spradlin Search group achieved on behalf of JXCS Technology and Drive Thru On Demand. After months of getting nowhere, I found that SSG utilized what seemingly is their own special sauce to achieve what we couldn’t on our own. I know that the criteria we gave you was daunting at best but the fulfillment of the CTO partnership has allowed us to launch after months of delay. My sincere thanks to you and your team and we look forward to utilizing SSG in the near future.“
John Carlew, JXCS/DTODJXCS Technology / Drive Thru On Demand
Chris really spent time getting to know not only our skills requirements, but our culture and values as well. As a result he was able to send us only great matches and filtered out all the noise. The success of our team today is a reflection of his hard work and partnership, and we’re glad he’s on our team!“
Bob Liberty, Senior EngineerOne Hope
SSG was awesome to work with. We sat down with them and gave them our objective that we we’re looking for in a new Business Development person. They outlined a timeline, exceeded that timeline in bringing us three qualified candidates and helped us secure our first choice. SSG is a first class company and delivers what they promise.“
Bob Armstrong, FDC ConstructionCEO
