Jordan Rayboy

Jordan Rayboy believes life if short, so play hard! He began recruiting in 2000 after his sophomore year of college. Six years later, he struck out on his own, forming Rayboy Insider Search. Being an impatient type-A recruiter, Jordan long ago abandoned the deferred life plan (slave, save, retire). By building an effective virtual team & leveraging technology, Jordan has run his search firm since 2006 while traveling in a tour-bus RV with his wife Jeska. They’ve raised three dogs along the way, which prepared them (kinda) for traveling with their two young children – Ryder and Hunter. They’ve covered the majority of the US and Canada during their adventure while living their dream every day (as long as the RV works).

He joined the Pinnacle Society in 2009, and has served on their Board of Directors and as Member Education Chair. Through Jordan’s numerous presentations at NAPS conferences, state associations, and training videos on Next Level Exchange, he has inspired countless recruiters to raise their game and make their dreams a reality as well.
