Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer
Kurt brings over 20 years of experience, spending many years in the staffing industry. He helped two privately-held companies, Transworld Services Group and Advantage Services Group (ASG), grow and position for sale to publicly-traded entities, Corestaff Services and ClearPoint Business Solutions. Both sold well above industry multiple averages. Throughout these processes, Kurt held nearly every position across field operations, business development and executive management. Kurt has also been a part of several M & A due diligence and consultation teams.
At Transworld, Kurt began as an intern and went on to eventually oversee the company after its acquisition by Corestaff. Kurt was actively involved in the growth of Transworld’s Productivity Solutions model and in implementing the company’s ISO 9002 certification. He was instrumental in the integration of Transworld into Corestaff, offering ongoing guidance and leadership. Kurt remained with the team for five years post-acquisition, specializing in sales and operations.
At ASG, Kurt joined the firm as an equity partner supervising the Florida market. At the time, ASG provided construction staffing and limited commercial staffing services and was only located in Orlando. Under Kurt’s leadership, the firm organically grew in Florida to seven service locations in three years. Revenues grew from less than $1 million to nearly $30 million. Kurt also built out the organization’s corporate support services, led the development of complementary add-value service offerings (Executive Placement, Hospitality, Contact Center Services and Payroll/Insurance Services) and supported the expansion to becoming a nationwide staffing services provider with additional operations throughout California and Texas. Upon acquisition to ClearPoint Business Resources, ASG was a $150 million performance-based staffing company with 30 nationwide offices and multiple VOPs.
In addition to Kurt’s staffing experience, he founded two companies: one providing a variety of financial and personal development services (Strategic Life Concepts) and another that provided consultative business, workforce and technology solutions (WELLSOLV=D Services).
Kurt is involved with a variety of charitable boards, trade organizations, sports teams as well as civic and political endeavors. He continues to stay active within his alma mater, Rollins College, as a 10-year board member of the Rollins Alumni Association with two years as its President. He also spent three years on Rollins’ Board of Trustees and was bestowed the honor of being named the 2015 Alumni Service award recipient. Today, Kurt serves as an advisor and member of the Executive Council for the Chi Psi Fraternity along with volunteering for other various community organizations.
Kurt spent many years in central Florida and now resides with his wife (Carol) of 20 years and their three children in Cincinnati, Ohio.
