We learned this week that Buffalo Director SHAWN M. FRIER has been named RECRUITER OF THE YEAR for 2012/2013 by the Career Resource Center at the University at Buffalo.

This award honors an individual who has demonstrated outstanding commitment to promoting a strong recruiting partnership with the School of Management.

Not everyone is aware of what is involved to receive tremendous recognition like this.  In our constant quest to find the best and brightest talent for Freed Maxick, we participate in technicals to accounting students and clubs, on-campus interviews for entry-level staff and interns, mock interviews including resume reviews for underclassmen, group projects, presentations, recruiter roundtables, etc., the majority of which require time commitments outside the normal work day.

Shawn is happy to share this award with the Firm’s Recruiting Team, all those who assist with on-campus events and the nearly 50 UB graduates we have across the Firm.

On behalf of the Directors, congratulations Shawn and thank you for your tireless efforts in growing the Firm!
