Jim - CEO/OWNER BY PROXY

Jim

CEO/OWNER BY PROXY
Jim is a graduate of Ball State University in Muncie, IN. He graduated with a degree in Accounting and immediately went to work for the International CPA firm Ernst and Ernst (now Ernst and Young). After three years at E&E, Jim moved to Supervalu where he began a 31 year career that saw him rise from the Division Accounting Manager in Fort Wayne IN to President of Supervalu’s Northern Region based in Hopkins MN. In the President’s role Jim was responsible for all facets of customer service for over 2,500 grocery stores in 19 states and the island of Guam. In 2012, Jim decided to pursue a lifelong dream of owning his own business; After an exhaustive review of options, he chose Montu Staffing because of the tremendous people he saw working there and how much they cared about the company and it’s customers. “I have been in the business of serving businesses all of my adult life and everything I saw at Montu told me this was a great opportunity. I was impressed with company from A to Z, but the thing that really stood out for me was the quality of the staff – and they have not disappointed as they are the most customer focused group of people I have ever had the pleasure to work with” Jim’s aspirations are to grow Montu and create a stable, family oriented company for all of our employees. We will grow by continuing to provide world-class customer service with our strong Midwestern Values at the core of that service. Jim is married and has 4 children. He is a sports enthusiast who has successfully made the transition from a lifelong Bears and White Sox fan to an avid Vikings and Twins Fan. He plays “double bogey” golf, cross country skis all winter long and tries to keep up with Brice on his bicycle in the summertime.

COO- TRANSPORTATION SERVICES
Phone: 952-513-7426
Brice is the Chief Operating Officer of Transportation. He has over 30 years of experience in the transportation industry, in operations positions from dispatch to sales and customer service. He has also been in the staffing business for 9 years helping build relationships in transportation creating a customer base to provide qualified CDL drivers for. He became very interested and fascinated in the staffing industry at his job with UPS Logistics where for the first time in his career, he used temporary drivers to run extra routes, fill in for ill drivers, vacations, etc.,. He inquired to his supervisors, “why the Temp Drivers?” and was told a) on September 2nd, business would slow down and 4 drivers would have to be laid off, b) The temp agency(Labor All) would cover workman’s comp issues, c) The temp agency would cover other issues such as unemployment, drug testing, background checks, payroll, child support issues. He was hooked! This concept of using temp drivers provided a lot of flexibility to run the operation efficiently. Besides trying to grow the transportation part of the business, he oversees and gets directly involved in the sales and marketing of what has become Montu Staffing Solutions. He also has been involved in the light industrial side providing workers where needed. But, and most importantly, he is very proud of the staffing team he has helped to build at Labor All/Montu. Every member of the Montu Staff has been instrumental in providing great customer service, working through problems and thus making the company grow. “Everyone here wants to pitch in and go beyond what their duties are and I have full confidence in everyone when delegating duties to all.” Brice and his wife, Debrah are the empty nest parents of three grown children who are on there own and who knows when they will get married! Brice fishes, golfs, bikes and takes in a lot of Twins games with family. Contact Brice at Brice@MontuStaffing.com
