who is eli danielJust Who is Eli Daniel anyway?

Well, I’m so glad you asked!

As one of our long-time friends and vendors 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 after much prayer and discussion with family and friends. In November of that year, I chose to step out in FAITH and begin the entrepreneurial journey, leaving behind a stable career with a good company.

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 management position with a national staffing firm.

And so the journey started!

Choosing our company name was a critical decision early in that journey. I wanted the name to stand for something of depth and meaning each time it was spoken. As we brainstormed and prayed and brainstormed some more…

The name – Eli Daniel – was ultimately chosen because of its deep meaning and the declaration that God is the inspiration, foundation and guide for our business.

Fueled by this underlying tenet, the Eli Daniel Group has stood strong over the years. 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 feel blessed that this goal has been validated through the many cherished testimonies we’ve received.

The future is bright as we expand and play a vital role in the future of the Dallas/Fort Worth employment climate.

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

To your success and on behalf of the Eli Daniel Team,


Chris Lawson, Owner, Eli Daniel Group

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