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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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
Senior 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.

II grew up in Frankfort, IN and attended a small high school where I graduated with a class of under 70 students. I then decided to continue my studies with Ball State University. While attending BSU, I was involved in organizations such as Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women, SHRM, and Women’s Club Volleyball.

I decided to start my professional career with Pinnacle Partners as an Administrative Recruiter. I am grateful to work alongside such knowledgeable and professional individuals every day. Assisting qualified candidates to find careers they enjoy, and building relationships along the way has truly been a rewarding experience. The company culture Pinnacle provides is one that any employee would be happy to be a part of.

Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and 2 cats. Due to being born in near Boston, I am a Red Sox fan by default, but don’t worry – I would never root for the Patriots.
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.

BRYSON CRUSE
Engineering/Manufacturing Account Manager
Raised on the southside of Indianapolis I have always been an avid sports enthusiast that played football, basketball, baseball and golf. After high school I attended Ball State University where I graduated with a degree in Management of Information Systems.

After graduation I accepted a sales management role that allowed me to move to sunny south Florida. This was a great experience that allowed me to spend the next 4 years traveling all over the United States. During that time I was lucky enough to visit 42 states. When it was time to settle down and plant my roots I returned to central Indiana to be near family and friends.

When Pinnacle Partners decided to grow their Engineering & Manufacturing Recruiting division they reached out to me and I was so impressed with their culture and the success they have had in the Finance, Accounting and IT business units that I was thrilled to join their team. Pinnacle has a strong focus on customer service and always doing what is in the best interest of both clients and candidates. Since joining Pinnacle the support from all levels has been phenomenal. Definitely looking forward to tremendous growth and success in the future.

While I thoroughly enjoy the recruiting lifestyle when I am away from the office you will find me spending time with family, friends and most certainly my dog, Reggie.

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.

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.

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 held several positions during my 15 year tenure there. The 2 longest positions being a media center assistant and then a front office/attendance secretary at the High School.

I was born and raised in Central Illinois and attended Illinois State University. I soon after started by 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 worked for an IBM, Microsoft, & CISCO Gold Reseller where I was consulting 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 recently 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.

AMIE IRWIN
IT Recruiter
I was born and raised in what used to be a small town of Fortville. After high school I attended IUPUI and finished my bachelor’s degree online in Business Administration. I am currently going back to school to get my second bachelor’s degree in Human Resource Leadership & Development. I am firm believer in continuing to learn. The best manager I ever had did a wonderful job of coaching me and encouraging me to explore areas of HR until I found out what I did and didn’t like. Don’t settle for being average at everything – be great at something. My true passion within Human Resources is the employment laws. Right after graduating college I began my career working at a fortune 500 pharmaceutical company for almost 4 years. After that I branched off into HR at a non for profit. I have recruited for a little bit of everything including administrative, teachers, counselors’, IT, interior designers, labor and more.

In 2010, I met my husband Jeremy and in 2014, we were blessed with our now 4-year-old, Ireland. Outside of work you will find me doing the ‘typical’ soccer mom stuff. We are on my daughter’s 3rd season on soccer. I also enjoy baking, scrapbooking, and doing anything in the water! One interesting fact about me is I have an identical twin sister and yes, we live only 2 minutes away from each other!

JOHN LIND
IT Research Coordinator
I grew up in the South Suburbs of Chicago all my life. After graduating high school and saving a little bit of money attending a local community college, I attended Ball State University. I am a recent graduate with a degree in Human Resource Management. Upon graduation I had an internship with a company called the Applied Behavior Center for Autism. After completion of my internship I was lucky and grateful enough to land a position with Pinnacle as a Recruiting Associate.

Although I am now a recent Indianapolis resident, I still am a Chicago person at heart. I really enjoy watching and playing sports. The importance of family was instilled in me at an early age and probably why I enjoy team environments like sports and being here at Pinnacle. I have played baseball all my life, and I have also played football and basketball. I am actually pretty good at ping-pong unless my girlfriend is around. Anything competitive I am mostly likely game to play. I am a White Sox (still holding on), and big Bears fan. I am a major Notre Dame and Florida Gators fan. I also enjoy watching the Oklahoma City Thunder. If I am not out and active, I am most likely lounging around keeping track of my fantasy football team.

I was born and raised and raised in Indianapolis and have lived here all my life, except for 3 years in Dallas, TX. after graduating from Indiana University. I spent a couple years in banking and sales, but have been a IT Recruiter, Talent Acquisition Manager, and Program Manager for over 15 years at several organizations. I worked for Pinnacle Partners from 2004-2008 and rejoined the Pinnacle team in October of 2018.

Outside of the office, I love spending time with my wife Missy and daughter, Ashlynn. I love to travel and am an avid golfer, having played my entire life. I am also a huge Cubs, Colts, and IU basketball fan, love running, and doing almost anything outdoors.

My constant goal as a Recruiter is to work with each individual in an effort to create a relationship based on trust! I will put my full effort into understanding not only why you might be looking or career change, but most importantly, why you are looking and what your immediate and long-term career goals are both from a technical and corporate culture perspective.
