Reg has been a Licensed Professional Engineer since 1975, and earned his Certified Personnel Consultant designation as soon as he met the two-year experience requirement in the recruiting industry. He has been an invited speaker at National and International Conferences aimed at the recruiting industry, and is a former Member of the Advisory Board of the Recruiters’ On-Line Network.
Reg has focused his recruiting practice on engineering, manufacturing and technical positions predominately in the electrical, electronic, mechanical and software manufacturing environments, although he has also rescued a number of clients from difficulty in unrelated industries and for positions with which he had no previous experience. For example, he has successfully placed HR Directors, Controllers, General Managers, and Sales Managers into a variety of client companies.
As a result of his broad technical background and extensive experience in industry, Reg brings to the table an in-depth understanding of a wide variety of staffing requirements, issues and problems, and is particularly adept at understanding and resolving the more technical and/or difficult ones. A Consultant in the true sense of the word, he often finds himself in the position of being able to offer useful and constructive advice to his clients.
