Key Technical Solutions



Discipline: Engineering, Electric Utilities, IT Nationwide

I am certified in Advanced Sourcing Techniques with the ability to find those ‘hard-to-find’ candidates – and these are the positions I enjoy working on. I choose to work with top candidates and top clients in their industry, and take pride in matching the right person with the right position for the benefit of the candidate and client; I look to work with clients not just on a one-position assignment, but as if we will be working together for the next 20 years – and I hope we do! I have almost a decade of engineering-related experience in both staffing and recruiting and look to ‘partner’ with clients and candidates as a trusted advisor; I work hard not to be seen as ‘just another vendor’ and put a strong emphasis on developing a strong and long-lasting relationship; both with clients and candidates. Key Technical Solutions also has an Engineering Team of over fifty (50) Engineers & Designers who can provide on-site or off-site Project Management, FE Analysis (FEA), 3D Modeling, and drafting/ detailing services; we have a strong focus on the off-highway, mobile machinery market, the Electric Utilities market, and specialty machinery. Key has worked on turn-key engineering projects and have the capability to ‘manufacture’ talent by using client reference drawings and training them at our facilities so they can ‘hit the ground running’ when they start for our clients. This helps us to better understand your needs/openings as we have engineers available to assist us, if needed. Key also has the ability to perform CAD (2D, 3D, and Electrical) assessments, as well as training in mechanical, electrical, and structural design and engineering. I often choose to work with ‘Passive’ candidates, or those who are not actively looking for jobs, as they are often top performers in their field and perform at the highest levels for our clients. When working with Key, you will find me and the team friendly, personable, and passionate in what we do – we listen to the needs of client, and always respond in a timely manner whether it’s to deliver candidates, or just to provide a status update on your search. We will not ‘flood’ your inbox with marginal candidates, but always target ‘quality over quantity.’ I always return calls promptly, and always strive to deliver the best talent with the assistance of our strong team of experienced Recruiters and Engineers. Both our Recruiting team and our Engineering team can act as an ‘extension’ of your Engineering department, providing assistance with your career opportunities, as well as your engineering projects. With our training and ‘candidate development’ capabilities, we are one of the few firms who can deliver candidates who understand your products, projects, and engineering standards from their first day. Key also has the ability to provide on-site or off-site IT Consulting covering a wide range of IT areas. While many of our clients are located in Wisconsin and the Midwest, Key also works with clients across the US – contact us today to see how we can assist you in growing your business!
