I graduated from Indiana University Bloomington with Accounting and Finance Degrees.
Started my career with Johnson & Johnson where I completed the Finance Leadership Development Program and then stayed for another year after.
That 3 year stretch included:
- DePuy in Warsaw, Indiana (Cost Accounting)
- Global JNJ HQ in New Brunswick, NJ (Finance Systems)
- Vistakon in Jacksonville, FL (Marketing Finance)
- Back to Warsaw, IN (Cost Accounting)
I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity right out of college. Very fortunate and grateful.
In many ways, I was out of my league!
But something was missing. It just wasn’t doing it for me.
In 2005 I stumbled into recruiting and spent over 3 years with Robert Half in Indianapolis.
In 2008 I met Brian McCall and became his first hire at Platinum Recruiting Group. Hard to believe that was over 13 years ago.
It started with the two of us sharing an office, making hundreds of calls but trying to alternate so we could hear, scratching and clawing to get the firm going.
We’re now up to 18 employees and growing: Meet The Team.
Helluva ride so far!
Getting downsized from Robert Half is probably the best thing that ever happened. Maybe that’s a future blog post.
Before all that?
I’m originally from Tennessee.
Grew up in Madison, IN.
My beautiful wife Karen is from Fort Wayne, IN. She’s a Butler grad and has a great career at Roche.
We have two awesome, crazy boys: Jack (10 years old) and Reed (8 years old).
Thanks for stopping by!
