Jan Plessner, Recruiter

What Jan’s Clients Say:

“Although there are an endless number of search firms to select from, Jan is one of the few who understands our business and goes the extra mile to fulfill our needs. In short, Jan serves as a business partner rather than a salesman.”  - Tom B.

“I've worked with Jan to recruit and hire 3 young talented individuals for our trade and consumer show business. She helped me find the right people to fill a sales role, a digital marketing role, and a PR role. I would highly recommend working with Jan if you want someone who will work hard to identify the best candidates for your business.” – Tracy H.

“Jan has a great attitude, passion and work ethic that makes her easy to be with and to work with. Jan is passionate about her work, about the powersports industry and about mentoring others. Her enthusiasm is a joy to see and an inspiration to all.” – Cam A.

“Jan has the whole package: intelligence and wit, endless enthusiasm, great communication skills, faultless work ethic. She will be an asset to any organization.” – Tony M.

What Jan’s Candidates Say:

“Not only did she help me land an incredible position with a great company, she was quick to reply to my needs, helped me negotiate my benefits package, and provided great insight to the position at hand before submitting my name into the hat.” – M.J.B.

“Jan has been a great communicator and was very enthusiastic throughout the entire job application process. Not only was she available to support my questions and needs, but she also encouraged me and her expertise was shown through her guidance.” – Garrett C.

“I can't thank Jan enough for reaching out and placing me in my new job. She was pleasant, helpful and followed up with me every step of the process. She was able to say the things that my resume couldn't. Thanks to Jan I don't mind getting up in the morning and going to work. I am living an exponentially happier life and I couldn't have done it without her.” – Heather J.

“Jan is more than a recruiter, she is a dedicated professional that is ready to go above and beyond to find the perfect match for both her client and the candidate and to do so as a colleague and someone that cares. Jan is truly one of a kind and I would never hesitate to trust her with placing me personally or helping me find any level of employee for my organization.” – Ethan G.

“Jan is awesome. By recognizing my work in the auto and motorcycle industry and connecting me with ICON Aircraft, she orchestrated a consulting relationship that has been going strong for nearly two years. Thank you, Jan.” – Basem W.

“Jan was a pleasure to work with. She saw my resume on MIJ and contacted me about a possible job with a European OE. She set-up an interview for the following week and I was offered the job the next day. Jan helped me further my career in the motorcycle industry. As a result, I helped the top European OE grow their sales and dealer network.” - Laura P.

Founder and Managing Director Jan Plessner has been recruiting in the powersports industry since 2012.

Prior to her past role with Lonski and Associates Recruiting, Jan enjoyed an extended tenure with Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A., which included eight years as the Public Relations Manager (2003 to 2012).
“I had a great 23-year run at Kawasaki, but I really love recruiting. Nothing feels better than transforming careers by placing individuals in wonderful opportunities. I’ve also fine-tuned a process to career coach those who desire to make a move, but are overwhelmed by today's often daunting high-tech world."

“For me, it was a natural progression to break out of powersports and join the SearchPath recruiting firm network. The SearchPath family eats, sleeps and dreams about best practices and recruiting. We will be able to diversify our client roster, while offering an expanded list of staffing solutions for our clients and career coaching resources for our candidates.” 

​Jan holds an degree in Communications/Public Relations from California State University, Fullerton as well as a certificate in Leadership from Chapman University.
