competence and integrity...

 The Crossings Group Inc. understands the common dilemmas of home lenders ranging from operational stress to swings in production volume to talent deficiencies.  We also bring integrity with each search  manifested through raw and untainted recruiter, candidate and hiring manager feedback coupled with deep dig interviews via our job order navigator.

AND OLD FASHIONED NETWORKING

While we use best in class search software, our call to call, referral to referral daily effort creates leverage from relationships built over nearly two decades.   Our unparalleled retained service to our competitive contingent and container (hybrid between contingent and retainer) options, our old school hustle and diligence will bring you the candidate your organization needs.

Our clients speak for us

Very thorough and comprehensive search process that provides results. Enjoyed working with Joe L., who always kept me informed on candidates and got the job done

S. Lear

Bank President

Joe Lickteig and team have made a significant impact on the organizations I’ve worked in because of their candidate transparency, deep industry expertise and systematic search process. I look forward to the continued partnership

Rick Bechtel

Head of Mortgage TD Bank

Joe Lickteig provided outstanding service for us in finding a really good Chief Lending Officer for our organization. I would highly recommend the Crossing Group in your search for Loan Department executive.

Gary Nation

President, Central Federal Savings and Loan

Joe & his team did a great job helping us recruit to grow our branch network. He’s a solid, trustworthy guy who busted his butt to deliver strong results for us.

Brock B.

Co-owner, Veterans United Home Loans

Joe Lickteig is so good at what he does that it is almost unfair to label him as a recruiter. I have talked to him over the years as both a potential recruit and an employer, and found him to be the most informative, inquisitive and consultative talent acquisition guy out there. Joe is an effective and consistent communicator, and can help either side of the recruiting scenario analyze options and make great decisions.

Ken Niemann

President, Mortgage / Paramount Bank

Joe, Jim and The Crossings Group were an integral part in helping the branch network get started and grow. We all consider them just another member of our Veterans United family. If you are looking for a trustworthy partner to help in recruiting, you can’t go wrong with The Crossings Group. They have represented Veterans United very well.

Rob Quinn

National Production Manager /Veterans United

Joe Licktieg is a well versed mortgage professional. He is exceptionally diverse, knowledgeable, trustworthy and is a well-connected industry coach, confidante and recruiting professional. It is without reservation, Joe earns my recommendation!

Paul Diamond

Owner and CEO, Diamond Residential Mortgage Corp

Joe with The Crossings Group was great to work with. Helping us with what we were trying to find was a tall order and Joe delivered. He stuck with it and found us some fantastic candidates that we went on to hire. Not only did he find what we were looking for, it was also just a pleasure working with him. He is a great guy and we enjoyed the relationship both personally and professionally.

I have found Joe’s Data base, industry knowledge and professionalism to be invaluable over the past 10 plus years.

Jeff Gennarelli

CEO, BBMC Mortgage

Joe came highly recommended and after conducting several phone interviews of other executive search firms it was clear that The Crossings Group was our first choice. Joe spent time with me and key members of our management team to understand our need and our “story.” Joe clearly communicated during each step, provided multiple candidates for consideration, coordinated the interview process and then provided invaluable insight during the final stage of offer/negotiation. I felt a connection with him and that he truly understood our situation. I would not hesitate to call Joe again or recommend him to another bank.
