We are the first ever tech-centric recruiting company that leverages a crowd sourced referral platform and an innovative training bootcamp to address the widening talent gap.
It was manual, arduous, mindless, and cold. So, the founders got together for a 30-minute-happy-hour-turned-4-hour-discussion at a seedy dive bar about how they could do things differently. They walked out of there on cloud nine ready to change things up. For the next few years they learned, tested, and explored new ways to approach IT recruiting and consulting.
Finally, they decided it was time for a long-awaited industry makeover.
In a business that has become very transactional, we put people first. For candidates, this is your livelihood and the next step in your illustrious career. For hiring managers, good resources ensure that you deliver on your promises and get that coveted promotion. And for our internal employees, they are the folks that make it all happen. Customer experience is at our core.
Technology sets us apart. We build and buy tools that streamline the recruiting process so that employers and employees can focus on each other.
In the business of people, process is the only constant. We provide a consultative approach to recruitment that combines market expertise with deep relationships, and industry leading best practices to find that perfect match.

At night, Rob’s mind races over the possibilities of revolutionizing the employment process. His mantra has always been “work to live” so it’s no surprise that he wound up in the recruiting industry finding people jobs they love. He, like many of us, recognized early on that the recruiting had grown stale, emotionless, and transactional so he vowed to do it differently.
He spent countless hours in the basement of the business school at Ohio University, struggling his way through code as an MIS grad, before realizing he would rather help solve people problems for enterprise business. He spent 10 years helping to grow a $25m employment company into a $500m juggernaut where he reported to the founder of the company. He started a very successful “first of its kind” division that ultimately gave him the courage (and the cajones) to start AP.
In his free time, Rob is eyeing real estate, traveling the world, sipping bourbon, and eating his body weight in sushi.
