Director, Financial Reporting & Accounting – Fortune 500 Publicly Traded Global Company
I’ve had the great opportunity to partner with Ryan for the past 5 years on a number of important hires into our organization. In partnering with Ryan, we’ve been able to collaborate on identifying highly successful professionals with the talent and skill-set to be difference makers in our team while also possessing the intangibles to thrive in and positively influence our organization’s culture. Whether its a partner working through a hiring process, or a trusted resource to simply remain in contact with and exchange ideas and insights, I have the highest level of trust in my working relationship with Ryan and look forward to continuing that partnership.
Our business model has been developed by our founder through over 12 years of experience in the accounting/finance staffing industry on top of 10 years of direct experiences in both Big 4 public accounting and corporate accounting.
In developing an expertise in our industry and through experiences during the past 12+ years starting off working for another staffing firm then co-founding a firm that he built from the ground up then sold in the Fall 2018, key attributes have been identified, learned, and addressed in creating Apogee Resources Group (ARG).
One such key attribute of assurance that you need to ask and know before engaging any external staffing firm is whether or not their entire internal team that will service your needs have direct accounting/finance backgrounds both in earning a Bachelor’s degree with a Business major along with at least several years of direct accounting/finance experience working in public accounting and/or corporate accounting.
If the answer is “no”, then here is what you need to know that they won’t tell you. Their business model is a “sales” model where their internal team has metrics and quotas that are their primary focus. This is a major “red flag” as to whose best interest do they have in mind. If you want to trust your hiring needs to a staffing agency whose focus is to hit a metric to collect a finders fee for slinging resumes at you, then as a professional services firm we are not for you.
In our view, such a sales business model is unacceptable for many reasons. Especially because we are trusted with peoples’ careers and livelihoods in our profession.

Internal Audit Manager – Fortune 500 Publicly Traded Global Company
Our department has a risk-based approach that requires a higher level of critical thinking, business acumen, and communication skills than may be needed in other internal audit and accounting roles. Ryan carefully listens to understand the characteristics we are seeking, and has consistently provided us with strong candidates who meet our needs. Over the years, we have been able to partner with Ryan to successfully fill several open positions on the team. Thank you!
