Business Development Manager
Josh joined the MK Personnel team in 2015 as the Business Development Manager. This was Josh’s first foray into the staffing and recruiting industry, and it was love at first sight.
Before coming to MK Personnel, Josh worked in the non-profit sector for more than a dozen years, in Oklahoma City and Houston. His responsibilities included fundraising, marketing, communications, management, and administration at social service organizations, including a shelter for battered women and a school for homeless children.
Josh’s time working at these organizations taught him many skills that apply to his Business Development Manager role at MK Personnel. Beyond traditional marketing and sales skills, Josh developed a strong sense of empathy, a deep appreciation for the power of corporate/organizational culture, and the ability to focus during chaos. He also learned the vital importance of building authentic relationships.
“Having the right people can make all the difference to a team. When a client comes back and says ‘You were right, you gave us the best person and our company’s better for it’…I just love that!”
Outside of the office, Josh enjoys biking, volunteering for his favorite local charities, and finding a new spot for dinner or happy hour.
