||Area of Expertise:
I joined Executive Resources in June
of 1993. My sole focus is the Information Technology
sector in the Des Moines metro area, as well as the
surrounding communities. Iíve worked an I.T. niche since
December 1994. My prior experience includes working for a
large software development company as well as a hardware
reseller. Itís been 20 years and I LOVE what I do.... on
MOST days! I know our market like the
back of my hand! I have a sincere passion and true
understanding of the impact on all the parties who are
involved when it comes to hiring someone or making a
career change. I feel that Iíve made a difference in a
handful of peopleís lives. The rest think I suck, but
thatís just part of the gig. The other part of my work
that drives me day after day would be all the great people
Iíve met and the laughs that I have on a daily basis.
In regard to a career high for me, Iíd have to say
being accepted as a member into the Pinnacle Society would
be the ultimate (www.pinnaclesociety.org).
I have always attended outside training to continue to
hone my skills, but meeting this great group of generous
people has really affected how I do my job.
If you do decide to work with me as a
client I will be straight forward and do my best never to
waste your time! If I donít think I can
fill your opportunity, Iíll let you know.
If I work with you as
a candidate please know that I pride myself on being fair
and after making hundreds of offers, I'm skilled at
getting the questions answered that you may not even think
about during the process of considering a job change!
I believe in treating people how I
like to be treated.
