BACKGROUND

I grew up in a small town of approximately 2,000 and was the youngest of 4 children (1 girl, 3 boys). My father started a retail furniture business without any formal education whatsoever and built a successful business with the help of my mother, 2 brothers, and me. My parents impacted me the most by instilling work ethic/values and my high school football coach helped motivate me to compete at a high level and we remain friends to this day. Regarding food: with retail hours and the store open 6 days a week my mother wasn’t a gourmet cook but we never were hungry!

CAREER HISTORY

I have a Bachelors degree in Business Administration. I started working at Monsanto Research Corporation in production engineering as a technician and supervisor for 5 years. I spoke to a family member one day who was placed by a “headhunter” and he said I should talk to him. It was a great recommendation and 30 years later, I’m still in the business. I started off in a franchise business in Indiana and joined AIM Executive in 1992 and helped build and lead the Dayton office with 18 recruiters. I eventually moved into the retained search practice, Stratford Group, and learned to really sell at a high level during this time and position recruiting as a value-added service. I co-founded a successful search firm after leaving Stratford and expanded service offerings to include staffing and RPO project recruiting. I joined one of my clients as a Director of Talent Acquisition and Staffing within a $6B manufacturing organization and learned the dynamics of building a staffing team within a large corporate environment. I moved back into the professional recruiting business in 2011 and joined endevis in 2015.

NICHE/SUCCESS STORIES

I started off working in the Automotive industry, specifically Quality Professionals, and gravitated towards engineering/manufacturing. My best success story occurred with a global retail optical company, Luxottica. We were one of 3 firms chosen to help hire over 500 employees. I lead a small group of 3 people who worked on-site at their North American Headquarters in Mason, OH. The project was extended due to our performance and we filled over 250 positions and generated $1.2M in revenue over 16 months.

ENDEVIS

I like the entrepreneurial spirit and environment and the fact that the owners invest back in the business – that gives its employees the opportunities to be successful!

OUTSIDE OF WORK

I like traveling with my wife and being a grandparent to Knox! I love golf (even though I’m a high handicap!)and being with family and friends. We have traveled to Europe extensively and look forward to returning in the near future.

FAVORITES

Due to the pandemic, I have watched more streaming services Netflix/Hulu/Amazon than I care to admit! Regarding quotes, my favorite is “I’m just as disappointed in my behavior as you are.” (Greg Dunn)
