Please tell me a little bit about yourself

I’ve spent the majority of my career in the Oil & Gas recruitment industry. This industry is an evolving space that I learn from daily. What I enjoy the most are the moments when people’s careers and even their lives are changed with the opportunities presented to them.

You look after the US market for Applica, what type of projects are you working on at the moment?

We are working with numerous clients on exciting projects across the Gulf Coast from various refinery projects, LNG, onshore drilling and much more.

How is the US market currently?

That’s a tricky question, global markets have given new light for clients to focus on various new project initiatives that they otherwise may have had on the backburner. However, at the same time, we have seen that funding for new projects poses a challenge as clients deal with supply and demand constraints.

Why do you believe Applica has been so successful in the US?

First and foremost, Applica has been so successful due to the contributions of our incredible team and their determination. We have success because we build authentic relationships within our own team, candidates and clients, and prove day in and day out that we are a solutions driven company. We are out of the box thinkers, so when a client approaches us with a need, we focus on the specific details for that particular client to deliver unique custom-tailored solutions to achieve their needs.

What are Applica’s plans for the future in this market?

Applica is a young company and growing quickly despite the challenges that we all faced during Covid. We came out stronger than before and have reached incredible results. Our goal is to continue our growth strategy for our internal team, to add new locations based our clients’ project needs, and continue to broaden our client portfolio and contractor community. We aim to be first choice when candidates are searching for their next opportunity and when our clients look to staff projects globally.

Tell me something about you that a lot of people don’t know about you.

I love tennis! While I don’t get as much time to hit the courts as I would like, and not an expert by any means, I enjoy it whenever possible!
