Gillian Executive Search, Inc, (GES) has long been known for its high quality executive recruiting results and relationships in the real estate development industry. 15+ years we have represented the best REITS, Developers, Architectural and General Contracting firms in the county. GES was forged from a blend of direct knowledge provided by our founder Kipp Gillian and his desire to represent clients and candidates as personably as top sports agents represent their players and teams. This desire has earned Kipp the nickname "the Jerry Maguire of Real Estate". It was only natural that GES would eventually expand its search efforts to include the sporting industry.
We are proud to announce the formation of Gillian Sports Recruiting, servicing the operational needs of professional and collegiate sports organizations nationwide.
To further our endeavors we have tapped Brad Ticehurst as our Director of Sports Recruiting. Brad is deeply rooted in baseball having played outfield for the University of Southern California in the mid-late 90’s. He still holds the record for the most home runs hit in a College World Series and was a member of their 1998 Championship team. Brad was picked in the 10th round of the 99’ draft by the New York Yankees and played for their minor league organization. Since his playing days, Brad has had a long career in both real estate financing and recruiting and has kept a tight network of friend and old teammates throughout the baseball world.
"Brad is a natural, old-school business professional who doesn't just sit behind his desk emailing. He calls you, he meets with you, he shakes your hand and lets you know "we'll take care of you". Confident and trustworthy. He was the exact personality that I could trust to help lead this division of the company." – Kipp Gillian
