Fast forward to 1999, after a career that took him up into the Boardroom while working with a couple of national Furniture retailers, Bill decided to start his own recruiting firm. Using the limited material found in the early days of the Internet, he put together a plan, launched a website, printed a brochure and headed to High Point Market and Resource Center. After performing search work with over 150 clients over the next 6 years in a small boutique firm setting, Bill sold his firm in 2006. He decided he wanted to go back into a leadership role within the industry and continue on his quest to learn more and lead people again. He was hired by Macy’s Logistics and Operations and he went out to Los Angeles to turn around the struggling Furniture and Bedding Distribution centers in Southern and Northern California.
In 2012, after 5 years of success and helping his team and operation be awarded National Awards for service, Bill realized that his true calling and passion was returning to recruitment and executive search. With a sound business platform and prior recruitment firm lessons he aligned himself with the best direct hire recruitment firm in the country MRINETWORK. Within months Bill emerged from some of the best classroom interactive Recruitment training and was quickly was up and running Connector Team Recruiting. With his wife Buffy they worked hard in the early years to build the premier search firm in the Furniture | Mattress and Appliance verticals.
