GTS Technology Solutions

Staffing Team

At GTS, staffing is about relationships.

Those placed by GTS – last week, last year, five years ago – get a regular check-in call from the GTS Staffing team member who placed them.

If you’re a client, you can expect that your Staffing account representative is up to date on your organization and market, so that they can respond instantly and intelligently when you have a new requirement.

Since relationships are important to us, we’d like to introduce ourselves:
