Colby Wegman used to be a law recruiter and is now a manager at Wegman Partners, a legal recruiting firm. His firm places attorneys throughout the U.S. and Canada. They also have offices located in Dallas, Houston, Austin, Atlanta, and Phoenix. The company has tripled in size in the last six months and Colby is looking to expand with new offices in Washington D.C., New York, and the Bay area. His company is currently ranked 46 in LawCrossing’s 2013 Most Influential Legal Recruiter’s List. He was born and raised in Big Spring, Texas, which is a small oil town, approximately 300 miles west of Dallas.
The former recruiter attended Texas Tech and credits the school for developing his social skills. He also acknowledged that Texas Tech gave him the opportunity to run his first business, which was the biggest pool cleaning company in West Texas. Colby started managing the company when he was a sophomore and continued doing so all the way through college. He stated the business gave him the “entrepreneurial bug.”
The Texan said he enjoys eating steak and potatoes. When he isn't working, he likes to play tennis and is an avid skier. The businessman is “within a drive to the mountains” and flies to Colorado so he can hit the slopes.
Colby is married and has two boys, a three-year-old and a six-month-old. He enjoys watching his three-year-old play soccer. When he has enough time in the day, the Texas Tech alumni reads business biographies. His favorite biography is called Snowball, which is about Warren Buffet and his business life.
