Chris: I am a proud graduate of the The University of Alabama with a degree in finance. Since that time, I have gained over 15 years of experience working in business services companies TSYS and USIS. Before joining PrideStaff, I served as the president and full P&L leader for the nation's leading provider of screening and security-based information and service solutions. In that role, I was responsible for 3,500 employees and a $400mm budget.
Kim: I am also a proud graduate of The University of Alabama with a degree in marketing. After gaining a lot of experience and insight working as a business analyst for TSYS, I returned to The University of Alabama to get my M.B.A. Before joining PrideStaff, I worked as an account manager for TM Capital, directly overseeing loan officers and loan programs.
The Big Picture: We were raised in Alabama. We're U of A grads (Roll Tide). We've always considered Alabama home. And, we're glad to be back! After spending the past 10 years gaining amazing experience and business insight in Atlanta and Washington D.C., we were extremely excited to start the next chapter of our journey right here in friendly Alabama. We were drawn to PrideStaff because of the amazing people, culture and leadership of the organization. The fact that we are able to operate a locally owned business with the support structure of a well-respected national company was the perfect situation for us.
The Scoop on Staffing: Our goal is to be a true resource for both our clients and candidates--building lasting relationships based on trust, exceptional service and outstanding value. This mantra has helped PrideStaff earn national and industry recognition as a leader. These accolades include being named by Forbes Magazine as a top five leader in the staffing industry, and consistently ranked as a Best of Staffing firm by research firm Inavero.
Secrets to Success: We feel it always boils down to attitude. We have instilled an attitude of success and positivity from the owner's office to our reception desk, to the candidates we place on assignment. We put our customers first and approach every challenge with a positive and innovative outlook. Attitude is everything.
Stress Relief: We're successful business partners, best friends and most importantly, soul mates. So when it comes to stress relief, it's really about spending time with our family. We enjoy traveling, cooking and trying to stay in shape! And, did we mention we're 'Bama grads? So, Saturdays in the Fall are a pretty exciting time for us. Roll Tide!
