I have over 25 years of experience in sales, sales management, business ownership, business development, etc, within North America and Europe. This experience has enabled me to develop a unique background that fits exceptionally well with the hiring needs of the Electronics Component Manufacturing industry.

When I was first employed in the recruitment industry in 2007 as a business development manager, I asked hiring managers and HR professionals a lot of questions. I wanted to know what they hated about the recruitment industry. I learned a lot and decided I was not going to be a “recruiter”. So, in 2011 when I was on my first Apex Global Recruiting client call my soon to be client said to me “you were not what I was expecting” …so I had to ask “what were you expecting?” …he stated, “a recruiter!”

If you are tired of working with “recruiters” and you are seeking to develop a true partnership with a sales talent “diamond miner” who is deadly serious about providing you with the right sales professional for the right position at the right time …then we should talk.

A Satisfied Client

“I have worked with Rob on numerous occasions over the past few years in support of personnel placement for key roles. Rob is a hands-on recruiter from start to finish. Between careful identification of client needs, active identification of high-caliber candidates, and follow-through to final selection, he has been extremely effective at finding the right people and making the process efficient. I highly recommend him for assistance in filling mission-critical positions.”

He makes sure all the candidates meet the criteria that has been defined. He is a great example of “the harder I work the luckier I get”. Rob is a hardworking and dedicated professional who will find you the right person for the job! I would recommend and endorse Rob.”

A Happy Candidate

“I worked with Rob 1 1/2 years ago. He reached out to me via LinkedIn on a job opening I wasn’t aware of (unsolicited no less). He explained a little about the job and asked if I was interested. Once I said yes, he worked with me every step along the way, answering any questions I had, what the next steps were, where the hiring process stood, etc. He always answered his phone, but in the rare case I got his voicemail, he called right back and was equally as good about responding to emails. He is 100% professional and passionate about his clients. I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for a job or looking to hire someone.”
