Mike Whillock is a Partner and Co-Founder of Refine Search. He has over 20 years of recruiting and search experience, both in-house and as an external consultant. Over time, Mike realized that the external recruiters he was working with weren’t true partners who cared about the company’s goals. Refine Search was born to place client needs at the forefront.
Before Refine Search, Mike thrived in oil and gas, creating hands-on recruiting strategies for SM Energy, a Denver-based exploration and production company. Prior to SM, Mike served as the Vice President and Managing Search Consultant for a national HR-focused search firm and also led recruitment for Coors Brewing Company, Hitachi Consulting, and Accenture.
On every search, Mike strives to understand an organization’s needs so he can find candidates who go beyond the job requirements and align with the culture. Delivering the professionals who drive client companies forward keeps him energized.
In his downtime, you can find Mike mountain biking, skiing, and spending time with his daughters, Kate and Greer.
