BACKGROUND

I was born and raised in the country: Hinckley, Ohio (“Home of the Buzzards”). I am the youngest of four children; height and the ability to talk to anyone runs in my family. I have been around the executive search business since I was ten years old. My father started a boutique search firm back in 1979 from the den of our house with my mother. My father was the Director of Human Resources at Revco Drug stores back in the mid to late ’70s and left his “cushy” job at the age of 40 with four children to follow his lifelong dream. While at Revco, he was signing off on some significantly-sized checks that they were writing to these search firms out of New York and Chicago to bring talent into Cleveland. My father wanted to be on the receiving end of those checks, and really enjoyed the Recruiting/Talent Management side of HR. Let’s just say his risk at age 40 paid off nicely for him and our entire family. So, if there were a person that I would have to look up to or call my hero, it would be my father, Dale C. Chorba ( Great Father, Leader, and Mentor).
I have a vanity plate that reads, “DNT QUIT”, a motivational poem my father gave me the day I left for college back in August of 1987. He signed it, told me he loved me, and he said, “NEVER FORGET IT”. I have the original framed and hanging in my house to this day. I read it every day, and think of him… then, go out and Seize The Day!!!

CAREER HISTORY

Right out of college, I sold Canon & Sharp copiers in downtown Cleveland very successfully for close to three years. My father never gave any of his children a job after graduating college, we had to “EARN IT” before he let us in the door. I worked for my father and my family’s executive search business for over 20 years before jumping out of the family nest and joining endevis in May of 2017.

I believe in the Four Agreements:
1. Be Impeccable with your word
2. Don’t take anything personally
3. Don’t make assumptions
4. Always do your best

NICHE/SUCCESS STORIES

I specialize in placing Retained & Contingent Mid to C-Suite Accounting, Finance, Tax, and Audit professionals here in the Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Columbus, and Pittsburgh markets.

I enjoy my faith in God, my FAMILY, watching Buckeye Football, shooting sporting clays, golf, going to the gym.

Please read the Don’t Quit poem, it might change your life!!!
