Brinkman joins GDH in the newly created role of Regional Director of Southern Field Operations. Brinkman comes to GDH with more than 20 years of IT staffing experience, most recently working for a multi-billion dollar global staffing company. Chris progressively advanced his responsibilities over his tenure, relocating five times with his previous company and managed branch offices across 12 states. The regions and districts he managed had revenues in excess of $100 million. Chris has been a frequent media spokesperson and serves as an expert on hiring trends, recruitment, and other workplace issues. He was featured in local newspapers, local radio outlets, and national television broadcasts; he has presented at numerous local and national technology conferences, including Fusion 14, AITP, IAMCP and The HDI. Brinkman won multiple sales awards through his tenure but is most proud of his Above and Beyond award from the US National Guard for support of our military. He is a graduate of The Ohio State University.
Brinkman's addition to this newly created role, with his many years of experience and success in the IT workforce industry, reinforces GDH's commitment to continuous improvement and growth.
"I am very excited to join the GDH Consulting family! What I learned during the extensive and personal interviewing and onboarding process convinced me this is the growth-oriented, winning company with whom I wanted to share my experience and continue to develop as a leader. The people I have had the pleasure of meeting are very compelling and impressive but not just based on their combined IT workforce solutions experience but also evidenced by their high employee retention rates. I am convinced our company, that specializes in IT Professional Services, IT Staffing, RPO, Managed Services, IT Government, and Engineering, IS the firm to watch in 2020 and beyond", Brinkman said.
"We are extremely excited to add someone of Chris's caliber to the already talented team here at GDH. His guidance and leadership across the southern region will better position us for growth now, and more importantly, when we emerge from the COVID pandemic as a stronger company." – Blaine Caples, CRO
In the new position of Regional Director, Chris will oversee the Southern markets for GDH Consulting, including Texas, Georgia, and Alabama, and expand GDH Consulting operations to additional southern markets.
