A colleague recently told me that she felt like every job she has had has helped to prepare her for the role she just accepted. I feel the same way about the long, winding path I have taken through the talent acquisition world. It’s been a fun ride, and I am excited to take all of those experiences with me as I embark on a new adventure. On Monday, May 20th, I join ERE Media, Inc. as the editor of SourceCon.
I am humbled and excited to have the opportunity work with the SourceCon community and the ERE Media team. I have been to two SourceCon events in recent years (New York and Dallas). The lessons learned, and the contacts made, have definitely helped to shape who I am as a professional.
My Commitments to the SourceCon community:
- When ERE acquired SourceCon in October, 2009, David Manaster, ERE’s founder and chairman, wrote, “I and the ERE team respect the grassroots nature of the Sourcing community, and as we grow the event, we will do it in a way that respects the distinct (and quirky) ethos of the community.” I commit to focus on listening to, and serving, the community of sourcers who made the SourceCon brand what it is today.
- I will help SourceCon stay the top resource for sourcing and recruiting teams by providing a place where knowledge, and best practices, are shared openly.
- I will work tirelessly to organize a dynamic conference, with relevant information, for sourcing practitioners, and their leaders.
So Who Am I?
I have worked in talent acquisition and recruiting for over a decade. This time has been spent in diverse environments ranging from third party agency settings, recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) providers, and internal corporate HR departments. Currently I work as a sourcing manager for a large RPO.
On a personal note: I live in Dallas, and I am a proud father of three (ages 6, 8, and 12). I have been married to my wife, Kristi, for 15 years.
In the meantime, consider contributing to SourceCon.
