At Alton Morgan, we know how to position your company and opportunity to gain interest from talented individuals who currently aren’t looking. We take the time to thoroughly understand the opportunities in your organization, and using this knowledge, develop a plan to seek out candidates who drive value, growth and innovation.

When you hire us to perform a search, we will be sourcing, qualifying and talking with select individuals about your employment opportunity. As you are tending to your business, we will be surveying wine industry professionals not necessarily looking on the open job market or responding to employment ads and electronic recruitment messages. This means going the extra mile and making those confidential calls at night and over the weekends to help you fill your positions with “A” plus players. We do what needs to be done to keep the process moving forward with the goal of completing each search assignment as quickly as possible.

More than 20 years, and counting

Our managing director, Alan Brooks, has more than 20 years of experience in search and recruitment. He has led the search and recruitment process for some of the most successful companies in the United States. Alan personally leads every aspect of each search assignment, assuring every client benefits from his industry and search expertise. Alan’s effectiveness often extends far beyond the traditional boundaries of what most recruiters are capable of accomplishing – so much so that clients call his services “thorough, concise and innovative.”

Alan grew up surrounded by the wine growing industry. His family was among the early California grape growers back in the 1920’s. They started off growing table grapes, grapes for making raisins and ultimately converted to producing grapes for the wine industry. Alan was taught, at an early age, the family tradition of wine growing working alongside his father. He was involved with nearly every aspect of running the vineyards right down to harvesting the fruit and delivering it to the winery. In addition to his own commercial grape growing experience, Alan also has close family members who currently own and manage hundreds of acres of vineyard land.

If you’re looking for a good wine industry recruiter, you have come to the right place. Alan combines his early winegrowing experience, his extraordinary recruiting skills and deep relationships with leading wine industry professionals to deliver a superior recruiting experience to his client. Whether you need a president, general manager or VP of Sales to a highly skilled employee for an individual contributor role, Alan is the wine recruiter to call. He personally leads every aspect of each search assignment, assuring every client benefits from his search expertise.
