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.
