Avenica Poised for Growth, Builds Upon Business Development Team

Posted on: March 13th, 2019

After an exciting and prosperous 2018, and as we look forward to 2020, growth will be a recurring theme at Avenica. Growth in each member of the Avenica team as we all continue to learn and develop, growth in the ways we’ll be better able to serve our clients, growth in our new client development, and growth in the number of candidates we’re able to match to new opportunities because of those new clients. To keep up with and continue to fuel our rapid growth, we’ve brought in new talent to build out our Business Development Team.

Jack McGinnity comes to Avenica with a degree in Sport Management from the University of Minnesota and a passion for problem solving. In his new role at Avenica, he plans to build upon and utilize his sales experience to develop relationships and help identify solutions for clients that allow them to better focus on their business. As a recent graduate who knows about the challenges of life after college, Jack embodies what it means to work at Avenica. “We’re helping recent grads kickstart their careers. Not only do we match our clients with the right entry-level candidates for their open positions, we’re helping recent graduates take the first steps towards starting rewarding careers and full-fledged adulthood.”

Josie Crepeau, also an alum of the University of Minnesota, majored in Strategic Communication and plans to use her interpersonal skills to focus on creating and fostering long-lasting, mutually-beneficial client relationships. With a tenacious work ethic and a vision for the future, Josie is excited to build upon the strong foundation and name Avenica has built in the entry-level recruiting space. “I’m excited to help Avenica grow and get to the next level. I believe in what we’re doing and think we are uniquely positioned to help organizations meet their business goals through matching them with the right talent.”

As a University of North Dakota alum with a degree in Management and a minor in Sports Business, Alex Harvey joins Avenica with a strong drive for success and the willingness to take on new challenges. He also shares in Avenica’s mission to help college grads get started on successful career paths and knows the value of serving the entry-level industry. “Avenica works because our clients receive talent specifically matched to their culture, business, and specific needs. Our cost-neutral rate and access to a robust college network is truly an asset for companies of all sizes.”

Jared Phillips, the Vice President of Sales and Business Development at Avenica, is excited to watch these three new employees learn, grow, and thrive in their positions.

“Avenica practices what we preach. We find extremely talented people who are passionate about our mission and give them the training they need to excel. From top to bottom, everyone at Avenica understands how their job contributes to our long-term goals as a company. I’ve never worked anywhere that was this adept at hiring difference makers. And our process extends to the work we do for our clients, which is why they keep coming back,” Phillips said.
