who is eli danielJust Who is Eli Daniel anyway?

Well, I’m so glad you asked!

As one of our long-time friends and suppliers put it, “I thought Eli Daniel was your owner’s name. I figured he was probably down in the Caribbean somewhere taking it easy while all of you back at the office labored for his prosperity.”

We all got a good laugh out of that because… fortunately, that’s not the case.

The vision behind the Eli Daniel Group began to unfold rapidly in 2007.  I called a long-term friend, previous co-worker and very smart businessman, Len Friedrichs, and asked him to come along beside us to play a key role. Fortunately, he agreed and left behind his successful leadership position with a national staffing firm.

And so the journey started!

Choosing our company name was a critical decision early in that journey.

 – Eli Daniel –  was ultimately chosen because of the definition behind each name and to recoginize that God is the inspiration and foundation of our business.

Fueled by this underlying tenet, the Eli Daniel Group has stood strong over the years.  Starting a company a year before the “Great Recession” has tested our grit, made us stronger and set in concrete a foundation for the long haul. Our vision continues to unfold to this day with a burning desire to stand out from the crowd – to be different – to be memorable – to MAKE a difference.

Our company culture, high-quality service and sense of urgency has defined and translated into loyal partners along the way.

Our sincere goal is to make a positive impact with our candidates, for our clients and in our community. We are thankful that this goal has been validated through the many valued testimonies we’ve received over the years.

Thanks for taking time to read about our company. We look forward to meeting you!


Chris Lawson, Owner, Eli Daniel Group

And P.S.: If you’re ever down in the Caribbean…tell Eli Daniel hello for us! :)
