BRIAN TREECE
CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER
I grew up in Olney, Illinois, and attended Murray State University earning a BS degree in Accounting in 1983. Upon graduation, I moved to Indianapolis where I started my career with a regional distribution company. Over the next several years, I performed a variety of accounting and operational roles. However, I decided to leave the accounting profession and accepted a role as a recruiter with a national staffing firm.

After several years, I decided to move to a smaller staffing firm where I placed Accounting and Financial professionals focusing on the Central Indiana area. In 1999, after seven successful years, I left this small staffing firm and co-founded Pinnacle Partners. Pinnacle has experienced tremendous growth over the years and I attribute this growth, in part, to the principals I learned early in my career. These principals include building long lasting relationships by providing excellent customer service and superior results. I am very proud of our team of dedicated employees that has facilitated this growth.

On a personal note, I am married with three children. When I am not at work, you can usually find me coaching a youth basketball game. I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to coach for over 24 years. I am a huge Green Bay Packers and St. Louis Cardinals fan and enjoy traveling to watch them play.

My career began at CEDIA as a Latin America Development Manager. At CEDIA, I traveled throughout Latin America hosting various tradeshows and educational events in countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Dominican Republic and Mexico. I speak fluent Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese. After CEDIA, my career transitioned to banking. I spent 3 years in banking in both management and sales roles.

I joined Pinnacle Partners in September of 2014 as an IT Recruiter. I love the opportunity to help people transition into a new career that fits a candidate’s goals and aspirations.

I enjoy spending time with my family. I am an avid Colts, Pacers, IU basketball and Michigan.

I am a life- long resident of Indianapolis, Indiana. After graduating from Bishop Chatard High School, I attended Ball State University earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology and Health Science.

In 2008, with a desire to help others achieve their goals, I joined Pinnacle Partners. I have held multiple positions in our industry leading to my current role of IT Recruiting Manager. My wide range of experience gives me the unique perspective of being able to relate to and build professional relationships at every level of our industry. My experience has given me a keen understanding of the staffing needs of our clients on a strategic level. I am fun loving, adventurous, and enjoy meeting new people and establishing positive relationships. I enjoy spending time with my parents, brother, three sisters, five nieces, two nephews and my puppy Pipa.

Once you enter into a recruiting partnership with me, you will have a sense of being part of the Pinnacle Partner family.
HEATHER BURGESS
Sr. Account Manager
I was born in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and moved to Indianapolis at the age of 7. I attended Hanover College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in business. After college, I spent 6 years in retail management and inside sales before entering the world of staffing. I joined a staffing firm where I spent the next 8 years as a direct hire recruiter in the engineering/manufacturing sector. Having experience in both sales and recruiting, I knew my passion was on the sales side. In sales, I enjoy working directly with clients, developing relationships and satisfying my customer’s staffing needs. I joined Pinnacle Partners as an account manager and I can’t say enough about this company and the team we have here at Pinnacle, otherwise known as my work family. Their high idealism, integrity, principles and ethics are unparalleled to anything I have ever known or seen. It truly is a stand-up organization and one that I am so very proud to be a part of.

When I am not at work, I am usually spending time with my husband, our new beautiful baby girl Ava and our spoiled little dog. I enjoy anything outdoors, all sports, teaching Sunday school, giving back to my community through volunteer work and vacationing to sunny Florida.
MICHELLE TANKERSLEY
Senior IT Account Executive
I have been in the IT staffing industry for 22 yrs. During this time I have had the opportunity to participate in recruiting, sales, account management and resource management. I truly enjoy connecting IT talent with career opportunities and believe that I have found my niche. I could not imagine a more rewarding career than helping others achieve and grow in this field.

Outside of work I care for aging family members and value any time that I can spend with them. I also enjoy travel and cruising and go to tropical destinations as often as I can.
Dave Reese
Senior Director of Staffing
I grew up as a part of a large family in Franklin, Indiana and attended Manchester College, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting. Following college, I spent the initial five years of my career working in the accounting field within the manufacturing industry, mainly focusing on cost accounting.

In 2000, I had the opportunity to join Pinnacle Partners and develop the Temporary Accounting Staffing Division. The opportunity to join a management team of former co-workers was exciting, and it made for an easy transition into a company with very strong ethical and business leadership. Since joining Pinnacle, my responsibilities have grown along with the company. I currently manage all aspects of the Accounting, Administrative, and Manufacturing/Engineering divisions. I am proud of the growth that we have experienced at Pinnacle.

