Stuart Lebovitz, Owner/Strategic-Partner
I grew up working in retail environments, specifically grocery stores. After earning a Bachelor's Degree in Economics from the University of Pittsburgh, I returned to retail, managing several successful operations.
A desire to grow personally led me to open a USA Baby store. The business evolved to meet market demand by providing high quality furniture and accessories, and it was this evolution which allowed me to build an extremely successful business. Looking for a fresh challenge, I sold the business and began exploring franchise options.
Over the years, my experiences have taught me the importance of hiring exceptional people who are a good fit for both the requirements of the job and the culture of the company. I know first-hand how difficult this can be – yet how critical it is to the success of a business.
The Big Picture:
At the end of the day, having a positive impact on the people we connect with is what’s important! I am dedicated to the professional growth of my clients, talent and staff who I serve in the Pittsburgh community. Perhaps most of all, I appreciate the fact that I'm helping people find jobs and helping small to mid-sized companies achieve greater success by supporting them with their hiring needs. By having an open ear, asking the right questions, analyzing situations and then providing the right solutions, I can help organizations solve strategic challenges.
The Scoop on Staffing:
I was initially attracted to staffing because of the growth potential in the industry, and I chose PrideStaff because of the business model they provide. At PrideStaff, we have the resources of a large, national firm and the level of service you would expect from a small, locally owned business. As the staffing industry continues to evolve, we are committed to staying ahead of industry trends so that we can execute our mission statement, “Consistently provide client experiences focused on what they value most.”
Secrets to Success:
There are several elements that are keys to success. An ongoing commitment to exceptional quality, integrity, respect, relationship building and hard work. We pride ourselves on incorporating these elements in meeting the needs of our clients.
I enjoy spending time with family and I really like the outdoors. Biking, hiking and backpacking are a few of my favorite ways to unwind.
