When choosing our company name back in 1990, we were a little naïve as to the significance of the word “Network”. We did not have online job boards, social media or even internet as we know it today!

Our Network was built by making and returning phone calls, relationship building, and developing a reputation of honesty, integrity and flexibility. It is with this expansive network of leading industry professionals that we are able to quickly identify top performers who can make a difference in your organization!

Although technology and methods of communication have greatly improved since then, we are still in the “people” business. We put the needs of our clients and candidates first and understand that getting hired can be a life changing experience. We pride ourselves in offering a uniquely personal approach to the recruitment and hiring process.

Retail, CPG, and Service businesses have evolved. Our clients are focused on hiring the BEST candidates skilled in analyzing, creating, executing, and solving business issues to drive omnichannel experiences. They are seeking strong candidates in front-line management & sales, ecommerce, marketing, logistics, omni-channel strategy, analytics, CRM, and more. In short, they need leaders and support staff to create better experiences for their customers at all touch points.
