We sat down with Todd and asked him the following:
What do you like most about working at Kimmel & Associates?
The trust, the flexibility, and the reward for effort.
What is one thing you learned early in your career that has made you successful?
“If you seek, you will find.”
What is your greatest strength in your role?
Resilience and determination.
What can clients and candidates expect from you?
I am consistent and have their best interests at heart.
What makes you different from other recruiters in your industry?
I believe I am different because I care. My team also gives me great credibility – no one has done it better or longer than Kimmel.
Share a successful placement story or describe the most rewarding experience of your career.
My second placement ever was a Maintenance Manager position on top of a mountain in Colorado, in the middle of nowhere. I searched every state in the country to find someone and finally did.
Do you have a favorite quote?
“A little persistence goes a long way.” I was in a very difficult situation once, and no one could reach me to help me. On the phone, a friend gave me some wisdom and these words of encouragement. They have rung true in my life. I had to really persist to get out of where I was, and I did. I have always remembered this. Another is a quote by Marine Corps General Chesty Butler: “We are surrounded by the enemy; we have them right where we want them. Attack in every direction.” If you don’t give up, you will win.
What causes are you passionate about?
The gospel of Jesus Christ, and those who cannot speak for themselves.
Deer hunting; family vacations at Oak Island, NC; sitting on any beach. The Oakland Raiders were my local team, and I am also a UNC Chapel Hill fan because my sister and my daughter are both graduates.
