My career in recruiting/talent began in the year 2000 when I joined a then-little-known recruiting startup – Jobing.com – as their 2nd inside sales person. Over a 10-year career there, I helped to grow the company from near-zero to nearly $70 Million per year in revenue, launched markets, managed large and geographically dispersed teams, developed processes, and drove results. Ultimately, I grew to the VP level, owning responsibility for all recurring revenue and driving our retention and growth efforts. More importantly, though, is I discovered my passion for talent – finding, nurturing, and growing it – and its impact on corporate performance – as well as growing a business. Bottom line: human capital – PEOPLE – is the #1 resource of any company and should be prioritized at all times, in all decision making processes.
Since then, I’ve had similar success at other organizations – from adding 50%+ in sales to a startup in 1 quarter to several years working at CEB working with enterprise-level clients to design and implement psychometric programs. The common thread in all of this is talent – locating, evaluating, and enabling the talents of people who make great companies great.
Prior to all of this, I served 6 years in the U.S. Navy where I met Rick Gonzales. When TruPath was looking to expand and grow, he reached out to me to discuss my interest in joining and helping to grow something special here. It was a natural fit and I jumped at the opportunity!
While I have lived all over the U.S., Arizona is my home. I have a wonderful wife – Katie – of over 10 years and we have 4 children. And 3 cats. And 2 guinea pigs. And a tortoise.
“Trust is the foundation of all relationships and forms the basis for all interactions. As such, Trust is something I hold dear, nurture, and guard closely when it’s given to me.“
“It is our responsibility to advocate on behalf of our client, marrying trust and integrity to ensure we are always acting with our clients’ best interests as the focal point of every interaction and recommendation.“
“Community Partnership is such an integral part of TruPath’s DNA! We support our community by giving back and exhibiting “conscious capitalism.” Whether it’s volunteering at the local food bank to help feed those in need, or supporting our local employment-related charities to help people get back to work, I get a tremendous feeling of pride in our team for these efforts. It shows just how committed we are to being good corporate citizens and doing good where we’re able!”
“Organizations are only as good as their people and their people only get better through continually working to learn, expose themselves to new ideas and methods. By improving the individual, we improve the team. And by improving our team, we improve the results for our clients, candidates, and ourselves.“
