Branch Manager - Augusta Office
Dawn was recently promoted to Branch Manager of our corporate office in Augusta! She, Cathy, and Nettie have a long history, having all started their staffing careers together at another
firm back in the late 1990's. Dawn has placed thousands of individuals in both temporary and permanent positions in Central Maine, and her knowledge of our Client base and culture, and expertise
in placing just the right candidate, has made her an invaluable member – not only to our Team, but to our Clients. Often we hear "the greatest value that we have in working with you is that you really
listen to our needs and only refer candidates that are qualified to fit our position and culture." Dawn is an active member of the Kennebec Valley Human Resource Association, and she and her family live in Chelsea.
