What do you like best about Recruiting?

I like being able to create a better opportunity for people, that they may not otherwise know about. Also, helping our candidates really achieve where they want to go in the next 2-5 years by making little moves in the career – really making the difference in someone’s life.

How did you get started with destinationone?

I knew KD from 2011, while I was working at another company we kept in touch. I realized that I wanted more of a challenge and so I talked with KD and over a few meeting he shared his vision with me and I with him. I realized that with such a large vision I needed help to achieve it. We clicked, in terms of where he saw destinationone’s future as a business.

What specifically drew you towards CERM (Construction, Engineering, Real-Estate, and Mining)?

In 2006, I worked for a different company as their Global Operations Manager and by chance, I had friends in the construction industry that asked for my assistance in recruitment. Quickly, I realized that I had a knack for the industry. Which prompted me to start my own company in 2007. I focused in construction and engineering because, at that time, there was a real demand for it. Once I saw the opportunistic potential, it came out of a need for that industry and passion of my own.

What are you most excited for in the new year?

I’m excited because 2018 is a crucial year for us for the continual expansion of destinationone in the next 5 to 10 years.