My time at Pinnacle has allowed me to have a very rewarding career while never losing sight of my other priorities in life. My wife, Sara, and I have three boys who are very active in sports; they definitely keep us on the go. My hobbies include coaching youth athletics and serving on the Board of Directors for the Franklin Boys and Girls Club and the Franklin Wrestling Club. I enjoy being involved in the same youth programs that were so important to me when I was young.
STEVE MATTEI
Chief Operating Officer
I am from Louisville, KY, and attended the University of Dayton where I earned a BS degree in Computer Science. After graduation in 1986, I moved to Chicago where I started my career as a Systems Analyst for a proprietary trading firm in the heart of Chicago’s financial district. Although this opportunity was exciting and challenging, I had a strong desire to move my career in a different direction. In 1990, I accepted a role as an IT Recruiter for a national staffing firm.

In 1993, my wife and I moved to Indianapolis where I joined a small staffing firm and continued in the role of IT staffing. For the next 6 years, I worked extensively throughout the Central Indiana area assisting countless companies and professionals with Information Technology staffing and career development. In 1999 I co-founded Pinnacle Partners with Herb Benshoof and Brian Treece.

On a personal note, I am married with four children. Our family enjoys all kinds of sports including lacrosse, football, basketball, and volleyball. Whether I am coaching or watching from the stands, I enjoy being involved with youth sports and sharing in these activities with my kids.
DAN COLE
Director of IT Staffing
I was born and raised in northwestern Indiana and attended Ball State University earning a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice and criminology. After spending a few years in the Southwest and two years as a 6th grade teacher in central Florida, I relocated back to Indiana to be closer to my family.

My IT staffing career began as a recruiter in 1995. After a few short months, I moved into an account management role. In 2002, I joined Pinnacle as an Account Manager as they were expanding into IT contract placement. Currently I am an IT Business Development Manager for Pinnacle.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and stay active participating in a variety of outdoor activities. I like to watch and play all sports. I am also an avid fan of the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Cubs.

CATHY COTTRELL
Senior Recruiter
I grew up in Fishers, Indiana and have remained there since college. I attended Indiana University in Bloomington my sophomore year where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology. After college, I joined a national placement agency where I staffed clerical and light industrial candidates. After 7 years, I accepted a role with a smaller staffing firm specializing in financial and accounting staffing.

After 8 years, the company sold and the culture quickly became different. At that time, I was recruited to join Pinnacle Partners, which was formed by former colleagues of mine. I have been at Pinnacle since 2001 as a Recruiter for the Accounting and Finance division. I have seen tremendous growth within my time at Pinnacle and yet the core beliefs of the company remain the same. To always provide the best customer service to both the company and the candidate. While everyone works hard in the company the owners have always had a deep respect for family obligations.

When I am not at Pinnacle, I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter and extended family.
KACY WILSON
Recruiting Manager
I grew up in Franklin, Ind. where I reside with my family today. After high school, I attended I.U.P.U.I. and graduated with a Bachelor‘s degree in communication. Soon after graduating college, I began working in the staffing industry as a recruiter for a firm that focused on administrative and light industrial positions.

In 2005, I wanted to branch out and expand my recruiting experience. I had the opportunity to join Pinnacle Partners in a role that would help to further develop their Administrative Recruiting Division as well as expose me to the staffing of accounting professionals. In 2012, I was promoted to Manager of Administrative Recruiters. I manage a staff of three who support the temporary, temp-to-hire and direct hire administrative placement needs of our clients. I am excited to be a part of this growing division.

Pinnacle Partners is an organization that promotes a family-friendly environment for which I am very thankful. When I started seven years ago, I had a 9-month-old as well as a 2-year-old. As they grow, my children continue to be very active in school and recreational programs. My husband, Jason, and I are involved in each of their activities. I also enjoy working out, and I am currently training for my first half marathon. I am proud to work for a company that allows me to have a successful career while also balancing a family and maintaining an active lifestyle.
ADAM WACHTEL
Lead IT Recruiter
I was born and raised in Robinson, IL and attended nearby Indiana State University in Terre Haute, IN. Immediately upon graduating, with much thought and careful consideration, I made the move to Indianapolis to begin my career.

My career started at John Hancock as a Financial Advisor. I immediately passed the Series 6 & 63 allowing me the ability to provide financial stewardship and guidance to my clients’ investments and insurance needs. From there my journey took me to Alabama to run my family’s new car dealerships for several years allowing me the opportunity to run a large successful business. Eventually we sold the business and I was happy to move back to Indianapolis where I spent the next five years as a Senior Product Advisor within the Healthcare Insurance industry.

I joined Pinnacle Partners in early 2011 and was promoted to Senior IT Recruiter in 2012. I regularly attend networking events including IndyJUG which is sponsored by Pinnacle Partners. I enjoy engaging in the technologies that are relevant to candidates that I represent.

