OpalStaff, a leading technology-based staffing firm, today announced that it has hired John Poling as its new senior sales executive. Poling, who brings more than 20 years of recruiting experience to OpalStaff, is responsible for new business acquisition and for creating business development opportunities.
“OpalStaff is having its best year in company history, and we intend to continue that momentum into 2015 with John’s help,” said Trevor Simm, president, OpalStaff. “John has a keen understanding of the staffing industry, having placed everything from entry-level employees to C-level executives, with an emphasis on IT and technical verticals. His background, experience, and record of results make his perfectly suited to help take OpalStaff to the next level.”
Poling joined OpalStaff from DES Recruiting, Inc where he was responsible for business development, executive search, and talent management consulting on a global scale. Prior to that, Poling worked as a branch manager at Robert Half Technology, as lead U.S. recruiter at Hatch, and as a corporate recruiter for Ariba. Additionally, Poling spent a combined 18 years as a senior account manager at TekSystems, and as a director of branch operations at Aerotek.
Led by Simm, OpalStaff continues to grow at record pace. Over the last several years, OpalStaff has earned numerous business accolades, including being twice named to Inc. Magazine’s list of fastest growing private companies in the U.S., “Best Place to Work” by the Baltimore Business Journal, two Future 50 Awards and a Circle of Excellence award from SmartCEO. Simm has also received numerous recognitions, including an Entrepreneur of the Year Finalist award from Ernst & Young, and most recently a 40 Under 40 award from the Baltimore Business Journal.
Earlier this year, Simm announced the launch of a new staffing company, Talos Solutions. Like OpalStaff, Talos serves companies from a variety of industries, including aircraft/aerospace, scientific, biotechnology and healthcare, government and defense, construction, manufacturing and industrial engineering, logistics and transportation. While OpalStaff focuses predominantly on IT and technology specific companies and positions, Talos Solutions works primarily with companies that are not IT specific and/or do not require IT specific candidates.
Founded in 2002, OpalStaff is a veteran-owned technology-based staffing firm that provides companies and government organizations with IT and technical engineering staff augmentation on both contract and permanent basis across a wide range of industries including defense, aerospace, biotechnology and communications.
