Keith is a bundle of energy wrapped in an enigma. He’s wise beyond his years, more lighthearted than a business owner should be, and while he can be a contrarian, he’s one of the most sincere and compassionate people that you’ll ever meet. He’s generous to a fault, and fiercely competitive (in soccer, throwing wadded up balls of paper into a bin, and most definitely in business). Reputation is everything to him and his ethics are second to none, but he might shove you a little in a race.

Sarah has been recruiting since 1999 and met a young Keith while they worked together at Robert Half. She recruits everyone; in line at the store, on the elevator, while stuck in a traffic jam. This can be quiet annoying to her pre-teen son, her husband, Keith (who hasn’t gotten into an elevator with her for the last ten years), and anyone she befriends. She is fiercely passionate about helping her clients and candidates succeed. She is goofy, loves her family, food, baseball and saying things that other people are thinking but won’t say. Consequently she also wrote all these bio’s.

Mike, “Minor” as he’s known, is the mystery man. It’s a mystery how he can talk to thousands of people, remember everything thing about them and then find them their perfect match. He’s a recruiting machine who has been at it for over a decade. Candidates love his low pressure approach, his honesty and humility. He’s a fantastic father and consummate family man. You might find him on the soccer pitch with his son or nestled in a big chair with a history book and a martini.

Jeff Graves is the “closer”. He’ll ask the tough questions, make the deal work and leave everyone smiling in the end. Bottom line is that Jeff cares about people and understands them. This is especially evident with his daughter who he plans the most thoughtful events for (yes that was him at the pop concert, the “American Girl” doll store and maybe in that limo during a mani-pedi day). He’ll do anything for her and his soft side really comes out in recruiting as well. He’ll see your point of view and will find a solution that works for everyone. He’s been recruiting longer than American’s have known or cared about soccer. Somehow he convinces one of us to get his lunch every day and yet we all think he is the best guy in town.

Taylor is the “young gun” here at Neighbors. We’d give him a hard time about it if he wasn’t so darn much like Keith! Taylor was raised as an agency recruiter at Robert Half International and combines his tenacity and commitment to success to each interaction. Taylor is a particularly passionate sports fan and competitor, though we fear his dreams for NBA stardom may never be realized… He may need to settle for more reasonable endeavors: he’s a closet musician, tech nerd, and a sucker for random facts (the "Stuff You Should Know" podcast tops his Tuesday and Thursday priority list). He prides himself on using his keen intuition to highlight the more nuanced strengths of his candidates and clients and ultimately bring people together.