Each year I attend as many sporting events as possible. You can find me at all the Colts home games as well as many Pacers games. I also make the trip over to Cincinnati to cheer on the Reds. Other hobbies include listening to music and staying up to date on technologies.
MICHELLE PAPPAS
Controller
I was raised in Merrillville, Indiana, and attended Indiana University where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting. I started my career in Chicago with a small public accounting firm. Although this was great experience, I was soon married and found myself relocating to Indianapolis with my husband. I spent the next several years as an Accounting Manager for a larger telecommunications manufacturer. Along the way, I developed a passion for travel which led me to working in the travel industry in my spare time. However, we found ourselves relocating to Michigan so I took this opportunity to work full time in the travel industry. In 2000, we returned back to Indianapolis where I joined Pinnacle Partners in a part time capacity. Part time evolved into full time as my children grew. I have held many positions at Pinnacle Partners, and I am now the Corporate Controller. I have witnessed Pinnacle’s growth first-hand, and I have been given the opportunity to work with an excellent group of employees and clients. I enjoy coming to work and am honored to work for a company that has allowed me to have a successful career while balancing my family.

In my free time, I continue to work with travel planning, and I also enjoy scrapbooking, travel, spending time with family and my dog Lucky.
HERB BENSHOOF
CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
Growing up in Iowa, I learned the value of a strong work ethic at an early age. Losing my mother at the age of eight, I helped raise my younger brother and sister as my father worked two jobs to support four children. I began working at the age of 12, went on to work full and part-time jobs at CPA firms during my college years, and paid for my entire college education. That work ethic has carried me through my successful 30 year career in the CPA profession, including the last 25 years in business and industry. After working in public accounting for five years with two Big Six firms, Deloitte & Touche and KPMG Peat Marwick, I decided to branch out into the world of executive recruiting for Accounting, Finance and Information Technology.

Pinnacle Partners was cofounded in Indiana in September 1999 to assist Accounting, Finance and Information Technology professionals in locating career opportunities. Pinnacle Partners has helped hundreds of candidates each year develop their career strategies. Pinnacle Partner’s unique approach to understanding an individual’s career/personal wish list has made Pinnacle Partner’s one of the leaders in professional staffing.

MICHELLE HAIMBAUGH
Lead IT Recruiter
I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana and graduated from Purdue University in Retail Management. After college, I worked as a footwear buyer for a national retailer and a large department store for ten years. After taking some time off to raise my three children, I re-entered the workforce on the sales side of the business selling customer service and sales training to companies.

From this experience, I learned the value of building relationships and servicing the customer. At Pinnacle Partners, I have had experience on the recruiting and the account management side. From working both sides of the business, I’ve decided my passion is recruiting and really enjoy connecting IT professionals with career enhancing opportunities.
CLAY PARDIECK

BEN NICHOLSON
Finance & Accounting Recruiter
I grew up close to Indianapolis and, for the most part, have stayed close to home. I went to school at Taylor University (Go Trojans!) where I had the opportunity to play four years of college football and graduated with a degree in Accounting. I went to work for a national CPA firm in South Bend in their audit group and after a couple of years, transitioned out into corporate accounting. After meeting my wife, we moved to San Francisco for her job and spent a few years in the Bay Area, where I worked as an outsourced Controller for a portfolio of tech start-ups.

We eventually moved back to be closer to family and I came into Pinnacle as a candidate, looking for a position in the local market. I was instantly impressed with the relational, deliberate approach to the placement process. I wasn’t just another resume needed to make a transaction. I ended up joining Pinnacle as a recruiter in the spring of 2013 and have loved it ever since. With my background in accounting, I'm able to leverage that knowledge to better understand the technical nuances of the needs of my clients, as well as the backgrounds of the candidates I work with. I partner with public and privately-held companies all over Central Indiana to help them identify and hire the best accounting and finance talent the market has to offer, with positions ranging from Staff Accountant, up through CFO. When I’m not in the office, you can find me watching sports (Cubs, Colts, Pacers, Boilers) or the latest superhero movie, or hauling my daughter around to whatever sport/activity she’s involved in that season.
Sherry Wille
Sr. Account Manager
I have lived most of my adult life in Indiana. I went to college at Ball State where I graduated with a degree in Marketing and a minor in Interpersonal Relations. After college, I moved to Indianapolis and entered the staffing industry. I began as a recruiter for a national staffing firm then moved into sales working for an accounting placement firm in 1995. I joined the Pinnacle team in 2001 and it’s been a great experience for me. With over 21 years of industry experience in the Indianapolis Marketplace, I have been able to meet some incredible clients and candidates. I enjoy developing strong business relationships with my clients and helping them to meet their strategic goals through staffing. Pinnacle was only three years old when I started and it’s been wonderful to see the growth. I truly believe our growth is due to our focus on doing what is right for both our candidates and our clients and never losing sight of their needs.

