Dave Ramsey’s The Lampo Group, Brentwood, TN
The Vanderbloemen Search Group has been retained by Dave Ramsey's The Lampo Group to conduct the search for the Youth Personality. We conducted their search for Christian Voice to the Church last year, and are honored to partner with them again in their search for a Youth Personality.
After losing everything, Dave Ramsey and his wife, Sharon, went on a quest to find out how money really works. They wanted to know how they could gain control of it and how they could have confidence in handling it. He came to realize that his money problems, worries, and shortages largely began and ended with the person in the mirror. He went back to his first love, real estate, to eat and to get out of debt. Along the way, he began another path – the path of helping others, literally millions of others, take the same quest to the mirror.
Dave Ramsey formed The Lampo Group in 1992 to counsel people hurting from the results of financial stress. He’s paid the "stupid tax" (mistakes with dollar signs on the end), and his hope is that others won’t have to make the same mistakes he did. He wrote the book, Financial Peace, based on all that he and Sharon learned and began selling it out of his car. With the help of a friend, he started a local radio call-in show called The Money Game, now nationally syndicated as The Dave Ramsey Show.
The Lampo Group company history is full of landmarks leading up to the release of their third best-selling book in 2003 - The Total Money Makeover - and they're not slowing down. The Lampo Group now has more than 400 team members and a variety of products and services to help people reach their financial goals. They have five best-selling books, including the 2014 #1 New York Times Best Seller Smart Money Smart Kids. Many companies define success based on the dollars coming in, but at The Lampo Group, they define their success by the number of lives changed: listeners getting out of debt, readers taking their first baby step and saving $1,000, and Financial Peace University graduates investing for their future.
The Lampo Group is beginning work on a 15-year transition plan to keep this message alive for years to come. Several key team members have already been added to reach strategic markets and bring stability to the future of the organization. The Youth Personality will assist in completing the long-term scalability and succession of the Lampo Group’s vital mission.
The Lampo Group is searching for a person who believes whole-heartedly in The Lampo Group’s message of financial freedom through debt-free living and who is passionately committed to carrying this message to students in both the secular and faith-based markets. The Youth Personality will have a sense of a lifetime calling to students. They will possess a passion for and a commitment to spreading ideas that bring hope, instruction, and behavior change to elementary, middle, and high school students.
The effective Youth Personality will be an effective communicator who will build a multi-platform national brand as the face of The Lampo Group’s vision and message of finances, leadership, relationships, and other pertinenent issues specifically facing students today. Their primary role will be building a platform that students trust and seek for instruction. This will include being comfortable writing and communicating via multi-platforms which may include live speaking engagements, books, blogs, videos, radio, and podcasts. This person can expect to teach often in a variety of settings, sizes, and locations. The successful candidate should be available and prepared for frequent evening and weekend engagements.
The Youth Personality will already be established as a thought-leader with credentialed expertise in the student and youth market with room to grow as a personality and brand. The successful candidate should have significant experience leading, teaching, and mentoring both students and parents. They will likely have served in ministry leadership to youth and students with a heavy teaching responsibility and a proven track record of integrity within their personal life and finances. In addition, the Youth Personality and their family should be completely on board with the mission of the organization and have a demonstrated application of the The Lampo Group financial and leadership message.
