About Us

Top Talent Professionals was formed by Laurie Braddy and Deborah Zoerkler. With over 20 years of combined experience in the staffing industry, the founders desired to create a recruiting firm that is truly different. Our vision was and still is to build partnerships through compatible placements and treat our employees, employers and candidates with the upmost respect. Top Talent Professionals takes a more consultative/relationship building approach as opposed to the typical “make the sale and move on” approach practiced by most recruiting firms.

What does it mean to be a Top Talent Professional? It’s being aware of today’s ever-changing, ever-adapting business world. We are more than a placement firm looking to bridge the gaps between businesses and prospects with unique solutions. We are people with a genuine interest in all of the connections we make. Top Talent Professionals is a commitment to creating and building partnerships for mutual growth, success, and capitalizing on the next big opportunity.


We are a professional placement firm with a genuine interest in our employees, our clients, our candidates, and all the connections that we make.