When I am not at work, I like to spend time with my husband and son. We like to travel and enjoy spending time with our extended family.

I worked as an Account Executive for a large bank over the course of almost four years selling home equity products to broker offices.

KIM SPEERLY
Senior IT Account Executive
I was born and raised in Central Illinois and attended Illinois State University. I soon after started my career as a Technical Recruiter and have been in the IT staffing business since. I have a true passion for helping my clients and candidates find the right match. I was an IT recruiter for about 4 years and then decided to take an Account Executive role so that I could better understand my client’s needs around technology working with an organization representing solutions for IBM, Microsoft, & CISCO. I consulted with customers across North America to provide “Best in Class” solutions. I then took some time to work in the government sector for about 2 years and then jumped back into technology opening up a branch for a Technology Staffing firm in Central Illinois where I spent 5 ½ years growing a very profitable office.

I relocated to Indiana due to my husband’s job and joined Pinnacle Partners as a Senior Account Executive. I kept hearing how Pinnacle dominated the market with their people, process & solutions that they provide to their customers. I am extremely excited to be here and looking forward to doing what I love best and that is helping people! I have been doing this my whole career across the country and look forward to meeting all the clients and connections that I can here in Indiana and getting involved in the local community.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends and watching a variety of activities with my two girls which are in cheer and play soccer. I am also an active participant in National Charity League-Crossroads Chapter here locally.
MARINA KONOW
IT Research Coordinator
I was born in Biloxi, MS, where my family was stationed while my dad served in the Navy. We ended up moving to Fort Wayne, IN, which was where my parents were originally from. I spent most of my life there, spending time with family, friends, and my running shoes. I attended a small, private high school, and graduated with around 170 students.

When it came time to find a university, I fell in love with IUPUI, located in the downtown part of Indianapolis. I hadn’t heard of it until I was recruited to run there, and I still see it as a gem of the city. (Go Jags)

I was lucky to be a part of the cross country and track team while I was there, which only helped to mold my competitive nature. I am so excited and grateful join the Pinnacle Partners team and to channel my competitiveness into something additional to sports.

In my free time, I like to hang out with friends and family (just like everyone, I know). I also enjoy reading and circling places on my Europe map of places I’d like to travel to. Any suggestions, just let me know.

I am from Whiteland, IN. I did move a lot as a kid (Army Brat), I lived in Germany for a couple of years before moving back to Indiana permanently. I graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I was involved in many on campus organizations, including Kappa Delta Sorority and raising funds and participating in Riley Children’s Hospital’s Dance Marathon. Pinnacle Partners is my first career out of college. I cannot wait for the opportunity, experience, and relationships that being an Administrative Recruiter for Pinnacle will bring me.

JESSICA READ
IT ACCOUNT MANAGER
I was born in China and moved all the way to the US and settled in the small southern Indiana town of Seymour, IN. I grew up figure skating, running cross country, and playing in corn fields like any good southern Indiana gal. After college, I dabbled in a couple of sales jobs before falling into recruiting, and it was love at first sight.

My passion for recruiting can be traced back to my pre-professional days. Whether as a member of my college Ultimate Frisbee team at IU, desperately trying to recruit players for a sport no one’s heard of, or as a high schooler trying to set up an adult reading program in my hometown. I’ve been on a recruiting path from the very beginning, Why, you might ask? I like getting others excited and motivated for their next big chapter in life. As a recruiter at Pinnacle Partners, I can’t wait to get you excited about a new job in IT!

Outside of the office, I’m probably doing one of three things. I’m either, A. Doing my best to taste every craft beer in Indiana. B. Spending time with friends and enjoying this thing called my 20s, or C. Trying to “recruit” people as crazy as me to play on my club Ultimate team.
JENNIFER HASLETT

The majority of my work history has been in sales (Telecommunication and Advertising). In 2019, I joined Pinnacle Partners as an IT recruiter. I can draw many parallels to my time in sales and have really enjoyed helping people find their next great job in IT! I am confident that I can help any talented IT professional excel in the Indianapolis job market.

In my time off, I enjoy travel and am passionate about seeing the world. I’ve been all over but consider the Caribbean to be my absolute favorite place to visit. When I’m not at work (or on vacation), I enjoy live music, playing with my dog and spending time with my family and friends. I am also passionate about and involved in many philanthropic organizations and projects.

I have a previous 10 (+) year career in Food & Beverage, but I made the transition to Recruiting in 2011, supporting Salem International University as an Online Admissions Recruiter.

In the Spring of 2013, I began my career in Talent Acquisition, building meaningful relationships, providing top talent and being absolutely engaged at every level. Industries I’ve successfully supported include Enterprise Banking, State and Federal Government, Automotive and Medical Device Engineering.
