“Being a Manufacturing Recruiter with iRiS Manufacturing Recruiting is not just a job but a calling! Many manufacturing candidates in consumer product, power, food & beverage, automotive manufacturing jobs are satisfied after working with me.”

I have "talent scouting" in my blood. J&J used a "headhunter" to recruit me into pharmaceutical sales right out of college. In less than a year, I was the youngest rep to recruit and refer someone. Within five years I was recruited again, to a F50 competitor. My gig: 17 medical centers in Manhattan, NY. Those experiences led me to become a recruiter with the leading contingency fee agency in the world.

After I achieved Account Executive of the Year twice in Wisconsin, I relocated to Virginia and continued to develop the intuitive skills required to be find the best leaders for business and non-profit organizations.

Now, since 2002, I have enjoyed manufacturing recruiting in the Midwest to the Southeast,with billings over 4 million. The skills required to be a world class recruiter with iRiS Recruiting Solutions are so much more than I imagined when I began over 25 years ago. The years of honing these unique skills in combination with newer technologies haveimpacted the careers and lives of thousands of talented professionals and organizations.

My focus: Full cycle recruiting of manufacturing leaders in operations, engineering, quality, EHS, sales in the Automotive (Tier one supply chain), Aerospace, Consumer and Medical industries. Those with metal forming/stamping/machining, welding, injection molding manufacturing in the Midwest /Southeast –to overseas in China. I have been trusted with the careers of professionals from the "C suit” to the "T floor” (Technician), and I have done it with integrity, thoroughness and confidentiality.
