Recruiting Toolbox welcomes Matt Grove, Principal Consultant, based in Chicago

Matt Grove HeadshotRecruiting Toolbox, Inc. is pleased to welcome Matt Grove to the team as a Principal Consultant, based in Chicago.

Matt brings more than 15 years of talent acquisition and talent management experience to Recruiting Toolbox, including a long tenure at KPMG - a Big Four consultancy with more than 150,000 employees. While at KPMG, he built and led the firm’s US dedicated sourcing function, which is now the model being implemented by other KPMG teams globally, and led full cycle recruitment teams as the US Director of Experienced Hire Recruiting for Tax.

Now, as a Principal Consultant with Recruiting Toolbox, he will help clients build and deploy the right recruitment strategies and processes, train sourcers, recruiters and interviewers, and bring his real-world, practitioner focus to make it all work well together – people + process + technology.

“I’ve been helping teams recruit better for over 15 years,” says Grove. “Now, as part of the Recruiting Toolbox team, I'll be working with clients to help them design the right sourcing model and strategies, improve their processes, and train up their teams so that they can hire world class global talent.”

John Vlastelica, Founder and Managing Director, adds, “We’ve been helping companies recruit better since 2002. With Matt's expertise, we’ll bring our clients even more value, with an even stronger set of capabilities around sourcing strategy, recruitment process, and training. Matt is a fantastic addition to our team. His track record of success inside a massive global professional services org - where you have to make a business case for every investment, and respond quickly when new client deals are won - will be well leveraged by our clients. He's a smart, generous, high-expectations sourcing and recruitment leader who just gets it. We are thrilled to welcome Matt to the team.”

Matt began his professional life as a classically trained singer, actor and teacher, a background which has proven surprisingly valuable in the business arena. Leveraging both his performance and business experience, he is in demand as a sourcing and recruiting trainer and has led trainings for teams throughout the US and Europe, as well as India and South Africa. Matt has been a speaker and panelist for the Thought Leadership Institute and SourceCon, has taught members of the International Association for Corporate and Professional Recruitment, and was an Expert Advisor for the Human Capital Institute. Matt holds the Senior Professional in HR certification, graduated cum laude from Southwestern University and earned his Master’s from Texas Tech University.
