The Founders

Meet Laci...



Co-Founder & Managing Partner

Laci tripped into recruiting after studying marketing in college and couldn't imagine spending her time doing anything else. What has made Laci successful is that she can't help but take a sincerely relational and consultative approach to everything that she does, work included. Laci is often the face of Buckingham Search and her deeprooted relationships open doors for our candidates. The teams that Laci supports become family, and she knows them very closely. 

When she pries herself away from work, Laci can be found spending time at comedy clubs, rock climbing, traveling the globe, or spending time with friends and family including our Chief Barking Officer. 

Personal Motto: "What better time than now?" 

Meet Adam...



Co-Founder & Partner

Adam dove headfirst into the recruiting world after graduating from Indiana University in 2010. He leverages his degrees in Marketing and Psychology to dig into what makes candidates and clients tick to find the best fit possible for each. He also has an uncanny ability to recall details about each and every person that he’s ever worked with.

Outside of the office, you can find Adam staying active playing sand volleyball in the summer, flag football in the fall, snowboarding in the winter and rock climbing in the spring.

​Personal Motto: "Why pick and choose?"

Accounting & Finance Team

Meet Dakota...



Assistant Vice President, Search

After dreams of becoming a police officer were thwarted for being colorblind, Dakota decided to put his investigative skills toward solving hard-to-fill job requisitions by finding and placing the right candidate for the role. He commutes daily to Chicago from his home state of Indiana. 

While he’s a team player in the office, Dakota is big on individual sports including wakeboarding, snowboarding and rock climbing. 


Personal Motto: “Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.”


Meet Felicia...



Senior Search Consultant 

Felicia earned her BS in Psychology and Marketing from Olivet Nazarene University. She takes pride in her ability to apply those skills to find candidates whose motivations and cultural expectations match even the most specific roles her clients are looking to fill.

As the daughter of two small business owners, Felicia is a champion of “shop local.” She enjoys cooking, touring breweries, playing with dogs (who doesn’t?) and curling up with a good book.

Personal Motto: “Work smarter so you can play harder.”


Meet Tyler...



Search Consultant 

A native of Indiana, Tyler has a Midwest charm and a knack for making genuine connections with individuals. He’s confident that he can figure out Hoosier ideal candidate from the pool of prospective hopefuls. Prior to Buckingham, Tyler worked in transportation sales where he got real comfortable talking on the phone. He earned his BA in Business Administration and Marketing from Northern Illinois University. 


Tyler has played baseball recreationally for as long as he can remember and is a self-proclaimed world’s biggest Cubs fan (Go, Cubs!). In addition to baseball, Tyler is passionate about breast cancer awareness. He and his family participate in an annual walk to raise money and awareness for the cause.  

Personal Motto: “If you believe, you can achieve.”


Sales & HR Team

Meet Shannon...



Director of HR Partnerships

Shannon began her career in recruiting after moving to the “big city” from rural Kentucky. Soon after, she found her niche sourcing and placing top-talent in HR, Sales and Marketing roles. Before joining the Buckingham team, she worked for a recruiting start-up where she consistently placed record numbers of candidates year-over-year. Shannon earned her BA in Communications from Miami of Ohio.  

Shannon is a firm believer in equality for all, and a big supporter of Best Buddies. Shannon enjoys trying new sports (archery, anyone?), hanging upside down in her aerial trapeze class, and traveling the world.  

Personal Motto: “The world is too big to stay in one place & life is too short to do just one thing”


Meet Kim...



Associate Search Consultant

Kim began her recruiting career right out of college working with a focus on the medical industry. Kim has a passion for making genuine, honest connections with her clients and candidates and maintaining clear lines of communication with everyone. Kim earned her BS in Kinesiology from MSU.

When Kim isn’t using her voice to connect clients with candidates, she’s using it to sing along with her favorite artists at music festivals. She also enjoys filling her weekends with friends or finding the best deals on whatever she’s looking to buy.

Personal Motto: “When you're stuck, don't give up—try something new”

Meet Finnley...



Chief Barketing Officer

Originally from a farm in rural Illinois, Finn knew he wouldn’t and couldn’t follow in the footsteps of his father to become a simple roofer. The pull of big city life was too strong and so at the age of four months, he made the move to Chicago. Finn prides himself on his ability to sniff out any snack lurking in his co-worker's belongings, and also being a constant reason to make others smile. He earned his degree in Barcheaology and graduated top of his class at Call Of The Wild School For Dogs.  

Outside the office, Finn is a master snuggler and (dog)foodie. When he isn't busy negotiating high-level deals between his stuffed lamb toy and multiple squeaky balls, he can be found keeping his cool on top of the A/C vent.     

Personal Motto: “Catch Frisbee's, AND Feelings.”

  Buckingham Search is a full-service recruitment agency dedicated to connecting the top accounting, audit, tax, HR, & sales  talent with companies that know the value of a high-impact hire.  We are proud to be WBENC, WOSB & MBE Certified!
