Meet Our Ceramics and Advanced and  Materials Consultant


For over 20 years I have assisted companies and candidates to find their long-term match. I work with a wide variety of hydraulic companies: hydraulic component manufacturers and distributors of fluid power from the small local distributor to large regional firms. I have long-term relationships with the Fortune 1000 corporations and those looking to become a Fortune 500.

To make the hiring process enjoyable for both the client and myself. To deliver candidates who can make a very positive impact on my client by filling their needs and solving their problems. In doing so, develop a client network that will think of me as their preferred recruiter of choice through their greatly appreciated repeat business. Additionally, it is my continuing personal goal to gain as much industry product knowledge as I can to find candidates who otherwise would be inaccessible.
