Back to The Team


Hometown: Belleville, Illinois

School: Missouri Baptist University

Why SSG?

Dave had previous experience working for Executive Recruitment firms, but was turned off by a bad culture experience. When Dave found out SSG had a dog-friendly office, he decided to reach out for an interview. Dave came to SSG and onboarded incredibly fast. He hasn’t looked back since and is probably the #1 shining example of what we want our culture to continue to be.

Favorite Thing About Headhunting: 

Helping clients find the best talent to continue their growth, taking clients to lunch, bringing donuts into the office, and mentoring all of the team members that come into his office to chat.
