After a successful Fortune 500 career where I ended up as the VP of Sales for Mens Stores at Gucci/Lanvin I became an entrepreneur and launched a chain of computer stores, a software company, a top 100 web site and helped take a software company public however my passion was becoming an executive recruiter.

I write about recruitment, Social Branding, including both networking, media and how recruitment and staffing firms can effectively use it.

I''m an advocate for Pulmonary Fibrosis - the ninja killer (few know about it) that strikes over 48,000 Americans annually with a death rate of 40,000 per year, same as Breast cancer. Although Social Branding is my focus I closely follow developments in Technology, Video, Robotics as well as the bleeding edge.

My Background

I went from sales and marketing management with fortune 500 companies such as Revlon, Max Factor and Helene Curtis, to the computer and software industries where I launched a chain of computer stores and participated in taking a software company public. I joined Management Recruiters International (MRI) in 1986 and was their National Rookie of the year in 1987. As an executive recruiter I created a software company focused on software for recruiting and staffing firms, and founded Recruiters OnLine Network (RON), a top 100 web site. I sold my software business in 2002 and web businesses in 2010.

I have been a founder and board member of the Pinnacle Society recognizing achievement in the staffing industry, a national speaker for NAPS, served on the Board of Directors of The Texas Association Staffing Services (TAPS), was an officer with the Metroplex Association of Personnel Services (MAAPS) as well as a founder of the local Dallas Independent Recruiters Group (IRG) and a lifetime member of the USMC Force Recon Association (FRA).
Name someone you most admire
My Dad for life lessons, Bob Bassman for how to become a recruiter, my wife Patty, our children and grandchildren on why to love life and the USMC for love of country.
Which blogs would you recommend people read?, plus my many, many friends, bloggers and vloggers.
What recruiting tools can you not live without?
The iPhone first, my Mac second with all its tools and toys.
What do you like best about
Openness and interactivity.

Hi, my name is Kevin and I am the operations manager for a healthcare recruiting firm in Los Angeles, CA. I’m reaching out to you because you indicated on your profile that you were in healthcare staffing and possibly open to doing some splits. We have a lot of open job orders and offer a 50/50 fee split. Would you be open to discussing ways we could collaborate from time to time?

Hello Bill!
It's been a wild ride in the recruiting world hasn't it? The RON is still up and running. Is Tony still in charge there? Guess I can go find out; I need to catch up with you and explain where I have been and my next plan of attack to fill every available opening in the US! I'll search for your personal email here and if you get this, send me a note at
