Les Schafer

Director, Recruiting & Strategy

At Germer International, Les specializes in placing employees in Pharmaceutical Operation roles.

Les has taken a circuitous path to becoming a Recruiter by way of Georgia Tech, Construction Project Engineer, Golf Pro, Management Consultant and FINALLY landing on Recruiting in 2010.

As a recruiter, he works hard every day in trying to become the best he can at what he does. At the end of the day his focus is on helping people achieve their life goals.

His clients’ and his candidates’ goals are his main priority. One client in particular was looking to grow their presence here in the US and he was asked to fill a key senior level role in their R&D group. Les found the person they were looking for and has since become a valued partner for this client, helping to fill other key positions in their Manufacturing department.

When Les is not busy recruiting you can find him spending quality time with his wife and his two young girls. He is looking forward to taking his daughters out on the links to teach them the game of golf and have fun.

Outside of work and his home life he dreams of one day having either a distinguished amateur golf career, becoming a singer-songwriter or writing a smash screenplay or just doing all of the above.

In April of 2017 Les was finally able to cross off his bucket list “The Masters”. A good friend of his was nice enough to invite him down to Augusta for Saturday and Sunday. He had front row seats on hole 16 and on Sunday was able to see Matt Kuchar’s hole in one and also see the duel between Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose. Les is still on Cloud 9!
