Erica's Why

Executive Partner/Equity Partner
Call or Text: 281.359.2142

“Erica Lockwood is by far the best recruiter that I have ever worked with. It’s very easy to send a large quantity of resumes. It’s much more difficult to send qualified candidates who would fit into an organization. And, that is what Erica does. She takes the time to get to know you, your company and your culture before providing any candidates, saving you time and money. I have worked with several other recruiting firms in the past. Erica Lockwood and her team are truly exceptional compared to any other firm I have worked with.”

I hadn’t heard of Joseph Chris Partners when founder Joe Ramirez found me almost 20 years ago. Living in a small town in Indiana, I had just started recruiting when I got a call from a man who would open the door to an incredible opportunity. I joined the Joseph Chris Partners team in September 2000 and have excelled within the company and the industry where I’ve worked hard to make a name for myself as a leading executive search professional. In my current role as Equity/Executive Partner, I support company initiatives, talent development and play an active role in business development.

I enjoy building and maintaining long-lasting relationships within the residential and commercial construction, real estate and development niches. My areas of focus include C-level, President and senior level management roles within all the key industry skill sets. I have a successful track record of identifying and aligning leaders with both publicly traded and private organizations.

I believe my capacity to identify exceptional talent has contributed to my success, as has my perseverance and ability to understand each individual client’s needs. I have completed some extremely tough searches that I felt like giving up on, but I knew the right person was out there, and I was determined to find that professional! Becoming a true strategic partner with my clients has created countless long-term relationships with companies who utilize my expertise year after year.

When I’m not focused on filling client’s searches, you will most likely find me enjoying spending time with my family at our lake home, kayaking or driving around in my bright yellow Jeep Wrangler.
