Prior to starting the Morisey-Dart Group, Linda’s 25+ years with a Fortune 50 company gave her the opportunity to lead their national staffing organization as well as recruit for senior management positions in the U.S. and Europe. Her career in staffing has included hiring for a broad range of disciplines and for positions from entry level to senior management. Many of the individuals she has recruited are in positions as senior executives and officers of major corporations today.
Linda brings a staffing competency as well as an in-depth knowledge and understanding of sales, marketing, engineering and manufacturing. Linda’s knowledge of these disciplines comes from positions she held in each area. In the sales area, she was responsible for taking a specific product sales force that had been failing and turning this 100-person team into a productive, highly motivated, profit-producing organization. This was done with work in core competencies, coaching and critical staffing. The trust she earned from the senior management staff and sales people were reflected in the results.
Linda and her partner, Dave Dart, have built a search firm with individuals who possess strong industry experience and a history of success in these industries. Linda, Dave and the team build strong collaborative partnerships based on knowledge, integrity, trust and total commitment to candidate and client delight.
Vice-President – Residential & Commercial Construction
Recruiting has been Jill’s passion for over 20 years. "I love being able to impact lives and help companies succeed - when done right, recruiting is the most rewarding job and I am honored daily for the trust that people put in me."
Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, Jill applies her core Midwest values of honesty, integrity, hard work, and truly caring for each of her clients and candidates to her daily life along with her faith. When asked what sets her apart, she prides herself in listening to understand what is spoken, being keen to what is not, asking meaningful questions, and looking at situations through the other person's lens. "I would never give advice I wouldn't take myself."
Jill has been on all sides of the recruiting industry from Temporary Staffing to Corporate HR to Permanent Recruiting. She has a vast amount of success working as a generalist serving every industry under the sun in both Ohio as well as the unique Southwest Florida market. She joined the Morisey-Dart Group in 2010 where she has consistently exceeded her clients’ expectations and successfully placed volumes of candidates.
Currently, she serves as the Vice President and has hands-on leadership responsibility for the following disciplines:
- Construction: Residential and Commercial within the Southeastern US. Positions include Director and Executive leadership roles, Construction Managers, Project Managers, Sales, Marketing, Designers, Land Development, Purchasing, Finance, Accounting, Administrative Support and more. From the C-Suite to the sticks and bricks of the industry, she is heavily networked and can find the top-performers who culturally fit.
- Southwest Florida Local Market: This market requires recruiters who understand the nuances of living in SW Florida. She has successfully placed candidates in support positions to senior leadership roles in a variety of industries including healthcare, insurance, legal, banking, construction, manufacturing, hospitality, property management, and not-for-profit. This is where industry specialization is outpaced by local knowledge.
"I look forward to creating a refreshing new approach to partner with you and prove my dedication to finding top talent while creating a no-hassle recruiting process."
Steve Spencer, CSAM
Vice-President, Managed Services Practice
(Those awarded the CSAM designation within the MRINetwork organization are recognized leaders who are consistently “top-ranked performers”!)
Precision recruiting occurs only by actively listening to the needs of clients. Complete understanding of their requirements leads to a better search process, superior candidates, and an effective result. Finding capable candidates who are passionate about contributing to an organization instead of just finding a new job is the essence of good recruiting.
Steve combines his education, work experience and industry knowledge to drive results for his clients every day.
While completing his MBA, Steve worked in an IBM data center and ran their local and wide area networking operations. Upon graduation, Steve joined Wang Laboratories and excelled in a variety of technical and sales positions, being promoted seven times in ten years.
At ADP Dealer Services, he acquired a “street-level” competitive sales instinct, and then went to Xerox to lead the transition of a sales force from analog to digital products. As an area director in NYC, he developed a new team in the Channels Group and drove the highest growth in the country.
Recruited into Xerox Global Services, he ran the Business Partnership Program operations, driving record growth and revenue for Document Solutions sales. After Xerox, Steve worked at two small companies, developing reseller and financial services channels. Since joining the Morisey-Dart Group, Steve has brought a wealth of industry knowledge, business networking and people skills to bear for clients and candidates alike.
Angeline re-joined Morisey-Dart Group in May of 2014. Coming aboard as the firm’s research and marketing administrator, she is responsible for various online marketing, copywriting and social media aspects of the business, as well as lead generation, research and retaining candidate information.
She graduated from Florida International University in Miami from the School of Journalism and Mass Communications.
Dir. Recruitment Services, Retail: Sourcing & Merchandising
Mickey is a global retail recruitment professional in sourcing and merchandising and has been in recruitment since 1985. It’s her passion – she loves the recruiting business. Not many businesses give one the opportunity to bring such positive change to people’s lives.
Mickey has a sense of humor and an ability to connect with people that lends itself to being involved in a business where there’s such large personal investment and ultimately, leap of faith being made. Not only are companies hiring candidates who will have a direct and immediate effect on their company culture, but experienced candidates are making huge changes both professionally and personally when they join a new company. Uprooting a family to make a transcontinental move is a huge change even if it is for a fantastic opportunity! The more at ease people are with Mickey, the better the entire process is from both the candidate and client company perspectives.
As a global retail recruitment professional, her business is built on solid relationships. Anyone can find a name these days – but to be able to really understand what a client company is looking for or to truly appreciate what a candidate is seeking or motivated by, takes a special skill. Mickey was fortunate enough to have great mentor recruiters in her industry, and she “grew up” learning the nuances of finding the hidden talent in the marketplace. Good skills are refined over time and good recruiters have been in this business for a while. This business was in her mentors’ DNA, and now it’s in hers!
Mickey specializes in global retail recruitment: hardlines, softlines and food. It’s her focus – it’s what she does.
