The majority of his business comes from referrals, which is a testimonial not only to Brian’s personal attributes, but also to the extensive knowledge and insights he brings to his client and candidate relationships.
In a singular recognition of Brian’s professional abilities, he was recently the recipient of the US Government’s Small Business Person of the Year Award for the New York District. This is the first time the award has been presented to a business services provider, rather than to the vendor of a product. This recognition is illustrative of Brian’s professional philosophy, in creating lasting and supportive partnerships with Drum’s clients, rather than the vendor-buyer relationship that is typical of search firms. Brian forges relationships of mutual trust, respect, and confidentiality with each of the clients and candidates his company works with.
Brian Drum has been featured on various television news programs including NBC Nightly News, CNN’s “In the Money”, MSNBC’s “Your Business”, NY1’s “Money Matters” and “Bloomberg Small Business” with Lane Bajardi. Brian is also a trusted news source for the Associated Press, Newsday, WashingtonPost.com, Monster.com, USBanker, Entrepreneur.com, Computer World.com, PPB Magazine, Business Week, eFinancial Careers, The Ragan Report, Fitness Business Pro, Long Island Business News, NY Sun, and Crain’s NY Business. In addition, Brian has offered career advice to ex-members of the military looking to get into the workforce on Military.com.
