From Yankee Stadium to Wrigley Field, We Have You Covered

AC Lion’s 2016 breakthrough into the Midwest digital recruiting scene was a no-brainer. While Silicon Valley and New York remain the powerhouses of tech, Midwestern start-up-heavy cities such as Chicago, Detroit, Denver and Kansas City are looking to recruit top talent for their new teams.


We have both jump-started Midwest-based startups team building and expanded the sales, marketing, ad ops and product management teams for companies expanding to the Midwest. We bring our vast experience in talent acquisition from the east and west coast to the heartlands of the country.
