Executive Senior Partner

For Claire Sendejas, transparency and knowledge are everything when it comes to recruiting. By truly listening to the needs of both parties, she is able to develop strong partnerships with her clients and candidates that yield successful, strategic placements.

With a love for the hunt of finding the best talent in Houston, Claire joined Lucas Group, a Korn Ferry company in 2016 in the IT practice group. She thrives on finding her clients top-tier candidates for contract opportunities, contract-to-hire onboarding and permanent placements. Claire’s genuine interest in technology ensures she stays abreast of the most current trends in the industry and allows her to connect the dots to determine exactly what a client is looking for. Diligent and a team player, Claire strives to find the ideal match for both candidates and clients, ensuring everyone is receiving what they need throughout the process.

Claire began her recruiting career in 2014 with a small IT recruiting company where she quickly became the go-to “technical” recruiter for her clients as well as assisted her colleagues in navigating a complex industry. While there, she placed leading IT talent in a wide range of positions and was highly successful in matching individuals to great opportunities. Claire’s IT recruiting experience spans a broad range of needs including management, software engineers and web developers, network and security engineers, system administrators and everything in between.

With a Master of Education from Antioch New England Graduate School and a B.A. in Literature from the University of Houston, Claire began her career as a teacher with a strong focus on alternative education and the creative arts. She taught elementary school and helped develop one of the only “Waldorf” schools in the Houston area, recruiting families and teachers as well as creating the curriculum. Soon after having her own children she realized she needed more adult interaction and quickly found a true passion in recruiting. She spends her free time with her husband, a software developer, and their two children.
