Because getting to know people and finding out what they want is the most important part of what we do.

Concero is an IT and industrial/engineering recruitment firm that specializes in bringing together talented technology professionals and the companies that need their skills.

We want to help candidates achieve their dreams by doing the work they love for an employer that values their efforts. Our professional recruiters put an enormous amount of energy into making genuine connections with every candidate, learning about their skills and abilities along with who they are, what they want, and the things they find important.

For our clients, that means we do the heavy lifting. Your dedicated account manager will send you a small number of carefully handpicked candidates that have the technical and personal skills to make an outstanding contribution.

We have two divisions, Concero Technology Group and Concero Industrial Group, with dedicated client relationships executives and recruiters who understand the nuances of what each position requires. This creates efficiencies for our clients and means we can better match our consultants. We believe focus yields results.

Concero offers contract, contract-to-hire and direct-hire placement services to organizations looking for professionals — from entry level to the c-suite and from the shop floor to the top floor — throughout the greater St. Louis region.

“We work with mid and large-size companies operating in insurance, manufacturing, technology and other fields. It is our expertise, business acumen and our network that allows us to serve and succeed”
Patrick Ruzicka

Chief Operating Officer

It’s “mission critical” for our recruiters to get to know our candidates, so we’ve turned networking into an art. Here’s the Concero story…


Company owners (from left) Jay Murchison, Ben Kandlbinder, and Patrick Ruzicka started Concero in 2012 to use their connections and tenacity to help people find career fulfillment and to ensure clients are matched with handpicked professionals.

Concero’s leadership team has more than 50 years of experience in technical and IT recruitment. Together they bring a wealth of business acumen and people smarts to everything they touch.


Most of the time titles don’t matter, right? But not at Concero. As client relationship executives, we are responsible for exactly that — building and maintaining productive relationships with our clients. We want to be considered part of your team. We want you to be able to depend on us, knowing that we’ll do whatever we can to make your life easier and your business better.

LinkedIn message, text, phone, email… these are all ways that we connect with our candidates. But our favorite way to get to know you is to actually meet you. During our conversations, we’ll ask what’s important to you. If you’ve ever felt frustrated and wished you had some help to figure out your priorities, then let us know. We’ll go to bat for you!

Maddie and Kayla… yep, we’re the ones who take care of the details and sweat the small stuff. We make sure the office is running smoothly and that our consultants get their payroll, among a few other things! We’ll be here happily working in the background so you know everything is getting done, efficiently and effectively. If you need anything at any time, just give us a call! 

Concero is an active member of the community and contributes time and resources to a wide number of charitable and professional organizations.

These include:

In addition, we are proud of our amazing team members for the contributions they make in their own time to a wide variety of organizations and charities.
