Tom Jackson is Rauenhorst Recruiting Company's Account Manager of Utilities. Leveraging his lengthy tenure as a director of a national association of over 450 energy companies, he brings his business acumen and extensive rolodex to aid in filling positions for energy delivery firms, large and small.

"My greatest joy has been understanding people and helping them accomplish things that they want; what drives them best to excel. This has helped me discover the key talents that separate great performers from good. It also provides me an ability to understand company culture and connect candidate and company for maximum benefit to all." - Thomas Jackson

While at his former association, Tom was instrumental at adding almost 400 new companies to the century-old association, building relationships with executives at all levels. Member firms distribute natural gas and electricity to communities across the US. Prior to this, Tom served as a manufacturers' rep and senior merchant in consumer electronics, consistently focusing on sales messaging, customer relationships and marketing. His 30 year career path allowed him to experience first-hand corporate politics and the nuances of successfully building and navigating corporate relationships.

At Rauenhorst, Tom focuses on fitting the right candidates for upper- and mid-level management transition for these same electric and natural gas companies. He supports placement into co-ops, municipal and investor-owned utilities, as well as construction contractors, another area of RRC specialty.

Tom attended the University of Minnesota and continues to donate time as a mentor to collegiate students at the UMN and on a national basis. He has served on numerous non-profit and not-for-profit boards, similarly aiding them in staff and volunteer transition, with fiduciary and governance responsibility.



  • “Rauenhorst went above and beyond our expectations.”

    Tonka Water of Minneapolis has been a client of Rauenhorst Recruiting Company over the last 15 years for very good reasons. Rauenhorst has maintained excellent service through the periods of growth and contraction the building and municipal trades have gone through in the last decade.

    Most recently, we had a need for a very specific and hard to find candidate to fulfill a strategic growth initiative. The individual that Rauenhorst found was one of those rare people who could consultatively build on our outstanding reputation and be instrumental in our growth. Within our qualifications, we required a stellar technical background on top of management, mentoring, teaching, and communication competencies.

    Rauenhorst was able to deliver a candidate with superior qualities meeting all our requirements, including extra competencies which were a bonus for us. Their exhaustive search led to a candidate who fits within our culture and is passionate about our mission and values. Rauenhorst truly went above and beyond our expectations…and that is why we look forward to working with them for our strategic placement needs in the future.
