Standing Meeting


We recruit for Manufacturing and Supply Chain leadership and professional positions because we have first-hand experience in this area.

Management Recruiters of Auburn-Opelika, LLC was founded in 2004 by David Strickland, a Chemical Engineer with 22 years of experience in the manufacturing sector, including executive roles in manufacturing, sales & marketing, and general management. While independently owned and operated by the founder, our firm is an affiliate of the MRINetwork, the largest recruiting and placement organization in the world, recognized by Forbes magazine as one of the top 10 executive recruiting firms. 

Our philosophy is that organizations who want superior performance require the best human talent available, so we help them assemble teams of achievers who thirst for the opportunity to prove themselves and create value every day.  Our interactions with others, including clients, candidates, and fellow associates, are conducted with the highest levels of integrity and respect.

We serve clients in a variety of industries throughout North America, focusing primarily on those committed to technological advancement and operational excellence.  We place talented professionals for all functional disciplines, including engineering, quality and regulatory affairs, operations, sales and marketing, human resources, accounting, and supply chain management in positions ranging from the individual contributor level to executive management. 

Our recruiters have real life work experience in their field of specialty, so we understand the importance, impact, and cost of every hiring decision.  We thoroughly screen candidates and only recommend the ones that we would consider hiring if we were in our clients’ shoes.  Our job is to make the selection and hiring process simpler, faster, and more cost-effective.

In working with job seekers, our goal is to assist them in finding that "perfect fit" between their skills and experience and the right career opportunities.  All information will be held in the strictest of confidence until the candidate is briefed on a specific opportunity and grants us permission to proceed with our client in seeking an interview.
