I've been in the search and recruitment business for 30 years, having joined Adams Consulting Group with the merger of my own firm, Hinckley Associates, into Adams. I founded Hinckley Associates in 1994 after entering the search arena as Director of the Banking and Finance Group at The Fisher Organization. Prior to entering the recruitment community, I held senior management positions with Manufacturers Hanover Trust and Fidelity Union Bancorporation. At Adams, I provide recruitment services for a wide variety of financial organizations ranging from local and regional banks and credit unions to the top financial institutions, domestic and global, recruiting middle to senior professionals in all areas and disciplines. Additionally, I service non-financial companies with their needs, especially marketing, administration, finance and human resources.
I'm a graduate of Rutgers University, with a major in accounting and minors in finance and economics, and graduate work in marketing at Fairleigh Dickinson University. I'm active in professional and civic organizations and have served in government offices, both elected and appointed.
Like all of us at Adams, I'm committed to provide the highest level of professionalism, integrity to all with whom we work.
Why I love recruiting...
Of course, this is a good way to earn a living! But equally, I love the satisfaction to know, that I've really helped to make a difference and add value and growth in the lives of candidates and clients. It's a wonder feeling to you that you've made both sides happy. I even enjoy the process - even when it's exceptionally challenging!
When I'm not working, I love to...
I enjoy being of service in the community - helping to make lives better. I enjoy music - classical, popular and from everywhere; like to travel, learn languages and cultures. Most of all - just the time and joy spent with my wonderful family.
Best experience I have ever had with a recruiter. You simply cannot replicate his depth of knowledge both of industry and more importantly, people. Combined with a work ethic that is second to none, Jim stands head and shoulders above the churn ‘em and burn ‘em crowd of recruiters.
Jim has a thorough knowledge of the job market and is excellent in matching the candidate with a position that would be mutually beneficial, both in terms of the technical requirement and the work environment. He is a good listener and will not recommend an individual or company that would not work out over the long term. Jim is a professional in every regard.
I have worked with Jim over a period of about five years for consideration of several positions. Jim is utmost professional and knowledgeable about the financial service industry and I would highly recommend him for anyone seeking a position.
Jim is outstanding! I've worked with him when I was recruiting talent for open positions and now I am working with him as a candidate. He is absolutely one of the very best recruiters that I have worked with throughout my career.
