Greg Weido, Regional Managing Director

“Does anyone ever set out to intentionally become a Recruiter? Stumbling into and embracing this industry all most 30 years ago has been the best leap of faith I ever made in life. It is a profession that chose me. Recruiting is a passion not a job. It can become an obsession. The work offers continual challenges, regular displacement out of the comfort zone, fast and furious starts and stops, a professional life standardized by continuing to learn, bleeds well into your personal life choices and decision making as well as the opportunity to literally meet and add value to hundreds of others’ lives. This profession has allowed, afforded me to explore my personal interests to the fullest.
My personal journey into Recruiting began in 1990 in Houston Texas and has taken me all over the world; meeting and interacting with business and industry leaders, dignitaries, celebrities and everyday people just like myself. I am an expert external recruiter with measurable, proven ability, both nationally and internationally to build, develop and lead top performing sales teams. I am an expert recruiter, trainer, coach, mentor, career counselor and public speaker. I can confidently step into and easily adapt to any situation.”
